Being a French native (from France), I have always enjoyed promoting the French culture. I have been teaching French for over ten years as a private one-on-one tutor to very young children, youth, and adults, including celebrities, in Los Angeles and in Germany.
As the French teacher in a private school in the Los Angeles area, I used to teach five classes a day from 7th grade (teaching of basic vocabulary) to 12th grade (role playing and shooting of a short movie in French).
Since I know the importance for you of succeeding to the SAT and AP tests, you can get a special training and coaching with some pre-tests and exams. Working as a team only success is allowed!
My goal is to help all my students maximize their potential learning with the right accent and pronunciation by using a proven method that brings real results.

Sylvie is an extremely efficient French tutor! She helped me zone in on my problem areas and helped me work through them. She is very direct and simultaneously very creative in her approach. She truly helped me succeed at both my oral and written exams. Highly recommended.
My son likes Sylvie and seems much more comfortable in his French class. Sylvie spends a lot of time with him and he really appreciates it.
Thanks a lot, Paige, for your very nice review!
My son is taking AP French but he was lacking some grammar because he took French 2 over the summer two years ago and they had to hurry through the book in 6 weeks. So our goal was to have Sylvie review and drill him on grammar and construction to fill in those important gaps and bring his writing up to AP speed with fewer mistakes. Sylvie has worked with my son for almost a month, often twice a week, and she's been excellent. We highly recommend her. My son says his grasp of French grammar has improved remarkably thanks to Sylvie and her intensive review. I only wish we had hired her 3 months ago!
She is also professional, personable, prompt, quick to respond to email, texts and phone calls, and patient and flexible when we have suddenly had to reschedule meetings due to his ever-evolving schedule.
Sylvie was wonderful - she focused on the student's needs. She worked with us only a couple of hours, but was very helpful.
I was very impressed with Sylvie G. and her knowledge of Paris and communities, as I'm going there for the first time this month. Thanks to Sylvie, I now feel more confident about my travels to Paris and surrounding areas. She made the language seem easy and very digestible! When choosing coaching for a particular subject such as French, I believe you should choose a native of that country as opposed to a coach from another, ie. Canada, as the particulars and nuances of France, only a true native can convey. I highly recommend Sylvie for that reason and because she's incredibly patient and understanding.
Sylvie is great with my daughter who is taking French 3 in an online class. She has suggested workbook material which has proven very helpful and works closely with her on her lessons. I only wish we had started with her months ago, it would have saved us from much of our frustrations.
Sylvie has been my daughter's tutor since May 2011 and she has helped her in innumerable ways; when they work on speaking assignments she is encouraging, clear and always patient. The online course is not perfect (missing language structure pieces here and there and truthfully some errors plus not having a text book can be challenging). Sylvie fills in those gaps and clarifies content, bettering my daughter's understanding, writing skills and pronunciation of the French language. I always enjoy overhearing their dialogue as they get along wonderfully and my daughter always looks forward to her lesson time. If you need a tutor, you need look no further - she will most assuredly bring you where you want to be in your understanding and speaking of the beautiful French language.
Sylvie has been tutoring my daughter in AP French for several months and she is terrific. It was hard to find a tutor that knew the AP French curriculum and Sylvie knows it well, my daughter loves her and she's doing well in the class. Sylvie is very dependable and even rearranges her schedule to make time when we need her -- all around the best tutor we have had in any subject!
Sylvie has all the qualities of a great tutor. She comes prepared with all her books and lesson plan and extremely professional in attire and attitude. She is very conscientious of time and makes every minute worthwhile. She makes learning a new language fun and I always look forward to our lessons every week. I am very proud and satisfied to have chosen her.
I feel very fortunate to have found Sylvie to tutor my son in French. I picked Sylvie because she is a native from France. I couldn't be more pleased with how it's working out. I started off with one time per week, but I liked her so much and felt that she was making a big difference, so I have her come twice per week to tutor my son and once to tutor me.
She has all the qualities that would want in a teacher; positive, nice and patient, while making it fun to learn.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
