Bonjour! Je m'appelle Elena Tikhonova. I earned my BA from the University of Foreign Languages (European Department) and MA in French and French Literature in NY. I also completed the French courses in the French Alliance Center in NY, which allowed me to broaden my language skills.

I have been teaching French for all age groups (beginning from 3 years old kids to the adult advanced level) for more than 15 years and I am really happy to provide my students with the experience and skills I have acquired for all the years.

I have worked with the kids of all the age groups in USA creating cooperative learning, hands-on and minds-on approach. I also participated in "Write-to-Read" program in California and used these methods to encourage reading/writing at home, parent involvement, and listening/speaking/writing skills. I always try to create an individual approach to every child to develop his/her unique language skills and personal perception. While working with the adult groups I performed the cooperative group work and language development.

I am happy to share my experience and my love for French with all students and their families. Merci!

Yelena's grandson is an amazing student. He always demonstrates his great concern and interest in observing as more Russian information as possible. He looks extremely interested in all Russian topics covered during the lessons. New topics as Hobby, Sports, Leisure, Times are coming for the next lessons. Looking forward to continuing my lessons with him!
