Ainna Manapat is a wonderful French tutor. In less than the length of one school quarter, she had helped me raise my grade. Her teaching methods are clear and concise; at the end of the lesson a lot of material has been covered and explained.

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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
