About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour!
I believe the best way to teach is to make it simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.
-------- QUALITY FIRST --------
Everybody wants the best. I believe quality is the most important. I also believe each person is unique, therefore each student should have tailored lessons.
-------- HAPPY TEACHING --------
Teaching should be a positive and fun experience. I believe in a personalized and genuine approach. In my experience the benefits are enormous: we save a lot of time, energy, and since it is way more suited to the student, we are more efficient = happy! Hopefully Wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

-------- PHOTOGRAPHY --------
Photography has been my full-time job since 2003. I am a 34-year-old French-American man living and working
in Minneapolis Minnesota. I have +16 years of expertise as a professional photographer. Recent clients include Porsche Minneapolis, Taste of the NFL, Medal of Honor Convention Twin Cities, and Women's Leadership Trust Forum. I will be your teacher today.

-------- WHY THE MOVE TO THE USA? --------
I am a husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 16 and 14. They all are musicians or artists.

-------- MY FRENCH HERITAGE --------
From 1995 to 2002 I primarily I studied French literature, English literature, and German, and even Russian for 3 years when I was in high school in France.

I was born in France so the language is my mother's tongue. My parents are Monique and Alain, typical French names. I have an older brother (Frédéric) and a younger sister (Johanna) who lives in Québec, Canada now. I do not practice German and Russian at the moment but I am a specialist of French language. If you want to test my French here I am!

-------- LE TEST FRANÇAIS: BIEN, OU QUOI ? --------
Comme on dit en français: "quand on me cherche on me trouve !" Le français, on l'appelle aussi la langue de Molière par opposition à l'anglais qui est la langue de Shakespeare.
Le français c'est facile car il suffit de pratiquer souvent avec un bon prof' qui sait ce qu'il fait. Et voilà les amis c'est comme ça qu'on doit bien faire les choses en bonne et due forme ! Y'a pas d'secret vous pigez le truc on quoi? Si tu es d'accord dis-moi oui oui hoche de la tête mon ami ! Alors, tranquille le chat? T'inquiète biquette ? Ça roule ma poule ?

-------- MY PASSION FOR SOCIAL WORK --------
In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of nonprofit organization Association Sunyoga France, French branch of the main NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTRE, for scientific and spiritual research, agriculture, clothing, taking care of orphans and elderly people, with a health center and an education center.

Our 7 humanitarian programs focus on creating a Self-Dependent and Sustainable Global Family Home University. As we speak, we have people from +14 countries working together towards that goal.

I know the organization well since I have been working with them since 2012 in France, India, Serbia, and now in the USA!
I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It is called Universal Peace Centre • SUNYOGA AMERICA.

-------- GLORIOUS CONCLUSION ABOUT TEACHING --------
Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you for your trust and friendship.

Wishing us all best success, peaceful, blissful, healthy, and enlightened life.
Merci! Gratitude.

About Kerstin
I graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in June 2007 with a Master in Education (Arts in Education) degree. During my studies I worked in the framework of the Artful Adventures Program (Museum of Fine Arts in Boston), which provides object - based learning and hands on artistic experiences for elementary and middle school kids. My own research was about “Creative Insight in Practice" and "Acquiring English as a Second Language and Developing Self-Esteem through the Idiom of Art". I have more than a two decades-long experience in painting, drawing, printmaking and installation work.The images I use in my work are mostly based on self-made or collected photos or drawings from nature combined with literature or self-made phrases. I use digital tools in order to layer text, photos and drawings and combine them to a new work.
Photo and text based collages will often merge into drawings or watercolors and these are the starting point for my large scale oil paintings.

She was absolutely patient and was able to work with and engage my son who has a learning disability. She did a great job making him feel comfortable and after only one session I could see his confidence go up as he continued to draw into the evening. She really enjoys what she does and it shows in the way she worked with my son.

About Kenji Luis
I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

About Simona
Practice makes perfect! My teaching style is based on language living rather than language studying, and while I will provide you with all of the tools to apply the correct grammar rules I encourage you to make mistakes, and learn naturally by being exposed to the language. I am 100% Italian native speaker, and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the Italian language and culture with you .

I enjoy working with Simona. She’s truly dedicated to helping her students achieve their goals. She stresses the basics before moving on to developing a strong vocabulary and structuring sentences. Simona is very personable and likes getting to know you, using this as a good learning tool. Five Stars!

Hello ~ This is Jiny! I was born and raised in South Korea and am now teaching the world about my native language and culture.

I am a CKLT-certified Korean language teacher from Incheon (like the airport), and I've been teaching university classes (at Hebei Geological University in Shijiazhuang, China, & Instituto Superior de Educación, or ISE, in Asunción, Paraguay) and private classes for over two years. I have taught all levels, from the basics of the alphabet to advanced speaking and grammar.

I studied in the USA as a foreign exchage student during college and have lectured about my experiences. I write a successful blog discussing education methods and am concluding my project to review 120 books in one year. My blog is in Korean, but you can see some pictures of me in the classroom and my teaching metarials.

I am an awar

About Gabriela
So, you want to become bilingual and don't know where to start?

Learn Spanish on-line with a native speaker tutor over Skype, Hangouts or Zoom. I have been teaching Spanish, my native language, for the past 11 years.

We will review all topics related to the Spanish language: vocabulary, verbs, tenses, grammar, pronunciation tricks, cultural aspects of Spanish, and more.

I am originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I moved to Mexico to get my Bachelor’s degree and then to US to earn my Master’s degree.

My passion has always been learning new cultures to expand my knowledge. I currently live in South Florida, where I found the richness of cultures and the need of learning other languages, and that led me to teach my passion – Spanish.

The method I provide is customized and catered to the needs/goals of each of my students.
The lessons include:
-Online materials.
-Additional materials (grammar resources).
-Additional reading materials.
-Homework: grammar exercises, listening, writing.

It will be an honor to meet you to enjoy the on-line learning experience together.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Gaby

About Kathleen
I've played piano and violin for the Russian Seasons in MN, a Russian music festival for almost 10 years and with various bands that have performed in the twin cities. I have played piano and violin since I was 9, trained in classical music playing with the Phipps Youth Symphony as a teenager and in the University of Eau Claire orchestra throughout college.
Throughout the past 15 years I have learned techniques outside of classical such as : Irish fiddle, Gypsy, folk/country and bluegrass. I can teach suzuki or a more relaxed approach using the John Thompson books. Children will learn to play by ear, read notes using fun games and will learn to sing while they play, something many children and adults learn to enjoy.
In addition to music, I've been a French teacher/ French tutor for 15 years, for all ages, all grade levels. I love le
arning new things and enjoy the learning process and believe that learning new skills is good for the mind and heart.
