I met Elsa because a child I nanny for was in one of Elsa's French students and immediately after the first day she was enchanted by Elsas charm and engaging energy. Since then Elsa has started teaching me, and I have such fun speaking with her. She is very thorough and comprehensive in explaining, and keeps me feeling challenged. I am so happy to have found her and be learning French through her.

My son Nicholas (10 months old) and I have been taking French classes with Elsa since February and she is an absolutely delightful and effective French teacher. I really enjoy her classes as does my little boy. He enjoys the songs, the games, and the colors immensely and hears native French while he plays! I enjoy practicing the French I already know, learning new vocabulary and learning new games to play with my child in a language I have come to love.

Elsa is a very cheerful young lady, wonderful with Nicholas, and has a real talent for explaining French grammar and the nuances between French and English. I enjoy getting to ask her my questions and benefit from her knowledge on an adult level, just as I enjoy watching her engage with my son on his level. She is clearly very experienced in teaching young children and makes learning lots of fun for them. Anyone looking to learn French themselves and have their child begin French at an early age will really benefit from Elsa's classes.

Elsa was an amazing French instructor for my daughters. She is patient (so so patient!!) and always positive and happy. She was always perfectly on time and prepared completely for each and every lesson. Above all, she really engaged my girls with the French curriculum each week and they never complained about having their lessons. Elsa used a combination of books, songs, and online material to keep the lessons moving at pace and was brilliant at gauging when my girls needed to switch things up. She really made every lesson fun! I strongly recommend her to anyone.

Elsa is wonderful, very attentative, informative and flexible to my schedule. She tailors the lesson to my level/skill with emphasis on my weak areas. I feel more confident with speaking, vocabulary and pronunciation with each and every lesson!

Merci beaucoup Elsa!!
