Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.
Rachel G.
Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

Bonjour a tous!

Dear French Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows everyone to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons always begin with a dialogue, no matter your level. From how you are feeling, to what you did during the week, to the weather of your best friend's gossip, we warm up with a conversation I type out as we go.

The rest of the lesson is then spent reviewing previous work and introducing new material in a variety of ways, constantly setting a rule in practice. Poems, songs or texts, depending on your interest, keep the content alive and interesting.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

"Claudia is such an excellent instructor, I feel very fortunate to learn from her. She works at my pace, communicates really well and provides detailed instructions in helping me understand every aspect of the language. It's only been 2 months and not only can I read Spanish well but I can also make basic conversation when I go places. I'm very pleased I highly recommend her!"

"Grace has been a phenomenal instructor for my 9th grade daughter. Working twice a week with her online, my daughter is enjoying her lessons and truly learning! From the start Grace made sure she was on the same page with my daughters school as far as cirriculum, expectations and milestones to be met. Although we were hesitant at first thinking online instruction would feel “robotic” like, Grace is anything but! My daughter says she is warm and friendly. They interact as sny student & teacher would exchanging pleasantries about their days. Grace humanizes the experience which is so important when taking lessons online. We are very pleased with Grace and my daughter is always looking forward to her next lesson!!"

Erol develops his own syllabus, analyzing my pronunciation with software, which helps a lot in visualizing what needs to improve. All lessons are recorded and can be downloaded for later review. He is quite flexible when I requested late night sessions. He is punctual and caring."

Studying French Verbs: Le Futur Antérieur

If you've studied French verbs for a while, you probably know about le présent, le passé composé, l'imparfait, et le futur. You may also know something about reflexive verbs and verbs of motion, and their particularities in the passé composé. You may even be familiar with le passé simple. What happens, though, when you want to describe an action that hasn't happened yet, but that will be complete before a particular action or time in the future? In English, we use the future perfect …
