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.
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 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.
Monique is such a pleasure! We look forward to her lesson each week.
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.
I love Marion's French lessons! She is very attentive and prepared for every class. She also took my suggestion of my preferable way of learning a new language and catered every class to my needs. She is fun and open-minded. I highly recommend her as your French teacher!
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!
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 studied with Veronique both in a small conversation class and via Skype to learn and improve upon my French skills. She is very encouraging, correcting me when necessary but not making me feel self-conscious which I feel is important when learning a foreign language. We follow a text book but she is flexible taking our studies and conversation on tangents at times. I
What a great experience! Claudine has helped me with French so much! I needed to do a French immersion for work and she made me feel comfortable and taught me so much!
My son is taking his SATs this week and Heun was able to make an expedited lesson plan for him. Heun was patient and knows the content very well. My son is getting noticeably better and gaining confidence

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 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.
