Being able to effectively communicate with others is the first step to building genuine relationships with them--whether casual, personal, or work relationships. My goal is to give my students the tools you need to communicate with others in English, so you can achieve your unique goals as a capable English speaker. I seek to genuinely listen to and learn from my students, not just teach. I aim to make your learning experience fun and joyful because learning a new language opens up new worlds and new possibilities and should be enjoyable!

The typical class length is 90 minutes. If that is too long for your busy lifestyle, please choose the mini class of 45 minutes. Connect with me today!

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.
Ryan
Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.

Le français facile et rigolo c'est ici ! I was born in Paris' suburbs (Nogent-Sur-Marne). French is my mother's tongue but it is not enough to be a good teacher. I got a degree in French literature in 2002 (added to English, German, and Russian). I am a patient teacher for all levels, and all ages. Also people say I am super fun to work with. Feel welcome to ask for help either for personal or business purpose. Le français est une langue qui a beaucoup de charme, le secret est juste de pratiquer ! C'est facile ! Commençons avec les basiques, puis étape par étape nous progresserons ensemble !

This was the first time we used TakeLessons website to find a tutor for my son. We were a bit hesitant about the quality of teachers we may find on the site. There were many tutors for Photoshop to choose from but we went ahead with JC. His description of attention to quality and ensure kids have fun while learning is what attracted us to his profile. I must say, he lived up to the description in his profile and our son enjoyed the manner in which he spoke and how he conducted the lessons. I would recommend him for Photoshop definitely and we will continue to work with JC as our time and his time permit. Excellent Photoshop tutor!

Marc has helped me develop my style and helped me implement my "voice" in what I am writing. He also offered several constructive suggestions that made my piece stronger as a whole.

Mr. Marc was an extremely enthusiastic instructor that made me excited about all of the material he taught me. He is very resourceful and uses a unique approach that I never had encountered from any other instructor. He is very kind and knowledgeable in many subject areas, and is an incredible musician. My playing improved tremendously under his instruction. I would HIGHLY recommend him to students of any age!

Connor has been teaching my son Mandarin to complement his lessons at high school for two years. He has been great at engaging him and helping him practice both speaking, reading and writing. This has given him the confidence to speak more Mandarin during class. Additionally, Connor has a great rapport with my son and is very patient, organised and thorough with his lessons. I highly recommend Connor as a teacher.
Wendy
Mr. Connor has been working with my children for four years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drums and guitar. Unlike other teachers we've had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporates games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interesting for young kids. My children adore Mr. Connor and are always looking forward to working with him every lesson.
Matt
Connor does a great job at making the learning experience fun. He breaks down the lessons well, which really helps with learning the material. I would highly recommend for anyone learning to play a new instrument!

My Spanish lessons are unique because I am currently maximizing my Spanish in Argentina. I have taken 8 years of Spanish. I am emersed by the country so not only will you be able to learn the language but culture as well. And, Argentina offers a different dialect of Spanish, the vos form. The students will be able to choose what form of Spanish they would like to learn; tú or vos form. The lessons will be easy to understand and flexible based off of what the student wants to learn.

Want to chat with filipino or filipina using their native dialect fluently? I am here to help. Conversational Tagalog is the best way to learn the language fast. Then from there you'll be able to write it as well.

"I picked Zach because he is from Paris and my husband and I just returned from a trip there. We want to go back next year with improved communication abilities. Zach will not only be able to teach us the language we want to know, but also give us tips about Paris and France in general from a native's point of view.
Zach started me out perfectly for my first French lesson. It was challenging enough but not overwhelming. I love that (for a part of it) he recorded me so I could hear what I sounded I sound like speaking French -very helpful!! He has given me just enough to work on between lessons and left me motivated for what's to come!"

Not only did she help us with speaking and understanding Italian, she gave us pointers on things to do before we went and while we were there to make the trip that much more pleasant!
