Indulge yourself by learning languages. It opens your prospect to a new different world with a different culture, you feel like you gain a new person and a new experience while networking with new people around you. I personally admire languages and would like to share this passion with you. I invite you to start expanding your horizon by choosing a new language. I came recently to U.S. and I was tutoring languages "Arabic, French and English" back in my country. I hope to build a good reputation here too with my students. I'm so patient toward kids, and I like to innovate methods to engage early learners (songs, stories, games...). My only goal is to reach your needs and desire to learn then proceed from there in a fun immersion method.
I've been teaching French for 4 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

This is my first language, I had my high school in french and I speak, read, write fluently. "la vie est belle"
I have been speaking French my all life. I studied in french, and I had my high school in French and now I am pursuing my bachelor in Logistic& Supply Chain Management in english in USA at Florida International University. I love teaching french, I am a great teacher very patient, I am passionate about learning languages, teaching others and I am very proud to be seen as a role model of best practice in this area. And finally, I enjoy traveling, photography and spending time with my family.
One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in advanced conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.
I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn.

Why do I like to bring art and music into the learning journey? Let me tell you one of the biggest secrets I've dis
covered. Art and music can allow you to make a joyful memory, which takes the fleeting moment into the longterm part of your brain, causing you to remember more and put it into what you call "muscle memory" all because you're happy!
Speaking of the arts, I play guitar, ukulele, charango, piano, and I sing! I've been a musician since 2000, and I've successfully turned a hobby into something my husband and I have been doing full time for several years. For beginners, something that works best is taking a song that you LOVE and turning it into your anthem on the instrument of your choice. So pick your song and message me!
Last but not least, I'm a painter. Painting is my favorite part of any day. About my childhood, I can candidly say I had the best stepmom. She would let me take her enormous canvases, oil paints, and brushes and just let me at it. Of course at first they were all of my hand prints and rainbows, but she got me curious, and eventually we started going to museums. I've seen Vangogh, Monet, Divinci, Picasso, and many more as they toured through our city. I began to study their techniques and grow my gift. My "Mama Sue" gifted me a hunger for creativity and excellence, and I can't thank her enough. Painting with me, you will grow in your technique, skill, and confidence, and pick up a little artist history along the way.
I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping you accomplish your dreams!
Loren is an amazing teacher. She is patient, kind and caring. She listened to what I needed in preparation for going to Valencia Spain and then customized the lessons. I think we had a lot of fun together as I slowly began to catch on to the dialect of eastern Spain. BTW - she also knows French! I wish her the very best as she continues teaching others!

Loren is a absolute joy! You will feel so empowered to learn guitar for her even after the first lesson. Plus, she uses many other methods to teach guitar that it feels like you’re having fun and learning at the same time.

Amazing! Loren is a wonderful instructor- I can’t believe how much I learned during my very first lesson. She was knowledgeable, patient, thorough and such a kind person. I can’t wait for my next lesson!!
Experienced professional teacher, specializing in beginner and intermediate students. I have worked primarily with teens and adults, but welcome all ages to join me in their learning adventure. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Language and Literature and a Master of Arts in Teaching.
One of the most important things about learning is knowing what your goals are, and I'm happy to help guide you to the proficiency you desire! My methods steer more towards comprehensible input, an approach that allows us to dive right into French, no matter the topic. If you've tried to learn before and are expecting verb conjugation charts, you won't find too much of that here. Let's get to know one another, tell stories, and fill our tool kit with essential skills and fun vocabulary we want to use. This approach doesn't mean we won't ever discuss grammar or usage -- those things are important too! But you will learn them in context, embedded in our lessons, activities, and discussions.
I'm a lover of languages and learning. To me, speaking another language is like unlocking a secret to another world and I love sharing that feeling with others. I first started learning French in 1993. My 7th grade best friend and I thought it would be very cool to learn French, as everyone else was studying Spanish. We had those adolescent daydreams of speaking a "secret" language to one another as we walked down the hall. We didn't quite get there in 7th grade, but French absolutely grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Even after our family moved to a small town that didn't offer French, I still studied on my own until I eventually went to college. The rest is history!
My friends describe me as casual, friendly, helpful, and understanding. My goal is to help you reach your goals, whether that means casual phrases for vacation time or buil
ding to full fluency. To do this, I listen to the things you want to learn instead of telling you what you must learn. As a certified public school teacher, I know how to structure our conversations to get where you want to go.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Langauge and Literature, and a Master of Arts in Teaching. I have been tutoring and teaching in public high schools since 2014 and am excited to start an online endeavor with you!
Excellent teaching skills!! University professor in US and France. Lived in Paris 8-years + Masters degree from university in Paris. I bring a unique prospective to teaching and make learning a joy. Traveling to France, or just want to brush up on your language skills? Let's speak French!
Bonjour all! I've been an educator most of my career. I lived in France for many years and loved every moment! French did not come easily to me which is why of all the disciplines I teach, I think French is one of my strongest suits. It's such a beautiful language to be a part of and I love sharing this knowledge. I'm also involved in movement education and have a small studio in the valley. I've now been in the Arizona the past three years, after spending the last two decades between NYC and Paris.

"I wanted to learn French for a business trip, but I was dreading it because I struggled with languages so much in high school. After working with Marianne
, I was pleasantly surprised with how much easier it was than I expected. She really adapted to me and helped me figure out the best ways to learn. And she's very patient. Highly recommend!"
Chloe & Aiden
"Helen is so patient with our kids. They love her and she makes learning fun! They are working on their numbers in French so she had them play go fish to h
elp keep the kids entertained. Highly recommend her!"
"Very good and friendly. She understands the level of the student and delivers the lessons based on that"
"I have taken 3 sessions with Isabelle and so far I am already so much more confident in my ability to learn conversational French that will help me work m
y way towards being fluent in French. She is patient and describes everything in such detail until I am able to fully understand what she is teaching. Having this role is so important, and she far exceeds all of my expectations!"
"J'ai très bien appris. Awesome teacher, I would definitely recommend her!"
"Roman is incredibly well organized, thorough in his explanations, and his instruction seems very targeted toward my goal. Highly recommend!"
How can a word be masculine or feminine, and how do you tell the difference? Tutor Willy M. shares some secrets to help you memorize your French vocabulary...
One of the hardest things for many students of French to learn is how to tell the difference between masculine and feminine French nouns. Gender with regards to words is not something we spend a lot of time thinking about in English, but in French vocabulary every single noun will have either a masculine gender or a feminine gender.
