great professional service very responsive and love kids enjoying Spanish lessons
Fantastic combination of academic, conversational and cultural-contextual teaching of the French language. Highly recommend!!
I had a fantastic experience with IDESLI. I logged on to Thumbtack one morning to find a Spanish tutor. I needed help brushing up on my speaking skills for a new job. Literally within an hour, I was corresponding with IDESLI, and they were pairing me with a classes package and a program that was a perfect fit for my needs. I started classes the following day! IDESLI was professional, friendly, and did I mention well-located? Right in the heart of the Financial District. I worked with Carolina, who knew that the most important thing for me was to talk a lot in Spanish, so we had some great conversations, and she helped me throughout with learning lingo, colloquial terms, etc. She also gave me some more formal homework on remembering verb conjugation and vocabulary that was specifically relevant to my field. I hope to continue participating in the IDESLI community by attending some of their upcoming Spanish movie nights. :)
I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.
Ingrid is a patient and knowledgeable instructor. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to excel in the French language.
I have been amazed at Christelle's natural ability to teach, and her enthusiasm for each of her students' personal journey into the French language! She was immediately intent on assessing my level, what parts of the language came naturally to me vs. needed more guidance, and is always armed with so many tools to customize my program to my interest and need (in my case, conversational proficiency, preparing for travel). I have appreciated Christelle's personability and patience - she swooped in and removed all pressure or criticism from my process and simply made learning fun! I not only recommend her services, I also look forward to continuing lessons even after my trip, purely for the joy of the language! Thank you so much!
I wholeheartedly recommend Laurence. She's a superb French teacher. She tailors her lessons to her students' educational needs, has a wonderful teaching style and is very patient. Laurence makes learning fun by incorporating different types of media and topics into her lessons. I enjoy learning about the French while learning French. If you're looking for a French tutor, contact Laurence et en avant.
Roslyn Raney has worked for the One-to-One Tutoring Service since 2004. She has tutored many students in French, German, and Spanish for our service very successfully. Adults who want to learn a language for travel purposes have been particularly impressed with her ability to teach them what they need to know to be able to converse successfully in the country they are traveling to. She also has tutored numerous high school students as well. I have received many positive comments from clients who worked with Roslyn. She came to our service having taught languages at the college level for a number of years at San Jose State and College of San Mateo.

He is attentive to students' needs, genuinely concerned about their development, and invests and unusual level of effort in producing his lessons and lectures. He has a broad range of experience to offer in all types of writing, from professional documents to academic essays.

Yuki is an excellent teacher. I hired Yuki 7 months ago for Japanese lessons and have been studying with her ever since. Not only have I learned more than I expected, I have had fun while doing so. Yuki's ability to answer questions, correct mistakes and push me just enough beyond my comfort zone, all while offering encouragement and instilling confidence, creates an engaging, productive and enjoyable learning environment. In addition to her skill in teaching the language, Yuki shares a wealth of knowledge regarding Japanese culture and current events, regularly weaving this into our lessons. Many aspects of Japanese culture are reflected in how the Japanese language is used. Yuki's ability to blend language learning with cultural insight reinforces my understanding of both and provides a practical and realistic context for my developing language skills. I find this extremely valuable, especially when compared to other language learning experiences that rely primarily on exercises that are contrived and don't reflect how native speakers actually converse. One hallmark of an excellent teacher is their ability to understand and adapt to a student's needs and learning style. Yuki does this extremely well. During our very first lesson, she specifically asked what my motivation and goals are, what experience I've had with the language (if any) and how I like to learn. This was comforting and encouraging, since clearly she wanted to teach me in a way that worked well for me, not simply based on her preferred style of teaching or a "one size fits all" approach. It took me a while to realize that she was continuing to observe and adapt to my learning style months after that first meeting. As an example, I mentioned during a lesson that I was encouraged because I could often understand much of what Yuki would say in Japanese. She responded that she had purposely been speaking at full speed, as native speakers do, because she felt that I had progressed to the point where that was just enough of a challenge to help me learn without being too difficult to be discouraging. I can't remember how we had progressed to that point, but Yuki was clearly keeping track of my progress, where I was getting comfortable and where I was still challenged, and had adapted our lessons over time to what I needed at that moment. I highly recommend Yuki as a language teacher. She cares about her students and applies all of her knowledge and teaching skill toward helping them reach their individual goals. She creates a very supportive and comfortable environment, which is invaluable when learning a language. Her ability to integrate cultural insight and current events adds a depth to her language lessons that is not easy to find and makes her lessons more relevant, practical and engaging. Perhaps most telling of all, I have learned more than I expected and I have had a lot of fun doing it.
Carine is excellent. She listened to my goal for our sessions (oral production) and has made it comfortable for me to converse with her on topics of mutual interest. She corrects when appropriate and provides materials to spark conversation. Reliable and patient. I highly recommend her

I offer a joyful learning of French. I am a French instructor who loves my work, and I have taught in the high school and college levels for over 25 years. I am credentialed by the State of California to teach in the community college system, and I have an M.A. in French from UC Berkeley. I emphasize a solid grounding in the workings of the French language, and I aim to bring my students to meaningful self-expression. I've had a lot of success with students who are shy or feel that they don't learn languages easily. Having spoken French since the age of 13, and having lived and studied in France, I speak with a native accent. (As a matter of fact, I particularly enjoy teaching students how to pronounce authentically, and often when they go to France afterwards, the French are a bit floored!) The name of my school is "French with Joy", and in fact, my students feel really at ease, enjoy the classes, and laugh a lot.
I work independently. I teach all levels. I do credential teaching. I have 25 years of experience. I specialize in speech and language pathology.
