I began playing violin as a young child, and progressed to several hours a day during my teenage years. I taught throughout college, both as a violin instructor and as a private instructor.

My teaching programs vary according to the level of the student, and the goal he or she has set for him/herself, be it as a support to a school educational program or a personal love for music and/or the violin that seeks to develop itself into a practice.

About Gabrielle A.

Bonjour a tous!

Dear 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 language books, which allows everyone to work at his or her own pace during the week. This is supplemented by tailored PDFs that target your particular interests.

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!

Gabrielle is a fantastic teacher. She not only is a native French speaker she is also a grammar guru! She has helped me finally understand my verb conjugations (probably because she teaches young children and can reduce the information to the simplest terms - thanks Gabrielle). She’s also patient and lovely and wonderful to work with. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier.

My daughter came out of her first lesson all smiles! She said she learned more in 1 lesson then she did in months in her last French class.

I feel like I'm going to learn quite a lot if I stick with this instructor. I would gladly recommend her for any level of French learner. As an intermediate learner, I've already improved my skills in just a few sessions.

Gabrielle is great at teaching my 9 year old french. She makes his lessons fun and keeps him engaged so that he always looks forward to his lessons. She does a great job engaging with the interests of her students, instead of sticking to a rigid lesson plan and losing the student. For example, quietly inserting verb conjugation and tense training into the telling of a story her student is determined to share with her. She really works with the kid's interests and gets their buy-in and engagement.

I've been taking lessons from Gabrielle for several months now, and I honestly think that she is an amazing teacher.

Gabrielle focuses on the individualized needs of each student and creates lessons and conversations to help the learner succeed. Her unique style of synchronous visual and auditory prompts through the online medium is extremely effective in the retention and understanding of concepts. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

Gabrielle was WONDERFUL!! She was truly the best teacher my son has ever had. She’s warm, lovely, encouraging. Everything you would want in a teacher. We’re very sorry to see her go, as she is moving. It will be very hard to replace her.

This is our first experience with a violin teacher. My daughter has so far loved the classes. Gabrielle is playful with the child and very energetic. She is very careful and detailed in her approach which is very important when working with a child who is beginning to learn. She keeps the child engaged through out the class, with games, little dance steps, striking conversation with the child etc. She has interesting ideas and techniques to teach this difficult instrument to a five year old. So far we are very happy with Gabrielle.
