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!
My son is taking his SATs this week and Heun was able to make an expedited lesson plan for him. Heun was patient and knows the content very well. My son is getting noticeably better and gaining confidence
Very knowledgeable, excellent approach to teaching French that will allow you to retain what you've learned... I would definitely recommend Meena to others.
Translating; teaching, French
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!
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
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.
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
Jackie is a wonderful French teacher. She has been teaching my 7yr old son for over a year now and he has made incredible progress and continues to do so. She is highly dedicated and has a wonderful personality making each class fun and interesting for my son. I have had to change his class time several times due to other activities and she has always been accommodating and understanding. At the end of each class, she goes over everything with myself or my husband to explain what was covered that day. My son has become a confident french speaker now, something he was shy and hesitant to try before. I would very highly recommend Jackie for french lessons.
Very clear and concise. Asks questions to make sure the French party understands the full translation - rather than a literal translation.
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.
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.
Mara is a talented and insightful teacher. During the time I worked with her, my tone and intonation improved considerably. She expanded my musical horizons and gave me essential tools I continue to use in my singing.
