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.
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!
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

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 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.
I had her as a tutor, and she really helped me understand the math I was having trouble with. I saw her every week for 3 months. She explained what was really happening, which helped because I used to forget the order of steps a lot.
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!
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!
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.
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 a college student majoring in biology and minoring in piano performance. Because of my interest in both of these subjects, I have taken great pride in both my academics and musical endeavors, and I wish to help you accomplish the same goal.
I'm a fluent French speaking customer service representative. I was a tutor in French grammar back in Haiti.
Most teachers, like me, are professional musicians who supplement their income by giving lessons. However: I genuinely love teaching and would happily do it even if I didn't need the money. My students can see the passion and excitement I have for my work, and that does wonders in their ability to learn and develop. It is one thing to play an instrument well, but it is another thing entirely to know how to teach it well.

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.

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 am a personal music instructor for piano and guitar. I can also teach in a group setting at my studio or at other venues. I have experience in teaching young children, teens and adults. Learning music can significantly improve a child's life skills. Take advantage of this summer and learn how to play an instrument.
