Overview

I'm a Native French speaker, perfectly fluent in English and Spanish, with 16+ years experience in private and public school teaching in New York City.

My strong point is my ability to cater lessons fitted to the needs of every student through my knowledge of various teaching methods and use of diverse material that I have accumulated over a many year long period of attending teaching workshops and doing research.

When you sign up for a set of classes with me, in addition to the online lessons, you will also be given free and unlimited access to my private website of extensive French resources for students of all levels.

Mylène is a great instructor and has been very helpful with my French in many ways. I have never had a French lesson with a teacher before (only audio programs), so I am still a beginner. Mylène adapted her lessons to help with my needs for my quickly approaching trip to France... She had me speaking right away! Thank you!! ~Louis

I’m very happy with the lessons I’ve taken with Mylene. French language is used at all times. I am totally immersed. The teaching materials are excellent. I’m always engaged from the beginning to the end of a lesson. I also like the fact that Mylene provides us with plenty of materials for homework. She has greatly increased my confidence in being able to learn French.

My experience in learning French with Mylene, in the two years I’ve been taking lessons with her, exceeded my expectations. Mylene is very professional in her approach to providing excellent teaching. My online lessons have been amazing. I do so many interesting things during my lessons with Mylene that I don’t see my 11/2 hour lesson going by. In addition to her lessons, she has a student resource website that contains a huge variety of grammar, vocabulary, oral exercises and all kinds of other activities. This is very helpful. After each lesson, she also sends me supplemental online study material related to the lesson

I have been working with Mylene for a few months now. I like Mylene's teaching style very much. As a native Russian speaker, I was a little concerned about my French pronunciation. However, Mylene is a true expert in her subject, and after only couple of sessions I noticed huge improvements. Mylene makes learning French easy and enjoyable! I always look forward to my lessons with Mylene.

I wanted a French tutor that had been trained in the Rassias method. Mylène had that training and followed that method for our lesson so it was just what I was looking for. Mylène was very encouraging and helpful. It was a great lesson.
