Zach is an excellent teacher! He provides both a great mix of listening, speaking and practical learning activities! I have learned so much in my classes with Zach, and he paces the class just right so you feel challenged but not overwhelmed.

Ashley helped me pass my high school French midterms! She made the material super easy to understand (even the impossibly difficult conjugations), and gave me a ton of confidence in myself.
Laurie
Ashley was such a great help to me in my pursuit of acting! Her thoughtful yet kind approach made me feel at ease, and she taught me many helpful tools to improve my performance. I highly recommend you study with Ashley!

I first started learning French when I was in high school and was amazed at how many similarities it shared with Spanish (which both descend from Latin) which helped me to pick up things a lot faster. I have since lived in the "French House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters where residents are required to speak their target language while in their respective apartments. I also took a third-year advanced grammar French class while at college while living in the French House. French is just an awesome language to learn!

Adam
I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

Private French Teacher

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.

How do you talk about the past of the past? French tutor Carol Beth L. shares this lesson on conjugating French verbs in le passé antérieur...

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. …
