What most schools skip over is the ability to speak foreign language, an opportunity that often doesn't come until you live in another country. Instead of trying out route conversational patterns, I start with what makes people smile. My goal is to find out my students' interests and talk about them together, developing vocabulary, confidence, and the ability to explain ourselves even when we don't have the exact words. We can also study for exams, read french novels, and learn correct grammar.

About Walker
Working with teens and adults, I'm learning that language is about connection. What do you connect to in this culture, in these sounds, this perspective? Language expands our power to connect with the world. Sometimes that means enjoying foreign cartoons, at other times making conversation in another country, maybe even reading and writing tweets across the globe. Whatever your motivation may be, I am here to encourage and guide your growth and goals. I've studied and lived in both France and Japan, and built relationships with acquaintances and long term friends alike through these languages. Tutoring I began first with fellow students at DePaul in 2012, facilitating round table discussion with exchange students, and working as an English conversation partner. Since then I've been leading group classes with homeschool students in a Chica
go Co-Op, as well as with private clients in person and online. There is great wonder in language and crossing into new territory; this drives me to share what I have learned with all the people who want to learn too. Focus and determination, along with the right resources and support, can bring you towards your goals. I am here to help.

Thank you very much for helping me, You are one of the best tutor which I had during my study at ELA(DePaul Language Academy). Walker has a great personality and patient for teaching his students the best language skills. Walker`s subjects is not only enhances the language skills, but also the way how a student has to interact with environment which he lives in. He uses different teaching approaches such as games, sports conversation , and deep cultural conversation to make a student gain enough self-confidence to use the language properly. Besides that, his correct use of language skills enhances the students capability for taking more space, and feel more comfortable using the language. Thank you for teaching me English, thank you for making me feel comfortable while I am talking mine 6th language. The most important part of his tutoring sections is the way who he provides the information about the cultural environment, so to help the students to be solid against any culture shock waves. Thank you again for being such a great tutor. Thank you for encouragements, They helped me to feel more confidence while I am using the language for my academic purpose and among my friends.

Walker is an awesome instructor. He's funny and warm and practicing conversation is always something I looked forward to! He's hands-down my favourite tutor I've ever had. As Japanese is such a complicated language, that's saying a lot. I had tons of problems with grammatical rules and Walker really made me feel at ease with his easy to understand explanations. I learned more Japanese in our weekly conversation sessions than I did in a year of my college classes. ウォーカー先生、ありがとうございます!^ - ^

"Bonjour" and "Bievenue" to French tutoring! As an international singer, I can teach you the ins and outs of French so that you sound like a local, and can keep up in class or when you study abroad. We'll work on grammar, making up your own sentences, practicing conversations, and improving your pronunciation so you sound like a true francophone.

About Nicole
Nicole is available to teach lessons for students of all levels. Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles. She practices what she preaches: one night she might be singing Beyoncé, and the next morning she might be singing Handel's Messiah!

Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),

Nicole is a very professional, dedicated and enthusiastic teacher. Not limited to Broadway singing, she's very knowledgeable about many different methods of singing and can teach various techniques based on how you want to showcase your voice. She's extremely caring and makes sure her students can take something from her lesson each time. Wish I could give her 10 stars!!!

As a native speaker with over 15 years of experience teaching French to students of all experience levels, my goal is to share with others my love for the beautiful language that is French! With my lessons, I strive to create personal and individualized courses, as opposed to many curricula which have rigid study schedules and unforgiving pace. These courses are fluid in nature and designed to fit student needs and schedules.

M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication.

About Meroe
Bonjour!
My name is Meroe. I grew up and was living and studding in Paris, I am an experienced and a passionate French Teacher.
To devote my life and my work for Teaching French, after a Bachelor’s in “French Translation and Interpretation” I did my Master Degree in “French Modern Literature” in the prestigious Sorbonne University. Then, I specialized in the field of Teaching French as a second language (FLE).

I am the Owner of "Mero French Academy" in Irvine and we serve hundreds of students in Orange County. "Mero French Academy" is a French Language Academy specialized in Teaching French to foreigners.
I offer Private, Group & Online French Classes.
To have more information about the courses please visit my Website at: mfracademy.com

I Teach French in one-on-one or group settings to all ages and levels. I have loved Teac
hing French since 1998 to people of all ages and levels and I have worked with hundreds of students in their pursuit of Learning French Language and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French Language.

I approach clients with empathy, encouragement and joy and will coach you to hit your goals. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I provide an in-depth learning experience filled with productive exercises, meaningful advice and plenty of direct support and encouragement. I know that French can be challenging at times. I have a lot of patience and always keep an encouraging attitude. I am confident in my ability to improve anybody's language skills.

I love working with students on their writing and preparing for standardized tests. I take time to evaluate my students individual learning styles and goals. I always make sure that my students feel completely comfortable with learning a new language. There is nothing more rewarding to me than when a student's hard work is rewarded with a huge improvement or when they get the A on that essay we spent days perfecting.

If you are in one of these situations, then I can help you:

-Are you struggling with your French at school or home schooling, do you need grammar support or help to memorize the vocabulary and improve your pronunciation?

-Are you planning to go on vacations to a French speaking country and want to be able to read a menu card, order a meal, ask for directions, do some shopping etc..

-Do you just want to have French conversation because you love the French language?

-Do you want to prepare for your French exam?

-Do you work for a French speaking company and want to be able to have a French conversation on the phone, write or understand short French emails?

Whatever you are starting French or you want to improve your languages skills, I can help you to enrich your French skills with a fun and a very diversified program in a natural way!

For Private Tutoring, we start by having an initial meeting for 30 minutes to discuss your goals and define your French level.
This session is FREE of charge. A lesson may be cancelled and rescheduled with 24-hour notice. I strongly believe that learning a new language is not only a skill but also an art which opens new doors to a new world to everybody.

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Add a little culture to your life today and learn French with Meroe!!

A bientot!
