I am an American who has been taking French lessons from Ainna once per week for nearly two years. I didn’t 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 I’ve 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. Ainna’s 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 Ainna’s 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. That’s the result of Ainna’s step-by-step accent training and insistence on repetition until its right. She makes the lessons fun and she is extremely encouraging. It’s been very exciting to get a little bit better every week. I plan to continue with Ainna’s 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 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.

Very clear and concise. Asks questions to make sure the French party understands the full translation - rather than a literal translation.

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.

My daughter was trying hard, but really struggling with AP French at her competitive Manhattan school. She was also resistant to the idea of outside help, at first, but Seamus' approach put her at ease. With his help, she caught up with her class and developed the skills/confidence to reach her AP score goals. Because of his results, I decided to use him to finally brush up on my own rusty Spanish, something I've known for a while would help with my career, and it wasn't nearly a hard as I'd feared. I wish someone like him had been around back when I was learning the first time. Highly recommended.

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.

About

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.
