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!
She is the best teacher I have ever had , my conversational spanish improved a lot in the short period I studied with her. That's because she knew how to target my weak points. Thank you very y espero verte pronto
Zoe is an amazing teacher! Her love of the French language, her sensibility to her students' needs, and her sense of humor all make the lessons fun and enjoyable. She will custom-tailor the lessons depending on what the students require and their level of proficiency. She is a real pleasure to be with and even has devised some very cool games to help with the learning. I warmly recommend her!

Marccia has been a phenomenal French instructor. Not only has she adapted the class to fit my specific learning style and language interests but the passion and energy she brings to each and every session has kept me more motivated and enthusiatic about French than I could have ever been on my own. Marccia has helped to provide me with the most solid and broad base of French possible in a short amount of time. Her passion and energy, along with her creativity and genuine desire for her students to learn have made Marccia one of the best and most versital langauge teachers I have ever worked with.
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!
Julie is a very responsible teacher. My son enjoys the lessons with her and learn a lot from her. I highly recommend her.
Monique is such a pleasure! We look forward to her lesson each week.
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.
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!
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!
From an early age, my parents stimulated my foreign language interest with Spanish language learning records and a French dictionary. Then in high school I took as many foreign language courses as possible in order to initiate my knowledge of Latin, Spanish, and French. My best foreign language learning experience in college was 2 years of residence in a French dorm, La Maison Francaise, where French became my second language. Then Spanish became my third language after my summer in Barcelona. When I graduated, I taught both languages in Pennsylvania public schools and received my permanent certification in both subjects. Since then I have also studied Italian, Modern Greek, Danish, and German. As a foreign language student now, I know the fear of responding incorrectly to a teacher's/tutor's questions, and in my tutoring I strive for an open atmosphere in which students feel free to ask questions to increase their comprehension and enjoyment of speaking, reading, writing and listening to Spanish or French.
i am a new French student with hopes of traveling toParis. I was immediately drawn to call Vittoria because of the fun picture on her profile. We have had a few lessons together where I am very comfortable even when I have no idea what she is saying!! Anyone who is looking for some help honing their french language skills should give her a call.
Because I am a fun and original person. And This shows when I am tutoring.
I've always had an affinity and passion for languages and teaching. I am fluent in French (native) and in Spanish and have over 8 years of experience in providing language training and tutoring to children and adults alike in both languages in language schools, K-12 and university settings and corporations. Whether you want to learn a new language or brush up on your French/Spanish, you'd like to introduce your children to a foreign language or maybe they need help in their language class, it would be my joy to help you meet your goals in your target language.
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.
Having taught for 15 years to various group ages, I feel confident in dealing with new teaching challenges.
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.
