Le français facile et rigolo c'est ici ! I was born in Paris' suburbs (Nogent-Sur-Marne). 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 (added to English, German, and Russian). I am a patient teacher for all levels, and all ages. Also people say I am super fun to work with. Feel welcome to ask for help either for personal or business purpose. 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!
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.

I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! 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 typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

About Helen
Hi, there! My name is Helen and I can't wait to meet you!

I went to National University of Donetsk (Ukraine) and earned a Master’s degree in French language and literature in 2010. I'm a patient and easy going person and my teaching methods always depend on student’s age and language needs. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

DON'T FORGET TO GO TO MY VIDEOS AND TAKE YOUR FIRST FRENCH TEST! BONNE CHANCE!

About Roman
*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. Learning a foreign language is a part of your SELF DEVELOPMENT. Treat it as such.
2. I don't believe in "good or bad with languages" stereotype. If you really want to speak a new language I guarantee that my method will work for you.
3. All materials are created by me and edited by a group of talented language teachers and linguists. They are free and very useful no matter where, when and how you study Russian or French.

*****My Students*****

For over 7 years of professional experience as Russian/French/ESL teacher, I have worked with all types of students with different learning styles and various goals: taught within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and i
mplemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high rank executives at multinational companies, employees of U.S. Embassy and Department of State.

Thanks to all my students, current and former, I am now confident that every individual, willing to learn one of the languages I teach, without a doubt, has everything it takes to succeed when the right approach is applied.

*****Program features*****

It is one on one program, thouroughtly personalized and organized according to your interests (general and professional), schedule, final goals, learning style and many other important elements to be taken into account.

Each session is 50 minutes.

Every session is prepared to reach a particular goal and structured in the way to have a maximum profit from "teacher - student" part of learning. Supporting materials are sent after each session: grammar notes, retention exercises, homework assignments, audio and video files as phonetic exercises and listening practice. The content of these materials is permanently tested and modified in order to achieve the best way to engage each individual student's language acquisition mechanisms.

Teacher's support 24/7.

Extra curricula content: idiomatic language components, cultural studies (traditions, history, literature, cinema and language related etymology), recommendations for independent language practice.

The way I see it, with each new student - there is a new process in my head that starts and constantly creates and improves techniques, ideas, method components, teaching style e.t.c for getting this particular student to do the best he or she can.

*****Recommendations*****

More recommendations can be provided upon request.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:
1) Teach you French from scratch,
2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or
3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!

***Important note***
I will have very little availability from May 9 to June 26, 2019 due to a job that will take me far from home.

---------------Frequently Asked Questions---------------

1- Are you interested in teaching total beginners?

2- What type of lessons would you recommend?

=> For beginner or intermediate level: 60 min lessons
=> For advanced level: 30 min, 45 min or more (100% conversation).
=> For kids: 45 to 60 min, depending how young and ...

About Meriem
I'm a native French speaker, but I do understand the joy & challenges of approaching a new language, as I also learned English, Italian and Tunisian (dialect of Arabic).

I moved from France to the USA in 2011 and my main job is being a costume designer specialized in opera. Through my work, I occasionally translate documents or help opera singers with their pronunciation & understanding of French lyrics.
I've also been teaching French privately and I would like to share my love for this language and culture with more students. Takelessons has been an amazing tool for this so far!

I'm looking forward to meeting you online or in my neighborhood (Andersonville in Chicago).

Merci et à bientôt!
