I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!).

I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France!

I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

Hi everyone! I'm Nicola, and I teach both French and acting. I've been teaching French since 2011 and acting since 2013. I have my bachelor's degree in French from Columbia University and my master's degree in the history of theatre from the Sorbonne-Nouvelle University in France. I teach a few

I have been working with Nicola for the past 4 months and I would highly recommend her for anyone that is completely new to the French language. She is very flexible and willing to design the lesson to meet your goals. Nicola has a way of making learning a new language interesting, fun and non-intimidating. I have done both in-person and online lessons with Nicola and I find that both are equally as effective. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a French tutor.
Nicola has been tutoring my daughter in 7th grade French. She’s wonderful, speaks like a native, and is very reliable. My daughter’s French grade has improved dramatically! We are very happy with her, and highly recommend her to all.
Cipriana C.
We've only had one lesson but Nicola is smart and great at explaining as she goes. I'm an adult and love her teaching style, and I could also see her being great with kids!

Do you like Japanese language? Culture? fashion? food?
I'm a native Japanese who loves and is passionate many things about Japan.
I lived in Japan for first half of my life and have been living in USA another half.

I learned English from beginner level when I came to US and went through hard time learning a foreign language myself, so I can understand what would be the best way for you to learn with your language level.

I've been helping my friends and taught Japanese online.
I'm very patient and natural listener, so I will create my lessons customized from your personalities, goals, and language levels.

I'm also open to advise most things about Japan other than language.
I'm very flexible, easy to talk to and love to talk to people from all over the world.
I would like to help you learn what you are interested about Japan to reach your goals.

Let's have a fun and learn Japanese or about Japan together!

About Sayaka

Nice to meet you! I'm a native Japanese who have been in US for over 10 years. I have taught Japanese to my friends and online. I am a very patient and a natural listener, so I will listen to your goal, observe your level of Japanese and customize your lessons to be as efficient as possible within

Great lesson! I felt that I actually was able to learn more in one lesson than two months of trying to teach myself on language apps. Sayaka was very friendly and easy to work with. Looking forward to more lessons.
Verghese Polakunnil
It’s very fun having a lesson with Teacher Sayaka! She makes me feel like she’s more of a friend to help more than a teacher. Lesson speed was perfect for me and she picked up what level I was really fast which was great! I really recommend her!

About Ro

From the age of 4, Ro composed music and played piano by ear, dreaming of the day when she would be able to hear her pieces played by full string orchestras and symphony orchestras. In high school, she began studying classical piano performance with Mrs. Patricia Randolph, graduate of Eastman Scho

Recent Reviews
Ro is beyond talented. She helped my daughter, who was struggling emotionally, to have a creative outlet that she LOVES. It builds her confidence and she enjoys every single lesson. When my daughter sings songs that she wrote with Ro while playing piano I cry every single time. It actually creates a deeper love of music because it’s personal to her. It’s not like other lessons where she is memorizing music she can’t relate to, I cannot recommend RO enough. Ro has helped my daughter during this pandemic immeasurably!
It's been incredible to see my son grow in his songwriting, audio engineering, and guitar skills. Ro has been a great teacher and mentor for the past 3 years now, and I can see the huge positive impact she's had on Michael's life. I'm so grateful she offers online lessons.
My 6 year old daughter is always looking forward to her lessons with Ro every week. They seem to have so much fun together and my daughter is learning voice, piano, and songwriting at the same time. Ro really amazes me and I'm so glad that our friends recommended her to us.

"Good introductory class!"
Won Jong
Took ESL lessons from Henry M.
"Lesson went great! I really love that the lessons are personalized and that we can stop and try again with anything that comes more slowly to me personally, and that we can go faster with the things that I get more quickly. Today we learned the colors, the consonants, and the basic vowels as well as reviewing some basic Korean phrases from last week. Jihye is so nice and very pleasant. Thank you, Jihye! See you next week!!"
Took Korean lessons from Jihye L.
"Charlene is an excellent teacher. Her lesson demonstrated that she is an experienced instructor with a passion for teaching. She was fully engaged and encouraged me to go forward with my Portuguese language learning. I enjoyed our first lesson which included assessment, grammar and extremely helpful pronunciation cues. I recommend her highly."
Took Portuguese lessons from Charlene J.
"She is a great professional and she loves to listen and help her students.
She helped me a lot with my english to find my first job in NYC!"
Took English lessons from Deirdre T.
"Ana is a very capable teacher and is engaging from the start. Lessons are easy to follow, and she makes learning a new language fun"
Took Spanish lessons from Ana S.
"English has always been a huge struggle for me! Having Austin kindly share many useful tips has really gone a long way for me! I enjoyed having the lessons at either nearby Coffee Shops or at Austin's church. I have come to not only understand how to write a better paper, but also embrace how fun it can be to effectively convey my thoughts. I definitely recommend Austin!"
Took English lessons from Austin Y.
"We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra 30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!"
Took Mandarin Chinese lessons from Tammy Y.
"I learned a lot today! Thank you Jean! :)"
Took French lessons from Jean-Luc B.
"I was so happy with my lessons. When I mentioned anything I wanted to learn more on, We did it the very next scheduled lesson. I had been learning on my own but lacked the confidence speaking with people, besides my boyfriend. As the lessons went on, I was building that up and now I am confident and excited to be speaking more Spanish with everyone."
Took Spanish lessons from Catalina O.
"Irene is so great! She is warm and friendly and very patient -- she explains things slowly and clearly, and I'm having a really fun time working on my Spanish with her. Would highly recommend!"
Took Spanish lessons from Irene P.

Studying French Verbs: Le Futur Antérieur

If you've studied French verbs for a while, you probably know about le présent, le passé composé, l'imparfait, et le futur. You may also know something about reflexive verbs and verbs of motion, and their particularities in the passé composé. You may even be familiar with le passé simple. What happens, though, when you want to describe an action that hasn't happened yet, but that will be complete before a particular action or time in the future? In English, we use the future perfect …
