Beatrice was great. I contacted her regarding french lessons and she exceeded my expectations. The lesson was extremely helpful right from the start. We sat down and outlined the areas I wanted to work on and where I needed improvement on. I relayed to Beatrice that I wanted to further my conversational skills due to my frequent traveling to France. She challenged me to conduct the rest of our lesson in french which i really appreciated. We then eased into pronunciations and sentence phrasing. Beatrice is extremely nice and helpful when I was stuck on a particular issue. The whole lesson was uniquely structured around my needs and skill level and explained in a way I could understand. I have tried many french teachers before but none were as helpful and as nice as Beatrice. Highly recommended!
I am an American who has been taking French lessons from Ainna once per week for nearly two years. I didnt know any French at all until I met my now girlfriend who was born and raised in France. I decided to take up lessons to learn how to speak with her family and Ive made huge strides in the past 2 years. I now have a great framework of the language and can understand and speak in basic conversations. Ainnas teaching method is very effective she combines formal grammar and vocabulary training that has given me the ability to both write and speak properly. In addition, the lessons are very heavily focused on accent training. I have been told by French only speakers in France that I have a very good accent and that can be attributed to Ainnas teaching she has the unique ability to teach me how to hear, identify and create the sounds that it takes to speak French correctly. Words that I found nearly impossible to say 2 years ago now come out easily. Thats the result of Ainnas step-by-step accent training and insistence on repetition until its right. She makes the lessons fun and she is extremely encouraging. Its been very exciting to get a little bit better every week. I plan to continue with Ainnas services indefinitely.
Romina is very professional, patient, and effective. She is thorough and creative in explaining difficult concepts and is able to make the content interesting and tangible. As a native speaker she has an extreme knowledge of the Spanish language and a proficient command of its grammar and vocabulary. She listens to your needs and tailors the session to meet your goals. Romina arrives prepared and takes control of the lesson while ensuring a positive and productive experience. She's patient and has great sense of humor. She's truly a phenomenal teacher!
I have been a student of Zoe's for 3 years. I speak freely with her, not in a self conscious way, not afraid to make mistakes. She is always very present, quick to correct and her patience is immense. She is highly creative, extremely well-read in both French and English classics as well as contemporary literature. She recommends films and books and challenges me with puzzles, games and she directs me to other French related curriculum that one can find on the internet. She designs her own practice materials with taste and with her own drawings, as she is an accomplish artist as well. Plus--she has great French style and a great sense of humor.

I contacted Claudia on behalf of my 16 year old daughter, who was struggling with French in school. Claudia was very warm, friendly, and kind. She made my daughter comfortable within minutes. Her skills at French and as a teacher were outstanding. She was able to teach my daughter an approach to understanding what she was struggling with in school, and my daughter's grades started to go up. Claudia has been a terrific find, and I strongly recommend her without reservation.
Paul was an excellent Spanish tutor for myself and my husband as we prepared for a trip to Spain. He's patient and very sweet. We highly recommend him!
I have taken private Italian lessons from Barbara for several years. She has a thorough command of her subject and is able to personalize it to my abilities.Both enthusiastic and patient.
Yekatrina Ozherelyeva I would with highest respect judge all the below areas with excellence. Work Quality Professionalism Responsiveness Value Punctuality We have known Yekaterina for many years and she has been very helpful in many ways with tutoring our daughter Anastasia. Respectfully yours, Deborah Blaisdell
I found Robyn to be a pleasure to work with. She's clearly knowledgeable about French language and culture and was able to help me prepare for my trip to Paris. I am looking forward to working with her more to polish my French pronunciation and language skills even after my trip.
Larry has taught 2 of my Mandarin classes so far. He has been punctual to all of the classes. The children are receptive to him and were able to grasp the activities and lessons in the class
I love the Italian language and culture and realized my speaking abilities from my university studies were rustier than I thought during a recent trip to Italy this past summer. Upon my return to the States, I immediately sought private tutoring and I could not be more satisfied in finding Mariateresa. I've seen vast improvement in my comprehension and speaking since I started taking lessons with her. The first couple months were focused on fundamentals and book work but now each lesson begins with about 30 mins of conversation (in Italian of course) before diving into books. I cannot recommend Mariateresa enough regardless of your comprehension level because not only does she challenge me every week to improve my skill but the time spent with her is very enjoyable and something I look forward to every week.
Great person to work with. Very punctual and patient. Would highly recommend him for any level of french instruction.
Karen is an excellent teacher. She guides her students through clear and focused exercises so that you really feel like you're getting the most out of your time. She has extensive travel and language learning experience from multiple areas of the world and I appreciated the way she incorporated useful cultural information into the language lesson. She is kind and patient so that you feel immediately at ease. I highly recommend Karen to anyone seeking to expand their language skills. She has a gift!
I've been working with Frances since January and can't believe how much I've already learned. I've always wanted to learn french, but was nervous to take the plunge, and didn't want to do a group class. She really focuses on conversation, which was important for me too, and I went to Paris in May and couldn't believe that I could actually speak with people!
Mara is a talented and insightful teacher. During the time I worked with her, my tone and intonation improved considerably. She expanded my musical horizons and gave me essential tools I continue to use in my singing.
I am native from France. I worked in different countries for the last 5 years, and it made me realize how important it is to speak another language! I am also studying to be an FLE teacher (French as a foreign language).
I will make you speak French in three months. Practice conjugation, grammar, read French book and do communication for your pronunciation between French and English.

I started to love music at a very young age. I got involved in chorus and guitar, piano, acting, and singing.
