Private French Teacher

I've been teaching French for 4 years 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 producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Elsa

Hi, there! My name is Elsa and I can't wait to meet you! I was born and raised in France and I went to Université of Avignon in France and earned a Master's degree in Teaching French as a Foreign or Second Language in 2016. I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learning French and English. I'm a dynamic and enthusiastic person and my teaching style is personalized to my students needs. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Zachary G.

New York, NY 10028


Private French Teacher

Students can expect to develop a strong base of grammar and diction. Having lived, studied, and worked in Paris for 3 years, I can offer insight into the culture of the French language.

About Zachary

I am an orchestral conducting Masters graduate from Mannes College of Music who has been playing piano since the age of 4. I have been teaching beginner and intermediate piano for the past 5 years to students ranging from ages 7 - 65. I teach all types of styles ranging from classical to jazz to pop with everything in-between.

My students can expect to develop a strong and reliable technique while being able to express their musical ideas with a clear and dynamic level of sophistication. It's the stories and emotions that draw people to music, so I do my best to base my teachings around that concept.

I come from a bilingual; French American family. This allows me to communicate effectively with the people that are wanting to learn. We will go from the basics, working our way up.

About Alice

I have been shooting since 2005. Since, then I have been on the USA Archery National Teams several years in a row, as well as traveled to international countries to compete. I have been on the Recurve Junior Dream Team for a year, before I aged out, but before that I was attending camps as an invitee. I've also lived at the Olympic Training Center out in Chula Vista, CA for a few months shooting besides some of the top archers in the country. Since in college, I have been on the archery teams at all the schools I've been to. I was All American for two years in a row, hoping for a thrid chance at it. At the Florida Institute of Technology, I have started up an Archery Club, hoping to get the team to nationals, placing the school on the map for other archers to join.

I am a Level 2 Coach, aiming for her level 3 NTS Coaching Certificatio

n, and with my background experience I want to introduce this amazing sport to all individuals so they can also enjoy it to their hearts content. I used to coach at a range in Massachussets, as well as give private lessons at home, before moving down to Melbourne for college. I also make custom recurve bow strings, and tune equipment.

I provide private lessons, helping the students get comfortable with the sport before getting them to farther distances. I want the studnets to love thst sport that I do, by intergrating games into practices. When and if the students want to do group lessons, those can also be arranged to allow them to get used to shooting with their peers.

I love being able to teach people the sport that changed my life. I love seeing the smile on the childrens faces when they accomplish things they didnt excpect. I love seeing the expression on adults faces when they over come their doubt, and learn to enjoy the sport and relax into it.

Tina
"My 8 year daughter is taking one-on-one French lessons with Ms Aliaksandra. She has taken 3 lessons so far and loving it. I was invited to observe her las
t lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher! We are glad to have found Ms Aliaksandra."

"I took lessons with Evelyne wanting to refresh my high-school French and she's been fantastic. She brings the best attitude, very encouraging, helpful, an
d patient. Not only is she a native speaker (which is great), she also understands the grammatical structure of the language very well and knows how to present new material in a way that doesn't overwhelm you. She followed up every lesson with an email which made it easier for me to memorize new vocabulary. Overall, it's been a great experience and I highly recommend her."

Here are some of the strangest French idioms and phrases you're likely to come across in an otherwise normal conversation. 15 French Idioms & Funny Phrases 1.
