Jonathan has a demonstrable amount of knowledge about the violin including different playing styles, music theory, and its practical application. His approach is incremental and measured that adapts to my specific strengths and weaknesses intermixed with an appropriate amount of patience. He is also very personable. I always look forward to our lessons together.

I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! 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 typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

I've been teaching French for 4 years. It is true that French language can be challenging to learn but with my help and experience (and some homework), you'll be able to speak fluently in a reasonable period of time! I want you to enjoy learning, so we'll work conjugation, grammar rules, pronunciation etc, but most importantly, we'll work on your interests, what inspires you, the reason why you want to learn French. We'll watch videos, read articles, listen to songs... Remember, my priority is your expectations! And my English is very good...

About Jean-Gabriel
Hi everyone! I'm a French teacher. A perfect pronunciation, tools for work or casual conversation and grammar rules are essential to be well understood. I'll help you master these. I've been doing subtitling for French TV channels since 2010. I also love to teach, play and talk about music (any kind of music such as house music, dubstep, jazz, reggae, ska, Latino, rock, blues, classical French music...). I can teach you how to sing, play guitar, bass, drums, percussion, and also electronic music with softwares like Protools, Logic Audio, Fruity loops... (Mac or PC). I'm from the south of France (Provence) but I spent 9 years in Paris between 2003 and 2012, where I sang and played music in studios and live. I also worked for an Audiovisual school over there (ESRA Paris). I've been living in Seattle area from October 2012. I enjoy a lot sha
ring my experience and meeting new people who share theirs. My priority is you and your expectations. Let's meet, learn and have fun!

I've been teaching French for 13 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

My daughter Kira, who is 10 now, has been taking French lessons for almost two years with Alessandra. I can’t be happier with her progress! And I certainly can’t be happier with Aleksandra, who is not only a professor and can teach adults and teachers, but also has an amazing way with children!
My daughter loves her and always is looking forward to the next class, responsiby does her homework and able to teach me a few things :)
But what I truly appreciate as a parent as well, is that she is never late and always makes the day and time that has been arranged, which is very important with everyone’s busy schedules.
I would highly recommend Aleksandra for teaching children and adults!
My best friend is French, and I had Aleksandra over when my friend was visiting, my friend was impressed with her fluency of the language.

"Bonjour" and "Bievenue" to French tutoring! As an international singer, I can teach you the ins and outs of French so that you sound like a local, and can keep up in class or when you study abroad. We'll work on grammar, making up your own sentences, practicing conversations, and improving your pronunciation so you sound like a true francophone.

About Nicole
Nicole is available to teach lessons for students of all levels. Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles. She practices what she preaches: one night she might be singing Beyoncé, and the next morning she might be singing Handel's Messiah!

Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),
Michael Fennely (Carnegie Hall), Wei-En Hsu (Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra), and Candace Evans (Santa Fe Opera). Nicole earned her Associates in Theatre from Brigham Young University ('12) and went on to acquire her BM in Vocal Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University ('14).

Nicole is a very professional, dedicated and enthusiastic teacher. Not limited to Broadway singing, she's very knowledgeable about many different methods of singing and can teach various techniques based on how you want to showcase your voice. She's extremely caring and makes sure her students can take something from her lesson each time. Wish I could give her 10 stars!!!

New York, NY
View Full Profile

I am a native of France and have been teaching kids and adults for years.
Ranging from basic conversation to poetry and literature, I will use your favorite matters to familiarize you with French whether it is cooking, art, music, French culture... I can also assist you with all your applications, resumes and cover letters. I am willing to help my students with their French issues whether they are beginners or advanced.
As an opera singer, and a voice teacher, I also teach very specifically the French pronunciation. I coached singers' French pronunciation with operatic productions, and I love to combine the music within the language with the music itself. I also aim to help all singers and actors in freeing their natural voice thanks to the bel canto techniques.

About Anna
Dear student,
Here are a few facts about me.
I am a native of France. For a part of my life I had to follow a “practical” course, and earned a degree in aerospace engineering, a profession I practiced successfully for several years at the French spatial agency. But I was eventually able to abandon the engineering profession in order to devote myself entirely to my true calling.
As an opera singer, I have been performing in places such as Cortot concert hall in Paris or Carnegie Hall in New York. I have been teaching voice for years now, to kids and adults. I have also been teaching French since my arrival in the US.
I therefore teach French diction too, to professional singers and actors.
I also enjoy teaching music initiation to the little ones (3 to 6 years old).
I would be happy to answer all the questions regarding my work.
Wa
rmly,
Anna

Anna was a great teacher. She has always perfectly adapted to my needs and level, finding the appropriate ways to coach me. I have made considerable progress with her and would strongly recommend her sensitive and rigorous teaching.

Among many skills, she herself has an extraordinary voice and vocal technique which will make you even more willing to develop your vocal skills.

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!
