My B.A. in French from Vassar College, combined with my M.A. in French and certification in teaching young students from Columbia Teacher's College, as well as my extensive experience living in Paris! I bring the cultural and linguistic together in one easy to learn package!
Students achieve great results with my unique method, because we begin speaking in full sentences from the very first lesson. Students see grades and test scores go up, and most of all gain confidence speaking French!

I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!).

I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France!

I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

I have been working with Nicola for the past 4 months and I would highly recommend her for anyone that is completely new to the French language. She is very flexible and willing to design the lesson to meet your goals. Nicola has a way of making learning a new language interesting, fun and non-intimidating. I have done both in-person and online lessons with Nicola and I find that both are equally as effective. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a French tutor.

Nicola has been tutoring my daughter in 7th grade French. She’s wonderful, speaks like a native, and is very reliable. My daughter’s French grade has improved dramatically! We are very happy with her, and highly recommend her to all.

We've only had one lesson but Nicola is smart and great at explaining as she goes. I'm an adult and love her teaching style, and I could also see her being great with kids!

Online French Teacher

I believe that a love of learning and a love of teaching go hand in hand. Teaching and tutoring allow me to help others develop that same love of learning that drives me in my studies. I find joy in showing students that intelligence is not fixed, helping them prove to themselves that they can improve their performance in any class with hard work.

The best tutors are people who love both the subjects they tutor and the feeling of helping someone succeed. I have been speaking French for 14 years, and I love the language and culture so much that I lived in Paris for a summer! Part of my tutoring process is helping others to appreciate the language and culture as well. With words of encouragement and a non-judgmental attitude, I help students tackle tough grammar, improve pronunciation, and learn to love speaking about language.

I prepare in advance for every lesson, regardless of the topic, to ensure that I am refreshed on the subject and to develop any materials I might use ...

Allison is VERY sweet, patient and thorough! I really enjoyed working with her. I learned SO much in just one hour!! I was hesitant about taking the lessons as I've tried lessons at my local Michael's store but didn't get much out of it. One on one with Allison was the right decision. If you are just thinking about it - DO IT!!! You won't regret it. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson with Allison :)

Interactive science sessions with Allison are enjoyed by my daughter who is 10 years old, she wants me to increase the frequency of sessions with her.

"Helene is the Best teacher I've ever known! I have been learning French for 3 years. And as I remember I always had a fear of French speaking, I was often forgetting even simplest words and grammar constructions during my speaking. It was my biggest trouble and awful nuisance for developing French skills. But she had helped me to fix that by encouraging, using relaxation techniques, involving into every lesson activity and topic. I'm going to continue our lessons till I'll have got the highest level. Sure, it is not a trivial goal, but now I know it will be achieved! And what about your biggest fear?))"

French tutor Annie A. shares four proven ways to improve your French listening skills... Understanding French can be quite a challenge, even if you can read the written language with comparative ease. To many English speaking students, whole sentences in French sound like one long word.
