Taylor really enjoyed her session with Ms Marie, she stated she felt inspired to do better. Looking forward to another lesson.
Lorraine R.
I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.
Guerschom D.
I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

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!

Private French Teacher

My teaching method is based on a dialogue with the student and written exercises but nothing strict. I intend to help the student by giving him strong skills with the vocabulary, the pronunciation, the understanding.
Those lessons are to all ages and levels.

My approach of each topic is very open, I'm aiming to support the student on his project, in a relaxed atmosphere. Then, I can base my lessons according to the needs— Meaning help for homework, translation, professional requirements, or simply to teach the basics of french, etc. I'ld be very flexible according to what the student is requiring, and would support him until the goal is reached.

About Chloé

I'm a french film producer, and have been giving private lesson to foreign students wishing to learn french in Paris and Berlin the last couple of years. I also animated summer camp to introduce adults as kids to the art of photography, have a master degree in Literature, Linguistic and Film Studie

Online French Teacher

I have been teaching my native language for more than 7 years and I still enjoy sharing my love and great interest in the French language.
My experience in teaching full classes or private tutoring has made me someone patient, understanding and flexible. Whatever the time it takes, I want to see my students succeed and have fun while learning.
As a teacher, I know that every student is unique and it is dear to my heart to respond and adapt to each one. That is why I first suggest one lesson to determinate together your goals and a plan to achieve them. Also, because everyone has special needs and different ways to memorize, I am used to exploit multiple course materials (videos, board games, text books, role plays, etc.) to facilitate the learning process and make it really enjoyable.

About Aurore

Hello, my name is Max, and I would love to teach you French. I have a great passion for romance languages, and I have devoted a large percentage of that time studying French. I took many French classes during my time at university and I have studied French 1-4 and some upper level French classes. I know the language and grammar well, and I would love to teach you. I have taught French in a middle school, elementary school, and privately at all levels so I know how to teach according to your level. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile and I wish you luck with your studies in the future!

Adapted the lesson to my skill level. That's always a good sign.

Max has been a stellar double bass tutor for my son. He caught on right away how to work with him and improve his playing, technique and music theory. You can really tell he has a passion for music (especially the double bass) and teaching. Will continue to have my son study under him :)

Max was very helpful as a teacher. He gave me a lot of good insight into picking the bass for bluegrass music. I've been primarily playing bowed music. I plan to continue my lessons with him.

"Professor Jean-Luc is phenomenal. I think the material he has chosen to give lessons with is very clear and has helped me improve a lot. Before every lesson he makes sure to send you the material for the next class, which helps a lot specially when you are learning online. The main reason why I chose him is because he is a french native speaker, which was extremely important to me because all my life I had french teachers that weren't french, so my pronunciation was a little bit weird-- I feel that I have improved a lot these 4 months :). I started learning French when I was 11 years old and Professor Jean-Luc helped me refresh my mind--it is interesting how he helped me remember many small grammar and writing details. I am very satisfied! Thank you Professor."

"I have been learning french for many years through my school system, and I have never really been confident in the language itself even though I've really liked it. Along with learning the smaller important details about french, I've been learning how to be confident with my speech, and how to sound more like a natural french speaker. Zach is also super kind, and will help you with any french questions you have, in and out of your lessons."

French Grammar Rules: Reading Le Passé Simple

There is one French verb tense that you will likely only come across in literature, the passé simple. French tutor Carol Beth L. shows you how to recognize and understand this tense... The passé simple is a unique tense in the French language. Perhaps one or two centuries ago, it was commonly used like the simple past in English. For example: J'allai au magasin. I went to the store. Je couru deux kilometres. I ran two kilometers. The passé simple is similar to the simple …
