About Kevin F.

Close
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.

Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.

About Brandon G.

How do you sink a French battleship? You put it in water.

About Brandon
Ever since I started my studies in the United States, 5 years ago, I have been captivated by the educational system. Initially, I tutored high school students as a tool to better practice my communication skills with the English language. I continued this tutoring path by aiding other college students on a 1-to-1 basis and more recently as part of an online experience at Slader.com. I wish to continue this path until I finally graduate in order to apply as a Graduate Student Instructor at my school of choice. Math is my biggest passion, ever since I discovered its full depth. While many ask themselves "how will this equation be useful in my life?" I always ask myself "how can I make this equation meaningful in my life." I am a mathematics major and have enjoyed every single math class I have ever taken.

About Sini L.

Close

Learn French from an actual French native who also speaks fluent English. I always make sure to use efficient but fun learning methods and often select music, movies, tv series or newspapers for my exercices. I can teach you academic French and the literature classics or introduce you to conversational French with a dash of slang, as you wish.

About Sini
Born and raised in France, I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in French Literature and my Master's degree in Library sciences / Education. I then worked as a certified teacher-librarian in middle schools as well as in high schools. I spent the last four years in the US pursuing my passion for teaching through private online tutoring. I have many students of all ages and levels learning French with me currently and I hope you are the next one :)

Do you want to learn a new skill and challenge yourself? Are you planning a trip to France and want to learn conversational French to use along the way? Or maybe you're planning on moving there for business or university?
Whatever your reason or your level, I will provide a personalized lesson plan along with the lessons and exercises I write myself to better fit your specific needs. During
the lessons, I like to use Google documents which allows us to write on a document at the same time while video-chatting. Taking advantage of the online format of our lessons, I like to use videos, songs, newspaper articles and even comic strips to make our classes more effective and fun.

I am also the author of ebooks in Easy French available on Amazon and the administrator of a French study group on Facebook. Don't hesitate to contact me for more details!

See you in class soon :)

I have studied and worked in different cities in France for several years. As a professional translator, interpreter, and amateur de la littérature philosophique française, I have a lot to offer students of all levels. I'm also in tune with the popular culture and can introduce you to the wonderful world of French-speaking pop, rock and ballads from musicians of France, Africa, and Quebec.

About Jean-Paul
Home-grown Mercedian back after many adventures! I'm eager to share my knowledge of Russian, French and the world around.

I began my career as a linguist in Russia, learning the language intensively on the street and in the classroom, while also teaching English to businessmen. Through connections, I was able to dabble in legal and academic translation.

I continued my education in France, mastering the language while also getting to sing in classical choirs and play oboe in wind ensembles.

I have most recently completed a teachers' exchange program with the French Ministry of Education. I taught 5th thru 12th grade in two schools in beautiful Lyon, France. I gave evening lessons to engineers and logistics specialists wishing to improve their English. Adapting to different teaching styles needed for each age group was challenging challe
nging but I have always enjoyed working with such diverse groups of students.

The many challenges I have faced have molded me into a resilient teacher. I plan lessons carefully but am quick to adapt to students' needs. I will be glad to help you meet your goals with your language-learning.

French vowel sounds got you feeling tongue-tied? Tutor Tyler S. shares his best tips to proper French pronunciation... Everyone faces their own personal challenges when learning a foreign language, and I remember that mastering the French vowel system was a great challenge for me.
