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!

Excellent French Tutor

We really enjoyed our French lesson with Elena. She went through the basics with us in our first lesson and made sure that we understood everything. She is a very good teacher, we definitely recommend!

Thank you, Max and Sophia! It was a pleasure to meet with you. I will be more than happy to provide you with my French skills and teaching experience!

Very patient and inspiring

Once again Elena is so amazing and has helped my daughter so much! Her knowledge and ability to teach has brought up my daughters French grade

Tutor responded:

Thank you for a positive feedback, Christine. Your daughter is a very pleasant and nice student to work with. I am looking forward to meeting with her next time to demonstrate all my best skills and abilities.

Great Russian teacher

We had a good time and she understood my language level and desire to bring my Russian back to a better fluency. She came on time, was very professional and addressed my concerns for improvement. She also teaches French. I plan to meet with her again for more lessons.

Nice Personality Combined With Great Skills

Very happy New Year to our most talented and creative tutor, Elena. Our little Antonio loves it more and more – all those happy songs and fun-filled Russian lessons prepared by Elena. He is so excited to start another year of learning and exploring of his family’s native language. We really appreciate everything that Elena is bringing to his life. Best wishes from Koval’s and Belmonte’s families.
