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 is a great tutor. If you plan to have a good accent or if you just start learning French, you should definitely go for her. She is such a easy going person but also strict with my pronunciations. She is very patient and has beautiful hand writing. I love her a lot and highly recommend her!!
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 always enjoy our French lessons!
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!
Nuria Fortier was my Spanish teacher for fall 2014 through the International Language School for Children and Adults. I am an adult, beginner level spanish language student with some previous beginner coursework. Our Saturday morning one-hour classes are held at Pitzer College and ran from September through December into January. I am very impressed with Nuria's language instruction. She meets the students where he/she is in their learning, yet also helps you to challenge yourself (for example speaking as much as possible in Spanish during lesson). She stresses the importance of grammar and verb conjugation structures within conversational Spanish lesson. She constructs lessons so that we come into contact with verbs and then we address the conjugation. She recommended two very good books for beginner level that we use during the lesson, and also introduces fun story reading (at children's level which is actually very good for beginner adult learner). Nuria is very professional and reliable, and encouraging for an adult language learner! Nothing negative to report. Nuria has also created a local Spanish speaking group of current and former students who meet to practice Spanish and I am looking forward to joining this group. Thank you Nuria! I recommend ILSCA and Nuria Fortier for Spanish language. Her Children's programs are also very well attended.
I had 52 amazing French lessons with Eliane. She is kind, patient, and an expert teacher. I started as an absolute newbie and in a year I become an avid French music listener, being able to understand the lyrics. Additionally, as a native French tutor, Eliane taught me how to speak French with a correct rhythm and intonation. I strongly recommend Eliane to everyone who wants to learn French.Elle est magnifique!
As a beginner in learning French, Pierre was everything I could have hoped for in a tutor. He excels in patience, expertise, and consistently keeping me on my toes with exercises and textbook materials in order to push me forward. Pierre was always on time to our sessions and never hesitated to stay over an hour to make sure I understood all of the concepts presented to me. I hope Pierre tutors in other languages because I wouldn't hesitate to sign up with him again! ...right after I master French of course!" Thank you so much for your help. -Farah Saleh
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!
My company gives tours on electric bicycles. I had a large group coming from France. I hired Patricia to ride along and translate my information and stories into French. She was wonderful!! She made a special trip in advance to meet us and make sure she knew our location and to learn exactly what would be expected of her, even though I had already hired her by phone. On the day of our ride she was a gem. Very helpful. Patricia is friendly and fun and not at all shy about speaking to a group. She had no problem understanding my English. She is the kind of person who can see what needs to be done and does it. She was very helpful in translating instructions during training. She was perfect during the tour in the translation of stories into French. She helped a person who was having a problem with his bicycle and happily traded bicycles. The French tourists simply loved her and so did I. Patricia made the day extra special for our French visitors and made them feel comfortable. She was more than a translator, she was a team player. Tres magnifique! Merci Patricia, Barb Wittels Owner & Tour Manager Pedal...or Not Electric bike tours
Our daughter loved her lesson with Philippe, who is able to transmit his love and high expertise in tap dance to her. Looking forward to many more sessions with him!
Joyee Lin of Thinque has been nothing short of amazing. Professional with results to show. My daughter started working with Joyee a couple of months ago. Within six lessons, my daughter's composite ACT score went from a 28 prior to working with Joyee to a 32. Amazingly, her science score went from a 25 to a 32. Those numbers are the end result of Joyee's professional approach to teaching. During the lesson, Joyee utilizes a number of methods to present the material. It must be said that my daughter took his instruction seriously and worked hard on the material which was provided to her. The result was a good example of team work in which my daughter could receive, in addition to immediate instruction, quick review and understanding after working through the material. Joyee makes it easy to work around a busy lifestyle as he schedules and responds to correspondence promptly. We can't offer him enough praise. Joyee is offering an amazing service and we were so glad to have been referred to him.
If you are looking for a friendly, experienced and dedicated native French teacher: Miss Valerie will be the best choice to boost your French and confidence. I highly recommend her services. Two friends of mine did the same and did great with her. We are old students and want to support her as she is knew to Thumbtack. Have a blast learning French with her!
Me being a high school student taking AP classes is a difficult challenge. This was especially true when sophomore year came around when I took AP Biology and thought it would be easy. I was proven wrong when those first few grades came and AP was not looking good. I knew and my mom knew that we need help. That's when we found Fred. I can say that this experience truly helped me a lot. After a while I began to actually understand the material which was proven on how my AP grade improved. If someone were to ask me who would I recommend for tutoring then Fred is the person you are searching for. One thing you can sure expect is be preapered to work hard and give your all.
Physics lessons with Tran was very well done. I'm doing much better in my college class now, I'm going to call elite if I need more help. Thanks Tran
