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!

About Elsa M.

Hi there! My name is Elsa Mucyo and I can't wait to meet you!

I was born and raised in France and I went to Université of Avignon in France and earned a Master's degree in Teaching French as a Foreign or Second Language in 2016 complemented by over 6 years of teaching experience..

I began my career path as an activity leader working for 3 years with toddlers. Then, during my studies, I taught French to immigrant adults and then started teaching French to immigrant children who had just arrived in France and needed to enter the school system as fast as possible. I also taught French with professional objectives to adults from all over the world - in a residential center, right before coming to and settling down in the United States.

Soon after relocating in the United States in 2016, I started teaching French in private and group classes to babies, children, teenagers and adults with two well-established Language Schools in New York City and I also started having my own private students.

Pursuing my passion, the following school year, I worked as a Preschool Co-Teacher at La Petite École - a French Immersion School located in New York City. I am now a Preschool French Teacher at the French American Academy in Jersey City since two years.

I am skilled at preparing students to ace tests such SAT French, AP French and DELF/DALF exams.

I am creative and adapt well to each student’s learning goals, personality and starting language level. I have shown great results with students of all ages and even bringing a notable number of them to conversational level. I also have some knowledge in German.

My favorite hobbies include traveling, working out and reading.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Elsa is absolutely wonderful with our child. She's attentive, supportive and always fun!
More than knowing french language and culture, Elsa can also explain the nuances in language and culture between english and french.
Every class is a joy and we look forward to many more.

I've only had three classes but feel I've already learned so much. Learning a new language can be intimidating but Elsa is patient and very kind throughout the process. I was worried about sounding silly but she encourages you every step of the way. She really is a great teacher!!

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.

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.

Exceptional, mindful, has been teaching my kids via Skype — It works! We think she's terrific -- she is a fun and inspiring tutor for our daughters. They have worked with Elsa for 3 years, and they really enjoy speaking French now. She is using her creativity and empathy skills to help unlock our daughters' full potential. She has an uncanny ability to make them feel comfortable. We believe she has the ability to connect with and engage all types of learners and she makes learning French so much fun. We highly recommend her.

Elsa is very engaging and has knowledge of how to teach French, not just knowledge of how to speak it. She is able to explain the rules, which is a big help to me as I try to make sense of it all.

Elsa is a really fun, interesting and really patient teacher. An hour lesson just flys by and I’ve learned so much from her. She is really good at figuring out what level I am at in French and then pushing me a litttle to build on what I know and help me understand the proper way to word something and use past, present and future tense verbs.
Because she’s French, her accent is perfect, but she also speaks perfect English.
I’m so excited to return to France and to use all that I’ve learned from her!

Elsa is an amazingly thoughtful, personable, and patient instructor. During our weekly lessons, Elsa came up with interesting discussion topics to help with the advancement of my French conversational skills. Further, Elsa also thoroughly explained French grammatical structure when correcting/pointing out my errors.

I have truly made significant progress during my lessons with Elsa and highly recommend her.

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!!
