Whether your child is having trouble with English courses in school, you're studying for an English exam (TOEFL, CAE, etc.), you're looking for distance homework or essay writing assistance, or you just want to brush up your English language skills, I'm here to help!  

A major advantage of tutoring is that each student can be treated as an individual.  I custom-create lesson plans, teaching aids, and other material based on a student's personality, learning rhythm, difficulties, and preferred teaching techniques.  My lessons can be whimsical and fun, or they can be more serious, with intense exercises in grammar and pronunciation - or why not a little bit of both?  

If you're looking for a way to maintain your level of English, I also offer one-on-one discussions, or conversation groups.

Lessons can be held in your home or office, or via phone or Internet.

In addition to my enthusiasm, I also have knowledge and experience. I've been helping people of all ages improve their language skills for more than a decade, and have worked in private homes, French elementary schools, and businesses.  

Here's what some of my former students and clients have to say:

Alysa is an extremely motivating tutor, thanks to her teaching qualities, her energy, her availability, her creativity in finding ways to make English interesting.  Alysa is also a person who listens to her students, who knows how to perfectly take into consideration each one’s particular needs and make them feel confident about themselves, which is essential for effective learning. - Louise

Alysa's lessons are a great combination of fun and structure. My sons loved working with her, and I saw an improvement in their English marks at school. - Laure S.
