About Kevin F.

Memphis, TN

View Full Profile

I studied French in high school and college and spent a month in Marseilles. I am perfectly capable of helping you learn the basics of the language, how to pronounce words correctly and conjugate basic verbs and such.

About Kevin
I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b
ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

I waited after a few lessons to give feedback. Very pleased. Kevin is full of knowledge -both relevant to music and other random fun facts! He is patient and will move at whatever pace you prefer. I look forward to continuing to improve my skills under his direction.

About Glenda
After studying at Cass Tech High School and Wayne State University in MI, I have enjoyed teaching privately, in groups, and at churches, I have performed vocally and instrumentally throughout the US and in 8 foreign countries, and taught at public, charter, and private schools. It is important to tailor each lesson to a student's individual needs and ability to ensure that their experience is as rewarding as possible!

*** Lesson Details ***
You will learn to play with ease and proficiency while learning the Music Theory that supports your playing. You will also receive ear training, which will make learning more rapid, and more thorough.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with pianos; parents can sit in on lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When needed, I provide printed learning supplements or in e-mail. The student should hav
e his/her own instrument, so they can practice regularly.

*** Specialties ***
Gospel, Classical, Pop, Inspirational, Sacred, Wedding, etcetera

VERY helpful first lesson. Almost immediately, Glenda was able to listen to my playing and make useful suggestions for improvement. It was a very good lesson. I look forward to learning even more under her skillful tutelage. A GREAT choice for anyone looking to master the Hammond organ.

About Erika I.

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

I am someone with a lot of patience as I understand the difficulty it takes to learn a new language. I try to incorporate a lot of music, games and other fun tactics to make the learning experience a more pleasant one. I have been told that my voice is very clear, kinda slow but most importantly very easy to understand.

About Manace
Hi,
My name is Manace Balegamre. I am originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo but I moved to the United States at a young age. French is the national language in my home country so I was taught at a young age and continued to take classes throughout my educational career here in the United States in order to master the language. I am currently enrolled at Young Harris College where I give many French lessons and tutor but I am looking forward to teaching this beautiful language to a broader scale of people !

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 !

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 ...

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.

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.
