About Said
Hi ,

I am a native French speaker teacher, I have a Bachelor's degree in French Law and 6 years of language teaching experience in USA. Teaching French is my current career, so this is what I do for living everyday with dedication, patience and endurance to make learning French for my students a fun journey.

I am so proud (as well as my director) of the number of emails and positive feedback I received from satisfied families who had their children live the experience of learning French as a second language with me. If you are a beginner or an intermediate student who wants to start learning and build a solid base to reach fluency quickly, feel free to hire me to enjoy learning and start speaking in a short time. my fun immersion method and my theme based curriculum are what you need to reach the advanced level of fluency. see you
in the other side!

Warmly!
Said

My son felt very comfortable with Saïd right from the start. Saïd is very warm and natural with his students. His level of French is exceptional and he motivates the children to try their best every day. I am happy with the French and other school/social skills that my child learned from Saïd and I highly recommend him.

About Eliska
I am an experienced ESL teacher, qualified interpreter and translator. I am a native Czech and new to the US. Studying interpreting and translation helped me to understand differences between the languages which I then applied when teaching my husband Czech.

During my classes, you will feel encouraged and motivated to learn the language. My students feel really comfortable with me and look forward to the next class. The language is not hard, when you make it fun!

Eliška is an outstanding teacher. She is always well-prepared. She tailors the instruction to my strengths and weaknesses, even adjusting the level as we work together during the class hour, so I assume she teaches each student in individually shaped lessons. And she makes each session interesting and practical! I highly recommend her.

About paqui
My name is Paqui. I am from Spain, I am a journalist and a Spanish instructor. My experience in both areas plus the fact that I was a student of a foreign language as well have given me a holistic view of what the students needs.

For the last 6 years I am teaching Spanish to diplomats , I am a learning consultant as well and I've been working developing a new curriculum.

I like the student to be the center of the learning process and by modeling the student is able to improve faster and easier. Thanks!

About Eirene
My name is Eirene and I love learning languages. I grew up in Canada and the U.S. and have traveled to over 20 countries. Whenever I have some free time, I love to listen to podcasts, chat with my native speaker friends and travel at every opportunity I get. This year, I was in Tanzania, where I studied Swahili for 2 months. Other than studying and teaching language, I also love cooking, drawing and taking walks around the city.

--

My teaching style is very much student-led, teacher-guided. As a teacher, I mold every class to complement my student's preferences and needs. We work on grammar and vocabulary through book materials and exercises but also engaging activities like movies and music.

As a non-native Spanish speaker (Spanish if my 4th language, after French), I hope I can shed light on how Spanish is structured, and how
it works--and also help you meet your Spanish goals, whether it be work, travel or personal.

Feel free to write to me as well with any questions you have. Looking forward to connecting. Chau!

Eirene is a patient and diligent teacher who helped transform my limited knowledge of Spanish--mainly from TV--into practical, everyday skills. She broke down concepts in digestible ways, often referencing French (my other language) so that I could better understand a certain topic or concept. What's more, she also always kept the focus on conversation, which I really appreciated, particularly since that's the area I want to work on most. In short, if you're looking for someone dependable, kind and always rooting for your success, you should look no further than Eirene.
