I really enjoyed the class with him. He's such an intelligent and qualified teacher and helped me a lot even with a pronunciations of confusing words. His explanations were super easy to understand and follow. I highly recommend him to someone who needs help with learning and practicing English from beginner to advanced level.
With Stef - you couldn't ask for more from a French lesson. She was very helpful in understanding the perimeters of our group and helping us feel more comfortable with learning the language. Each lesson was well thought out and education. I highly recommended Stef when selecting a French language Instructor!
Anne Cecile is a fantastic teacher. We have been working together since 2 weeks and I already feel that my conversational and writing abilities have improved. She is not only a native french tutor but also a skilled, experienced and passionate teacher. She is also very responsive, emails were replied within 2 to 5 hours. I really enjoy working with Anne Cecile and feel motivated to learn french more than ever as the lessons were informative and fun ! She also customizes the lessons depending on your goals and the areas in which you want to focus more. One more interesting point about Anne Cecile is her flexible schedule. She is available most of the time which made scheduling the lessons very easy. I would highly recommend Anne Cecile to anyone who wants to improve his french!
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.
Patricia has given English lessons to our 3 children, 2 hours a day, for 2 months in May and June 2015 in France. As French native speakers, the objective was to make them all feel at ease in English (spoken and written) in order to join an international English speaking school in September. Camille, 13 years old, had already some school knowledge of English, and Sarah, 11 years old, had very few knowledge of English. Despite of that, the 2 girls decided to take the lessons together and Patricia adapted very well to the level of each girl, making them feel as taking nearly private lessons, sharing perfectly her time between the 2 girls. She was able to use the strengths and weaknesses of each girl to build a team spirit to achieve each of them goal : good communication skills for interpersonal relations and a good written level to adapt to academic learnings. Cyrille, 7 years old, didn't have any knowledge of English and the objective was to get him used to listen and understand basic English. Again Patricia succeeded in this goal perfectly. Cyrille was very scared to start his first lesson and did not want to go, but after all he did not want the first lesson and all the others to stop ! Patricia was always extremely patient, enthusiastic, positive, constructive and fun all the time ! The children did theoretical exercices, as well as some practical ones, such as cooking or shopping, and of course lots of conversation. They all loved the lessons with her. Today, after one month of schooling in English, we can confirm that Patricias lessons were very helpful and allow our children to succeed in getting well-adapted to their new environment and working methods. Therefore, I highly recommend Patricia as a tutor as she is highly competent, efficient, and able to adapt to all type of levels and ages, from young boy to teenager.
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.

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 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.
