Solange is amazing as an instructor. As a native speaker she understands text book French as well as slang. She provides several options for ways to express a thought. She is easy to talk to and time passes so quickly. Definitely the best French teach I have had and I have had many.

From intermediate to advanced learners, my lessons offer immersion in authentic English, not boring textbook material.

I have more than 10 years of experience helping students of all backgrounds learn English skills they can apply to real life situations: conversation with friends, business English, customer service English, email and text English, social media slang ... and whatever YOU want to learn. I tailor lessons to your needs.

Lessons are fun, drawing from current entertainment and news sources to reinforce your skills with the topics that native speakers are talking about now.

Due to my enthusiasm for Foreign languages, I am fluent in French and can read Russian, German, and Spanish. French was my minor and chemistry was my major. I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society based on my achievements in the fields of chemistry and French. I have also enhanced my fluency in French by traveling abroad, including residing in France at the University of Poitiers as well as traveling abroad to Paris, Brussels, and Calais. I look forward to spreading my enthusiasm for foreign languages to others.

I studied four levels of American Sign Language, and learned about the language and deaf culture, at Temple University. ASL is a beautiful language and I am excited to get you started on learning it! In these lessons, we will learn finger-spelling and ASL signs to carry out conversations. Lessons will be conversationally-based, and I will suggest assignments and activities in between lessons that will help you retain information and progress.

Learning a language is not that difficult as it might seem. You just need to have some reason why you need this language, have some motivation for that, and make it your daily routine which brings you some joy and peace.
You can do this journey alone. It might take you more time, but you will get there where you want to be for sure if you continue and remember your "why".
If you choose to make it together with a teacher, the journey might grow into something more creative and fast in terms of your goals.
In my lessons, a student is the one who sets the rhythm as each person has her/his own aptitudes, preferences, and needs and I, as a teacher, have to follow the student tutoring in a very individual way which usually comes up in the first few lessons.
Honestly, I can't promise miracles. But at the same time, integrating my experience and expertise in learning foreign languages, together with the student we will make our lessons efficient, interesting, friendly, and useful.
Please ...

Amazing teacher, was able to cover so much ground on the first day alone. She will definitely get you where you need to go and is very nice and helpful.
Anastassiya
I appreciated the lessons with Irina. She helped me a lot with my English.

She managed to find the closest way for me to start speaking. I'd say her superpower is good knowledge of the subject together with the good awareness of how human mind works. It makes the learning highly effective.

Irina, thank you!
Stephen
Only language teacher, who has lot of patience to address your queries, appreciate it. She can also touch upon various literary works which would ignite further interest in language learning. Much recommended.

Introduction to French Grammar: How to Ask a Question

In French, like in English, you can often make a statement into a question just by raising your voice at the end. However, that's not the only way the French might pose a question, and as you learn French you're likely to come across many other variations. It's a good idea to get all the other forms of interrogative sentence under your belt as well. 1. Question words. Just like English, French question words can be used to start off a sentence you want to turn into a question. These words take …
