Bonjour a tous!

Dear French Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows everyone to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons always begin with a dialogue, no matter your level. From how you are feeling, to what you did during the week, to the weather of your best friend's gossip, we warm up with a conversation I type out as we go.

The rest of the lesson is then spent reviewing previous work and introducing new material in a variety of ways, constantly setting a rule in practice. Poems, songs or texts, depending on your interest, keep the content alive and interesting.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

I was born in France from a French family, grew up in France. My whole family is still there. That's as authentic as it gets! I have been in the states for 25 yrs and have tutored all age groups and all different levels on and off since I have been in the States. I taught individuals, groups, classrooms. My goal is my students goal, and we have ALWAYS accomplished our goals!! We have fun through the process, because mastering a subject should always be a great experience.

Indulge yourself by learning languages. It opens your prospect to a new different world with a different culture, you feel like you gain a new person and a new experience while networking with new people around you. I personally admire languages and would like to share this passion with you. I invite you to start expanding your horizon by choosing a new language.
I have extensive background in French and I enjoy teaching in a dynamic Fun Immersion method.
Je suis prête à vous aider. Bonne chance :)

Starting out as a complete beginner in French, Marie took the time to make sure the pace and style of tutoring was right for me. Now, I'm grasping the language quicker than I ever thought I would. Marie makes our lessons very comprehensive and fun, I would highly recommend her!!

With pleasure I recommend Ms Marie (as the children knew and loved her for the past two years) for her devoted work at Wee Care preschool. She was very supportive and she assisted me with instructional responsibilities during the last year. She has compassionate attitude to the kids and strong understanding of child development plus to her excellent communication skills.

I individualize lessons and courses to meet the individual students' needs and goals. I have some authentic documents and memorabilia from when I lived in France

About Jodie
My name is Jodie. I have been teaching since 1999 and my experience includes school classrooms, university, and private lessons. I have been teaching private lessons since 2003 and am currently available to teach lessons in person and online. I teach French and ESL. I am also qualified to teach English, writing, and comprehension as well as a few crafts. One of my current students was failing his French I class at high school three months ago when his mom contacted me, but he has now raised that grade to a B.

I received my training at the University of Northern Iowa in1998 where I received a BA and an MA in French. I later studied at the University of Angers, France, where I earned an MA in Teaching French as a Foreign Language. I lived in France for six years. I also taught English to French students. As an expert in my field, I
look forward to helping new students achieve their goals. I personalize lessons and courses to meet the individual student's needs.

M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication.

About Emily
My passion for languages started at a young age. I continued to nurture this interested and ended up with a Bachelor's degree in French and Italian. All the while, I was working in restaurants. My passion for food and wine took me to France, where I lived and worked in the wine industry.

When I am at home in the States, I work in restaurants. My most recent job was a General Manager position in which I also directed the wine program.

When I'm not at home, I spend most of my free time traveling. Which leads me to this site. I want to maintain a part time tutoring position while I explore and taste my way through Europe.
