customized lessons

Customized Tutoring

For students learning French in Boston, we stress that each lesson is customized to each student’s skill level. In some cases, I give a test to new students during our first session. This way, I know just what each student requires for learning French and can tailor the learning program appropriately. I recommend two to three classes per week, one to one and a half hours each time. Each week’s lesson begins with a review of the last week’s class before moving on to new material.

About Me

My Philosophy

Bienvenue! I am Svetlana and I have been tutoring French for 25 years. I offer customized, private French classes in Boston for students at every level – beginner, intermediate, and advanced. My lessons are personalized and I pay my utmost attention to the particular objectives of each student.

I am a French language teacher by training and after having received my Master’s degree in Education, I have been teaching French in various universities and colleges and have been offering private lessons.

Language is a great communicator of human nature. Teaching a language brings other cultures alive while helping students with developing memory and discipline. It also, widens student’s horizons. Imparting the skills of learning a language to another is like watching a beginning dancer step on the toes of the instructor, but after a few one-two-threes the beginner starts to swing and sway to the rhythm of the instructor – its symbiotic. Learning a language is like that. Soon students are stringing words and phrases together like steps of a dance. It is so rewarding to see students make progress, while enjoying the learning experience.

I always felt that teaching was the noblest of professions. I still feel that way, today.
