The first session with Matthew, I can tell things are going to be okay. This makes me feel better; I could say right off the bat; he knows what he is teaching.

Currently taking lessons with Matthew after extensive search due to my intricate schedule and English level. Matthew's background, experience, presentation, and - during this time period - flexibility, make him an outstanding instructor. Highly recommended!

About Lars
My name is Lars and I am looking forward to teaching you guitar. I've been teaching guitar for about 5 years. I fully believe that anybody can learn to play well, if they work hard, stick with it and has a passion for it. Because I did. It took a lot of work for me and did not come easy. It's never easy, nor should it be, because a person is learning something real and not just pushing buttons. But the rewards of getting better are fantastic, a sense of accomplishment and confidence is being built in a person as a result of hard work. And of course it's really fun and in my opinion the best th
ing in the world. The starting age doesn’t matter, old or young, a person can get so much out of music on so many levels.
In addition to music, I also teach the Swedish language, (conversation only) and Tennis. I was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. Grew up playing tennis, was a competitive junior player and also played briefly on the circuit. I’ve been coaching tennis in Atlanta since 1989. I worked at clubs, swim/tennis neighborhoods and independently. While having been a touring musician I found the sports side being very complementary to it and probably kept me out of more trouble at times.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Cheers

About Amanda
Hi there! I'm Amanda!

Congratulations on starting/continuing your language journey in French! I would love to join you! I'm a PhD student at the University of Florida studying Linguistics with a specialization in Second Language Acquisition (aka the best ways to learn languages)!!! Different, from the other individuals listed here, I am not a language teacher, I am a language COACH. It's time to learn a language like it's the 21st century! Let's work together to reach your goals!

What is a language coach?

As a language coach, I enable students to focus on their goals and hold them a
ccountable for accomplishing them. I promote student agency and allow students to make choices about their own learning; this way each lesson fits their individual needs and differences. As your own language and success coach, we will not only work together to understand the target language vocabulary and grammar, but we will also delve into the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to study quickly and efficiently, feel comfortable speaking the language, and get ahead in other areas of your life as well!

My mission for each lesson is to provide a language learning experience unique in its approach to incorporate strategy instruction including reducing foreign language anxiety, building agency, and developing self-regulated learning skills. My coaching objective is to help learners reach their second language goals through not only language teaching, but student empowerment as well. I aim to help students realize and build their own agency, resulting in a self-actualized, relaxed, and engaged learning environment. Through this one-of-a-kind coaching method, success is having my students end each tutoring session feeling positive, and eventually ending tutoring sessions all together knowing that they are competent, intelligible, and composed speakers of the target language.

I have been a language instructor and coach since 2009 teaching children English in France through the TAPIF program. I have taught/coached undergraduates French at both the Ohio University (where I earned my BA and MA in French) and the University of Florida (where I am earning my PhD in Linguistics). Further, I have taught English as a Second Language at the University of Florida as well as Santa Fe College.

As a researcher, I have focused my life's work and dissertation on the topic of lowering Foreign Language Anxiety in foreign language learners. Foreign Language Anxiety is often cited as the number 1 correlation to achievement in acquiring the target language. Do you get nervous when you attempt to speak the language that you've learned? Are you scared what others are going to think of you? Do you have perfectionist tendencies? Well, helping you manage Foreign Language Anxiety while learning French would be exactly my skill set!

While I am a seasoned, SLAT (Second Language Acquisition and Teaching) certified instructor and am able to teach at the university level, tutoring is my true passion. I began tutoring in 2008 at Ohio University and I have not stopped since. My youngest tutee was 4 years old and my oldest tutee, who is still working with me, is 72 years old. I can cater to all ages, language levels, individual differences, objectives and goals, attitudes, and motivation levels. Send me a message with any questions that you have, and we can chat and set some goals for your language learning journey.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you in any way possible in the world of French or ESL! Talk to you soon! :)

About Jane
Hello, my name is Zhenya, and I am a native Russian speaker. I also majored in teaching Russian language and literature at my undergraduate school. I have lived in the United States for over 25 years, so I am completely bi-lingual in English and Russian. There is an advantage to learning a language from a native speaker. i.e., you will be able to learn the correct pronunciation and usage. I teach beginner, intermediate and advanced level classes. I will cater my lessons to your unique needs and current skill level, and will give you a flavor of culture and idiomatic expressions.

I was out of school for more than 10+ years when I decided to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education. I knew with all the papers that I would have to write I needed a tutor. Amy was strongly recommended. She held me accountable to have my drafts completed before each scheduled meeting. She taught me the importance of knowing the audience for whom I would be writing, how to use the correct vocabulary; so that the reader knew exactly what I was conveying. It was stressed that a well written paper should have an awesome opening, body and conclusion. My confidence grew with each paper that I wrote for indeed she had taught me the process. I wrote papers of different genres; while receiving outstanding scores from my professors. Amy is great at what she does and is highly recommended.
