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!

Such a wonderful, encouraging, and patient teacher. He is strict and demanding, but always kind, and it's all for the sake of letting me improve as much as possible. I have learned a lot in a very short time.

Bonjour à tous!

Dear French Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows everyone to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons always begin with a dialogue, no matter your level. From how you are feeling, to what you did during the week, to the weather of your best friend's gossip, we warm up with a conversation I type out as we go.

The rest of the lesson is then spent reviewing previous work and introducing new material in a variety of ways, constantly setting a rule in practice. Poems, songs or texts, depending on your interest, keep the content alive and interesting.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

I've been teaching French as a second language for years. Within the first few lessons, I promise you will be able to pronounce the letters, to make short sentences and use them, as time goes on, you'll be able to introduce yourself, describe your family and your job. I start teaching essentials: colors, numbers, days of the week, seasons, etc... with greetings and practicing the daily routine plus reading basic children’s books to enrich your vocabulary then continuing with more advanced reading materials including newspapers and articles...
I use my own "simple" tools but also ready to help you with your own book or exam. I have experience with students of all ages and I can't wait to meet you!
Je suis prête à vous aider et je vous encourage à commencer tout de suite :) Bonne chance

About Marie A

My only goal is to reach your needs and desire to learn a new language then proceed from there in a fun immersion method. As per my student's testimony, I am very patient. I like to innovate to engage early learners (flashcards, children's books, stories, songs), then I move to more advanced arti

I've been working with Marie for about a month and it's been a great way to take my beginner French learning to another level after months of learning via an app. Her command on the French language is evident and she is very patient (especially when I've had to reschedule sessions several weeks in a row!). I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with her.
Lauren
Marie is a great teacher! I always looked forward to my French lessons each week and Marie was always patient and fun to practice with. Highly recommend lessons with her!
Ruth
My son is a very active 7 year old. Teaching him Arabic via zoom is a challenge of its own. Due to our Summer schedule my son has temporarily stopped taking classes with Marie (but our goal is for him to resume once school is back in session). With that being said, Marie was always very patient with my son and found ways to keep him intrigued. Even if it meant to talk about "lizards"! I liked the fact that Marie expressed to my son that it was his responsibility to gather his worksheets, prepare for the class, and do any extra work. That showed me that she took the extra step(s) to also teach him responsibility, which was a bonus!!!!

I was born and raised in Nice, France. I arrived in the United States in 2010, to study music in California. I just received my doctorate from the University of Miami.

I have taught French to foreign people in France since I was 18 years old (my mother has been doing that for over 30 years now) and since I arrived here to adults and students. I was also a French tutor during my Bachelor, Master and Doctorate programs.

Through private lessons I can help you get ready for exams and midterms, help you improve your french or just offer you to have a conversation with a native speaker. I love my culture and would love to share it with you if you are interested.

"Zach is awesome! After studying French in high school and college, working with Zach made me realize how many things I either learned wrong, remembered incorrectly or just never knew. He has made me much more conscious about verbal language production, and I find myself much better equipped to say more things correctly or course correct as I'm speaking. The variety of activities is excellent. All are practical and contemporary. The ability to learn and take chances in a non-judgmental environment has been wonderful."
