I have a B.A. in Foreign Languages and Literature issued by the University of Verona, Italy.
I have studied French for several years and I tutored it in the past. I will be very good to teach beginner to intermediate level.
I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.
I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Verona, Italy. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored Italian to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and Italian subjects.
I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker,
I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.
As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting. Of course, there are some exceptions. For instance, in the past I taught for a while TOEFL and for that type of classes I used more traditionalist and academic methods and materials.

One of my greatest passion is to cook. I was extremely lucky to be taught and introduced to the art of cooking by my grandmother. She was born at the beginning of the previous century and she lived in different cities so she got accustomed to different traditions and shared them with me. I love to cook for smaller groups, using traditional Italian ingredients to prepare simple, but exquisite dishes that belong to the tradition of my native country. If you want to experience some real Italian food, you are definitely in the right hands. Just sit back, relax sip a glass of Italian wine while I cook for you and I share my art.
I will be focusing on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone, for example as some students struggle to learn English on their own with this methodology. I can recommend websites and books.
I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (12-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment. In fact I have worked in-countries and remotely with people located in France, Poland, India, Canada, Guatemala and Brazil. I speak some Spanish and German, and that might help you as well, depending on your background. I am happy to add a cultural dimension to the language support. For Life Coaching lessons, I draw from my experience and best practices. I will share simple yet highly effective tips and approaches to help you meet your needs.
For best results; I recommend a minimum of 2 (two) 45-minute sessions per week for the first 20 les
sons to gain some momentum and build strong foundations. I look for students sincerely interested in making great strides and committed.
Happy to start any time soon. THX for visiting my profile. Questions welcome! Isabelle
In preparation for a trip to France, and not knowing any French at all, I started taking French lessons from Isabelle several months ago. She has helped me a lot with pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. She is an excellent teacher.

Isabelle is an absolutely marvelous teacher - anyone and everyone would benefit from taking classes with her.
I speak French well and my goal is to improve my conversational skills so that I can keep up with my monthly French book group. I am the only American in a group of French women and French is spoken the whole time.
Isabelle has been spectacular in helping me sharpen and improve my conversational skills. Our class is one long conversation - very carefully orchestrated by Isabelle so that each class is both productive and delightful.
I love to discuss the French culture and culture in general and Isabelle invariably makes that part of the conversation. But i think that Isabelle could talk with great knowledge and interest about many topics.
Each session flies by and each session makes my conversational skills sharper.
I feel very lucky that Isabelle is my teacher.

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.
I've been teaching French for 4 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to: 1) Teach you French from scratch, 2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or 3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!
1- Are you interested in teaching total beginners?
=> Of course! Actually, a lot of my students are beginners. It's fantastic to follow their progress and it's interesting to adapt the class a bit differently for each of them according to their preferences and abilities.
2- What type of lessons would you recommend?
=> For beginner or intermediate level: 60 min lessons => For advanced level: 30 min, 45 min or more (100% conversation). => For kids: 45 to 60 min, depending how young and how are their focus capabilities.
2- Is scheduling flexible? Do I have to pick a specific day/time and stick with it?
=> I'm very
I'm a native French speaker, but I do understand the joy & challenges of approaching a new language, as I also learned English, Italian and Tunisian (dialect of Arabic).
I moved from France to the USA in 2011 and my main job is being a costume designer specialized in opera. Through my work, I occasionally translate documents or help opera singers with their pronunciation & understanding of French lyrics. I've also been teaching French privately and I would like to share my love for this language and culture with more students. Takelessons has been an amazing tool for this so far!
I'm looking forward to meeting you online or in my neighborhood (Andersonville in Chicago).
Meriem was very friendly and positive. The time flew by. I hadn't spoken French in a while, so I was nervous at first. But she made me feel very comfortable. She was patient and always gave me plenty of time to formulate my responses. I'm looking forward to future classes.

Very practical and straight forward.

I adore Meriem! She is a really kind and engaging teacher. It's always fun having a French conversation with her!
"Superb teacher. The lessons are fun, interesting, and immensely productive. Each session is packed with conversation practice, notes and guidance on gra
mmar and vocabulary, and explanations for idiomatic phrases, cultural practices, and nuances of the language. The entire lesson is documented in writing for easy reference and review. David is a gifted and energetic instructor."
"I see why so many people have left such great reviews! Love Roman’s teaching style. I felt like everything was easy to digest and he really helped me unde
rstand the rules and grammar of French."
Morgan is an excellent instructor. He's given me the freedom in our lessons to choose topics that keep me interested and has used those
topics to further my understanding of the language. Morgan seems to have a broad understanding of learning in general and applies his framework very well to our lessons. I'm basically cramming for an upcoming trip and Morgan is crafting our lessons to get me where I need to be to survive."
"Gabrielle is great at teaching my 9 year old french. She makes his lessons fun and keeps him engaged so that he always looks forward to his lessons. She
does a great job engaging with the interests of her students, instead of sticking to a rigid lesson plan and losing the student. For example, quietly inserting verb conjugation and tense training into the telling of a story her student is determined to share with her. She really works with the kid's interests and gets their buy-in and engagement."
"Marie is awesome! She is very patient and thorough. I wanted to work on my accent and pronunciation, and I already feel myself improving even though we ar
e only a few lessons in."
"Great start on day 1 with Zach!"
"Roselyne is a great teacher. My daughter loves her French lessons. My daughter has been studying with her for 2.5 years. She is able to understand and pro
nounce French. I recommend both tutoring and summer camp with Roselyne."
"I took French lessons a few decades ago and since then I've been practicing from time to time. I can understand quite easily but when I have to talk, I'm
not sure about the grammar I use. Meriem helped me reviewing some basic principles that I've forgotten and provided good examples that I think I will not forget this time."
"Fabrice was wonderful to teach me what I needed by reviewing with me what I already knew. The lesson was challenging yet given at a pace that was not over
