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.
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.
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.
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 !

Enjoying my progress so far. Thanks Tania!

Tania is being a great tutor. My interest is to brush up my French after 10 years w/o any practice - focused on conversation. I am really appreciating the classes with her. She brings the right balance correcting what is needed but with encouragement and positiveness to keep you confident and engaged.

All materials are created by me and edited by a group of talented language teachers and linguists. They are free and very useful no matter where, when and how you study French.

For over 7 years of professional experience as Russian/French/ESL teacher, I have worked with all types of students with different learning styles and various goals: taught within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and i
mplemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high rank executives at multinational companies, employees of U.S. Embassy and Department of State.
Thanks to all my students, current and former, I am now confident that every individual, willing to learn one of the languages I teach, without a doubt, has everything it takes to succeed when the right approach is applied.
It is one on one program, thouroughtly personalized and organized according to your interests (general and professional), schedule, final goals, learning style and many other important elements to be taken into account.
Each session is 50 minutes.
Every session is prepared to reach a particular goal and structured in the way to have a maximum profit from "teacher - student" part of learning. Supporting materials are sent after each session: grammar notes, retention exercises, homework assignments, audio and video files as phonetic exercises and listening practice. The content of these materials is permanently tested and modified in order to achieve the best way to engage each individual student's language acquisition mechanisms.
Teacher's support 24/7.
Extra curricula content: idiomatic language components, cultural studies (traditions, history, literature, cinema and language related etymology), recommendations for independent language practice.
The way I see it, with each new student - there is a new process in my head that starts and constantly creates and improves techniques, ideas, method components, teaching style e.t.c for getting this particular student to do the best he or she can.
More recommendations can be provided upon request.
Very thorough and patient in helping my 10 yr old daughter with new language.

Roman helped me understand the grammar better by using repetition and real life applications of when to say what. The material is given to you by Roman in great detail with his modules and it also helped me expand my vocabulary a substantial amount thanks to his methods. He helped me understand Russian better. Definitely recommend !!!
June 18, 2019
I have been studied with Roman for years. He is caring, attentive and very passionate about teaching and sharing what he know. He is the best teacher ever!
I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.
I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.
Come and join me!

Hello, and welcome to my profile! I am an American who also holds Italian citizenship. Currently, vagabonding at the moment, I have lived more than 3 years in France, where I have studied and worked; and have also worked as a French and Spanish teacher in the US. Deeply passionate about discovering other culutres and languges from a young age, I have turned that into a life-style and career, and look forward to teaching and exchanging with future students who are ready to open up worlds of knowledge and adventure. Are you ready to embark on this journey with me?
I have a Ph.D. in French from the Ohio State University with twenty years of teaching experience (private lessons, language institutions, and universities). Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school. I love teaching French. My teaching methodology depends on each of my students and their specific needs and goals in learning the French language. It is important to me to keep my students interested, motivated, and engaged while learning the language. I always try to assure that my students feel comfortable and confident in speaking French in a friendly and fun environment.
Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school. Therefore, I grew up appreciating together this new world with that of Persian tradition. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in French at the Ohio State University where at the same time I worked as a Graduate Teaching Associate instructing French courses for 6 years. For nearly twenty years, I have taught French at various language institutions as well as to private students. I can help you with anything relating to the French language.
I grew up in a French school leaning the history and ins and out of the French language. I have experienced the culture first hand through my several travels to France. I have also taken Latin classes which enabled me to learn more about the history pf the language. With me you will not only discover a new language, but will also uncover the beautiful history behind it.
My name is Mirchaye pronounced "Mer-Shy." I was born in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, where I was raised and completed my high school education. I attended a Lycee Francais, which is where I learned French. Fan Fact: It was the first language I learned how to read and write in even before my native language: Amharic.
At 17, I moved to the U.S., where I currently reside pursuing a career in Communications/Media.
For as long as I can remember, I loved to write and teach. My love for writing began when I got my first journal in the 8th grade. I loved it and wrote in it literally everyday. And, I first started teaching as an English Teaching Assistant volunteer at an orphanage in Ethiopia. I then also started teaching French.
Once I moved to the US and was attending college, I saw the need for language tutors so I applied
for a job as French Tutor. I worked there till I graduated college. Another fun fact: My first paid job was as a French Tutor. After college, I taught private French classes to high school and college students.
I now speak about 4 languages fluently. I will make learning fun & exciting. And, coming from a background of speaking different languages I know hoe best to teach someone a totally different language. I understand the learning curve in other words. I am currently teaching my husband, who's American, Amharic and it's been fun.
I loved her enthusiasm, professionalism and how she was always prepared to give her lesson. Indeed a great instructor! Merci Mirchaye🤗🤗

Mirchaye was extremely friendly and kind. She is quick to respond regarding appointments and scheduling. She provides me with feedback regularly on how I'm progressing, which I think is vital. She is always punctual and professional. I would highly recommend her tutoring service!

"I adore Meriem! She is a really kind and engaging teacher. It's always fun having a French conversation with her!"
"I would highly recommend Pascale to anyone searching for a French teacher. Pascale is a very good instructor. I had different instructors and classes in
the past but I was struggling and thought I will never learn French. I then decided to give myself another chance and I found Pascale. I had 4 classes already and I am very happy. Pascale is a professional teacher. She has tons of material and demos to help you understand better. She is very patient with me. Pascale is always prepared for a class. She motivates and encourages me to learn. Besides her native French she speaks very good and clear English so it really helps if you are a beginner."
