Private French Teacher

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

Aliaksandra has been excellent with our 8 year old daughter. I’m very happy we found her and that she is close enough to come to our house. Our daughter loves her lessons and is learning so much :)

My 8 year daughter is taking one-on-one French lessons with Ms Aliaksandra. She has taken 3 lessons so far and loving it. I was invited to observe her last lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher! We are glad to have found Ms Aliaksandra.

I've been teaching French for six years and my students have gone on to improve their grade substantially. Within the first few lessons, you'll get a better understanding of the material learned in class or if you are a new beginner, you will be able to read and speak basic French. I use different grammar and reading books depending on your level and make you practice with speaking and written exercises to vary the learning process. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I would be thrilled to meet you!

About The Method Acting Studio

Our Studio led by the Actor Sam Medina is providing acting lessons for films and TV. Script break down, audition room, character work. Get the benefits of private coaching and BOOK IT!

When not in front of the cameras, Actor Sam Medina also lends his talent as a director for Episodic Television Shows. This fall, Medina will make his Feature Film directorial debut in the upcoming action/thriller UNTITLED SAM MEDINA PROJECT in Europe and Morocco. It will begin production in late 2019 for a release of the following year. He will also co-star in the film. In other news, Medina once more joins the Robert Rodriguez family of actors, lending his talent to the character of Stinger - the ten-foot robot in the animated feature Alita: Battle Angel, written and produced by James Cameron. He's also featured opposite actor Tom Hardy in the new Marve

l adventure Venom, and, in one of his most important roles to date, he's the lead antagonist opposite Mark Wahlberg in director Peter Berg's action/thriller Mile 22. Medina plays a special operative for a third world government determined to stop a rogue agent from revealing potential terrorist targets to the U.S. intelligence community. Currently ubiquitous in the action arena, he also played a good cop in the most recent Jack Reacher film, which starred Tom Cruise. A product of Honduras, Vietnam, Polynesia, France, mixed with American Cherokee, Sam Medina was born in Saigon, Vietnam, where he spent the first twelve years of his life living under communist rule. Thanks to his mother's determination and resourcefulness, he was able to move to the United States, where he grew up in New Orleans. It was not an easy life for Sam. When he first arrived in the States, he spoke no English and he was a problem child. However, as he became more settled, he learned the language and excelled in school, later attending he University of New Orleans. When the disaster of Katrina struck the city, the only work available for him was in the construction industry. Medina helped rebuild the city, then began to look into the other industry that was soon thriving: film and television. He began to drive to auditions all over the country - putting 300,000 miles on his cars. His first break was booking two episodes of the Prison Break television series, shooting in Dallas. Early on, he was also able to book the key role of the main villain's brother in Olympus Has Fallen. He was the only member of the attacking force to sport a Fu Manchu. He also portrayed Crawford, a Thai mobster/killer in Kickboxer: Vengeance and Kickboxer: Retaliation. His character will also be featured in the third film in this action series. How tough does Medina appear on screen? He was cast as a character who could intimidate Danny Trejo in Machete Kills. It took three helicopters to take him down. Because of his resemblance to a young Trejo, Robert Rodriguez cast him as "Razor Charlie" in the From Dusk Till Dawn television series - the same character Trejo played in the original film. Medina models his career similarly to that of Sean Bean. They mostly die their whole career thus far. So now, when Sam takes meetings with Directors/Producers and Studios, His First question is " Does my character die?" "How does he die?" Medina's additional feature credits include: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Tracers, Savages, Dragon Eyes, The Baytown Outlaws, Let's Be Cops, Ant-Man, Our Brand Is Crisis, and Blood Out. His television credits include: Treme, Army Wives, Macgyver, NCIS: Los Angeles, Banshee, Let's Stay Together, Conan, The Messengers, Into the Badlands, Game of Silence, and he booked three episodes of Preacher, portraying the Samurai Guy. Between acting assignments, Medina can be found in his gym, where he works out with weights six days a week. He's also writing, studying cinematography and editing his latest short films.

OLIVER STONE, ROBERT RODRIGUEZ, ANTOINE FUQUA, MARTIN CAMPELL, EDWARD ZWICK-AND NOW- PETER BERG, SAM IS HONORED TO HAVE WORKED WITH THESE LEGENDARY DIRECTORS WITH SUPERB VISIONS FOR FILMOGRAPHY

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.

French Vocabulary Basics: Prefixes and Suffixes You Need to Know

By Megan L.

Have you noticed repeated beginnings or endings in French words? French tutor Tyler S. breaks down the most common French prefixes and suffixes you need to know... Why Prefixes and Suffixes? Have you ever wondered why languages have historically developed what grammarians call “prefixes” and “suffixes”? Why do almost all languages demonstrate these two types of word alteration when there are other ways to express the same changes of meaning? The answer is simple: prefixes and suf …
