Bonjour!

I am French, and I live in New York. I graduated with a college degree from La Sorbonne in Italian translation. Thus, languages are my passion.

About Melody S.

I have tutored for four years in New York for all levels: children and teenagers, attending the best schools and universities in the country, and adults. It would be a pleasure to help new students discover the French language and culture.

You can find below my expertise fields:
-Grammar, conversation, writing and reading for beginners
-Help for homework with all school levels (mainly high school and college)
-Conversation with adults eager to perfect their French
-Immerge the little ones into French language (bilingual children or absolute beginners)
-Prepare exams such as DELF, French Subject Test

Mélody is an excellent teacher. She is flexible and works according to my needs and is great at explaining grammar rules and pronunciation in a way that I can understand. She is knowledgeable about grammar and how to learn languages and has innovative ideas about how to make learning fun. I highly recommend her as a language tutor! I have been studying with her for the past two years and have seen significant growth as a result of our lessons. She is excellent.

Melody is an energetic, gifted tutor. The conversation is lively and precise. She is careful to explain the subtle meaning of works and phrases. I got to the level I desired with her. Will come back for periodic refreshers.

Melody is an amazing teacher. She is patient, methodical, and makes you improve so quickly! I wanted to be challenged, someone who could boost my fluency. In a few classes, I already noticed progress. I highly recommend Melody for any level!

I have been studying with Melody for about half a year now. I enjoy the lessons immensely. She is flexible, always adjusts to what I want while at the same time keeps me on my toes, challenging and encouraging. I admire her patience, listening to my broken French attentively, identifying patterns we need to work on in a friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.
