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 34 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I have +15 years of expertise as a professional photographer. I will be your teacher today.

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.

Photography is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Sunyoga meditation as a teacher, and acupressure therapy. 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 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 different countries working together towards that goal.

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. To be clear I am not into industrial stuff. I am into a personalized and genuine approach which in my experience saves a lot of time and is way more efficient.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares some 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
I hope the choice of words reflects my philosophy

Bonjour a tous!

Dear French Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows everyone to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons always begin with a dialogue, no matter your level. From how you are feeling, to what you did during the week, to the weather of your best friend's gossip, we warm up with a conversation I type out as we go.

The rest of the lesson is then spent reviewing previous work and introducing new material in a variety of ways, constantly setting a rule in practice. Poems, songs or texts, depending on your interest, keep the content alive and interesting.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. No matter what your reasons for learning a foreign language are, ultimately it's a part of your SELF DEVELOPMENT. Treat it as such.
2. I don't believe in "good or bad with languages" stereotype. I have taught for many years and learnt that everyone is "language talented" when they actually want to speak a new language. And if you are one of them I garantie that my method will work for you.
3. My program might appear quite different from the ones you have tried or seen before and goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

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

3. My program might appear quite different from the ones you have tried or seen before and goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

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

For over 6 years of professional experie
nce 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 implemented 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 during the learning process and that is when your classes are comprehensible, interesting and engaging.

*****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.

My strong interest for languages oriented me towards a "Literature Baccalaureate" for which I studied - among other fields - German, English, Ancient Greek and Latin, and graduated Summa cum Laude in 2010. After high school, I went on to study for five years at Sciences Po Paris, France's elite school for social and political sciences.

Learning about the hidden history of words and the construction of sentences has always fascinated me, and I strongly believe that this is what makes the difference between a regular native speaker, and one who can actually transmit his knowledge of the language. Writing and speaking a proper french is not enough. When it comes to teaching, one has to be able to explain the "why" behind each word, idiom and grammatical rule, because that is how we remember best. Combined with a burning desire to understand movies, songs and books in their original version, this method makes wonders. Because as my best teacher once told me : “ We get into a culture ...

About Soleine
I'm a native of the south of France who loves everything that comes with learning and teaching a new language, ranging from basic grammar to literature, including oral conversations about pop culture.

Grateful for francophiles' interest in my native tongue, I'd welcome the opportunity to help you sharpen your skills and clear seemingly obscure concepts. Along the way, I hope to be able to communicate with you my keen interest for the French history, its twists and turns and important figures.

But first and foremost, I will adapt the content of my lessons to reach YOUR specific goal, wether it is to chat with friends, understand the news, or even get a job !

I have a Ph.D. in French from the Ohio State University with twenty years of teaching experience (private lessons, language institutions, and universities).
Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school.
I love teaching French. My teaching methodology depends on each of my students and their specific needs and goals in learning the French language. It is important to me to keep my students interested, motivated, and engaged while learning the language. I always try to assure that my students feel comfortable and confident in speaking French in a friendly and fun environment.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in French at the Ohio State University where at the same time I worked as a Graduate Teaching Associate instructing French courses for 6 years.

Do you want to be immersed in French culture ? I am a native French speaker and I have experience in teaching various skills : high-school level French, Maths, Biology and college-level Geomorphology and Hydrogeology.

I am thrilled to share my French culture and teach my mother tongue to any student, whatever your level and expectations are. I adapt my teaching methods to you. For beginners, I focus on a way to teach fast simple everyday sentences and basics (and when you are an English speaker it is easier than you would think !). For more advanced levels I include various course materials, such as newspapers, videos, TV shows, songs and so on.

I am curious to know what brings you to learn French ! I am available to any request on my teaching methods or to talk about your goals ! See you soon.

About Rejanne
I am a French citizen and I moved to the US in 2017 for a postdoctoral position in my original field : I have a Ph.D in Geology. During my studies I had the opportunity to teach very various skills such as French grammar, High-school Maths and Biology, or College-level Geomorphology and Hydrogeology. I also volunteered a couple of years to teach French as a foreign language to non-French adults, in France.

I love the challenge that teaching is, adapting to every student and their goals. While teaching French to my American husband I got really interested in the mechanisms of learning French as a native American English speaker. I can cover all the specificities of French : grammar, vocabulary and of course pronunciation.

Learning a language is not only about grammar and pronunciation, so if you are interested to know more about Fre
nch culture, food, philosophy, let me be your guide !

Having French parents has given me the opportunity to be fluent in French. My skills were also later reinforced academically by attending French classes as well as taking AP French.
I offer a structured and tailored guidance that will help you achieve your goal whether it is improving your colloquial level of French focusing more on speaking and understanding, or it being more academically such as passing the AP. I have personally taken AP French achieving a score of 5 and will offer exceptional guidance so that my student can achieve the same.
Enthusiastic, focused, I will make sure the client's time is not put to waste.
