Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

Pasadena, CA

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational French practice (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

** Discounts will be made available for students wishing to take more than 1 Lesson per week. Please send me a message to make this arrangement.

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.

"Bonjour" and "Bievenue" to French tutoring! As an international singer, I can teach you the ins and outs of French so that you sound like a local, and can keep up in class or when you study abroad. We'll work on grammar, making up your own sentences, practicing conversations, and improving your pronunciation so you sound like a true francophone.

About Nicole
Nicole is available to teach lessons for students of all levels. Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles. She practices what she preaches: one night she might be singing Beyoncé, and the next morning she might be singing Handel's Messiah!

Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),
Michael Fennely (Carnegie Hall), Wei-En Hsu (Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra), and Candace Evans (Santa Fe Opera). Nicole earned her Associates in Theatre from Brigham Young University ('12) and went on to acquire her BM in Vocal Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University ('14). Nicole obtained additional training from Boston University, Elon University, and the University of Alaska Anchorage.

About Bruno
Hello!

I have been a French tutor online and in person for four years. I am originally from Paris and I now give private French lessons to students, professionals, and adults. I received my Master's degree in Economics from a University of Paris. I'm also fluent in Spanish, and I can teach in this language, as well.

I have taught over100 students in French and work with all of them to create a program tailored to their individual goals and needs.

I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary, test preparation and overall fluency and accent coaching.

When it comes to learning French, I believe that speaking experience is just as important as learning grammar and vocabulary.

I'm offering pleasant, affordable and efficient online lessons.
-----------------------
Why online class is a
good choice?:
1/ Maybe you don't have very many **affordable** native French tutors in your area or your schedule is tight, so online tutoring could be an option for you.
2/ Online class/conversation has the highest value for money ratio and is efficient!
3/ I offer a discount for online classes

I can help your child wit SAT French, AP French, Honor French et French Regents (in NYC).

I'm always very patient and very creative as I find the best and easiest way for you to learn my language. I have a lot of very good documents that are included in my lessons. They range from grammar books and exercises to pronunciation and oral production.

Do you have a question that you're afraid to ask your teacher? Want to understand exactly why Duolingo said your answer was wrong? Ask me! I studied French at a college level for two and a half years and have ben speaking ever since- if I don't know the answer, I know where to go to find the answer. I will tailor the lessons to your needs so you truly have a great foundation for your French-learning journey. Allons-y!

About Robin
I’ve studied French on and off since I was 8 years old, continuing throughout high school and completing the major requirements for an associates degree in French, plus an extra semester. I also taught sixth and seventh graders an Intro to French class, where the goal was to make learning a new language fun. I am prepared to meet you at your level, and help you reach your goals. The lessons will be mostly in French, so you can get as much immersion as possible. Cultural experiences will also be a part of the lesson, including food, music, and history. I want to know what your objective is, so I can create a lesson plan tailored to your needs.

My musical career began when I was nine years old playing the flute and violin. I started singing in choir at 11 and started theatre at 13. I studied acting at the Actor Training Program, a subset
of Solano Community College. I’ve also performed in professional shows around the Bay Area, with companies such as Contra Costa Civic Theatre, Missouri Street Theatre, and Lamplighters Music Theatre. I recently graduated from Circle in the Square Theatre School with a diploma in Musical Theatre. I’m now based in Brooklyn, ready to work with anyone within the five boroughs!

I started cooking when I was nine years old. My mother was in the hospital for nine days, and I was left to my father’s care. He’s a great father, but an absent-minded man who only ate once a day, so I lived off of what I could make for myself-cereal and soy sauce top ramen. I vowed to never be dependent on someone else to cook for me, and I want to give that same independence to you! I’ll teach you how to make simple flavorful dishes on a budget, so that you can be in control of what you eat (and hopefully we wont make too big a mess in the process).

I was born and raised in the Loire Valley of France (the "Valley of the Kings"), where the purest form of French is spoken. Contrary to what you may have been told by other teachers, the accent learned in Paris is harsh and jarring to most people, much like the New York City accent sounds rough to most Americans. But, having also lived in Paris for 22 years, I can teach that accent, too, if that is what you prefer.

In my numerous years of teaching French I have brought many students to complete fluency using the unique, proprietary teaching method I developed.

I teach a full range of students: from complete beginners, to people preparing for travel, to university professors needing assistance in book translations.

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled. I also touch on the etymology of words and how English and French are frequently interrelated. This is a great way for ...

I teach a full range of students: from complete beginners, to people preparing for travel, to American high school French teachers wanting to enhance their understanding of the language, to university professors needing assistance in book translations.

To keep lessons interesting and fun, I always connect real-life situations to what you are learning, so the information sticks and is easily recalled.

About Julia G.

I am an experienced, certified teacher with 2 years of formal classroom teaching experience at the university level and 9 years of one-on-one teaching and tutoring experience. I welcome all ages and levels and have experience teaching ages Kindergarten through older adults. As a teacher, I believe that learning a new language is a truly personal and transformative experience and as such I work with each student to create their own personalized long-term and short-term lesson plans to reach their goals.

About Julia
I am working on a Master's degree graduate French with an emphasis on second-language education. I am also a certified teacher in the state of Arizona and teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced French at the university level. Additionally, I have experience teaching children (Kindergarten through high-school) and adults. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and ability levels and take pride in helping them experience the joy of learning, or perfecting, French.

As a teacher, I believe that language learning should be a fun, exciting, and personal experience and work to tap into each student's individual motivations and strengths to help them reach their goals. As such, I work with each student to create individualized lesson plans as they embark on their language learning journey. I, myself, learned French through a combination of l
essons, classroom teaching, and several visits to Paris and the south of France and aim to cultivate the same joy and wonder in my students that I vividly remember experiencing when I had my first successful conversation in French.

I have a personal passion for language learning and speak fluent French and English as well as intermediate-level Spanish and beginning Arabic. As such, I find it incredibly rewarding to work with students with a variety of interests and at all levels. (I am currently working in France for the summer, so my availability is completely online and in the morning hours US time due to the time change. I will have a wider variety of hours available upon my return to the US in August).
