Chris is very knowledgeable in teaching French. She is patient, accommodating, well organized and goes at a pace that is comfortable with the student. She comes down to the level of the student and steadily brings it up. We were pleasantly surprised with the progress our child has made. A 5 of 5 star recommendation.

As someone who is very busy and didn't have a large window to add French lessons into my life, Sophie was there to work around my time schedule and needs and was quick to assess where my previous language skills could be foundational to learning French. With only two hour-long lessons a week, I was able to start reading novels after one year. After two years, I was able to start having business negotiations with my clients in France who were incredibly impressed with my progress. After three years, I was going to the movies by myself in Paris, understanding full dialogues with the use of subtitles. Sophie is an absolute professional with a unique understanding of the skills and lessons that suite the individual learner. I can't recommend her highly enough for anyone interested in learning French, at any level, and for any purpose. I started for business reasons, but at this point I'm entranced by the beauty of the culture and keeping up with friends I've made as a result of my new access into France.

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.

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.

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.

I hired Veronique to have a conversation with me in French and she's great: easy and fun to talk with, she subtly gave me hints and suggestions on vocabulary and errors, and flexible & patient scheduling & location to meet. I hope to keep meeting with her for some time to sharpen up my French before a trip there later this year.

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.

      Chloé has been tutoring French to my 6 and 10-year old kids for about a month. She’s methodical, patient, and works great with kids. I really like her teaching style and would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn or improve their French.

      About

      I have been teaching Italian for more than ten years, both privately and at the college level. I love to give my students the empowering experience of learning a new language and to share with them my knowledge of my beloved country. My lessons focus both on grammar and culture, and students of all ages and different levels of language proficiency are welcome. For my teaching, I use both textbooks and current multimedia materials. I also provide translation services (English into Italian and some Italian into English as well) and interpretation services.

      About

      I provide French translation and interpreting services and Russian translations and interpreting services. I do transcriptions and tutoring.

      About

      Hello students, I am a native fluent French speaker. I am willing to teach the language to serious students who have the ambition to learn. I have taught French for 2 years in Africa, and I just moved to America to start my French career here. Best regards.

      About

      I can give lessons of reading, writing, and talking in Spanish, mostly for beginners, but I'm fluent; I can also help other levels because I lived most of my life in Colombia. The price per hour is $17, but I can fix it depending on where it is and on how many hours.

      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.

      About
