I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

French is my second language, but it often feels as it if were the first, as I have been speaking it for many years on an everyday and professional basis. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). I edited a 240-page scholarly book, De La Case A La Villa (published 2014), and I give both private and group lessons.

I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

Zena S.
My 9 year old son has had French lessons once a week with Elsa for the last 3 years both in person and currently online. From the start it was clear, Elsa is a highly skilled and accredited teacher for children. Each lesson starts with a song which kick starts my son’s engagement. The hour-long class has a fun pace to it and is well structured to balance learning & fun. Elsa is also very kind and good humored which makes my son relish his classes. Watching him gain confidence in his French language skills has been so rewarding. I am extremely grateful to have found such an exceptional French tutor as Elsa.
Shawna K
Let me start by saying, Elsa is magnifique! We met Elsa through a trusted Francophone friend.

We created a virtual pod of three girls in second grade and couldn't be happier. Elsa is warm, patient and incredibly engaging. She makes learning French fun through songs, visuals, writing and dance. Yes dance! Teaching online is not easy but Elsa is a natural. I can't recommend her more.

Elsa is an amazing, attentive and supportive teacher!! I’m working through so much with her and I know I’m improving. I highly recommend her as an instructor!

I will be focusing on your very needs, either using your methodology, or any other. I can provide complementary support to Rosetta Stone, for example as some students struggle to learn English on their own with this methodology. I can recommend websites and books.

Just finished my 4th class with Isabelle. She has been very helpful with my French conversation. She meets me at my level and then challenges me. She speaks clearly and at a speed I can understand. The notes after the lesson are excellent and help me to continue my learning. I highly recommend Isabelle!
Brian
"Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.
LINGYI
I have been having French lessons with Isabelle for more than 6 months. I definitely have learned a lot! Isabelle is very patient and flexible about different learning methods. I highly recommend her!

"M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication."

I was invited to observe her last lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher!
