Le français facile et rigolo c'est ici ! I was born in Paris' suburbs (Nogent-Sur-Marne). French is my mother's tongue but it is not enough to be a good teacher. I got a degree in French literature in 2002 (added to English, German, and Russian). I am a patient teacher for all levels, and all ages. Also people say I am super fun to work with. Feel welcome to ask for help either for personal or business purpose. Le français est une langue qui a beaucoup de charme, le secret est juste de pratiquer ! C'est facile ! Commençons avec les basiques, puis étape par étape nous progresserons ensemble !
About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour! I believe the best way to teach is to make it simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success. -------- QUALITY FIRST -------- Everybody wants the best. I believe quality is the most important. I also believe each person is unique, therefore each student should have tailored lessons. -------- HAPPY TEACHING -------- Teaching should be a positive and fun experience. I believe in a personalized and genuine approach. In my experience the benefits are enormous: we save a lot of time, energy, and since it is way more suited to the student, we are more efficient = happy! Hopefully Wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.
-------- PHOTOGRAPHY -------- Photography has been my full-time job since 2003. I am a 34-year-old French-American man living and working
in Minneapolis Minnesota. I have +16 years of expertise as a professional photographer. Recent clients include Porsche Minneapolis, Taste of the NFL, Medal of Honor Convention Twin Cities, and Women's Leadership Trust Forum. I will be your teacher today.
-------- WHY THE MOVE TO THE USA? -------- I am a husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 16 and 14. They all are musicians or artists.
-------- MY FRENCH HERITAGE -------- From 1995 to 2002 I primarily I studied French literature, English literature, and German, and even Russian for 3 years when I was in high school in France.
I was born in France so the language is my mother's tongue. My parents are Monique and Alain, typical French names. I have an older brother (Frédéric) and a younger sister (Johanna) who lives in Québec, Canada now. I do not practice German and Russian at the moment but I am a specialist of French language. If you want to test my French here I am!
-------- LE TEST FRANÇAIS: BIEN, OU QUOI ? -------- Comme on dit en français: "quand on me cherche on me trouve !" Le français, on l'appelle aussi la langue de Molière par opposition à l'anglais qui est la langue de Shakespeare. Le français c'est facile car il suffit de pratiquer souvent avec un bon prof' qui sait ce qu'il fait. Et voilà les amis c'est comme ça qu'on doit bien faire les choses en bonne et due forme ! Y'a pas d'secret vous pigez le truc on quoi? Si tu es d'accord dis-moi oui oui hoche de la tête mon ami ! Alors, tranquille le chat? T'inquiète biquette ? Ça roule ma poule ?
-------- MY PASSION FOR SOCIAL WORK -------- In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of nonprofit organization Association Sunyoga France, French branch of the main NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTRE, for scientific and spiritual research, agriculture, clothing, taking care of orphans and elderly people, with a health center and an education center.
Our 7 humanitarian programs focus on creating a Self-Dependent and Sustainable Global Family Home University. As we speak, we have people from +14 countries working together towards that goal.
I know the organization well since I have been working with them since 2012 in France, India, Serbia, and now in the USA! I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It is called Universal Peace Centre • SUNYOGA AMERICA.
-------- GLORIOUS CONCLUSION ABOUT TEACHING -------- Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you for your trust and friendship.
Wishing us all best success, peaceful, blissful, healthy, and enlightened life. Merci! Gratitude.

I will tailor my lessons to each student's need, French is one of my native languages and I am certified to teach it K-12. I am a full time French teacher at Slippery rock Area High School and available to teach online after school and weekends.
I am certified in Arabic, French and BCIT ( Business. Computer and Technology) and taught all 3 in the Mount Lebanon School district in Pittsburgh, PA for 8 years before becoming the full time French Teacher at the SlipperyRock Area High School starting in August 2017, my current employment. After school and on weekends I tutor French and Arabic online and my students range from ages 6 to adult. I tailor my lessons to the needs of every student. I create materials and use whatever is necessary to make sure my students enjoy, learn and excel in the subject they are learning. In the summer I also work at Kindercare with the school age group for the summer camp activities.
Roula is fantastic. She makes the lesson not only informative, but fun. It is a pleasure to take lessons from her. I would recommend her highly. She can teach any age level. I did not know anything about French, but she is patient and kind. 6 Stars at least.

Roula is the best instructor that i got for my son's French class. I highly recommend using her knowledge and teaching skills.

It is a pleasure to study French with her. She makes learning fun!
Basic french, beginner students will have a handle of survival French by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough French to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions. If you want online class you must install Skype or Ovoo I don't have face time.
I have experience tutoring. Call Takelessons for more information.
I have tutored basic and intermediate Spanish to children, using Spanish songs and fun games for children. I have experience tutoring adults. I gave Spanish conversational classes, Spanish for Educators, Spanish for travelers and for people that works in the medical field. I have been giving conversational Spanish classes at park and recreation, I'm a certified interpreter translator. I used to work for global LT tutoring program and head start. You must have skype or Ovoo for the online classes. I want to be a tutor so I can share my passions with people who want support
Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!
Lessons are very personalized to each student's expectations, varying from purely conversational to more grammar-focused lessons. I believe that learning a language should be fun and useful!
I really enjoy teaching everything about the French and English languages. If you're looking to brush up on your French, looking for an after-school tutor for help in a French course or would like to start learning this lovely language, I am happy to personalize tutoring sessions to your goals!
I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor's of Arts in French, French Literature and Psychology. I have over 8 years of teaching experience. I have studied in Paris and lived in Tours, where I taught English to high school students preparing for the Baccalauréat. In the US, I have taught ESL courses to adults and French I-IV to high school students in the Jacksonville area.

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.
I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.
Come and join me!

i'm french native. I lived 6 years in Colombia. So I manage both languages perfectly. I wrote my own methods to learn French and Spanish. I've patience teaching and I always try to found the best tip to make you learning easiest. So... Nice to meet you !!
I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book. I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.
My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from The Netherlands and I started teaching since 1973. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Houston. I combine art with any language to teach children up to 2nd grade to make it fun. For any other student, I use my innovative method without books, some sites in the net and we immediately start speaking the language the student wants to learn. But I still have the best books on demand if needed. I customize my lessons to the needs of my students and I am available 24/7 for any questions to make it as easy as possible for my students, no matter their age. I make learning fun and interesting for all my students because I love what I am doing!
"I am taking French With Pascale as a refresher for myself. She makes her classes informative and fun. I enjoy her as an instructor."
"Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoy
able. I hope to continue."
"Roman is diligent, thorough and patient. Most importantly he is adaptable to your level of ability. I would recommend him highly."
"Roman is a wonderful French teacher. I am an absolute beginner with minimal understanding of the French language. During each lesson, Roman is quickly abl
e to identify my weaknesses and hone in on how to improve them. He also follows up with homework and materials after each class that is customized to my level. In just 7 or 8 hours of lessons, I feel comfortable putting basic sentences together and have grown immensely in understanding others speak Francaise. Thank you Roman!"
"Great experience. She really took time to discuss with my daughter her strengths/weaknesses so the session could be most beneficial. Very friendly and put
my daughter at ease quickly."
"He is the best. Information is presented in a very organized format"
"A wonderful teacher! Calm and collected. Never a problem. Very accommodating. Teaches at the pace you need."
Confused about conjugating verbs in the subjunctive mood? Tutor Carol Beth L. shares how to conjugate them and when you need to...
Le subjonctif is one of the most notorious subjects in French grammar for non-native speakers of French. It is a mood that expresses uncertainty and is often connected with feelings, emotions, wishes, or desires about a particular event. In fact, we English-speakers also have a subjunctive mood, but we don't often use it or realize when we do use it. Her …
