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

Bojour, mes amis!!!

I've been studying French for 10 years and would love to be there to help you get started on your adventure with the French Language.

I teach French grammar, vocabulary, speaking, writing and culture for beginners only. I use practical tools such as natives audio files, tutoring contents, news, articles, videos…. For those who wish to have more structure, I've also developed an interactive course.

I always personalize my sessions to your needs, expectations, and hobbies. I am here to help you to reach your goals, to pass your exams or to solidify your knowledge for a personal or professional goal.

I like to make my session fun, interactive and efficient !

A bientôt

About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

Do you have a question that you're afraid to ask your teacher? Want to understand exactly why Duolingo said your answer was wrong? Ask me! I studied French at a college level for two and a half years and have ben speaking ever since- if I don't know the answer, I know where to go to find the answer. I will tailor the lessons to your needs so you truly have a great foundation for your French-learning journey. Allons-y!

About Robin
I’ve studied French on and off since I was 8 years old, continuing throughout high school and completing the major requirements for an associates degree in French, plus an extra semester. I also taught sixth and seventh graders an Intro to French class, where the goal was to make learning a new language fun. I am prepared to meet you at your level, and help you reach your goals. The lessons will be mostly in French, so you can get as much immersion as possible. Cultural experiences will also be a part of the lesson, including food, music, and history. I want to know what your objective is, so I can create a lesson plan tailored to your needs.

My musical career began when I was nine years old playing the flute and violin. I started singing in choir at 11 and started theatre at 13. I studied acting at the Actor Training Program, a subset
of Solano Community College. I’ve also performed in professional shows around the Bay Area, with companies such as Contra Costa Civic Theatre, Missouri Street Theatre, and Lamplighters Music Theatre. I recently graduated from Circle in the Square Theatre School with a diploma in Musical Theatre. I’m now based in Brooklyn, ready to work with anyone within the five boroughs!

I started cooking when I was nine years old. My mother was in the hospital for nine days, and I was left to my father’s care. He’s a great father, but an absent-minded man who only ate once a day, so I lived off of what I could make for myself-cereal and soy sauce top ramen. I vowed to never be dependent on someone else to cook for me, and I want to give that same independence to you! I’ll teach you how to make simple flavorful dishes on a budget, so that you can be in control of what you eat (and hopefully we wont make too big a mess in the process).

I was born and raised in the Loire Valley of France (the "Valley of the Kings"), where the purest form of French is spoken. Contrary to what you may have been told by other teachers, the accent learned in Paris is harsh and jarring to most people, much like the New York City accent sounds rough to most Americans. But, having also lived in Paris for 22 years, I can teach that accent, too, if that is what you prefer.

In my numerous years of teaching French I have brought many students to complete fluency using the unique, proprietary teaching method I developed.

I teach a full range of students: from complete beginners, to people preparing for travel, to university professors needing assistance in book translations.

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled. I also touch on the etymology of words and how English and French are frequently interrelated. This is a great way for ...

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled.

Throughout my teaching career I have taught more than 500 students in France, the UK, and the USA. I have lived in Florida for the past 10 years.

I am an avid writer, enjoying the metaphorical nature of French, and I have an extensive background in French literature.

years, I can teach that accent, too, if that is what you prefer.

In my numerous years of teaching French I have brought many students to complete fluency using the unique, proprietary teaching method I developed. All along your learning process I will give you key points to focus on that, when implemented, I guarantee will bring you to fluency.

I teach a full range of students: from complete beginners, to people preparing for travel, to American high school French teachers wanting to enhance their understanding of the language, to university professors needing assistance in book translations.

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled.

My ultimate reward will be seeing you progress in your understanding of French and your confidence in speaking it. Let's begin your journey now!

I am an experienced, certified teacher with 2 years of formal classroom teaching experience at the university level and 9 years of one-on-one teaching and tutoring experience. I welcome all ages and levels and have experience teaching ages Kindergarten through older adults. As a teacher, I believe that learning a new language is a truly personal and transformative experience and as such I work with each student to create their own personalized long-term and short-term lesson plans to reach their goals.

About Julia
I am working on a Master's degree graduate French with an emphasis on second-language education. I am also a certified teacher in the state of Arizona and teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced French at the university level. Additionally, I have experience teaching children (Kindergarten through high-school) and adults. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and ability levels and take pride in helping them experience the joy of learning, or perfecting, French.

As a teacher, I believe that language learning should be a fun, exciting, and personal experience and work to tap into each student's individual motivations and strengths to help them reach their goals. As such, I work with each student to create individualized lesson plans as they embark on their language learning journey. I, myself, learned French through a combination of l
essons, classroom teaching, and several visits to Paris and the south of France and aim to cultivate the same joy and wonder in my students that I vividly remember experiencing when I had my first successful conversation in French.

I have a personal passion for language learning and speak fluent French and English as well as intermediate-level Spanish and beginning Arabic. As such, I find it incredibly rewarding to work with students with a variety of interests and at all levels. (I am currently working in France for the summer, so my availability is completely online and in the morning hours US time due to the time change. I will have a wider variety of hours available upon my return to the US in August).

Phillippe was a wonderful, patient instructor who clearly cares about his students and is dedicated to their learning. He found ways to make learning fun, recommending books articles, websites, tv shows, and movies that would help me learn but also that he knew I would find interesting. Phillippe was flexible and responsive if something wasn’t working and willing to try lots of different techniques to make concepts stick. On top of being naturally capable, Phillippe was just a lovely person to chat and practice speaking with; his interest in the world around him ensured our conversations and classes were never dull. I achieved my language goals after a few months of study with him, and he made the process a pleasure. I would highly recommend him to anyone, and consider myself lucky to have had him as a teacher.

About Bobbie M.

Close

Experienced professional teacher, specializing in beginner and intermediate students. I have worked primarily with teens and adults, but welcome all ages to join me in their learning adventure. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Language and Literature and a Master of Arts in Teaching.

One of the most important things about learning is knowing what your goals are, and I'm happy to help guide you to the proficiency you desire! My methods steer more towards comprehensible input, an approach that allows us to dive right into French, no matter the topic. If you've tried to learn before and are expecting verb conjugation charts, you won't find too much of that here. Let's get to know one another, tell stories, and fill our tool kit with essential skills and fun vocabulary we want to use. This approach doesn't mean we won't ever discuss grammar or usage -- those things are important too! But you will learn them in context, embedded in our lessons, activities, and discussions.

...

About Bobbie
I'm a lover of languages and learning. To me, speaking another language is like unlocking a secret to another world and I love sharing that feeling with others. I first started learning French in 1993. My 7th grade best friend and I thought it would be very cool to learn French, as everyone else was studying Spanish. We had those adolescent daydreams of speaking a "secret" language to one another as we walked down the hall. We didn't quite get there in 7th grade, but French absolutely grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Even after our family moved to a small town that didn't offer French, I still studied on my own until I eventually went to college. The rest is history!

My friends describe me as casual, friendly, helpful, and understanding. My goal is to help you reach your goals, whether that means casual phrases for vacation time or buildi
ng to full fluency. To do this, I listen to the things you want to learn instead of telling you what you must learn. As a certified public school teacher, I know how to structure our conversations to get where you want to go.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Langauge and Literature, and a Master of Arts in Teaching. I have been tutoring and teaching in public high schools since 2014 and am excited to start an online endeavor with you!
