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.

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.

Melody is an amazing teacher. She is patient, methodical, and makes you improve so quickly! I wanted to be challenged, someone who could boost my fluency. In a few classes, I already noticed progress. I highly recommend Melody for any level!

I offer lessons in Spanish, French, Italian and beginner German. I have been teaching and tutoring languages for the past 4 years and have since developed a special tailored curriculum for all students. No student is taught in the exact same way by me, I will give you the individual and specific attention you need and help you form language acquisition goals that we can work on together. There are many materials and resources that I often use with students, so if you are a beginner I can offer helpful suggestions and methods for approaching the language you'd like me to teach you. For advanced students, we can focus on specific areas of interest.
I am a past graduate from Case Western Reserve University where I specialized in Music and Language studies. For those who like the structured textbook approach, I do also offer University level grammar and literature instruction. If you are interested in learning one of the languages I cover, please message me and we can discuss to find out ...

My strong interest for languages oriented me towards a "Literature Baccalaureate" for which I studied - among other fields - German, English, Ancient Greek and Latin, and graduated Summa cum Laude in 2010. After high school, I went on to study for five years at Sciences Po Paris, France's elite school for social and political sciences.

Learning about the hidden history of words and the construction of sentences has always fascinated me, and I strongly believe that this is what makes the difference between a regular native speaker, and one who can actually transmit his knowledge of the language. Writing and speaking a proper french is not enough. When it comes to teaching, one has to be able to explain the "why" behind each word, idiom and grammatical rule, because that is how we remember best. Combined with a burning desire to understand movies, songs and books in their original version, this method makes wonders. Because as my best teacher once told me : “ We get into a culture ...
