Ainna is a very sensitive teacher who caters each lesson to your needs. I was very hesitant and shy about taking lessons and after just the first one that feeling completely vanished. She completely changed my preconceived notions about taking lessons! Each one was serious and challenging but we also laughed and had fun. At the end of each lesson I found myself each time so happy that I had just had one. The words and phrases I learned have stuck with me. She will use books, visual props around your room and personalize each lesson for you. She also switches between different themes during each lesson so that you never get bored. I took lessons with her in my home and each and every time she came over I very much looked forward to it, especially after speaking to colleagues of mine who were also taking French lessons but never described them as 'fun' and 'exciting' like I described mine. I highly, highly recommend Ainna.
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.
Guy was very committed to getting me where I needed to be with French. He taught to my learning style and was always available to answer questions and also spent time sending me supplemental materials. He was always on time and very reliable. Definitely recommend!
Very clear and concise. Asks questions to make sure the French party understands the full translation - rather than a literal translation.
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
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 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.
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 teach French lesson at an affordable price. I'm patient with beginner learners. In a short time, I can help students master the language fast and correctly. I'm available only after my work hours and during my days off.
I'm a native French instructor to a group of 20 students during my 6 months of stay in China. I'm passionate and outgoing.
Born and raised in Naples, Italy, I finished my college education here in the US while teaching beginning Italian 101-102 to undergraduate students, mostly majoring in voice or history/archaeology.
Need a brush up on your French before a trip? Need to review for an exam and improve your grades? Study with a native speaker who has a Ph.D. from Columbia University and a long teaching experience at all levels. Emphasis is given on listening comprehension, speaking and writing skills and most recent textbooks and videos are used.

I provide private or group lessons from the comfort of your home, beginner to academic levels. I accept children (as early as 2.5 years old) and adult students. I also provide test preparation and course support. Learn with a native French speaker. References are provided upon request.
I am a native French speaker. I'm a young female with great personality, lots of patience and love to teach. I'd love to help people learn French. It's such a beautiful language but not easy to learn. You need someone who's perfectly bilingual like me.
I tutor French. French is my native language. I mainly concentrate on conversational French and adapt the lessons to the student's interests and needs.
I am from Spain, and I have some years of experience teaching. I also speak currently French that I learned after living for 15 years in Belgium, where I took some courses to learn this language and to teach it.
I am very familiar with the concerns parents may have, with the apprehensions students may feel, and with the workload schools give their students. Having been born in Paris and later educated at the Lycée Francais de New York, French is my mother tongue. I continued my studies at the Dwight Anglo-American International School and later graduated from NYU with a dual degree in History and Economics. My familiarity with the International Baccalaureate (IB) and its rigorous curriculum is sure to help you or your child become a successful student. During my years at the Dwight School, I obtained a Bilingual French-English International Diploma. I have years of teaching experience. Although strong grammar is critical to the way I teach, I also emphasize the importance of French popular culture, politics and arts. I also teach SAT II French. You can contact me through email.
