My daughter has taken a few lessons with Carl, and she is very happy with his style of teaching. I hired Carl with the need to prepare my daughter for the SAT exam. Carl was extremely flexible in scheduling the tutoring sessions around my daughters schedule. I have enjoyed listening to Carl tutor my daughter greatly. He has a great sense of humor, and has a special method in teaching, which can just about help anyone in finding the answer and/or struggles that one is having in learning the English language properly. Each time that Carl arrives for the sessions, he is prepared and ready to tutor without wasting any time. Carl is a very knowledgeable and an experienced tutor, and I believe he has the best method in preparing for the SAT. As a bonus, he is very nice, and reasonably priced considering how much he is helping my daughter to prepare for her first life-changing exam. I would definitely use his services again, and would highly recommend him to anyone.
Stef is warm, puts me at ease immediately and a knowledgeable teacher. She is a true asset to anyone who wants to learn the french language.
Anne-Cecile is a fantastic French language tutor. She has a wonderful way of teaching concepts, grammar, and pronunciation. Anne-Cecile is a native French speaker, so she can teach real life conversational french. I highly recommend her!
My family is truly happy with my son home Spanish lessons. Nuria is an amazing teacher. My son loves his lessons and has fun. He is excited to learn and can't wait for his next lesson. You won't be disappointed.
Can't say enough about Roxanne. She used a variety of tools and methods that really helped me learn and kept me engaged, including conservations, books, movies, and fun writing assignments. Her professionalism is only matched by her patience and good nature. Spending time learning French with Roxanne became the highlight of my week. You will not be disappointed, and you will not not learn!
I really enjoy learning French with Peggy, I learn about the french culture as well. She is patient and she is a good coach and gives homework! Je parle Français de mieux en mieux!
I took private French instruction from Fouzia for 4 years. This started after I concluded 2 years in small classes at Alliance Francaise from beginner to intermediate. Fouzia is a superb French teacher for numerous reasons including high education, sophisticated cosmopolitan culture level, enthusiasm, uncanny ability to adjust her methods to fit the student's special needs and interests, and more. For example, I need French to relate to my 2 young grandsons in Paris, as well as for adults I encounter there. I recommend without reserve.
I am in 6th grade, and I have been taking private German lessons from Frau Christine for 1 or 2 years now. I have to say that my German has improved tremendously just because of her. She teaches through culture and day to day conversations, making learning German comfortable. She, as a person, is someone who listens, understands and talks to you. At this moment, I am reading a chapter book, "Das Doppelte Lottchen" with Frau Christine. I also work in several workbooks when she assigns it. She is a very, very organized educator, and doesn't load and overwhelm students with the language, like other German American Schools have done to me. For the first time, I have been feeling like I will be fluent in German. During lessons with Frau Christine, I forget that I am in America. She magically leads you into a world where the grammar comes naturally. She has made me WANT to learn German. I recommend this amazing teacher for any young student, especially if they already know how to speak a little German.
My daughter started taking private lessons from Patricia a month ago and we can already see a great improvement in her language skills. Patricia has excellent teaching techniques and the student is immersed in the French language from the very beginning. She uses different teaching methods including short movies and books (in French only); which make the class more dynamic and entertaining for young students. We are very pleased with Patricia and the results obtained thus far.
I always enjoy our French lessons!
Alex went above and beyond to help me succeed in my French class. I didn't know how to put together sentences before him, let alone speak with the proper accent. He was so patient with me and made me a better French writer. I stepped away from a super American accent to a far more French one. He did this through several different pronunciation exercises and even communicated with me in full French at the end of our lessons and would challenge me to try to speak full French back. I felt like I was living in Paris! He is so sweet and even provided me with insights about being a true parisienne for when I study abroad there or work there in the future. Learning French is my passion, and he made that passion come alive. I am truly so grateful to him, and now we have hour long phone calls once a week in French to ensure that I don't lose what I have learned from him. He is detail oriented, as well as an exceptional teacher, and even more interesting person. He has lived all around the world, and always has fascinating stories to tell! I would 100000% recommend him as a tutor. You will not be disappointed!
I highly recommend Cecile. Learning French with her is a pleasure.
Great skills to teach. Friendly way to communicate. Perfect sence of humor. Strongly recommended. Rouben Sekoyan, Paralegal.
Anne-Margret uses such creative approaches to language learning! Since I'm passionate about music, she found that I responded best to learning French through song. She's brilliant, multilingual, and has degrees in linguistics. Her specialty is finding connections between different languages to make learning a new language as simple as possible for each student by capitalizing on what her pupils already know. I highly recommend her!

I am experienced in teaching 7- to 15-year-old students. I am teaching Arabic and French using modern methods that will make it easy and interesting for students.
I teach French language as a second language and I have a very large experience in teaching for almost 22 years.
Hi! My name is Marion. I am French. I moved to LA for my acting career. I am fluent in English and I, myself, am still working on reducing my French accent; so I know how it works and how to learn that, step by step. I have done some design studies in school and some artistic ones (first, in applied arts in high school before my design degree, then acting, TV hosting and coaching). I have been a model for 10 years and traveled the world. I think communication is so important, and I love the idea of learning a new language and the culture, thoughts and habits that go with. I have always been very good in writing. I write and read a lot. I never do any spelling mistakes in French, and I am really good at it. I just love to see someone talk better and better in my language every day. It is motivating and a very good thing to me. I can help you achieve your goal. Marion
I lived in Europe all my life, and I perfectly speak English, French, German and Luxembourgish. Furthermore, I learned them in a short period of time.
I dictate lessons in different languages, such as French, English and Spanish. The classes take place whether at my students' place or at mine with previous acknowledgement. I am very flexible and have respect to schedules. I'm also very interested in being the person who guides you to improve your learning.
I have experience teaching in three continents and have traveled to Central and South America and Mexico. I've lived in Europe for six years and studied culinary arts, Spanish humanities and taught ESL in Madrid and Salamanca, Spain. I have training in Lindamood-Bell, functional, notational, proficiency, direct, inductive (immersion, natural and discovery/self-actualization) methods as well as TPR and child/adolescent behavior and humanistic psychology. I am certified in VA (where Common Core really started in the 80s) to teach Spanish K-12. I enjoy writing and am presently enrolled in a course with Troon Harrison and the Children's Literary Institute in CT to write for children and young adults. I have sold photographs to Highlights Magazine related to travel to Hispanic countries and natural science/anthropology. I have taught graduate students at business schools, numerous Big Eight companies, university students and all levels of Spanish and English for K -12. I read, write, speak and understand fluent Castellano as well as South and Central American, Puerto Rican, Cuban and Mexican dialects/accents. My future aspirations include translation, publication/journalism (in either Spanish or English) and bilingual education.
