I have taken two years of college level French, as well as lived in Paris for a summer. I would be comfortable tutoring or teaching anyone who is in the first two years of learning the language.

Abigail loves her lessons; I suggested to her that she let you know she has a personal cordless microphone & amplifier. I thought the usage of microphone would be cool to use. Of course, this was only a suggestion, what do you think?

Shelby S.

Henderson, NV

I've been studying French for 7 years so far (high school through college), and I've almost completed my French degree at UNLV (University of Nevada, Las Vegas.) After studying abroad in France, almost all of my French credits were completed, save for a cultural class and some the general education classes required for all BA degrees.

I have several French textbooks, starting from beginning to advanced, and I use the website Conjuguemos to assist students with French verb conjugation. My students and I do plenty of activities out of my books, so there is no need to purchase any extra materials, although I do highly recommend my students have the Discovering French Workbook if they are not taking classes in Middle School/High School. However, I own this workbook as well so it is not a required material. I’m very closely focused in French grammar, as well as phonetics and conversation, and have materials for all these subjects.

Extremely helpful

My son has been working with Shelby for a few weeks now and I can already tell there is a difference. He was not thrilled when using an in home tutor but he really likes the online aspect. Shelby tutors him in English and French and I'm looking to see some great scores on homework and tests in the near future.

Kevin had been my teacher for piano and music composition until I left Memphis. As a person, Kevin is very kind. He has naturally gentle personality. As a music teacher, he is knowledgeable and patient, with great musicmanship and sincere love of music. He points out where I could do better, but never criticize. He helped me improving my piano playing to a higher level of techniques and musicality. I learned a whole lot from him also on music theory and composition. The lessons were both pleasurable and rewarding. I really miss the lessons with him and will highly recommend him to anyone.

Kortnee is a fabulous teacher! She came into our home and taught my 9 and 11-year old daughters piano once a week. Both girls thrived and looked forward to their lessons. The progress they made in one year with Kortnee was impressive. We have moved out of state and the biggest regret is that we can't find another piano teacher like Kortnee. We miss her and her enthusiasm for teaching music. Best instructor ever!

Kortnee is amazing!!

I actually take both piano and flute from Kortnee. Her energy is contagious and she knows many styles of music. She is always ready to support what I want/need to do and can give me a tip within minutes that will help me forever. I can puzzle over a phrase or mood, and she will immediately "get it". She loves to see me have fun, and loves to help me over the rough spots.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I never thought anyone and I mean anyone could get me past the fear of singing. I have over three decades of acting, including a prestigous acting school, but never developed confidence in singing. Thomas taught me. He helped me develop my new voice. Wow! Thank you sir!

Tom is a most excellent vocal instructor

Tom is a wonderful teacher. He is always cheerful and encouraging and positive. He searches for the best selections to match my voice. He helps me work toward the best I can be and doesn't let me "settle" for anything less. Best of all, he is so fun to be with.
