I believe everyone is capable of achieving any goal they want or need. Some may take more hours of studying while others seem to absorb and understand instantly any topics. However, with dedication, work, patience and good organization skills, everyone can obtain the same results: Success, good grades, better concentration and even pleasure of studying.

I think my tutoring style is directly linked to my personal experiences from elementary schools until my Bachelor at UCLA. I started my student career as a rather poor and undisciplined student to finally become Valedictorian of my UCLA class in 1998. I then pursued with a Master of Fine Arts which I completed in record times for this tedious Animation master.

Otherwise, I am a mother of 3 year old twins, I was born and raised in Paris, France and came to the US at 18 years old. I lived in New york city and Los Angeles. I also spent 3 years in Guatemala. ( I also speak Spanish... not enough to be a Spanish tutor but enough for communicating with Spanish speaking families and students, if needed).

I am outgoing, social, and I love to travel. My passion is Sailing. I have crossed the Atlantic 3 times so far, and I also love the circus. Yes! the circus: Juggling, Trapeze etc...

Film

I graduated as Valedictorian from UCLA film and Television BA, as well as an MFA in Animation from UCLA as well.

I worked as an editor and cinematographer for 7 years with academy award nominee William G.

I produced, directed and edited numerous fiction films, documentaries and animation/claymation/sfx films.

I have worked in every aspect of the movie, TV and documentary film business. I have been a TA in multiple classes: Video/Remote TV productions, Editing, After Effects Class. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Animation and I want really really would love to tutor film students. It is my specialty. I also was a sailing instructors for children 6 to 18 years old, handicapped adults and foster kids for 7 years.

Thank you,

French

I am a french citizen married to a Californian man, who also speaks French fluently. I moved to the USA in 1995 to start my studies. I lived in NYC for 3 years and then moved to LA, more precisely UCLA, where I obtained my bachelors in Film (Valedictorian) and an MFA in Animation. I also lived in Guatemala for 3 years and I just love to discover and learn new cultures! I have a more liberal approach to the French language, which is loaded with grammar rules and irregulars. If grammar makes you screech, I will be the perfect tutor for you. Now, If you cannot live without your grammar rule, then I will be honest and tell you to find a more conventional French tutor!

Study Skills

I went from being a lousy student in junior high school to becoming Valedictorian for my BA at UCLA. When I finally realized how easy studying could be, my grade just kept getting better and better. Organization, lists, breaking down homework and lessons into friendly information and positive reinforcement are the key to an efficient and happier student.

I worked as a film (16mm) editor when that still existed and believe me, without organization editing a feature film would have been impossible. I also produce many TV projects with remote TV Trucks and crews of 20. Organization, lists and keeping the focus on what's most important is essential for the success of the project and the crews' happiness!

Video Production

I graduated as Valedictorian from UCLA with a film and Television BA, as well as an MFA in Animation from UCLA.

Worked as an editor and cinematographer for 7 years with academy award nominee William Gazecki.

Produced, directed and edited numerous fiction films, TV studio productions and remote TV productions, documentaries and animation/claymation/sfx films.

Engaging and Effective Teacher — Ariane spent 1 and 1/2 hours preparing my family for our trip to Paris in June. She was thoroughly engaging and especially helpful with native colloquialisms. She reviewed basics with my 9 and 12 year olds and gave me a boost of confidence with her feedback and immersive French conversations. She was quite effective with my girls who were apprehensive about speaking French. They completely enjoyed ...
