Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.
Jordan
Jordan really enjoyed his first lesson. Jonathan validated for him that the daily work he is putting in is helpful and gave him small steps to go forward with.

Private French Teacher

I first started learning French when I was in high school and was amazed at how many similarities it shared with Spanish (which both descend from Latin) which helped me to pick up things a lot faster. I have since lived in the "French House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters where residents are required to speak their target language while in their respective apartments. I also took a third-year advanced grammar French class while at college while living in the French House. French is just an awesome language to learn!

Mélody is an excellent teacher. She is flexible and works according to my needs and is great at explaining grammar rules and pronunciation in a way that I can understand. She is knowledgeable about grammar and how to learn languages and has innovative ideas about how to make learning fun. I highly recommend her as a language tutor!

Melody is an energetic, gifted tutor. The conversation is lively and precise. She is careful to explain the subtle meaning of works and phrases. I got to the level I desired with her. Will come back for periodic refreshers.

Private French Teacher

I was a high-school teacher at the French "Education Nationale" for 10 years during the first part of my career and then shifted to being a copywriter and a tutor in written communication for professionals (still in French). I am now an author but never stopped tutoring students of all ages.

I focus on learning methods and on practical exercises, for which private lessons are a privileged opportunity. The didactics of teaching are a passion of mine. They help in my own writing and encourage the rigor and open-mindedness that are necessary for all learning fields.

Having had a teaching experience both in-class and one-to-one, I genuinely appreciate the trust, confidence, and fun that the latter allows.

About Philippe

I am a French teacher with 10 years of experience in high school, 4 in individual tutoring, and 3 in training professional publics in written communication. Having the privilege of dual citizenship, I now enjoy living in the U.S and have become an author in my own right. I am indeed passionate about

Not only is she a native speaker (which is great), she also understands the grammatical structure of the language very well and knows how to present new material in a way that doesn't overwhelm you. She followed up every lesson with an email which made it easier for me to memorize new vocabulary. Overall, it's been a great experience and I highly recommend her."
