I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

My 9 year old son has had French lessons once a week with Elsa for the last 3 years both in person and currently online. From the start it was clear, Elsa is a highly skilled and accredited teacher for children. Each lesson starts with a song which kick starts my son’s engagement. The hour-long class has a fun pace to it and is well structured to balance learning & fun. Elsa is also very kind and good humored which makes my son relish his classes. Watching him gain confidence in his French language skills has been so rewarding. I am extremely grateful to have found such an exceptional French tutor as Elsa.

Let me start by saying, Elsa is magnifique! We met Elsa through a trusted Francophone friend.

We created a virtual pod of three girls in second grade and couldn't be happier. Elsa is warm, patient and incredibly engaging. She makes learning French fun through songs, visuals, writing and dance. Yes dance! Teaching online is not easy but Elsa is a natural. I can't recommend her more.
Nicole
Elsa is an amazing, attentive and supportive teacher!! I’m working through so much with her and I know I’m improving. I highly recommend her as an instructor!

Private French Teacher

Hello, I'm French and I love my country and I want you to pass on my knowledge about France. I moved in the USA 5 years ago and I meet a lot of American people who wanted to improve their French or leant French language. I know the difficulties to learn another language. Because of my experience to learn English I decided to help people to learn French. It's important to simplify the french grammar and to show us how you can be more comfortable in French. Everyday I enjoy teaching French with my students. I love their accent and I'm so proud of them.

Living in France for 7 years now and completing my masters in teaching French as a second and foreign language at l'Université de Lyon 2, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. I've been teaching French for 3 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture and language! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in French phonetics so that you will be able to pronounce everything correctly.

I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I pull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using primarily in instruction are: Latitudes, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and Supermax (for kids). I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

I love all aspects of the French language, but accent and pronunciation are my favorite. Through tackling each word or sound with different approaches, from tongue placement to cognate breakdowns, I'll make sure to find a method that works for you. Whether you need a teacher, pronunciation help, or just a few phrases for fun, I am happy to help!

Sue D.
I had limited time (and money) to work on my speaking voice. My goal was to make it more pleasant to hear, both for myself and for others. Laura did a great job identifying what I needed to improve, and helping me to make needed adjustments quickly. She even went the extra mile to provide me with some "take away tools" that I can use going forward. I highly recommend Laura. As a teacher, she's fun, knowledgeable, and effective!
Sue D.
Laura is taking me at a comfortable pace as I learn new skills, and is making sure I have the tools in my toolbox to improve. I am impressed at how she can pick up on what I need to improve on through a video conference as opposed to being in my actual physical presence. Go Laura!
Caroline B.
Laura's Italian is impeccable. She is so gifted with the language that you would think she is a native speaker. Her talents are many and her energy is infectious. Cannot recommend her enough!
