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.

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
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 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.
Very clear and concise. Asks questions to make sure the French party understands the full translation - rather than a literal translation.
I have taken private Italian lessons from Barbara for several years. She has a thorough command of her subject and is able to personalize it to my abilities.Both enthusiastic and patient.
I found Robyn to be a pleasure to work with. She's clearly knowledgeable about French language and culture and was able to help me prepare for my trip to Paris. I am looking forward to working with her more to polish my French pronunciation and language skills even after my trip.
I've been working with Frances since January and can't believe how much I've already learned. I've always wanted to learn french, but was nervous to take the plunge, and didn't want to do a group class. She really focuses on conversation, which was important for me too, and I went to Paris in May and couldn't believe that I could actually speak with people!
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.
Veronique is an amazing teacher and person. My daughter loves working with her, learning about French culture and language. We feel

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.
We provide super results and super fun! My love for language and my love for people has made a huge difference in the lives of those I've touched over the past 30 years. I started teaching in High School. I teach both executives, most recently "chez", L'Oreal and the teen set, most recently from my comfortable home classroom in New Providence, NJ. I've also started skyping people in, going global! Please be in touch if you'd like to discuss your goals and how we may partner to move you into a more fluent future.
I am very fluent in French and am available to help beginner- to intermediate-level students improve their speaking and writing skills at their convenience.
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.
