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!

I’m an experienced French teacher/tutor committed to taking a hands-on approach to help students learn a new language through comprehensive immersion in the culture on a one-on-one teaching situation online to improve the student’s skills.
My goal is to assist in the joyful growth of the students and to inspire them to use their intellects as they create a meaningful and noble life, and to expand their perception of the larger world.

I hold a Master’s degree in Education with Honors from the Pace University of New York in Language, Meanings, Development for Global Perspectives. As an educator and French language and French Immersion teacher/tutor, national and international, I have developed teaching strategies (constructive pedagogy) that motivate, engage students, and stir them up to communicate with confidence in French.

*****Your progress begins as you are reading this intro*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program: 

1 Making the right choice requires two things. First, collect the info:  Watch my videos, read my profile and my reviews.  I provide a well structured curriculum,    various sets of input and comprehensible grammar sheets which are all included.  Second, try a few classes and see if you get the feeling "I like this guy and I trust he can help" because YES: chemistry is important since it creates a special bond that will help us achieve our goals.
2 Always record your sessions so you can stay focused during your interaction with the teacher because that’s when the real learning is happening. After you can watch it and take notes. This approach has proved itself as the most efficient way to improve retention. All those tons of material will be well organized in your notebook and in your head. It’s like you are creating your own textbook which ...

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

I haven't learned a new language for a long time, but I am still on the journey of using a language that is not my native language. My first language is French, and my second language is English. Before immersing myself in English full time by moving to New York 10 years ago, I learned English for 15 years as part of my education.  Recently, I came across an app called Duolingo, and let me tell you, I wish I could have had access to Duolingo all this time!
