Mr,Djeng is an excellent tutor - very patient and thorough. He spent extra time analyzing my speech and is a great listener and is narrowing down my problem areas. He is also good about giving me plenty of resources for outside of class. Very good lesson.

Elcane is an amazing teacher. He makes you feel comfortable straight away, is able to quickly analyze your strengths and weaknesses, and has exercises ready to go. I could tell that he had prepared different materials in advance so that he could customize a personal plan for me. Blown away by the high quality.
Kiren kaced
Elcane is a fantastic teacher and I would highly recommend him. He has a thorough understanding of the French language and grammar, which he is able to explain in simple terms. In addition, he provides well structured lessons, prepared in advance, to make the learning experience very effective. As we go through each lesson he makes a note of new vocabulary and any language errors which we review at the end of every lesson. He is also very personable and easy to talk to.

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.

Private French Teacher

Bonjour!

I grew up about twenty minutes from the border with France and got to go there regularly from early on. I started learning French when I was 12 and started teaching it when I was 15 because, believe it or not, I enjoy the sometimes weird grammatical complexities of French.

At university I took advanced classes to continue learning and when I went to study in Canada I lived in a shared house with six native speakers of Canadian and European French. This year I spent the spring in Morocco and Togo where I got to experience two more varieties French.

I consider myself highly Francophile, enjoy reading in French and take pleasure in teaching it. Explaining grammar, spelling, pronunciation and difficult features of the language are my assets as I have been largely successful in sharing them with students, friends and acquaintances over the years.

Allons-y! :)

Danielle K.
The first lesson with Meriem was great. I’ve been teaching myself French, and I have some pretty big gaps in basic knowledge. She did a great job helping me figure out what I need to work on. I look forward to more lessons.
Justin
I spent a couple of months having lessons with Meriem and I definitely enjoyed my time. I had some previous knowledge of French words and phrases from various online tools but I lacked the insight that an actual instructor could bring. It was extremely beneficial to talk to someone who could correct me and help me learn. I hope that I can start my lessons again soon.
Rocio S.
I loved my first lesson. Meriem encouraged me to use my French and I felt little by little more confident in the conversation. Looking forward to our next lesson.

How Much Do French Lessons Cost?

Books, apps, and audio programs are all great resources, but they are primarily teaching you passive comprehension skills.
