I've been teaching French since 2014 and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral production. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Elsa is awesome. She is a native speaker and shares the nuances of French as it is actually spoken and not just as it is taught. She is friendly and upbeat and an absolute pleasure to spend time with. I can't recommend her enough!
Inna
Elsa has been great with teaching both of my daughters. She is very energetic and has a lot of positive approaches with both a 5 and a 8 year old. She caters the lessons to each level and skill set. My kids always look forward to her classes.
Erika
I can say without hesitation that Elsa is the most professional and pleasant teacher that I have ever worked with. She is very customer service oriented, efficient, and flexible if you have a specific goal in mind.

My teenage daughter looks forward to the class and always ends the session with a smile on her face. She has fun with Elsa while she is learning. Win win!

I highly recommend French Encore!

A great start to Latin. My daughter was very engaged and enjoyed the session tremendously. She came in reluctantly but is now looking forward to her next lesson all thanks to how Janet engaged her and broke down complex concepts into understandable bites.

I been teaching English and French for 10 years now. I began learning in high school so I understand the challenges English speakers and others face learning the language. I studied English and French at Vanderbilt University in the USA. I have lived and worked in France for a total of 2.5 years. My students have ranged from 5 to 60 years of age. I have been able to learn what techniques help with pronunciation and as memory aids for those learning later in life. I still speak French on a daily basis. I have also visited other French speaking countries and can help learners embrace their aspirations and navigate new places.

"Philiippe was a great French instructor. I enjoyed that he focused the class on learning the fundamentals of conjugating verbs and using the appropriate tenses. The format of the class encouraged a lot of interaction with other students which allowed us to practice what we learned. The most important part was that Philippe made learning fun. I enjoyed the class."

""Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher."
