Thanks for the great lesson

Finding a good French teacher is hard. I’ve had many over the years. Olivier is completely bilingual and brings a breadth of knowledge, patience, engagement, and personalization to his teaching that makes him, hands down, the best tutor I’ve ever had. Don’t be intimidated by his qualifications—he is extremely personable. If you take learning French seriously, you want Olivier.
Priscilla
Olivier has been tutoring me for the past year. He is always very clear in his explanations and very patient. Olivier is also knowledgeable about the French culture. I walk out of every lesson with more confidence about my French and the progress that I'm making. Definitely a 5-star tutor. I highly recommend Olivier as a French tutor.

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 !

"I met Elsa because a child I nanny for was in one of Elsa's French students and immediately after the first day she was enchanted by Elsas charm and engaging energy. Since then Elsa has started teaching me, and I have such fun speaking with her. She is very thorough and comprehensive in explaining, and keeps me feeling challenged. I am so happy to have found her and be learning French through her."

"I would highly recommend Zach! He is patient, supportive, and knowledgeable. He truly wants you to learn, while always keeping class fun. Zach will repeat pronunciations as needed until you have complete understanding. Not only does he teach the French language, but also French culture. Zach is encouraging yet provides a challenge for you to reach your goals for learning. He's always organized, on time, and shows interest in your progress. I have been learning with Zach for months and will continue taking his classes."
