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!

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 !

About Amargeaux R.

Have you ever tried to learn French (or any language, for that matter), and the lessons would just never stick? How about you wanted to start learning, but it felt a little daunting because the book -- or teacher or whatever -- was using Jargon that you felt you needed a dictionary to understand?

I have been teaching and tutoring language for about nine years now, and I teach the same way I learned; conversationally, repetitively (to practice recall), only a few words at a time, and overall, NATURALLY.

I was exposed to multiple languages for the first seventeen years of my life before I decided to turn a thing I loved so much into a hobby. And out of all the books and lessons I've learned that they've missed one thing;
When it comes to language, no matter what age we start out, we start out as babies, so we need to learn from scratch!

All o' that, "subjugating the conjugal verb from the pre - and post - position according to the square root o' 34..." ugh. it hurts my heard just ...

About Amargeaux
Hello!

My name is Amargeaux, and I have been have been teaching and tutoring language for about nine years.

I was exposed to multiple languages for, like, the first seventeen years of my life before I ever wanted to make languages into a hobby. But when I did, I realized that people were making language learning harder than it actually was.

They were giving a bunch of jargon no one understood to teach something so simple, you know? You don't need crazy, brainiac, scientific words in order to learn just one new word!

When I teach people languages , I teach them the same way they learned English; in a normal conversation.

(I Promise I won't use baby talk with you,) But you DO start off as if you were a baby, because frankly, when it comes to a new language, you are. No offense.

I want to just talk with you. The best way to learn i
s to be as organic as possible, which is not hard. I love people, and I'm VERY patient.
We use conversation to be very repetitive (for the sake of practicing recall -- VERY important!!) And then we'll do the occasional drill just to make sure it's sticking (as if it isn't already.)
We will learn just a few words at a time, so you won't have to worry about feeling overwhelmed, and we'll keep switching back and forth Between English and your new language until you have enough in your vocabulary to speak only the new language.

You know you can do this, otherwise you wouldn't be looking for a teacher. I don't even know you yet, and I KNOW you're capable of everything you put your mind to.

Let me give you a chance to show you just how capable you are.

Looking forward to chatting with you. Lots of love!
