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 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!
Frances
I'm delighted to have found Elsa! She is energetic and charming. She is a gifted teacher. Both my granddaughter and I take lessons with her - although not at the same time. She easily adjusts to the level of her student, young or mature, beginner or advanced, making her lessons engaging and informative.

Mélody is an excellent teacher. She is flexible and works according to my needs and is great at explaining grammar rules and pronunciation in a way that I can understand. She is knowledgeable about grammar and how to learn languages and has innovative ideas about how to make learning fun. I highly recommend her as a language tutor! I have been studying with her for the past two years and have seen significant growth as a result of our lessons. She is excellent.

Melody is an energetic, gifted tutor. The conversation is lively and precise. She is careful to explain the subtle meaning of works and phrases. I got to the level I desired with her. Will come back for periodic refreshers.

I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!).

I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France!

I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

I have been working with Nicola for the past 4 months and I would highly recommend her for anyone that is completely new to the French language. She is very flexible and willing to design the lesson to meet your goals. Nicola has a way of making learning a new language interesting, fun and non-intimidating. I have done both in-person and online lessons with Nicola and I find that both are equally as effective. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a French tutor.

Nicola has been tutoring my daughter in 7th grade French. She’s wonderful, speaks like a native, and is very reliable. My daughter’s French grade has improved dramatically! We are very happy with her, and highly recommend her to all.

Being born and raised in Geneva, the French-speaking part of Switzerland, French is my mother tongue. With a Swiss degree of pediatric nursing and teaching, I worked more than 15 years with children, families and adult learners. Finding the best way to learn depending on who you are and what goals you have is one of my specialties. I like to provide a dynamic and a fun learning environment to high schoolers and adults.
Having learnt multiple second languages, such as English, Italian, Spanish and German, I’m very aware of the process of learning a new language.
I can provide vocabulary, grammar, verbs, conversation as well as cultural aspects from different French speaking countries, as I was working with people from France and I spent 3 years in Montreal, Quebec.
I moved to Richmond four years ago, bringing many French books and ressources that could be used during lessons.

About Evelyne

"I highly recommend Isabelle as an expert in teaching French. She has great fluency in both French and English. Isabelle is from France and she regularly visits family there. Here in the United States, she and her husband have raised a family while she worked as an executive for an international company. These skills come forth beautifully in her style of teaching. For me, after one month of French lessons with Isabelle, I am much more comfortable with daily conversation, pronunciation, and verb conjugation. I enjoy our rapport and look forward to deepening my conversation skills with her."

He found ways to make learning fun, recommending books articles, websites, tv shows, and movies that would help me learn but also that he knew I would find interesting. Phillippe was flexible and responsive if something wasn’t working and willing to try lots of different techniques to make concepts stick. On top of being naturally capable, Phillippe was just a lovely person to chat and practice speaking with; his interest in the world around him ensured our conversations and classes were never dull. I achieved my language goals after a few months of study with him, and he made the process a pleasure. I would highly recommend him to anyone, and consider myself lucky to have had him as a teacher."

French (and many other romance languages) include a category of verbs, called reflexive verbs, that are treated a little differently than in English. Indeed, we have the same concept in English.

There is one French verb tense that you will likely only come across in literature, the passé simple. French tutor Carol Beth L. shows you how to recognize and understand this tense...
