Award-Winning French Tutors in New York, NY
Robert "Last year, I worked as an English teacher in Tokyo. There, I cultivated a student-centered teaching style, where I serve as a guide for my students. I absolutely love to teach..."
Elizabeth "... I love helping with test prep; SAT, ISEE, SSAT. My students have increased confidence and scores, and have gained admission to top independent schools and colleges after our time spent in test prep. I love helping students find meaning in their learning. So, you won't be bored..."
Ksenia "...As our dean once said, a classroom is the only place that you can walk into, say the sky is purple, and do something productive with such an absurd idea. I currently work for the Exhibitions Department of the American Federation of Arts. My job is exciting and intellectually stimulating, but my plan is to go to graduate school next fall. I have also continued tutoring privately, although most of my students have now graduated..."
Alexander "...I have taught in France, Africa, and in Boston, and I am especially passionate about language tutoring (French, Latin), although I also love teaching math, writing, and helping students through the college admissions process (including SAT prep). I have a critical-thinking-focused approach to teaching; that is, I focus on helping my students understand the concepts and frameworks underlying their most difficult assignments, and I try to improve their study habits and problem solving strategies. Outside of the realm of teaching, I also love sports and music..."
Lucia "...While at Wellesley, I studied studio art (specifically, oil painting and life drawing), studied French and Italian, and studied abroad in London. I have a long history of tutoring and teaching, ranging from peer-tutoring in college-level astronomy to tutoring third graders in Common Core math. I work very well with all ages: with young children because of my easy going and gentle nature, and with older students because of my patience and commitment to their individual success..."
Arshya "...The fact that you are actively looking for tutoring is the first wonderful sign that you are looking to set yourself up for success. Congratulations. I would be honored to be part of that process with you. I'm approved for many levels of French tutoring--ecoutez, c'est parfait parce que j'adore cette langue. I took French 2-4 in high school (including AP French), minored in French at USC, and recently spent eight months living in the French countryside..."
Zachary "...It's my first love and my gateway to everything from literature to linguistics. I'm a believer that true passion for what you teach is essential to being a great tutor. It's sometimes easy for students to forget what learning means to them in an often stressful and frustrating world of standardized tests and and final exams, but a helpful tutor can really make the difference by presenting the material in a way that is simple and clear and by approaching it with methods that meet each student's needs..."
Sophia "...Prior to my work experience in France, I received a Masters degree in Literary Translation (French to English) from New York University while working as an America Reads and Counts Tutor. As a tutor, I served as a Teacher’s Assistant to a second grade classroom, and it was this experience which inspired me to contribute to the world through teaching. Helping the teacher and students work more efficiently together showed me how important a tutor’s aid can be in the learning process..."
Sean "... I am a marathon runner, indoor soccer player, dancer, and a whole lot of other things that I am trying every day. One of the things I love about living in New York City is that if I choose to, I can experience a new activity or hobby every single day. I love tutoring, teaching, and coaching because I believe the secret to happy living is giving..."

Ilene "...During my junior year at Clark University, I participated in a semester long study abroad program in Segovia, Spain. Between all of my coursework conducted in Spanish and my profound experience living with a Spanish family in Spain, I was able to solidify my command for the language and understanding of the culture. Additionally, I have taught adult, children's and prenatal yoga classes in Spanish..."
