I was born in Paris' suburbs. 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. I am a patient teacher for all levels, and all ages. Feel welcome to ask for help either for personal or business purposes. 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!

The way I teach is simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.

My name is Jonathan. I am a 33 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 15 and 13 (11th, and 8th grade this year).

I have been a professional photographer for more than 14 years now. It is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan SunYoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases in 4 different countries (USA, France, Serbia, India).

In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of a Non Profit Organization called SUNYOGA France, French branch of the main
NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTER, for yoga, research, education, and humanitarian programs. I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It will be called SUNYOGA AMERICA.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. I also believe each person is UNIQUE and should be treated in a unique way with unique lessons.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent, passion, and love for his work, the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

As a photographer my motto is
ENLIGHTEN YOUR EVENT, BRING LIFE TO YOUR STORY

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.

Alex was so patient especially because we had some technical difficulties. He didn't have to give us the extra time but he did: appreciate that very much. My son loves him and can't wait until his next lesson. He is very knowledgeable in his field and in a short time my son learned quite a bit. A+!

During my student teaching experience, I developed and initiated a curriculum sequence on French reading and comprehension.
This collaborative unit involved working with the other teachers within my team.
In my work with the classes, I stressed critical thinking and the incorporation of
culture and science units into the course. The student response was very encouraging, as we had a 100% passing rate for this section. In addition, our team met state curricula guidelines and received numerous positive comments from students’ families regarding the class material.

About Elena
My name is Elena. I am very pleased to welcome you to my French lessons! I have been teaching French for all age groups (beginning from 3 years old kids to the adult advanced level) for more than 20 years and I am really happy to provide my students with the experience and skills I have acquired for all the years.
I have worked with the kids of all the age groups creating cooperative learning, hands-on and minds-on approach. I also participated in "Write-to-Read" program in California and used these methods to encourage reading/writing at home, parent involvement, and listening/speaking/writing skills. I always try to create an individual approach to every child to develop his/her unique language skills and personal perception.
I am a professionally credentialed and certified teacher from California state and I am happy to share my exp
erience and my love for French with all students and their families.

Sincerely,

Elena

I am a French native speaker from Paris with a Master's degree in Intercultural studies and Applied Foreign Languages.
According to your level and the purpose of your study (school, business, travel, etc.), I will customize a program targeting your needs. So no matter what type of learner you are, in my classes, you will feel at ease. I use grammar books, but also songs, poems, short stories and art to create a real interaction and engagement so that you can improve quickly.

About Marion
I was born and raised in Paris, close to Montmartre. After my Master's degree, I started tutoring French as a second language to American students in exchange programs in Paris. I loved it so much that I basically never stopped.

French is a demanding but extremely rewarding language to learn. In my classes, they are no stupid questions, and no mistakes. Learning a language is a very humbling process that needs to happen in a safe and joyful environment. This is what you will find in my classes.

A bientôt!
