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!
Translating; teaching, French
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
Very clear and concise. Asks questions to make sure the French party understands the full translation - rather than a literal translation.
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
Madame Viale teaches me French outside of school and she is the best French teacher I've ever had! She is so kind and accessible. With each lesson I don't feel like I'm learning, but I am always surprised at how much I have improved with my French since she has been teaching me! She is a great teacher. Merci Madame Viale!
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.
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!
Isabelle is a very nice person and she has a very easy way about herself. Its a bit early to say how effective my one on one tutoring experience will be, though as a dependable, supportive, informative tutor, I would rate Isabelle very good.

Fluent City classes are geared towards learning, but we also make sure that the process is super fun. Our energetic and approachable teachers create a relaxed environment for you to take on the challenge of learning a language alongside like-minded people. There is a huge difference between knowing how to speak a language and knowing how to teach it, and we pride ourselves on hiring teachers who are ridiculously good at what they do: explaining how the language works and getting you to speak it immediately. Our beginner classes are usually taught by non-native speakersÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ¦on purpose! They are often Americans who learned the language themselves as adults. Our teachers understand, firsthand, everything that goes into learning a language because they were once students of the language themselves, which informs the very way they explain how it works to you. Native speakers or teachers with native-level fluency usually teach our higher-level classes.
I am very passionate about teaching French, and I will do my best so that you can learn as much as possible from the French lessons I will be providing.
