About Mikayla S.

Close

Living in France for 5 years now and completing my masters in teaching French as a second and foreign language at l'Université de Lyon 2, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. I've been teaching French for 3 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture and language! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in French phonetics so that you will be able to pronounce everything correctly.

I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I pull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using primarily in instruction are: Latitudes, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and Supermax (for kids). I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

About Mikayla
Bonjour tout le monde ! (Hello everyone!)

My name is Mikayla and I cannot wait to meet and teach you my favorite language and life's passion. I have been speaking French for half my life now and I have loved it since day one. I earned my Bachelors in French and Francophone Studies with a minor in European History from San Diego State University in 2014, lived and worked as and English and French teacher in Nîmes (south of France) and I now live in Lyon where I just completed my Masters-FLES (teaching French as a second and foreign language).

I tailor my lessons to fit my students. I look at your level, background, age and goals to find the best course of action for us to take. We work on grammar and vocabulary of course, but also phonetics and French and Francophone culture !

I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I p
ull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using for instruction are: Latitudes, Adomania, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and SuperMax. I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

Because I live in France, it may appear that my availability isn't all that great -- please note that I am very flexible and I am certain that we can find a time that works for both of us. If this is the case please contact me with times you were hoping to do.

Don't hesitate with any questions !
À bientôt ! (see you soon)

I Connected very well with Gina. The fact that I’m Brazilian and she also speaks Portuguese is perfect.
She can show the difference and the mistakes we Brazilian do when we speak Spanish. Looking forward our next lesson.
Thanks Gina

Bonjour!

I grew up about twenty minutes from the border with France and got to go there regularly from early on. I started learning French when I was 12 and started teaching it when I was 15 because, believe it or not, I enjoy the sometimes weird grammatical complexities of French.

At university I took advanced classes to continue learning and when I went to study in Canada I lived in a shared house with six native speakers of Canadian and European French. This year I spent the spring in Morocco and Togo where I got to experience two more varieties French.

I consider myself highly Francophile, enjoy reading in French and take pleasure in teaching it. Explaining grammar, spelling, pronunciation and difficult features of the language are my assets as I have been largely successful in sharing them with students, friends and acquaintances over the years.

Allons-y! :)

About Viktor
Hola, hallo, olá, ciao and bonjour !

My name is Viktor Malu and I'm a well-traveled linguist who is passionate about the nature and manifold applications of language. I have either lived or spent significant time in places where the languages I speak are alive and I strive to spark linguistic enthusiasm in the people around me. I have a talent for using existing knowledge of language, which we all have, even unknowingly, to make learning or improving a new language easier. Languages are vivid, fun, and adventurous, they often require patience and thrive with motivation - just like my classes!

I have recently graduated in Applied Intercultural Linguistics (B.A.) from the University of Augsburg, Germany. This is an interdisciplinary program that includes linguistic theory and practice as well as didactics and cultural studies. It allowed
me to spend two years studying and living in the English-, Spanish- and French-speaking Americas and Portugal. 

I started tutoring in English, French and Spanish when I was 15 and have continued teaching languages professionally and as a volunteer in a variety of settings, such as a private tutoring institute, a secondary school in Costa Rica, at university (phonetics and phonology), at an NGO's school for refugees and at a language school for adults and young professionals.

Let me be your source of knowledge, experience, wisdom and enthusiasm! Ready to tap in?

If you get a chance to learn with Viktor you can consider yourself very lucky! He tought me spanish for over a year before I went to Colombia and it was thanks to his help that I could get a good grip of the language so fast and am now fluent. What I found so special about him was the incredible combination of knowledge, teaching skills and personal warmth. In other words: You will learn a lot, in a very eficient manner and gain a friend at the same time! Thank´s a lot Viktor it was absolutely great to learn with you, I hope to see you soon!

About Alice B.

Close

I come from a bilingual; French American family. This allows me to communicate effectively with the people that are wanting to learn. We will go from the basics, working our way up.

About Alice
I have been shooting since 2005. Since, then I have been on the USA Archery National Teams several years in a row, as well as traveled to international countries to compete. I have been on the Recurve Junior Dream Team for a year, before I aged out, but before that I was attending camps as an invitee. I've also lived at the Olympic Training Center out in Chula Vista, CA for a few months shooting besides some of the top archers in the country. Since in college, I have been on the archery teams at all the schools I've been to. I was All American for two years in a row, hoping for a thrid chance at it. At the Florida Institute of Technology, I have started up an Archery Club, hoping to get the team to nationals, placing the school on the map for other archers to join.

I am a Level 2 Coach, aiming for her level 3 NTS Coaching Certificatio
n, and with my background experience I want to introduce this amazing sport to all individuals so they can also enjoy it to their hearts content. I used to coach at a range in Massachussets, as well as give private lessons at home, before moving down to Melbourne for college. I also make custom recurve bow strings, and tune equipment.

I provide private lessons, helping the students get comfortable with the sport before getting them to farther distances. I want the studnets to love thst sport that I do, by intergrating games into practices. When and if the students want to do group lessons, those can also be arranged to allow them to get used to shooting with their peers.

I love being able to teach people the sport that changed my life. I love seeing the smile on the childrens faces when they accomplish things they didnt excpect. I love seeing the expression on adults faces when they over come their doubt, and learn to enjoy the sport and relax into it.
