Level Assessment

We begin by assessing your level of French, usually in a 10-20 minute telephone conversation. This service is free of charge.


Then, in consultation with you, we create a customized program that fits your needs. Vocabulary, grammar, and context are tailored to your specific learning needs and goals. Engaging, yet rigorous, methods are utilized to support successful French mastery.

We provide regular feedback to students on their progress and areas for improvement, including, where children are concerned, with their parents.

We provide private French lessons throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the other boroughs. Our tutors can come to your home, office, or other location, as you wish.

We also provide French classes online on a global basis irrespective of location.

 Teaching Methodology

  • Level Assessment 

Your journey with Elite French Tutoring starts when one of our experts assesses your level of French in a telephone conversation. After a 10-to-20-minute chat, he or she is able to recommend which course is best suited your level.


  • Devise a Customized Program 

Whatever your level, you will be able to customize your program. Your tutor will help you determine the optimal timeline of your program, the degree to which you need to review grammar depending on your level of French, and kind of vocabulary you will concentrate on in your lessons depending on your professional needs and/or personal interests — business, finance, diplomacy, journalism, the arts, etc.

Whether you are a student or a seasoned professional or just someone who aspires to speak French well for the pleasure it gives, you can integrate learning with your daily routine – and EFT is committed to helping you do so. We have lots of experience accommodating the schedules of busy clients. Your tutor will regularly assess your performance, suggest areas for improvement, help you tackle weaknesses.   We provide these services for adults and children alike.

Learning Programs at EFT

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.

Whether the client is a private company, NGO, or public organization, Elite French Tutoring tailors its program to the company’s needs, including stressing industry-specific vocabulary, situational role-playing and incorporating information about relevant Francophone markets. 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 and Interface 

All clients have the choice of having lessons that last for 40 minutes to 2 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.

Note that you can choose the interface that suits you.
