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.

I have been a student of French with Ingrid Rombaut for several years beginning at the beginner/intermediate level thru advanced. She is a very generous and knowledgeable teacher both in regard to language acquisition, literature and culture. I particularly value her knowledge of music and French popular song. I highly recommend her.

Christelle is by far the best French teacher I have ever had. She taught me 3 levels within 6 months and I am now able to understand, write and speak much better. Christelle is extremely passionate about teaching French and personalizes her classes for her students. She is different than a regular teacher who may only follow a book line by line which can make the learning process dry and boring. She concentrates on teaching the language in an easy to understand fashion as it is much easier to remember rules when they make sense. Her teaching is focused on the most important aspect of learning a language - getting you to listen and speak. She'll let you know what you need to concentrate on every week and will take you out of your comfort zone so you actually start speaking. Christelle does all of this in an environment where you look forward to your next class - her fun personality only adds to the great learning experience. I would recommend Christelle to anyone regardless of level trying to learn/improve their French.

My daughter is quite pleased she has Namita as her tutor in geometry. Namita is very patient and takes her time in explaining homework assignments to my daughter. Her sessions helped her catch up with lessons she did not understand before which made her and I very happy. I will definitely recommend Namita to my friends.

Jeffrey is a very accomplished scholar and talented lecturer and tutor. 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. His command of the language and his extensive knowledge of its use and its history give him a particularly nuanced approach to both writing and editing.

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

About

Bonjour à tous! My name is Quentin, and I'm a French native speaker with a Master's degree in Public Relations. I recently moved from France to San Francisco for an internship at a PR agency. I started teaching French two years ago during my exchange year at San Jose State University. Back then, I tutored middle school and college students, as well as professionals. I have lived in France for over 21 years, and I am completely bilingual. Adapting my courses to your level and expectations, I can help you improve your conversation, accent, grammar, vocabulary or even French culture and history. It is entirely up to you. I am available to help you improve your French all around San Francisco, on evenings or during the weekend. Please feel free to contact me, and we'll see what works best for your specific case!

About

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.
