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!

Dr.V is an incredible French teacher. I really enjoy his teaching technique. I am confident that if I continue my lessons (2x a week) for an indefinite amount of time I will be fluent in reading, writing and conversation. I recommend Dr.V without reservation. I can't wait for my next lesson!!! Merci!!!

    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.

    Monique has been working with my language program since February 2018! She had great reviews prior to working with me and I can’t say anything negative about her. She’s very professional and creative. She not missed any of our classes! Couldn’t ask for a better French instructor

    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.


    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 am a native French speaker. I'm a young female with great personality, lots of patience and love to teach. I'd love to help people learn French. It's such a beautiful language but not easy to learn. You need someone who's perfectly bilingual like me.


    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 tutor French. French is my native language. I mainly concentrate on conversational French and adapt the lessons to the student's interests and needs.


    Bonjour! I'm a French man living in NYC and I help people of all ages learning and perfecting their French.

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 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 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.


    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.


    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.
