A great start to Latin. My daughter was very engaged and enjoyed the session tremendously. She came in reluctantly but is now looking forward to her next lesson all thanks to how Janet engaged her and broke down complex concepts into understandable bites.

I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book.
I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.

About Robert

My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from Curacao, a beautiful island that once was part of The Netherlands and I started teaching in 1973. So far I have been teaching Spanish for 12 years. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute

I have received my DELF B2 and I am currently teaching French online to students. I can help you if you are a complete beginner or lower intermediate and looking to take lessons with a native English speaker to help understand the nuances of the French language. I lived in France for 6 months and Morocco for two years, so I have experience using this language.

Private French Teacher

I have been a professional French teacher for seven years. I have spent my undergraduate and graduate years studying French language and literature. I received my Master's degree in Modern French Literature from Jean Moulin University in Lyon, France. I can easily adapt my classes to the needs of each particular student; from explaining basic grammar lessons to my beginner students to challenging my more advanced students with diverse and complex conversation topics. My method of teaching, depending on the student, can involve using textbooks, videos, books, movies, and songs.

I was born and raised in Nice, France. I arrived in the United States in 2010, to study music in California. I just received my doctorate from the University of Miami.

I have taught French to foreign people in France since I was 18 years old (my mother has been doing that for over 30 years now) and since I arrived here to adults and students. I was also a French tutor during my Bachelor, Master and Doctorate programs.

Through private lessons I can help you get ready for exams and midterms, help you improve your french or just offer you to have a conversation with a native speaker. I love my culture and would love to share it with you if you are interested.

"Marie is an incredible teacher — I can't recommend her highly enough. As a beginner, I've learned more in a few weeks with Marie than months of self-taught app-based language. Her attention to pronunciation has given me confidence, and her helpful reminders and tips stay with me long after our lessons are over.

Not only is Marie excellent in communicating the basics of language, but she's also kind, patient, encouraging, and fun to work with. I look forward to our sessions each week!"

"I have been working with Roman for 6 months now. He is totally professional, so well organized and prepared for every lesson. I had taken French courses at the French Institute in Toronto and the quality I am getting from these online classes is way better, I am advancing way faster.
Of course learning any new language requires work outside of the lessons, Roman ensures enough material is given to study between my weekly lessons.
Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for dedicated instructor and expecting great results."

Joyeuse Fête des Pères: French Vocabulary for Father's Day

Whereas France and the U.S. celebrate Mother’s Day on different days in May, both countries celebrate Father’s Day on the same day every year: the third Sunday of June. Known in France as Fête des Pères, young children often show appreciation for their fathers by making crafty items, such as ties and bow ties made out of paper and cardboard picture frames made from cereal boxes. Older children, like those in the U.S., will often buy their father a gift that they know he'd love. …
