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

Private French Teacher

I've been teaching French for 6 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!

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.

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.

Elsa is an amazing teacher. My daughter loves her and is extremely excited to learn French. We have been doing virtual classes for a month and my daughter has already learned numbers, colors, and animals. Elsa has done an amazing job keeping my daughter engaged in a virtual class.

I teach children and adults from beginner to upper intermediate level. I studied the language for a year at a French institution and then I went to France to improve my skills. I want my students to learn a great variety of vocabulary and to feel comfortable in speaking the language.

"Mademoiselle Schram is intuitive to the student’s needs as a learner of the French language. In the beginning and as one continues with studying she will ask what interest one has in the French language and tailor lessons in accordance to goals and French studies. Always there is a thread of excitement in relaying information and teaching that only an instructor that loves what he or she does…is able to convey to and through the student. There is a wonderful level of comfort one derives from being in Mademoiselle Schram’s presence that acts as an impetus of flow for easygoing and interesting learning, instruction, and information. Also, she is clear in pronunciation of French and will continually break down words that one may have trouble when listening with a foreign ear and speaking by imitation and repetition. Mademoiselle Schram is elegant of manner, intellect, and “je ne sais quoi” (uniqueness) of a French woman that incorporates well into study and overall learning. She is able to answer questions regarding culture and mannerisms of French people and way of life succinctly. She is exceedingly patient when one asks questions and always responds with a ready compelling answer. Mademoiselle Schram guides one as a student successfully by being perceptive in incorporating, suggesting, referencing French learning aids, websites, and or other instructional devices that take a student’s level of learning French to another level. She is precise and consistently responsible in meeting at the exact time set for learning no matter where a student is in the world. She is constantly present and focused in the time allotted for French learning. She is also well prepared beforehand with every instruction which offers a smooth flowing transition from one aspect of french to the next. Mademoiselle Schram does not disappoint…if anything she delivers…and delivers the entirety of French exceedingly well. Thank you always Mademoiselle Schram for all of the knowledge you impart. Ainsi, J’aime Mademoiselle Schram. Merci beaucoup!"
