Private French Teacher

Hello my name is Myriam and I am French. I have had the privilege to teach my language for many years for all ages and levels. Through reading speaking and exercises I will endeavor to make it fun and comprehensive. My typical approach is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and engage in real life situations. So we will not only get into the study of the language but will create scenarios to learn how to speak it.
On another note I'm not your typical teacher. I love to know my students who they are and what their interests are so that I am not just your teacher but also your friend. I can't wait to meet you and enjoy the journey together into becoming a French speaking individual!

About Myriam

I was born in France, graduated with a French degree and started to teach in the early 80's. I have taught all ages and all levels. I have travelled to 25 countries and often was used as a translator in many occasions. For me it is not just about learning the language but the culture and it's charm

Myriam is an amazing teacher. She is professional, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to helping me learn as much as possible. She makes sure I have the opportunity to see, hear and speak with each linguistic idea we are learning about. She also tests my knowledge to figure out where I need help which means that after every lesson, I feel that I am learning more than I knew before we started. She is a gem and the lessons are the highlight of my week.

Private French Teacher

I have studied French since I was a child, and continued studies throughout my undergraduate years. After finishing my music graduate degrees, I pursued continuing education via private study with a native French citizen and language professor.

While I didn't pursue a language degree, many European and native French speakers and teachers have verified the authenticity of my accent and command of the language. While I continue my pursuit of ever increasing skills and fluency, at this point in time I would be most helpful as a tutor or instructor for beginner and intermediate levels of French language learners.

About Jami

Taking a "road less traveled" as both a violinist and a flutist, Jami has spent a lifetime pursuing achievements on two diverse orchestral instruments. She is an active free lance musician on both instruments in Pittsburgh, PA and the metropolitan Kansas City area. She also performed frequently in

Jamie is one of those stellar people who is good at everything she does. She is a first rate teacher, performing violinist, Flutist and scholar. I recommend her without any hesitation.
Diana
I was in my mid 50s at the time I began violin lesson with Jami. As an adult beginner, I was apprehensive about learning the violin. I had no familiarity with the violin or string instruments and I also had concerns regarding scheduling lessons due to an often erratic work schedule and a busy family life. Several violin teachers I had contacted prior to Jami were unwilling to teach an adult beginner.

Jami was an amazing teacher! She was personable, encouraging and alleviated all my fears and concerns. She understood my busy schedule and was very accommodating. The lessons were more relaxed than I had initially anticipated. It did not take long before I began feeling comfortable handling the violin and bow. Through Jami, I also learned a great deal about the history and construction of the violin, music for the violin and music theory.

Jami taught a mix of Suzuki, scales and multiple technique and method books; all complementing each other on my path to progressing as a violinist. As an adult, it was nice to gradually incorporate more tunes a mature adult would appreciate playing while continuing to build on the basics. After the first few months, I particularly enjoyed learning how to play violin duets with Jami or having Jami accompany me on the piano. I always left my lessons with a feeling of accomplishment.

I only ceased lessons due to Jami relocating, but I am looking forward to online lessons once I am more technologically capable of doing so. You will not be disappointed if choosing Jami as a teacher!
Katya
I have worked with Jami Bale for over ten years. She has deep knowledge of both violin and flute, and has profound skills in chamber music. Ms. Bale is demanding yet very compassionate teacher, her students excel at a fast pace and make wonderful professional and amateur musicians.
Ms. Bale was an irreplaceable member of the Chamber Music Seminar faculty and Pittsburgh Youth Concert Orchestra.
Whether the student needs to only keep up with the school curriculum or place a top chair in a youth orchestra, Ms. Bale will be there for you every inch of the way.

I will be focusing on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone, for example as some students struggle to learn English on their own with this methodology. I can recommend websites and books.

"Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.
LINGYI
I have been having French lessons with Isabelle for more than 6 months. I definitely have learned a lot! Isabelle is very patient and flexible about different learning methods. I highly recommend her!

"I have studied French for more than a year and I have completed a second series of lessons with Isabelle in which we focused on pronunciation. I think that having a teacher, especially a native speaker like Isabelle, to help with the pronunciation is essential when learning French. She answered all of my grammar questions as well and she taught me a lot about France and French culture. I found all the lessons very enjoyable and informative."
