I will be focusing on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone, for example as some students struggle to learn English on their own with this methodology. I can recommend websites and books.

About Isabelle
I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (9-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment. In fact I have worked in-countries and remotely with people located in France, Poland, India, Canada, Guatemala and Brazil. I speak some Spanish and German, and that might help you as well, depending on your background. I am happy to add a cultural dimension to the language support. For Life Coaching lessons, I draw from my experience and best practices. I will share simple yet highly effective tips and approaches to help you meet your needs.

For best results; I recommend a minimum of 2 (two) 45-minute sessions per week. I look for students
sincerely interested in making great strides and committed.

Happy to start any time soon. THX for visiting my profile. Questions welcome!

View Full Profile

French is among the most important languages in the world; over 7% of the world's population speak it and it is the third most important language in the business world. Unfortunately, French is notorious for being gratuitously difficult. On the bright side, I have over 7 years of experience with French, I speak it fluently and I teach it up until the intermediate level. I tutor French in a fun and engaging way that captivates my students and has them speaking it in a provisional amount of time. Along with the basics, I also delve into the technicalities of French grammar, spelling and reading. You've come to the right person, as you'll never have to be craven taking your next French test, impressing your French-speaking friend or visiting a francophone country after I 'fragment French'.

About Amadou
I am a distinguished graduate with Summa Cum Laude honors from Ivy Tech College. I make it my duty to break down many of the complexities in math and science that have been plaguing students since the beginning of time. I have over 7 years of teaching experience, and I have taught several middle-school and high-school students math, science and ACT/SAT prep who have went on to make 180 degree turns in their grades under my instruction. And because I have worked with such a vast diversity of people over the span of 16 countries throughout the world, I have developed the patience and understanding that is crucial in producing stellar students. Age has never been a problem with me, as I've helped several post-graduate students straighten out their grievances in math and science.

As an engineering major at IIT, I naturally maintain an ex
emplary study ethic that inspires my students to achieve more. I bring results. I relate to my students by incorporating elements of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, music, etc...) into their most challenging courses allowing them to develop a passion for the courses I tutor. Additionally, I always make a conscious effort to work at each student's own pace and I make it my priority to decompose enigmatic topics into components that can be more easily internalized by my students, effectively increasing their grades and giving them the self-confidence and enthusiasm they need to fuel their future academic endeavors. I guarantee quality, commitment, and a passion for training my students to be the best.

I have lived in over 20 countries, which allowed me to speak several languages, and which permitted me to maintain my patience, élan and spirit of enthusiasm when dealing with even the most extreme personalities. I have solid background in both math and the natural sciences, as I have consistently maintained a 4.0 G.P.A since high school. I am now studying mechanical engineering at IIT, and I have gotten 5s in all of my AP Chemistry, AP Physics and AP Biology exams. I have also been the winner of many STEM-related competitions, through my demonstrating of exemplary leadership qualities and through my brainstorming of blue-sky ideas. I am also a "Mental-Math" practitioner, reflexologist and guitarist. I believe that everyone has potential; however potential is worthless unless put in motion. And experts like me value ourselves in our abilities to give students that push, that jolt of energy that galvanizes them into pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps, allowing them to achieve academic excellence.

Amadou is fantastic! My daughter is 9, going into the 4th grade and math has been a struggle for her. Kara was very nervous at first, as this was her first online class! Amadou helped her become comfortable fast. She loved the fact that he could make her laugh. He has the skill to make math fun! She was so encouraged with the lesson and feels so much more confident in what she's learned. She was surprised at how much she picked up so quickly with the little 'tools' Amadou went over. What a great class/lesson. Thanks Amadou!

I have ten years experience tutoring Spanish, French, and English as a Second Language. I minored in French and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris as well as in Geneva, Switzerland. I tailor the curriculum to the student depending on their goals in learning French as well as particular countries or cultures they are most interested in. Whether you are learning for fun, plan to take a vacation, or wish to live in a French speaking country, I can help you reach your goals.

About Jackie
Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile. Just a side note, I DO have a background check just not through the company TakeLessons wants me to use. I have taught elementary and middle school aged children through this website (as well as adults.) I have experience tutoring high school students in Spanish and French as an undergrad in college. I also taught English abroad while I studied in Geneva, Switzerland. I have taught English as a Second Language as a volunteer in the city.

I am TEFL certified and have a B.A. in Political Science - concentration in International Politics, minors in French and Theatre.

About Ky
Bonjour!! I have a strong passion for the French language. Any opportunity I get to speak in my second language, I take it! I have traveled to France several times and have been to Quebec, Canada once. After spending nine months in Lyon France, I took a leap of faith in 2005 and began teaching at my former French immersion elementary school. I became a French immersion teacher and taught for eleven years. I loved every minute of it! I truly enjoy sharing my passion for French with others.

I am Belgian and my native language is French. Having lived in Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland and France, I have practiced a very neutral accent and that is what I teach. Aside from basic sentences (that are boring...), I make sure that you learn French while having fun. We also choose together the best way for you to get immersed as that is essential to learn a language (I know that for being fluent in 5 languages myself). looking forward to meeting you!

About Nadia
I am a real estate professional and work together with my husband. It is a great business, but I want to share my love and knowledge of French with students who are passionate about languages too.
Being fluent in 5 languages (French, Dutch, German, Luxemburgish and English) and having studied ancient Greek and Latin, I can say that I love languages, etymology, grammar and spelling.
I have lived in Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, France and South Africa.
Traveling is a second nature for me.
My background is in the financial industry, but I left the Corporate world in 2001, being much more attracted by the freedom of being self employed.
I like to have fun and make it a point to bring some in my lessons.
