I was born and raised in Nice, France. I arrived in the United States in 2010, to study music in California. I got my Master degree from California State University Fullerton in 2010 and I am currently a last year doctorate student at the University of Miami. I have been a French tutor in both of my universities.

I have taught French to foreigner people in France since I was 18 years old (my mother has been doing that for over 30 years now) and since I arrived here to adults and students.

Through private lessons I can help you get ready for exams and midterms, help you improve your french or just offer you to have a conversation with a native speaker. I love my culture and would love to share it with you if you are interested.

About Claire

Hello, my name is Claire :) I am French and arrived in the US for the first time in August 2010 to study music. I am starting my second year of Doctorate in Music on a full scholarship at the University of Miami after earning a Master in Music Performance from California State University Fullerton on a full scholarship as well. I am also playing in a professional clarinet quartet called Four Play clarinet. My ultimate goal is to play clarinet and teach music at the University level.

I have the experience of teaching private clarinet lessons in France since 2006 and in America since 2010 and am seeking clarinet students of every level and age. I can help you prepare for high school band/university admission auditions or any other type of performances.

Also, as I am French, I was a French tutor at my University for 6 years and can hel

p you learn French, get ready for exams and midterms or just do conversation if you are more advanced.

I am a seasoned language teacher, of both adults and children. Making languages come alive through interesting anecdotes, songs, and stories, is my specialty. My schooling, from age four to 14, was 100% in French. Boy, did those nuns drill us in grammar!

About Bettina

I lived in Israel for over a decade, and graduated from the University of Jerusalem with degrees in Education and History. I regularly read Torah, chant megillot, and lead services in my synagogue.

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition process.

While languages fascinate me, and come easily to me, I understand that that is not the case for everyone. I am very patient, and willing to try different methods in order to succeed. I realize that some people learn best by seeing the materials, while others need to hear them, or even sing them! Others need to move their bodies and engage in

kinesthetic learning. I facilitate all these methods.
I have taught all ages, from preschoolers to the elderly. I have taught in schools, preschools, informal educational settings (like summer camps) as well as one-on-one privately.

I’m very flexible with timing, and available as often as you’d like, Sunday to Friday.

Bettina helped me to succeed at speaking French with my non-English speaking friends in Paris, on a recent trip to Paris. She helped me realize that I could speak the language again. Bettinas’ style, knowledge, and patience are some of her keys to my success in Paris. I appreciate her effort. I will continue in a manner such that I will not lose this progress. Merci beacoup!

Are you interested in learning new language? Or exploring a new culture in its own words? Look no further, I will help you discover and learn the French language in a very simple way. You will be able to start speaking French in no time by familiarizing it with your own language.

About Hend

As a person who speaks 3 languages and trying to learn a fourth one, i do know what is like to have the passion and the desire to learn new languages. I am a native Arabic speaker, I learned French and English since I was 3 years old, and currently I’m discovering a new language which is Spanish.

As a trilingual person, I know the importance of languages, as they helped me to shape my personality and open up to new cultures.

I moved to the United States of America 5 years ago. I took one year of ESL program just to refresh my memory and then I received my instructional aid certificate. I volunteered at Chaffey Adult school as an instructional aid for beginners and intermediate classes.

I look forward to meeting you, and help you discover and learn a new language.

Private French Teacher

The first thing I want to know is what the student wants help with and then we go from there. I taught middle school French for many years, tutored French once I retired in Maryland, have lived in France for two years and love teaching a subject I'm passionate about. My students tell me that I explain things in terms they can understand and that they love how excited I am about French. "It's contagious!" They also enjoy the anecdotes I share about French culture and traveling in France. I am also a travel writer and wrote a book about my travels, "Gap Year Girl: A Baby Boomer Adventure Across 21 Countries."

About Marianne

I am passionate about French and all things French and I love helping students learn or improve their skills. I explain things clearly so that students understand, I am patient and I make learning French fun rather than a chore. It can be intimidating to learn another language and I understand that very well as I have been improving my French since I was in high school. I structure my lesson plans specifically around what a student wants to learn and how s/he wants to learn it. We will go as slow or fast through the material as you'd like,

I was a Fresh major in college, did graduate work in France, worked for a French company and taught middle school French for many years. I loved being a teacher and I loved my students! I led several student trips to France and I treasure those experiences. One of my former French students wrote to

me when I retired: "You are the best teacher I ever had. You and your class were the only bright spots in all of middle school and I will never forget what you taught me."

I have also taught adults planning to travel to France or who are simply interested the basics of the language as well as cultural tips.

I would love to meet and help you!

I wanted to learn French for a business trip, but I was dreading it because I struggled with languages so much in high school. After working with Marianne, I was pleasantly surprised with how much easier it was than I expected. She really adapted to me and helped me figure out the best ways to learn. And she's very patient. Highly recommend!

Jen
Incroyable! Marianne has the patience of a saint! She loves French and teaching and it shows in how she worked with me. I really appreciate her creative approach in making the language come to life which makes it so much easier. And she tailors her lessons to what you want and how you best learn. If you want to learn French, I highly recommend working with Madame Bohr!

Ecaterina
Madame Bohr is by far one of the best instructors I’ve ever had. She truly cares about her students, and does everything that she can to make sure that they fully comprehend the material. She made learning French not only simple and straight-forward, but even fun. I would most definitely recommend her to anybody interested in learning the language!

"Kids loved their first lesson, I'm sure they will get into the grove"
SHUAI
"Excellent teacher! Zach is wonderful. He is very knowledgable, patient and intelligent. I just moved from China to America, so my English is not so good.
However, Zach is so kind and patient to encourage me to study French. I really enjoyed my first French lesson with Zach! And I am looking forward to continuing my lessons."

"I highly recommend anyone who is either a beginner, or any level of French to use Tania as a tutor. I started to learn French at a very basic level and cu
rrently I feel very comfortable with the basics of the language. What I like the most about my lessons with Tania is that French is used throughout the duration of the lesson, which really helps one to be submerged into the language."
