Ellen Y.

Cranbury, NJ

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.

Ruth is a wonderful instructor. She's knowledgeable, well-prepared and patient. I only wish I was still living in the area so I could continue to take lessons from her I wholeheartedly recommend Ruth as a French instructor for students, regardless of level.

“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.

Adam R.

Brooklyn, NY

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.

Baptiste A.

New York, NY

Teaching French has become second nature to Baptiste, because he is passionate about helping others to articulate their vision. It is rewarding to learn about the subject matters that move you, as zealous conversations generally ensue.

About Baptiste

I am a native French tutor who graduated as a French as a second language teacher in 2007. My services have been appreciated in European and American cities where I worked in schools, language centers and privately. I meet all levels of proficiency with contemporary pedagogics that elicit a genuine eagerness to learn French. The desire to communicate is paramount to learning a language, therefore the methods I use are centered around building report. Unless you are looking for task-specific tutoring, you will most likely follow a standard curriculum and learn the skills to pass DELF exams or other certifications of French-language abilities. However, your study will revolve around subject matters that you've shown interest for, and I always provide fresh and engaging material to work ...
