Elisabeth has just the right balance in what I hoped for in a teacher. She challenges me just enough for me to feel frustrated but like I'm growing, and she affirms my work just enough for me to feel good about myself and confident. She also has a great balance between a friendly energy and getting down to work.

Individual tutoring based on the specific needs of each student.

About Ellen

Hi, In addition to tutoring, I have been teaching French and other subjects in public schools for many years. I am certified to teach French in both New York and New Jersey schools. I have studied in France and visited many times. I enjoy working with individual students in the tutoring environment. We always discuss what exactly what the areas are in which you need help. French to me is much more than vocabulary and grammar. It is the essence of the cultures of the countries where it is spoken. I try to convey something of that fascinating culture as well.

Ruth W. Brooklyn, NY

With a Master's degree in French, I've taught students of all levels for over ten years. In the first few lessons, you'll start to speak in short sentences, and as time goes on, you'll be able to speak in more detail about your life and the world. I use a combination of textbooks, handouts, and personal conversations to help my students progress.

“My experience with Ruth as a French teacher as been very rewarding: she is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher, and she is able to adapt her questions to each student's level. Try her, you won't be disappointed."

Ruth is a terrific French teacher and I recommend her without hesitation. I am particularly impressed with her broad knowledge of the language and her clear pronunciation, which, without sacrificing authenticity, is music to the ears of intermediate and advanced students. She has an experienced teacher's ability to see any serious deficits her students may have without confusing them with plebian missteps that are, in the end, of little consequence. I can only lament that I didn't have a teacher as good as Ruth when I was learning the language as a teenager.

Ruth has been tutoring me in French for 4 months now. I met her at a French meet up where she impressed me with her expertise, organizational and teaching skills, and reliability.. Our weekly meeting includes French conversation, grammar, reading and writing, and I try to do homework each week, which she assigns. She has geared the lessons accurately to my level of understanding and offered very helpful educational materials. Our meetings are fun and enjoyable, and it's clear to me that my French is improving steadily. I highly recommend her!

I took French in middle school, high school, and undergrad. However, my skills have taken off more than ever since I took charge of learning it on my own, through individual teachers and use of my spare time. Are you ready to do the same?

I can provide materials, or we can use yours.
