Learning Programs at Elite French Tutoring
Here is a quick overview of the programs offered at Elite French Tutoring!
French Classes for Adults
Whether you are a college student or pursuing a career, the program is designed to accommodate your busy schedule and lifestyle. Elite French Tutoring works with you to maximize your personal convenience.
The lessons focus on conversation, pronunciation, and confidence-building in helping you to speak French fluently and effectively. We put strong emphasis on a sound grasp of grammar, sentence structure and the development of an authentic French accent.
French Classes for Children
Your children can learn French in the same convenient and effective way as adults. Learning a major foreign language like French opens a host of possibilities for a students or young child. Learning French at a young age inculcates skills that are transferable to other languages, making each subsequent language (depending on the degree of difficulty) easier to learn. Your child can learn French so as to complement another language he or she may be studying at school (Spanish, for example), or, if French is part his or her school curriculum, private lessons through EFT can give the child a significant boost and help him or get get better grades.
The study of a foreign language has considerable ramifications for a child. He or she absorbs not only the language, but the treasure-house of culture and history that goes with it. It is a very significant growth experience that will stand him or her in good stead for years to come.
French Classes for Companies and Organizations
Elite French Tutoring is happy to work with companies seeking lessons for individual or groups of employees. As with our private lessons, we offer them in person or online. For the time being, our in-person lessons for companies are restricted to New York and Washington.

Our programs are designed to benefit employees who may be preparing to relocate to a Francophone country or do business in one.
Duration of Lessons at Elite French Tutoring and Interface
All clients have the choice of having lessons that last for 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. For beginners with little to no experience in French, we find the student gets the best results by starting with weekly lessons of a least one hour. Much of course depends on the student’s schedule and resources.
