I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

I have ten years experience tutoring Spanish, French, and English as a Second Language. I minored in French and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris as well as in Geneva, Switzerland. I tailor the curriculum to the student depending on their goals in learning French as well as particular countries or cultures they are most interested in. Whether you are learning for fun, plan to take a vacation, or wish to live in a French speaking country, I can help you reach your goals.

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. I always expect more from my students because I have observed and documented all general traits and phases of language development during my classes and yes, you can always do better than you think you can.
2. My classes go beyond standard delivery of grammar and vocabulary. I bring my students to understanding of how a particular language works as a communication tool and how it can be enhanced.
3. Progress, feeling of accomplishment and remarkable results are just as important and desirable for me as for you therefore I do my best as a teacher for helping you to do your best as a student which should not be a problem if you have made the decision: "I will be proficient in this language!"

I Taught French within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and implemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high ...

I am from Montreal, Canada and French is my first language. I have been teaching for 12 years, albeit in another subject matter, computer animation. I have a great deal of experience designing customized course plans and lessons. I can teach you French conversation, vocabulary, grammar, and writing according to your personal interests.

Whether it is for traveling, conversation, or help with writing your essay in French class, I would love to help you learn and master my native tongue.

The first lesson was outstanding! Eugenia is an excellent teacher with a real ability to help the student learn the material and also understand the context of the material being taught, in other words the practical use of the language in Romania. I highly recommend Eugenia if you are looking to get serious about learning Romanian, she will make the learning very enjoyable!
