About Jinky
Bonjour!

I really enjoy teaching everything about the French and English languages. If you're looking to brush up on your French, looking for an after-school tutor for help in a French course or would like to start learning this lovely language, I am happy to personalize tutoring sessions to your goals!

I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor's of Arts in French, French Literature and Psychology. I have over 8 years of teaching experience. I have studied in Paris and lived in Tours, where I taught English to high school students preparing for the Baccalauréat. In the US, I have taught ESL courses to adults and French I-IV to high school students in the Jacksonville area.

If you're curious to read more about French or language learning in general, listed below are a few articles I have written for the TakeLessons
blog. Check them out along with all the wonderful articles written by other TakeLessons tutors!

Natalie is an amazing teacher! My son (12) was really struggling in French, but since working with Natalie he's doing so much better and feels much more confident in his studies. She is very organized with her lesson plans, keeps me posted on how he's doing, and my son really enjoys working with her. We're very fortunate to be working with her.

Lacey, WA

I have taught English to a wide variety of people in both America and abroad. Having lived abroad and learned another language, I understand the difficulty in memorizing vocabulary, dealing with grammar that is confusing, listening to people who are speaking too fast, and not understanding the culture. I cut through this difficulty with lessons that focus on what I think is most important, having a conversation and tailor lessons to students' needs giving students what they need most each lesson.

About Daniel
I have been teaching for over ten years in a wide variety of situations and in a lot of different places. I have lived in two of the biggest cities in the world, New York and Tokyo. I have visited quite a few countries. I have taught people from all over the world. Doing that has given me a lot of interests and information. I am always trying to learn more from my students and also share with them the many things that I have learned from students, travel, and life in general. I am open, outgoing, positive and I am very good at focusing on details and coming up with a plan. That helps me figure out what students need, make a plan for them, and motivate them to follow it. I have a lot of interests, so I am easy to get along with and talk to. I love music, travel, cooking, health, the outdoors, sports (bouldering, hiking, watersport
s, the beach, etc.).

The most obvious reaction by a student who's studying English as a Second Language is, "This is different from my native language." That's why I begin with a systematic discussion of the differences between English and the student's native language. For example, there's a rule in Spanish that words don't begin with "sp," so we have the words 'espagnol' and 'especial.' As a result, native speakers of Spanish have trouble pronouncing "Spanish" and 'special."
This is what psychologists call "negative transfer," and there are many other examples.
Once we have dealt with negative transfer issues, I proceed on the principle that it is easier to go from pictures to words than from words to words, so I use a lot of picture books, which lend themselves to discussion questions.

About Jim
From the time I was about 12, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. It's the only thing I've ever wanted to do, and the only thing I've ever done. I taught Russian for 31 years at the University of Missouri-Columbia, and now that I'm a Professor Emeritus, I miss the classroom and want to teach as much as possible.

I am a dedicated, TEFL certified, native English speaker with experience teaching learners of all ages. I view teaching and learning as a dynamic and interactive process. I promise a warm, patient, and goal-oriented approach; as well as sensitivity to strengths, weaknesses, and personal learning styles.

I am able to develop a curriculum that is appropriate to your learning abilities and reflects your needs and interests.

Already enrolled in an English course and just need additional help from a tutor? I got you. Want to practice conversational English outside of the textbook? Let's chat!

About Ruthnie
I am a newly certified TEFL instructor with several hours of English tutoring under my belt. Although I primarily teach English as a second language, I have also worked one-on-one with native English speaking students to help with essay writing, resume editing, and practice with pronunciation and grammar for public speaking.

I believe that lessons should accommodate the your specific learning style. I find that making learning fun gives my students incentives to practice more; and practice make fluency!

As the daughter of non-native speakers, I have developed a keen ear for understanding various accents, and have a considerable amount of patience that puts my students at ease.

Our lessons are you-centered, so let's get started today!
