My B.A. in French from Vassar College, combined with my M.A. in French and certification in teaching young students from Columbia Teacher's College, as well as my extensive experience living in Paris! I bring the cultural and linguistic together in one easy to learn package!
Students achieve great results with my unique method, because we begin speaking in full sentences from the very first lesson. Students see grades and test scores go up, and most of all gain confidence speaking French!

I've also worked as a French tutor at Berklee College of Music, and I am familiar with different French textbooks we could use. If you prefer the lesson to be conversation driven, that works for me too!

Private French Teacher

My teaching method is based on a dialogue with the student and written exercises but nothing strict. I intend to help the student by giving him strong skills with the vocabulary, the pronunciation, the understanding.
Those lessons are to all ages and levels.

My approach of each topic is very open, I'm aiming to support the student on his project, in a relaxed atmosphere. Then, I can base my lessons according to the needs— Meaning help for homework, translation, professional requirements, or simply to teach the basics of french, etc. I'ld be very flexible according to what the student is requiring, and would support him until the goal is reached.

About Chloé

I'm a french film producer, and have been giving private lesson to foreign students wishing to learn french in Paris and Berlin the last couple of years. I also animated summer camp to introduce adults as kids to the art of photography, have a master degree in Literature, Linguistic and Film Studie

Our family is so impressed with how much she has learned & how adorable her French accent is now.

"Elsa is a really fun, interesting and really patient teacher. An hour lesson just flys by and I’ve learned so much from her. She is really good at figuring out what level I am at in French and then pushing me a litttle to build on what I know and help me understand the proper way to word something and use past, present and future tense verbs.
Because she’s French, her accent is perfect, but she also speaks perfect English.
I’m so excited to return to France and to use all that I’ve learned from her!"

"I've been working on my French weekly with Bene for the past couple months. It's been a lovely experience so far. Her classes have really helped me discover the French language and culture in a new way.

Bene is a very patient, creative, and dedicated teacher, and she's done an amazing job tailoring classes around my personal language goals. Every class, we work on expanding my vocabulary, improving conversational fluency and reading comprehension, with a bit of grammar practice built it as well.

I'd highly recommend Bene as a French tutor!"
