From the get go I knew I had found the perfect teacher,
Enrico is a motivating teacher.
He challenges you to learn what you need by reading and discussing interesting materials he sends .it isn't just not doing verbs exercises and tenses but actually participating in actual situations as if you were in Italy .
Enrico quickly helps you get over the nervousness that students experience when reading out loud and discussing the meaning of words in sentences and their uses.

Mylène was very patient and well prepared prepared for our first lesson. She has a friendly and encouraging demeanor which is so helpful to beginning students. She gave me the opportunity to both answer questions in French and to ask them. She determines the students level of ability, then moves instruction forward from there. She had many visual aids to guide conversation and study materials were provided after the lesson. I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson and look forward to the next one.

I enjoyed the first lesson. It was interesting and fascinating. Mylene posts grammar and vocabulary lessons on Quizlet. It allows to do a lot of exercises in the form of a game. Very helpful and inspiring!

She's FANTASTIC! I've never met a teacher like Mylene before. She really prepares a lot for your class and has so many helpful materials. She also makes sure that you review and study what you've learned in the class, which really helps me make a progress. I'm almost hesitant to write this review since I don't want her to become too busy! ;-)

About Erika I.

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!

I have been studying Hebrew with Bettina for awhile now and find her very , warm pleasant and non judgmental. Which promotes a relaxed learning environment. Since Hebrew is the national language of Israel she will share her own rich experiences from the Israeli culture.
i enjoy learning from all she has to share.
I also find her witty at times!

I've been teaching French for 3 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!

My two girls are improving their French with Elsa and they absolutely love her! She is very responsive to each of their apparent levels, and she works to improve their skills. My kids ask all week long if its time to have French with Elsa. Highly recommend! <3

I'll provide individualized classes depending on what are the student's weaknesses and strengths. French is my first language so I can teach from basic grammar lessons to advanced conversations on specific topics. We can also study literature or subjects you might be interested in, like politics, or anything related to the French culture.

Celine was superb; conscientious; patient; knowledgeable; sense of humor. I gave only four stars today because this was just our first lesson. I am confident that before our experiences are over, she will have earned her fifth star.
