I give Gina a 5 star because it doesn't have a 10. She is awesome, smart, fun, and caring. I take Spanish and makes so much easier because she also speaks fluent Portuguese (my native language), and she can explain the difference between both language. I highly recommend Gina :)

Private French Teacher

I was a high-school teacher at the French "Education Nationale" for 10 years during the first part of my career and then shifted to being a copywriter and a tutor in written communication for professionals (still in French). I am now an author but never stopped tutoring students of all ages.

I focus on learning methods and on practical exercises, for which private lessons are a privileged opportunity. The didactics of teaching are a passion of mine. They help in my own writing and encourage the rigor and open-mindedness that are necessary for all learning fields.

Having had a teaching experience both in-class and one-to-one, I genuinely appreciate the trust, confidence, and fun that the latter allows.

About Philippe

I am a French teacher with 10 years of experience in high school, 4 in individual tutoring, and 3 in training professional publics in written communication. Having the privilege of dual citizenship, I now enjoy living in the U.S and have become an author in my own right. I am indeed passionate about

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!

Her attention to pronunciation has given me confidence, and her helpful reminders and tips stay with me long after our lessons are over.

Not only is Marie excellent in communicating the basics of language, but she's also kind, patient, encouraging, and fun to work with. I look forward to our sessions each week!"
