Susan is a fantastic and committed teacher.
Rachel
I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week.

Private French Teacher

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

Online French Teacher

Experienced professional public school teacher, specializing in beginner and intermediate students. I have worked primarily with teens and adults, but welcome all ages to join me in their learning adventure. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Language and Literature and a Master of Arts in Teaching.

One of the most important things about learning is knowing what your goals are, and I'm happy to help guide you to the proficiency you desire! My methods steer more towards comprehensible input, an approach that allows us to dive right into French, no matter the topic. Comprehensible input emphasizes learning grammar and vocabulary in context (as opposed to word lists and conjugation charts), which is much more effective in making the information stick. Let's get to know one another, tell stories, and fill our tool kit with essential skills and fun vocabulary we want to use.

Traditional tutoring is also available if you are a student who needs extra help with your assigned ...

Languages have always had an important role in my life. Speaking different languages such as French, my native language, but also Italian, English, Dutch and notions of German as well as more recently Spanish, has given me so many opportunities. It helped me experience so many beautiful moments with people, everywhere in the world.
I would like to share this passion with you and help you to learn French with fun, stress-free.
I will adapt the lessons to your goals, to your needs and to your wishes.
I am very flexible concerning the lessons' days or hours and I can be available at night or during the weekend if you are working during the day.

Vanda is amazing! My daughter is in 1st grade in a French Immersion school, and we hired her to assist with the transition to distance learning. She is a great resource, and provides my daughter with fun educational activities. Also, my daughter is having fun conversing with her in French, which is delightful to see.

Vanda has been one of the best French instructors I have had the pleasure of taking lessons with. Speaking English as my primary language, I found it difficult to understand the structure and syntax of French. Even so, where I most struggled was in pronouncing words. It was very difficult for me to speak clear enough so that nuanced distinctions could be heard in the words and phrases I attempted to pronounce. One she assessed where I struggled the most, Vanda patiently and diligently worked with me as to help me with my problems. I am proud to say that today I can have almost casual conversations with native French speakers and I know that I am understood because of the time Vanda dedicated to me. I would definitely recommend her if you want to learn French, or if you have a little bit of knowledge and are attempting to expand and refine your skills.

Helen was able to identify my level of understanding and then began building from there filling in areas I was missing as we progressed. The lessons have allowed me to improve my French grammar and my conversational French has significantly improved."

"M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication."

"My 8 year daughter is taking one-on-one French lessons with Ms Aliaksandra. She has taken 3 lessons so far and loving it. I was invited to observe her last lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher! We are glad to have found Ms Aliaksandra."
