I can especially help students who are already studying French, but need additional assistance in mastering the grammar, pronunciation, and usage of the language, with an emphasis on written French.

About Julie

I am a professional musician, specializing in traditional American and Irish music and song; I can, however, also teach classical guitar and beginning-intermediate violin. My CD, "American Stranger," has received critical acclaim and I have authored two books on DADGAD guitar for Mel Bay Publications.

I taught myself guitar at the age of thirteen, but took three years of lessons at Washington University, where I also studied English and French. As an adult I became interested in fingerstyle guitar in open tunings, especially DADGAD. I am, however, happy to teach in standard tuning--including basic guitar proficiency, classical guitar, and "folk" guitar.

I have played violin since I was eleven, taking lessons until the age of sixteen and playing in both high school orchestra and the local youth symphony. I later learned to sus

pend much of my classical technique in order to play both old-time and traditional Irish fiddle as authentically as possible; but I still retain my initial training and apply good basic violin technique to my fiddle and (of course) her violin teaching, while tailoring it to the musical idioms of each of students.

I have also studied voice, which again, however, I have never allowed to interfere with my performance of traditional songs--largely because I had developed a traditional approach to the singing of both American southern mountain repertory and traditional Irish song many years before receiving any formal instruction. This training, however, has given me greater insight into how to get the most out of your voice for almost any style.

I also taught myself to play lap dulcimer, basing my approach on the Eastern Kentucky styles associated with Jean Ritchie, Barbara Edwards, and Anne MacFie—that is, primarily using a small dowel stick or noter to sound the melody, and playing counter-melodies for song accompaniments.

My clawhammer banjo-playing is influenced by various Appalachian instrumentalists and accompanists (including Dock Boggs, Clarence Ashley, Hobart Smith, and Lily May Ledford), but my style is also influenced by years of playing with midwestern and southern-style fiddlers.

I welcome students ages 10 or above, and have learned to adapt my teaching style to the individual student, helping each one to make the most of his or her talents and enthusiasms, while emphasizing sound technique and good practice habits.

I also teach academic subjects, especially English (in which I hold a Ph.D.) and French (in which I hold a B.A.). In English, I emphasize good grammar and solid composition skills and try to get my students as excited as I am about everything from sentence structure to Shakespeare.

We had some trouble with the audio on her end, but once we got going, it went well. I spoke and understood a lot of French in my first hour! Julie is going to help me with singing in French. I'm so excited.

Many people are talented as performers but not gifted as instructors - Julie is most definitely both. She uses her keen ear to let you know your strengths, and finds productive ways to help you improve weak points. She lives and breathes traditional music and it is always a true delight to learn from her.

I have been taking lessons in classical style guitar from Julie for about two years. She has patiently brought me through increasingly more difficult technique by choosing a wide variety of challenging but enjoyable pieces to practice. I am gradually working my way up the fret towards the 5th position. She has helped me with theory, including rhythm, the major and minor scales and chord building. Her empathy is a particular blessing for me because of my poor eyesight and the arthritis in my wrists, hands and fingers.”

Hi, I'm Jacqueline and I specialize in French tutoring for students of all ages. I have taught over 120 French students including at most local Bay Area schools as well as many out-of-state. I work with each student to create a program tailored to their individual goals and needs. I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and overall fluency.

About Jacqueline

Hi, I'm Jacqueline and I specialize in French tutoring for students of all ages. I have taught over 120 French students at all levels including beginners, AP students, and adult learners. I work with each student to create a program tailored to their individual goals and needs. I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and overall fluency.

When it comes to learning French, I believe that speaking experience is just as important as learning grammar and vocabulary. I emphasize speaking skills and give students the opportunity to practice this throughout my lessons. For students who need help with grammar (one of the trickiest things to learn in French!), I use my experience both as a student and teacher to simplify difficult concepts.

Our family has found Jacqueline to be an awesome tutor for our high school daughter. Not only is she kind, thorough and patient, but Jacqueline always makes it a point to find out what the local high school teachers are teaching and what methods they're using. She has a very friendly and approachable manner and loves what she teaches.

Lesson and teacher were great! Although only an hour in duration, I feel I have learned a weeks worth of language.

I was born and raised in the Loire Valley of France (the "Valley of the Kings"), where the purest form of French is spoken. Contrary to what you may have been told by other teachers, the accent learned in Paris is harsh and jarring to most people, much like the New York City accent sounds rough to most Americans. But, having also lived in Paris for 22 years, I can teach that accent, too, if that is what you prefer.

In my numerous years of teaching French I have brought many students to complete fluency using the unique, proprietary teaching method I developed.

I teach a full range of students: from complete beginners, to people preparing for travel, to university professors needing assistance in book translations.

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled. I also touch on the etymology of words and how English and French are frequently interrelated. This is a great way for ...

About Eric

I was born and raised in the Loire Valley of France (the "Valley of the Kings"), where the purest form of French is spoken. I have a passion for the French language as well as for teaching.

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled.

Throughout my teaching career I have taught more than 500 students in France, the UK, and the USA. I have lived in Florida for the past 10 years.

I am an avid writer, enjoying the metaphorical nature of French, and I have an extensive background in French literature.

Contrary to what you may have been told by other teachers, the accent learned in Paris is harsh and jarring to most people, much like the New York City accent sounds crude to most Americans. But, having also lived in Paris for 22

years, I can teach that accent, too, if that is what you prefer.

In my numerous years of teaching French I have brought many students to complete fluency using the unique, proprietary teaching method I developed. All along your learning process I will give you key points to focus on that, when implemented, I guarantee will bring you to fluency.

I teach a full range of students: from complete beginners, to people preparing for travel, to American high school French teachers wanting to enhance their understanding of the language, to university professors needing assistance in book translations.

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled.

My ultimate reward will be seeing you progress in your understanding of French and your confidence in speaking it. Let's begin your journey now!

Private French Teacher

I grew up in a French school leaning the history and ins and out of the French language. I have experienced the culture first hand through my several travels to France. I have also taken Latin classes which enabled me to learn more about the history pf the language. With me you will not only discover a new language, but will also uncover the beautiful history behind it.

About Mirchaye

My name is Mirchaye pronounced "Mer-Shy." I was born in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, where I was raised and completed my high school education. I attended a Lycee Francais, which is where I learned French. Fan Fact: It was the first language I learned how to read and write in even before my native language: Amharic.

At 17, I moved to the U.S., where I currently reside pursuing a career in Communications/Media.

For as long as I can remember, I loved to write and teach. My love for writing began when I got my first journal in the 8th grade. I loved it and wrote in it literally everyday. And, I first started teaching as an English Teaching Assistant volunteer at an orphanage in Ethiopia. I then also started teaching French.

Once I moved to the US and was attending college, I saw the need for language tutors so I applied

for a job as French Tutor. I worked there till I graduated college. Another fun fact: My first paid job was as a French Tutor. After college, I taught private French classes to high school and college students.

I now speak about 4 languages fluently. I will make learning fun & exciting. And, coming from a background of speaking different languages I know hoe best to teach someone a totally different language. I understand the learning curve in other words. I am currently teaching my husband, who's American, Amharic and it's been fun.

I look forward to working with you.

Phillippe was a wonderful, patient instructor who clearly cares about his students and is dedicated to their learning. He found ways to make learning fun, recommending books articles, websites, tv shows, and movies that would help me learn but also that he knew I would find interesting. Phillippe was flexible and responsive if something wasn’t working and willing to try lots of different techniques to make concepts stick. On top of being naturally capable, Phillippe was just a lovely person to chat and practice speaking with; his interest in the world around him ensured our conversations and classes were never dull. I achieved my language goals after a few months of study with him, and he made the process a pleasure. I would highly recommend him to anyone, and consider myself lucky to have had him as a teacher.

There is an art to instruction where you are helping to light the way without causing frustration or embarrassment. Roselyne does a great job."

"Elsa is a really fun, interesting and really patient teacher. An hour lesson just flys by and I’ve learned so much from her. She is really good at figurin
g out what level I am at in French and then pushing me a litttle to build on what I know and help me understand the proper way to word something and use past, present and future tense verbs.
Because she’s French, her accent is perfect, but she also speaks perfect English.
I’m so excited to return to France and to use all that I’ve learned from her!"

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!"
