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 love to learn new languages. So I decided to take French as my second language for my school, and quickly realized that I needed help. After going through 3 tutors, I found Miss. Raguthu. When I met her, she was an absolute delight. She sat down with me, explained and answered each and every question I had. She is knowledgeable and has a lot of patience. I was able to pick up my French class grades, from a 65 to a 98. My parents and my Teacher were extremely happy with my progress. I would highly recommend Miss. Meena to any one of my friends and family members. If you want to improve your grade or want to have a high grade, I would definitely choose Miss. Meena.
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!
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.
My twin boys were having difficulty in their middle-school French Class. Claudia Marx was recommended to me very highly by a friend. Upon meeting her, I liked her warm nature, experience and maturity right away, and I knew that she would be a good 'fit' for my kids, who can be challenging to teach when they are frustrated with a school subject. Ms. Marx obviously is well-equipped to teach this subject, given her excellent Bio. She loves France (French Cooking) and the French language, and her credits certainly prove that. She also has a good sense of humor and a love of kids as well. These qualities drew my sons to her immediately. Even their fear and shyness of attempting conversational French seemed to disappear because of her patience and praising nature. Lots of teachers are well versed in verbs and vocabulary, but Claudia Marx goes the extra mile - she established trust by being such an accepting and non-judgmental tutor. In conclusion, my kids responded quickly and fully to Ms Marx, and their grades have improved considerably! The best part of all is that they both now cannot wait until we can all travel to France! An extra bonus for which we certainly can thank Claudia Marx. Outstanding teacher with a warm personality, so well-suited to my boys - and I would guess, all children.
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!
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
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 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.
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!
