About Kevin F.

View Full Profile

I studied French in high school and college and spent a month in Marseilles. I am perfectly capable of helping you learn the basics of the language, how to pronounce words correctly and conjugate basic verbs and such.

About Kevin
I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b
ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

I waited after a few lessons to give feedback. Very pleased. Kevin is full of knowledge -both relevant to music and other random fun facts! He is patient and will move at whatever pace you prefer. I look forward to continuing to improve my skills under his direction.

Jaouad is an excellent Arabic language teacher! My kindergartner enjoys his weekly session with him. he is very easy going and knows exactly how to relate to such a young student. He is very positive and encouraging, which makes my daughter more at ease and allows her to benefit a lot from the lesson. My daughter has shown notable progress and more importantly, she's excited to speak the language! I'm very happy with the results and highly recommend him as a teacher!

Natahlie was a great instructor I have taken classes before at Berlitz for work and had a much harder time getting started. Working with a instructor one on one made me feel more comfortable than a class room setting. In the past I have had instructors more concerned with covering material than making sure everyone is on the same page. Natahlie was very patient we me and made sure I understood the different nuances of the language before moving ahead with the lesson.

About Julia G.

Close

I am an experienced, certified teacher with 2 years of formal classroom teaching experience at the university level and 9 years of one-on-one teaching and tutoring experience. I welcome all ages and levels and have experience teaching ages Kindergarten through older adults. As a teacher, I believe that learning a new language is a truly personal and transformative experience and as such I work with each student to create their own personalized long-term and short-term lesson plans to reach their goals.

About Julia
I am working on a Master's degree graduate French with an emphasis on second-language education. I am also a certified teacher in the state of Arizona and teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced French at the university level. Additionally, I have experience teaching children (Kindergarten through high-school) and adults. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and ability levels and take pride in helping them experience the joy of learning, or perfecting, French.

As a teacher, I believe that language learning should be a fun, exciting, and personal experience and work to tap into each student's individual motivations and strengths to help them reach their goals. As such, I work with each student to create individualized lesson plans as they embark on their language learning journey. I, myself, learned French through a combination of l
essons, classroom teaching, and several visits to Paris and the south of France and aim to cultivate the same joy and wonder in my students that I vividly remember experiencing when I had my first successful conversation in French.

I have a personal passion for language learning and speak fluent French and English as well as intermediate-level Spanish and beginning Arabic. As such, I find it incredibly rewarding to work with students with a variety of interests and at all levels. (I am currently working in France for the summer, so my availability is completely online and in the morning hours US time due to the time change. I will have a wider variety of hours available upon my return to the US in August).

About Barbara
Hallo,Hello,Bonjour

I was born and raised in Germany and have a masters in German ESL and French. I had the opportunity to study in Paris, France and also worked as an assistant teacher in Oxford. After my studies in Germany I worked as an international exchange teacher for VIF, an American company, in Charlotte, NC and then went back to Germany where I received my lifetime position. I then returned to the US, Houston, TX with another teacher exchange program from Germany where I taught for three years and then returned to Germany again where I taught as the head of the French language department. After three years I went back to Houston, TX and worked at a German, British and French private school and then continued to work independently for my own business BU LLC Language and Learning Center. I work with corporate clients to prepare
them with language and cultural training when they start working in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. I also work with a lot of expads of all ages who either do not want to loose their mother tongue or want their children to learn it as part of their heritage. Moreover I teach online for the Air Force and with expads who went back home or to their destination country for work abroad. I love the fact that I meet and work with a huge and interesting variety of people of all ages from all over the world. I am a strong believer in intrinsic learning and I customize each lesson to the needs and goals of every student. I am very much looking forward to working on this platform.

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!
