Private French Teacher

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.

About ENRICO

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.

"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.

French is my second language, but often feels as it if were the first, as I have speaking it for so many years on an everyday and professional basis. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). I edited a 240-page scholarly book, De La Case A La Villa (published 2014), and I gave private lessons.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo!

I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis; I taught teenagers and adults. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs.

My method is to provide grammar (very important in French), vocabulary, conversation, reading, and translation in every lesson, and show how important each component is to the whole. I am overjoyed when my students start conversing without need for translation - even if there are errors!

My graduate educational background is in architecture, followed by an MBA in finance. My mother tongue is English; but I learned French at the age of nine when I attended my first French school. I have a French high s

chool diploma (Baccalauréat) and architecture degree, and I am certified to grade French exams from A1 through C1 (university level). Currently I teach after-school, coordinate a museum visit program (en français) and manage a French exam center.
I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years, so I am fluent and am now also teaching. Learning languages was a necessity in my childhood. I love to learn, even if by adulthood, it is more difficult to become fluent in a new language. I think the fact of being a lifelong learner helps me better understand my students' needs.

As an avid reader since childhood, my spelling has always been excellent, and I worked as a proofreader. I look forward to helping my students reach their language goals.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private French Teacher

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).

"Tania has been working with me on my level. I have learned a lot and she has also refreshed my memory of what I had learned a few years back. Her classe
s are very practical. There is tons of conversation and grammar. I am able to apply what I learn right away. My comprehension has improved a lot as well. One of my favorite things is that she is a native speaker so I learn a more practical French with common day-to-day expressions, with many things I won't get from book. Very recommended!"
