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.

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.

Grew up in America (born in Taiwan) for over 13 years and native speaker of both English and Mandardin Chinese.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Languages are best learned by using them - we don't learn to talk in our native tongue by reading a book! From beginning vocabulary to sentence construction, use your language as much as you can! Whatever your use for French, or if you're learning it for school requirements, let me know how I can help!

Bonjour! I am a very passionate about teaching French Language to other people. I started teaching One-on-One private and group lessons with ACE/FLEX program, then I became a certified ACTFL instructor which opened more opportunities to me as a Foreign Language Instructor. I have been teaching for about 8 years now. I have worked with different Language Learning Centers such as BERLITZ, DICTYON, the Washington Language Center, ICLS, ICA and I am currently affiliated with the Diplomatic Language Services (DLS). Ready and willing to teach all kind of students at any level, the French language skills needed either for your job assignment or just to learn a Foreign language.
My classes are always tailored to meet the student's needs and objectives. I am at your service! à bientôt !

About Aicha

I am very passionate about French Language and culture. I have enjoyed learning French myself back home since I was 5 years old. I think that French is such a beautiful and rich language. There is always something new you can learn in French and is not as difficult Foreign language to learn as some

Aïcha is such a fabulous teacher! Learning a language is stressful and Aïcha takes the stress completely out of it, which further enables growth. Her positive attitude, reassurance and nonjudgemental approach make it very easy to connect with her on any subject (yes in French) but she will also push your limits in areas where you need a little nudge. I look forward to studying with her again to get up to the next level. Look no further - You found your teacher!
Paola
I highly recommend this fellow teacher and personal friend who has a native prophiciency in French. You would only get excellent results!
Philippe F.
As a French teacher myself I had multiple times the opportunity to work closely with Aicha on numerous French teaching assignments. In particular I am very impressed by her ability to tailor her lesson plans to the student's needs, and specific profile. She establishes a close partnership with the student and work closely with the student to reach the desired end goal. Highly dedicated, perseverant, and personable, Aicha is certainly the tutor/instructor you need to improve your French language knowledge. I highly recommend her! For sure, you will not be disappointed.

I got into Korean through knowing Kpop and all the previous teachers were very structured like school teaching but Chan taught me in quick and fun modern way.

Definitely a 10/10!"
