Salut! As a native French speaker I have been teaching students of all age ranges for years.
I am an enthusiastic and fun teacher who customizes my lessons based on your goals, learning style and preferences.

Christina is patient, encouraging, and a great tutor . I have improved a lot since starting my classes with her as far as understanding the German language (esp. with the hearing and speaking parts). She gave me helpful tools to speed up my learning and she helped me find the right study techniques for better comprehension of the language.
Lina H.
I loved working with Christina! I already had an ear for German growing up with a native speaker and she helped me understand a lot of the grammar I was missing in such a short period of time! As I practice on my own it becomes easier to follow patterns that she pointed out to me.
Stephanie
It was fantastic! I love her multi-faceted approach. :)

What makes French lesson unique is because it is a beautiful and complex language. Its pronunciation and sound are amazing. My students will learn the vocabulary, verbs, adjectif, adverb, and grammar combined together to help them understand and build their own French sentences with confidence. I learned French from High School for more than 12 years. I can speak it, read it and write it. I will teach with empathy meaning that I will use my strategies into my students shoes to help them understand and succeed.

I give Gina a 5 star because it doesn't have a 10. She is awesome, smart, fun, and caring. I take Spanish and makes so much easier because she also speaks fluent Portuguese (my native language), and she can explain the difference between both language. I highly recommend Gina :)

Philippe tailored our learning to not be from a book but used role-playing exercises to use French in a more realistic, fun, yet non-threatening manner.

I hope to have him again as an instructor and highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn French."
