I will be focusing on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone, for example as some students struggle to learn English on their own with this methodology. I can recommend websites and books.

About Isabelle
I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (9-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment. In fact I have worked in-countries and remotely with people located in France, Poland, India, Canada, Guatemala and Brazil. I speak some Spanish and German, and that might help you as well, depending on your background. I am happy to add a cultural dimension to the language support. For Life Coaching lessons, I draw from my experience and best practices. I will share simple yet highly effective tips and approaches to help you meet your needs.

For best results; I recommend a minimum of 2 (two) 45-minute sessions per week. I look for students
sincerely interested in making great strides and committed.

Happy to start any time soon. THX for visiting my profile. Questions welcome!

Solange is amazing as an instructor. As a native speaker she understands text book French as well as slang. She provides several options for ways to express a thought. She is easy to talk to and time passes so quickly. Definitely the best French teach I have had and I have had many.

I knew a bit of french going in and needed to practice listening skills and conversation. It was a lot of work, I have far to go in being comfortably conversational, but this was the jumpstart I needed to know what I needed to do going forward. Thanks Daniel!

After my first lesson I already feel more confident that I will be able to communicate some in Italian while on vacation in Italy. Daniel is an excellent teacher who is very knowledgeable in many languages. He made me feel comfortable right away.
He has a plethora of experiences from living and working abroad. He brought simple techniques/strategies that helped me understand grammar and pronunciation.
I have homework, can't wait for my next lesson. Ciao

Bonjour! Je suis ici pour vous aider avec le français! I'm a professional opera singer who has studied french since middle school. I would love to help you learn French or improve upon what you've already learned. Whether you're planning a trip to France and would like to practice a bit before you leave, or you need help studying for your next exam, I can help you set and achieve your individual goals.

About Kelley
Whether you've never had a voice lesson in your life, are looking for fine tuning, or are just curious, I'd love to help you set and achieve your goals! I've studied classical voice for over 15 years, and started teaching about six years ago. I focus on breath control, relieving body tension and any hindrance to beautiful and free sound, diction, and interpretation. I speak French, some Italian, a little German, and can also help with Czech and Russian diction.

My goal for students is that they develop the healthy, efficient, and reliable ability to express themselves through music in a safe and fun environment. I've studied with some of the finest pedagogues in the world, and am comfortable teaching students at any stage in their musical development.

***Lesson Details***
For beginners, I like to focus on music fundamentals, inclu
ding theory and aural skills, and building a solid foundation of breath management. For more advanced students, the focus will be refinement and fine tuning--whether it be working on dramatic interpretation, freeing up the sound and any tension in the body, performance anxiety, or languages. We can work on operatic, song, musical theater, and jazz repertoire, languages and diction, dramatic interpretation, and performance skills.

I believe very strongly in singing repertoire appropriate for your age and level, and will not do anything to compromise your development.

Learning to sing requires a great deal of hard work and commitment. Each lesson, I will leave the student with specific exercises and pieces to practice before the next lesson. New exercises may pose challenges, but that's part of the process! If you are struggling with a particular assignment, please do not hesitate to communicate with me, and I will guide you through it, or find an alternative to help you achieve the same goal.

We are all different, and so have different learning styles. Singing lessons should be therapeutic, gratifying, and above all fun! I don't ever want singing to turn into a chore or something you don't enjoy. This should be fun!

***Travel Equipment***
Student should have either a piano or keyboard. A CD player, mirror, and yoga mat are a plus.

***Skype Equipment***
Computer with high-speed internet. I can supply electronic files for sheet music and accompanied tracks.

***More about me***
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Originally from Seal Beach, CA, soprano Kelley received her Master of Music from Rice University, where she studied with world-renowned voice teacher, Dr. Stephen King, and her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from The University of Michigan. She has appeared in full productions and scenes as Contessa Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro), Fiordiligi (Così fan tutte), Frau Fluth (Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor), Musetta/Mimì (La bohème), Corvina (Volpone), Hanna Glawari (The Merry Widow), Countess Madeleine (Capriccio), and Curley's Wife (Of Mice and Men). As a concert soloist, Kelley has sung Mozart's Requiem and Vespers, Rachmaninoff's Bells, Brahms' Liebeslieder Walzer, and Schumann's Spanisches Liederspiel. She regularly performs in cabaret shows with Lone Star Lyric Theater in Houston, TX, and started teaching privately in 2011.

Kelley is the best! She's very knowledgeable in technique, languages, and repertoire, but she also made it really fun for me. I always wanted to sing but was really nervous about it, so I'm so especially thankful for her warm and supportive personality and professionalism. Highly recommend!

· Vocal Training · In studio
Kelley is a qualified pedagogue who exhibits that all too rare balance of consummate professionalism with a friendly personal touch. She teaches a healthy vocal technique, based on current science and traditional methods, always keeping an eye on the artistic and expressive goal. While some teachers just work on your voice, Kelley also coaches the student as they work to integrate their ideas into a musical/dramatic presentation. Kelley has trained with some of the best teachers in the United States and has a wide knowledge of repertoire both in the classical and Broadway/cabaret genres. Her extensive language skills also make her a great resource for students studying the classical repertoire specifically. I do not recommend voice teachers unless I trust their knowledge and professional demeanor implicitly.

I'm currently an Assistant Professor of Voice working in a school of music at a famous university in a major US city. Over the years, I have sent a variety of my students to work with Kelley, from ages 14-60. Across the board, they all have had a rewarding and fun experience, making significant progress both technically and in their self-confidence. I wholeheartedly recommend Kelley to anyone looking for a voice teacher.

Native French speaker.
Intense reader and passionate by French literature as well by the language practice itself.
I am not here to judge you but to help you to achieve your goals, my sessions will always be built around your needs and not mines.
We'll take it slowly if you want me to but we can also go more intensively if that's how you want.
I will only recommend you how we should do it but you are the student and will end up being the one and only making the decisions about the way of learning that fits you the best, all based on my recommendations and observations that you are free to consider.

I am so far away from the arrogant attitude that makes some teachers feel they should be listened and followed since they master their own language.
Yeah I do master the French language and yeah I have always been on top of the French speakers who practice, teach and speak a proper French with the love for the language.

About Aissa
Bonjour and hi to my future students,
Native French speaker here and intense reader who is passionate by French literature as well by the language practice itself.

My name is Aissa, as my daily job, I am a pathologist here in the U.S. but I was Born and raised in Belgium and lived in Paris for 10 years.
French is my native language but not only I am passionate about it, I have been Lucky enough to share it with people who are really interested by the language.

I have been tutoring French for as long as I can remember (around the age of 16), and did so with my classmates who were struggling, to my nephews in France and England and to my friends here in the U.S. I have done it for free with people I know and just because of the passion to share the language but I have also done it as an official paid tutor.
I am very patient and t
ry to focus on my students needs without the arrogance of mastering my own language, which I shouldn’t get credit for anyway.

If I meet someone in the street in Paris who needs my help and try to do it in French, my philosophy is to always trying to adjust myself to understand different accents and not expect from them to be perfect speaker in a language that is not their native one.

I am not here to judge you but to help you to achieve your goals, my sessions will always be built around your needs and not mines.
We'll take it slowly if you want me to but we can also go more intensively if that's how you want. I will only recommend you how we should do it but you are the student and will end up being the one and only making the decisions about the way of learning that fits you the best, all based on my recommendations and observations that you are free to consider.

I am so far away from the arrogant attitude that makes some teachers feel they should be listened and followed since they master their own language. Yeah I do master the French language and yeah I have always been on top of the French speakers who practice, teach and speak a proper French with the love for the language.
But that being said, it doesn't give me the right to judge you or expect you to be at my level. I just love sharing my knowledge with my students in the way that can help them and make them gain in confidence.
