I was born in Paris' suburbs. French is my mother's tongue but it is not enough to be a good teacher. I got a degree in French literature in 2002. I am a patient teacher for all levels, and all ages. Feel welcome to ask for help either for personal or business purposes. Le français est une langue qui a beaucoup de charme, le secret est juste de pratiquer ! C'est facile ! Commençons avec les basiques, puis étape par étape nous progresserons ensemble !

About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour!

The way I teach is simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.

My name is Jonathan. I am a 33 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 15 and 13 (11th, and 8th grade this year).

I have been a professional photographer for more than 14 years now. It is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan SunYoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases in 4 different countries (USA, France, Serbia, India).

In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of a Non Profit Organization called SUNYOGA France, French branch of the main
NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTER, for yoga, research, education, and humanitarian programs. I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It will be called SUNYOGA AMERICA.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. I also believe each person is UNIQUE and should be treated in a unique way with unique lessons.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent, passion, and love for his work, the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

As a photographer my motto is
ENLIGHTEN YOUR EVENT, BRING LIFE TO YOUR STORY

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.

About Paule
I adapt my teaching to the needs of each student. I taught children at 5 years old and
adults at 70 years old. It is not the same way of teaching, I help students to prepare
SAT 1 - 2 AP advanced etc..

I've been teaching French for 3 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Elsa
Hi, there! My name Elsa and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learning French and English. I went to Université of Avignon in France and earned a Master's degree in Teaching French as a Foreign or Second Language in 2016. I'm a dynamic and enthusiastic person and my teaching style is personalized to my students needs. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

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.

Bonjour !

Most people I met told me that French is a beautiful language but so hard to learn! My answer is always the same "No more than any other language. If you have fun while learning it, it will come easily"

And I really believe it. That is why I offer French lessons using games, music and videos to help my students learn quickly without getting bored.

Either for personal interest of for profesional reasons, I will help you mastering French in an enjoyable way.

About Yaelle
Bonjour !

I was born and raised in a small town in West of France where the speciality is... a handkerchief!

I have since lived in Belgium, Norway, Israel, Romania and now Texas following my husband who is a scientist. In every country, I taught French to several students and developped great tutoring skills from it.

Beside teaching and science, my passion in life is cooking! I will be more than happy to share French recipes with you so you can feel and taste some of the French culture.

Yaelle makes me feel really comfortable whenever we meet. At first, I was kind of embarrassed to try and speak in another language, but she was able to get me to do it. When she corrected me, she was really nice about it. I think I've made a lot of progress with her; she's a really good teacher!
