Emily is very knowledgeable about the roots of languages. Her expertise in linguistics has really helped me to understand concepts I previously had a hard time with. She is super patient with me and I am very happy to have her as my tutor!

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.

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.

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!

We had some trouble with the audio on her end, but once we got going, it went well. I spoke and understood a lot of French in my first hour! Julie is going to help me with singing in French. I'm so excited.

"I have had four classes with Jean-Luc and am enjoying it very much. I have "homework" for the first time in decades. I am also doing a few other online studies, and find that my lessons with Jean-Luc really complement that. In particular, I am learning correct pronunciation and when it is correct to use certain phrases."

"Phillippe was a wonderful, patient instructor who clearly cares about his students and is dedicated to their learning. 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."
