About Lisa


Bio

My name is Lisa, I am a French native and I studied French literature at La Sorbonne in Paris. After graduating from La Sorbonne, I completed a master in Performing Arts in France as well. I tutored French students for many years and worked in an art agency in Paris. Therefore I can share a lot about the French culture and customs. I worked very closely with artists and musicians for 4 years before moving to the U.S. in 2004. I currently work at an art agency and I manage...

My name is Lisa, I am a French native and I studied French literature at La Sorbonne in Paris. After graduating from La Sorbonne, I completed a master in Performing Arts in France as well. I tutored French students for many years and worked in an art agency in Paris. Therefore I can share a lot about the French culture and customs. I worked very closely with artists and musicians for 4 years before moving to the U.S. in 2004. I currently work at an art agency and I manage illustrators.

Knowing how challenging it is to learn a new language, I can adapt my lessons depending on your requirements and teach conversation, pronunciation, grammar, reading, literature and French culture.
I can also help you with homework, review for a test or prepare you for the French AP and SAT exams.
I have a lot of experience with both these exams and really enjoying working on them.
I am also familiar with the French Praxis exam: World Language 5174.

I worked for 2 years at the French Institute in NYC with children, teenagers and adults, and I tutored students from various Middle Schools and High Schools in Princeton NJ for 8 years (Hun School, Lawrenceville Prep School, Peddie School). I now live in NYC and tutor middle school and high school students (Horace Mann, Hunter, El Ro) and college students as well.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best teacher EVER!!!!

Lisa is the best French teacher I've ever seen. She has a lot of different worksheets that can improve your conjugation! She also knows a lot of tricks to help you remember really difficult things.

Liam, 36 lessons with Lisa

Helpful homework, new info building on old info every time

You will leave each lesson knowing a bit more about France, be it pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, or French school systems, the French sense of humor, or French literature.

Audrey, 3 lessons with Lisa

Great AP French Exam Prep

Lisa is helping my daughters to prepare for this exam! Wonderful information and guided practice! This is reducing everyone’s stress level! Lisa is positive and motivating.

Denna, 8 lessons with Lisa

Very experienced teacher.

I just had my first lesson with Lisa. Lisa was punctual, well prepared, and eager to know my needs. I am going to take AP French next year and Lisa seems like a good teacher who is knowledgeable about the test.

Junghee, 8 lessons with Lisa

Wonderful French tutor

My son has had 8 sessions with Lisa so far, and she has been amazing! He started French this year in school (6th grade) and was struggling. Lisa has improved his self-confidence and his test/ quiz scores. We feel very fortunate to have found her. We have had several tutors in the past and finding the right fit is essential. Lisa would be a great fit for anyone. She is absolutely amazing!

Melody, 50 lessons with Lisa

Knowledgeable, patient, calm, very nice

Very patient, very clear with instruction and belief in the student, instilling confidence. On point with the requirements we asked for.

Kate, 14 lessons with Lisa

Helpful Native Speaker

Several large concepts are covered during my school's, weekly, three hour class periods. Always with patience, Lisa breaks down each concept with different approaches until I understand it. We review and practice. She is calm and has a pleasant disposition.

Brooke, 28 lessons with Lisa

Knowledgeable tutor.

Lisa doesn't waste your time. She gets right to the point and makes sure that your lesson is helpful all the way through. She always gives feedback and has given me loads of tools to study with on my own to perfect my French.

Lori-Anne, 4 lessons with Lisa

An excellent tutor.

I met with Lisa once per week from September through December. I was a beginner level student and very much enjoyed our sessions. I was very happy to be taught by a native speaker and I learned a great deal including some knowledge of French culture and customs. Lisa was very calm and patient. She provided a good learning environment including a number of study aides via computer. I recommend Lisa as a French tutor par excellence.
