I've been teaching French as a second language for years. Within the first few lessons, I promise you will be able to pronounce the letters, to make short sentences and use them, as time goes on, you'll be able to introduce yourself, describe your family and your job. I start teaching essentials: colors, numbers, days of the week, seasons, etc... with greetings and practicing the daily routine plus reading basic children’s books to enrich your vocabulary then continuing with more advanced reading materials including newspapers and articles...
I use my own "simple" tools but also ready to help you with your own book or exam. I have experience with students of all ages and I can't wait to meet you!
Je suis prête à vous aider et je vous encourage à commencer tout de suite :) Bonne chance

About Marie A

My only goal is to reach your needs and desire to learn a new language then proceed from there in a fun immersion method. As per my student's testimony, I am very patient. I like to innovate to engage early learners (flashcards, children's books, stories, songs), then I move to more advanced arti

I've been working with Marie for about a month and it's been a great way to take my beginner French learning to another level after months of learning via an app. Her command on the French language is evident and she is very patient (especially when I've had to reschedule sessions several weeks in a row!). I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with her.
Lauren
Marie is a great teacher! I always looked forward to my French lessons each week and Marie was always patient and fun to practice with. Highly recommend lessons with her!
Ruth
My son is a very active 7 year old. Teaching him Arabic via zoom is a challenge of its own. Due to our Summer schedule my son has temporarily stopped taking classes with Marie (but our goal is for him to resume once school is back in session). With that being said, Marie was always very patient with my son and found ways to keep him intrigued. Even if it meant to talk about "lizards"! I liked the fact that Marie expressed to my son that it was his responsibility to gather his worksheets, prepare for the class, and do any extra work. That showed me that she took the extra step(s) to also teach him responsibility, which was a bonus!!!!

Private French Teacher

I am a seasoned language teacher, of both adults and children. Making languages come alive through interesting anecdotes, songs, and stories, is my specialty. My schooling, from age four to 14, was 100% in French. Boy, did those nuns drill us in grammar! I understand that learning French can feel intimidating, especially for English speakers. That's why I am very patient, and very willing to explain and teach things in many different ways.

About Bettina

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition proces

A great start to Latin. My daughter was very engaged and enjoyed the session tremendously. She came in reluctantly but is now looking forward to her next lesson all thanks to how Janet engaged her and broke down complex concepts into understandable bites.

I've been teaching French since 2014 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 production. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Elsa is awesome. She is a native speaker and shares the nuances of French as it is actually spoken and not just as it is taught. She is friendly and upbeat and an absolute pleasure to spend time with. I can't recommend her enough!
Inna
Elsa has been great with teaching both of my daughters. She is very energetic and has a lot of positive approaches with both a 5 and a 8 year old. She caters the lessons to each level and skill set. My kids always look forward to her classes.
Erika
I can say without hesitation that Elsa is the most professional and pleasant teacher that I have ever worked with. She is very customer service oriented, efficient, and flexible if you have a specific goal in mind.

My teenage daughter looks forward to the class and always ends the session with a smile on her face. She has fun with Elsa while she is learning. Win win!

I highly recommend French Encore!

I have taught beginning French in a classroom setting and beginning and intermediate French in a tutoring setting. During my time as a graduate student, I worked abroad for several months in France.

About Jonathan

I have over thirty years of experience working with students of all ages, both in private and group settings. I have also taught in Latin America - in Spanish - as a Fulbright scholar. I have had the privilege of teaching with TakeLessons.com since 2012.

Adam
I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.
