I am originally from France. I really enjoy teaching French because kids challenge all the time, in a nice way. You've got to explain things all the time and that gives me a fresh perspective on things and keeps me questioning things myself. I enjoy taking my time to teach and improve the kids to learn the language while at the same time being very patient to explain deeply the material. It has been 3 years now that I teach french. I make sure that my students are comfortable and productive with the work we put on. I am also very fun and open to help them to speak up when they have difficulties with the pronunciation. Come learn french with me we will make the lessons fun and very productive :).

About Leila
I am very fun and open to help my future students to speak when they have difficulties with the pronunciation. When I teach, I give all my best to make sure my students understand the material and improve themselves during the lessons. I am VERY PATIENT when it comes to explaining things and to build prior knowledge. I speak clearly in ways that make the lesson clear. I am also really organized, can break things down and clarify the objectives. I never try to trick my students and my goal is that everyone experience success. It includes me also, I succeed when my students do :).

I can especially help students who are already studying French, but need additional assistance in mastering the grammar, pronunciation, and usage of the language.

About Julie
I am a professional musician, specializing in traditional American and Irish music and song; I can, however, also teach classical guitar and beginning-intermediate violin. My CD, "American Stranger," has received critical acclaim and I have authored two books on DADGAD guitar for Mel Bay Publications.

I taught myself guitar at the age of thirteen, but took three years of lessons at Washington University, where I also studied English and French. As an adult I became interested in fingerstyle guitar in open tunings, especially DADGAD. I am, however, happy to teach in standard tuning--including basic guitar proficiency, classical guitar, and "folk" guitar.

I have played violin since I was eleven, taking lessons until the age of sixteen and playing in both high school orchestra and the local youth symphony. I later learned to sus
pend much of my classical technique in order to play both old-time and traditional Irish fiddle as authentically as possible; but I still retain my initial training and apply good basic violin technique to my fiddle and (of course) her violin teaching, while tailoring it to the musical idioms of each of students.

I have also studied voice, which again, however, I have never allowed to interfere with my performance of traditional songs--largely because I had developed a traditional approach to the singing of both American southern mountain repertory and traditional Irish song many years before receiving any formal instruction. This training, however, has given me greater insight into how to get the most out of your voice for almost any style.

I also taught myself to play lap dulcimer, basing my approach on the Eastern Kentucky styles associated with Jean Ritchie, Barbara Edwards, and Anne MacFie—that is, primarily using a small dowel stick or noter to sound the melody, and playing counter-melodies for song accompaniments.

My clawhammer banjo-playing is influenced by various Appalachian instrumentalists and accompanists (including Dock Boggs, Clarence Ashley, Hobart Smith, and Lily May Ledford), but my style is also influenced by years of playing with midwestern and southern-style fiddlers.

I welcome students ages 10 or above, and have learned to adapt my teaching style to the individual student, helping each one to make the most of his or her talents and enthusiasms, while emphasizing sound technique and good practice habits.

I loved working with Julie. She considered what my goals were for playing and the playing style I was interested in. She then guided my lesson practice toward those goals, while at the same time making sure I was getting the underlying foundational principles to build upon. I'm off to a good strong start and I'm certain I will continue to build my skills and enjoy playing music for many years.

As I was born and raised in Geneva, the French-speaking part of Switzerland, French is my mother tongue. With a Swiss degree of pediatric nursing and teaching, I worked more than 15 years with children, families and adult students. Finding the best way to learn depending on who you are and what goals you have is one of my specialties. I like to provide a dynamic and a fun learning environment.
Having learnt as multiple second languages, such as English, Italian, Spanish and German, I’m very aware of the process of learning a new language.
I can provide vocabulary, grammar, verbs, conversation as well as cultural aspects from different French speaking countries, as I was working with people from France and I spent 3 years in Montreal, Quebec.
I moved to Richmond a year ago, bringing many French books and movies for all ages, which we could use during lessons.

About Evelyne
I’m 44 years old. I moved from Geneva, Switzerland a year ago for my husband’s work. He’s a pediatric clinical and research physician at VCU (MCV). I’m the mother of two teenagers at the Steward's School. We are a native French speaking family.
I have worked since 1999 as a pediatric nurse and a nursing instructor for critical care children and neonates.
I have Swiss degrees in nursing, paediatric, critical care, lactation consultant and pedagogy/teaching.
I would love to tutor to share my knowledge of French language and culture, using my pedagogical background and a good sense of humour.

Evelyne volunteered at my daughter’s school while in Canada. She liked to be involved and useful in different school activities involving children of various age groups. She is very reliable and was always patient with the kids. Her love of children was clearly visible at all times. Perhaps more importantly, the children adored her too. Her intelligence, caring nature, sense of humour and her ability to adapt very quickly to the children’s needs makes it easy to highly recommend her for tutoring.

About Natacha B.

Close

I was born and raised in South of France and moved to Paris 10 years ago. I graduated from La Sorbonne in Art History, while teaching French for pupils, helping them to pass exams. I am from a teachers' family (my father, my mother and sister are teachers!) and I speak Italian (graduated in Italian language too) and obviously English! I am also a yoga teacher, a dancer, a world-traveler, a wine enthusiast and I love my native language, and I will make sure that my students will appreciate it too!

I like to accommodate the lessons to each of my students by picking a theme, according to their needs and center of interests. We will go through vocabulary, grammar and verbs through the picked theme. I like to pay attention to pronunciation too, as it is pretty tricky in French. I am flexible on what I teach and I can accommodate my lesson easily.

About Natacha
Hi everyone,

I am Natacha, a yoga teacher and a fitness enthusiast!

My style is more Vinyasa Flow, but I can easily teach restorative yoga or gentle to deep stretching yoga inspired sessions.

I used to be a ballet dancer in France and I like to describe myself as a movement lover! Drawing inspiration from my background in dance, I aim to provide you with inviting & inspiring practice, comforting hands-on adjustments, challenging exercises and a peaceful environment.

I had three classes in home with Natacha and she was amazing !
It was my first yoga experience so she took time to explain me everything in an understandable way, she was very patient and nice.
She helped me finding some balance and I know now, thanks to her, what I have to work on and what poses are good for me.
I can highly recommend her as a yoga teacher !
