French is such a beautiful language! No wonder a lot of poets and composers were and still are inspired of the sound of it! Whether you want to get better grades in school or you just be able to have a simple conversation on vacation I'd love to introduce you to the most beautiful language in the world!

About Chrissy

Originally born in Germany, Chrissy developed a passion for music, language and teaching early on. Right out of High School she helped her mother, who was an educator at that time, write and stage-manage a children's Musical which found great response from the audience. During her Music studies in the Netherlands she was offered an internship at the local Music School which she gratefully accepted and where she enjoyed her first voice coaching experience. There she was also nominated as one of the most promising young singer/songwriters at the LUX Festival in Nijmegen. Over the years she was blessed with more and more private students in voice as well as piano. During her stay in New York she received the opportunity to work with a Broadway show ensemble ("Dreamgirls") as a Music Director on their different harmonic parts. She's proudly b

een a member of the Music of Oz Studio staff in Crown Point, Indiana since Jan. 2011 and is looking forward to teaching out of her home now as well. Chrissy is crazy about all her students and wants them to succeed! She's very much looking forward to working with you and having buckets of fun! :-)

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 like to start with teaching songs and reading books beginning with basic children’s’ books and continuing with more difficult reading material including newspapers and articles...
Je suis prête à vous aider et je vous encourage à commencer tout de suite :) Bonne chance

About Marie

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 came recently to U.S. and I was tutoring languages "Arabic, French and English" back in my country. I hope to build a good reputation here too with my students. I'm so patient toward kids, and I like to innovate methods to engage early learners (songs, stories, games...). My only goal is to reach your needs and desire to learn then proceed from there in a fun immersion method.

"I would highly recommend Zach! He is patient, supportive, and knowledgeable. He truly wants you to learn, while always keeping class fun. Zach will repeat
pronunciations as needed until you have complete understanding. Not only does he teach the French language, but also French culture. Zach is encouraging yet provides a challenge for you to reach your goals for learning. He's always organized, on time, and shows interest in your progress. I have been learning with Zach for months and will continue taking his classes."
