French is the second most widely learnt foreign language in the world. Spoken in France – consistently ranked the most popular overseas destination for people in Britain – and in many other countries including Canada, Switzerland, it is easy to see why knowledge of French is such an asset.

Whether you want to take French classes to travel or to immerse yourself in its rich culture of fine food and wine, haute couture and great authors, our French courses will equip you with the language you need to get by, have a conversation or become fully proficient

About Tony

If you want to be the best, learn from the best. Talent, skill, confidence- priceless!. Choosing the right voice coach or singing teacher can be a difficult task, as there are so many coaches and teachers out there. My approach is unique in a sense that I do not believe in a "One size fits all"

Ivana B.
I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

you could tell that he not only was a good and patient teacher but that he was interested in well being and was exceptional in his creative approach to teaching! most definitely a 5 star teacher.

Hello, my name is Jared Perez-DeBusk and I am Deaf. I am proud to share that American Sign Language is my very first language, not English. I have a Deaf sister and my family knows sign language. I always enjoy teaching people sign language. I discovered my passion to teaching, which led me to study public speaking and how to interact with the audience and eventually getting a bachelor’s degree in Communication in Performance Studies from University of South Florida. Few years later, I got accepted to Master’s in Sign Language Education program at Gallaudet University and graduated in 2018. I am looking forward to share my rich experience in sign language and Deaf culture with you.

In my year of teaching ESL I have found a lot of fun ways to transmit a language across cultures. My main goal is that you will be able to communicate, not just conjugate things correctly. We will start with oral comprehension and responses but quickly move on to reading and writing. I'll have worksheets, listening exercise, games and more to help you learn and grow. Lessons can be taught in French or English.
