Private classes give you the freedom of learning at your own pace and according to your own schedule. It is the most productive way to immerse yourself into a foreign language.

Small groups of up to 4 students is a very economical way of learning a foreign language. It also provides you with a lot of opportunity to practice your new language skills with fellow students under supervision.

I can tutor you with a schedule that suits your needs! My classes are built in units of 45 minutes and can be 2, 3, 4 or 5 units in duration. We can meet for lessons from once a week to every day. My total immersion program (at least 3 hours a day 5 days a week) is ideal for those who need fast results.
