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 the student to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons themselves are then spent reviewing previous work, as well as introducing new material in a variety of ways, all the while engaging in various forms of dialogues depending on your level.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

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

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

Learning a new language is something so exciting and opens so many new doors, especially in French. I'm a native speaker and I've spent lots of time in France and Belgium speaking French and I love helping students learn the language!

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

Learn French from an actual French native who also speaks fluent English. I always make sure to use efficient but fun learning methods and often select music, movies, tv series or newspapers for my exercices. I can teach you academic French and the literature classics or introduce you to conversational French with a dash of slang, as you wish.

Although I learned a little bit of the language by myself, I decided to try a tutor to help me improve my French and I'm glad I did! Sini really is an amazing tutor and I'm surprised at all the information I've learned after only three sessions! She's very sweet and patient (which is definitely important in a tutor) and she helps not only with speaking and pronouncing French correctly, but she also helps with the reading and writing aspects of the language. I absolutely recommend having her as a tutor!

Jordin is an amazing teacher. She makes learning enjoyable and works well with students ranging from school age to University students. She has a high command in French, but is also well versed in ESL and ACT/SAT prep courses. She is personable and friendly, but also maintains a high level of professionalism. Highly recommended!
