Beginner French!- I might be a little bit younger then usually but I have known french for several years. Lesson with me will be filled with fun but you will learn a whole new language within it. Oh wait! Maybe I should also introduce myself, my name is Emma-Jane Scullion! You will learn beginner french words, how to start a conversation, and how to use simple everyday words to communicate! This is my first time teaching but I think it will go pretty well, because I have quite a bit of experience with french! As they say in french aurevoir! (It means bye)!

Thanks for the great lesson

Finding a good French teacher is hard. I’ve had many over the years. Olivier is completely bilingual and brings a breadth of knowledge, patience, engagement, and personalization to his teaching that makes him, hands down, the best tutor I’ve ever had. Don’t be intimidated by his qualifications—he is extremely personable. If you take learning French seriously, you want Olivier.
Priscilla
Olivier has been tutoring me for the past year. He is always very clear in his explanations and very patient. Olivier is also knowledgeable about the French culture. I walk out of every lesson with more confidence about my French and the progress that I'm making. Definitely a 5-star tutor. I highly recommend Olivier as a French tutor.

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

My teaching method is based on a dialogue with the student and written exercises but nothing strict. I intend to help the student by giving him strong skills with the vocabulary, the pronunciation, the understanding.
Those lessons are to all ages and levels.

My approach of each topic is very open, I'm aiming to support the student on his project, in a relaxed atmosphere. Then, I can base my lessons according to the needs— Meaning help for homework, translation, professional requirements, or simply to teach the basics of french, etc. I'ld be very flexible according to what the student is requiring, and would support him until the goal is reached.

"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."

"Nicola is an excellent instructor! Our classes were not only fun and engaging, but offered hands-on practice in really practical topics and vocabulary. She brings the wisdom and knowledge of having spent time in day-to-day situations and offers that in her lessons. It makes classes not only interesting but incredibly useful. I appreciated that classes focused heavily on speaking and listening while also learning new vocabulary and reviewing grammar and tenses. Plus, not only is Nicola an excellent teacher, she's also an all-around kind, fun person to get to know and be around."
