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!
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 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.

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!
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
Yekatrina Ozherelyeva I would with highest respect judge all the below areas with excellence. Work Quality Professionalism Responsiveness Value Punctuality We have known Yekaterina for many years and she has been very helpful in many ways with tutoring our daughter Anastasia. Respectfully yours, Deborah Blaisdell
Monique is such a pleasure! We look forward to her lesson each week.
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.
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 very experienced piano teacher with many years of experience. I teach all ages from beginners to advanced, and I am an expert in teaching young beginners. I give free trial lesson to learn more, and see if I'm the best teacher for your child.
taking care of Children is most of the wonderful work in this world
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.
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.
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.
