Founded by Elodie Herelle, an experienced and dedicated native French instructor, French AnyWay is an unequaled French tutoring concept. Exclusive, adaptable, the French AnyWay method allows students to excel in French academically and adult learners and students to communicate in French with ease. The lessons are in private or group settings in our Brooklyn (649 Morgan Avenue) and Manhattan (90 Broad Street) locations, at your home or office and online via Skype. The online setting gives you the opportunity to communicate with French native instructors flexibly. In any case, whether online or in-person, with French AnyWay, students get efficient French lessons right from the comfort of their home or their office*!
* For individual in-person lessons we meet you wherever you feel: Coffee Shops, Book shops, lounges, parks, and libraries.
For group in-person lessons, we'll see you in one of our spaces in NYC.
All instructors are carefully selected. Each instructor is a native French speaker, who is highly-qualified, results-driven and friendly. They all have a great pedagogical sense and a passion for helping students learn and communicate in French.
French Anyway instructors are either certified French teachers, graduated with a Master's Degree or artists strategically using their art (songs, theatrical dialogs) to give confidence to students to speak French comfortably. They all are experts of the French language and have years of experience, success and track records in teaching French, making students converse in French and, for a majority of them*, pass tests with strong scores.
*Students taking tests such as SAT, AP, Baccalaureat will be matched with teachers that have extensive experience and track records in helping students passing these tests. Corporate students will be matched with teachers that have worked in the corporate world - former sales or marketing executives turned successful certified teachers.
