I thoroughly enjoyed my French lessons with Ainna. I feel her focus on vocabulary and prononciation is helpful in building a foundation for learning
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 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.
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
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.
Madame Viale teaches me French outside of school and she is the best French teacher I've ever had! She is so kind and accessible. With each lesson I don't feel like I'm learning, but I am always surprised at how much I have improved with my French since she has been teaching me! She is a great teacher. Merci Madame Viale!
Isabel has taught both of my girls Spanish and French since they were toddlers (over 10 years!). She still teaches them and they understand everything in both languages and have fantastic accents. She is perfectly bilingual in both languages due to her Spanish family and upbringing in Paris. She is unfailingly cheerful, loving, energetic, and positive. We love her so much that she is like a part of our family. My kids talk about wanting to live in Europe and they always get an easy A+ in language class in tough private schools. She is amazing.
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 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.
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.
Fluent City classes are geared towards learning, but we also make sure that the process is super fun. Our energetic and approachable teachers create a relaxed environment for you to take on the challenge of learning a language alongside like-minded people. There is a huge difference between knowing how to speak a language and knowing how to teach it, and we pride ourselves on hiring teachers who are ridiculously good at what they do: explaining how the language works and getting you to speak it immediately. Our beginner classes are usually taught by non-native speakersÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ¦on purpose! They are often Americans who learned the language themselves as adults. Our teachers understand, firsthand, everything that goes into learning a language because they were once students of the language themselves, which informs the very way they explain how it works to you. Native speakers or teachers with native-level fluency usually teach our higher-level classes.
I am a French doctor in anthropology and sociology and have a master in French for foreigners. I have been teaching French for eight years to different levels and public. I want to make lessons efficient but fun and interesting at the same time.
I teach French the best that no one can teach. I teach from scratch so that everything flows easily and you learn.
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'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 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.
Bonjour! I'm a French man living in NYC and I help people of all ages learning and perfecting their French. Whether you want to learn from scratch, prepare a test or perfect your prononciation, I can help you reach your goals efficiently thanks to my unique approach. I am fluent in three languages and I'm learning a forth one, which helps me providing you with the best angle to learn a language. I like to teach "real-life" French, the language that is actually spoken in France nowadays, rather than the one taught in outdated books, no matter how formal/informal, you'll learn everything you need to become fluent. I have taught French for more than a decade, mostly to American grad student in France, then in the U.S. to different students in a private school. I have a literature high school degree and 2 bachelors in music (I'm a professional musician). Don't hesitate to contact me for more information, I would love to get to know you and help you reach your goals with a little touch of "je ne sais quoi". A bientôt!
I am Burkinabe and Francophone. I came to the United States for my master's, but before that I must learn English well. I would like to give French lessons to everyone who loves language and that! I also allow myself to make friends but mainly to improve my English.
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.
