Foreign Language Tutoring

Serving Northern Virginia and Washington, DC

Many students feel that they are incapable of learning a foreign language. Classes in school can move very quickly, require a great deal of memorization, and provide very little feedback from the teacher due to the size of the class.

Additionally, your child may feel very self-conscious trying to speak in the target language in front of peers. All of these factors can create a stressful experience that causes students to give up language learning as soon as they are no longer required to take the class.

Our foreign language tutors are proficient or fluent in their designated language and have ample teaching experience. They are invested in not only getting students to learn the target language but to enjoy the process. By providing highly customized, dynamic lessons in a one-on-one setting, our tutors will will help your child develop the following skills:



I cannot say enough amazing words about Miss Cindy and what a perfect match EC made when you placed her and Nico together. He has thrived over the last 18+months with the consistent, focused engagement that Miss Cindy has provided. She is patient, kind, motivating and I have seen firsthand the talent and professionalism she brings to her tutoring. Essentially she has been a tremendous part of Nico's continued success in learning and a special person to our entire family. While we know Nico will struggle to learn, he has worked so hard and we as parents and his teachers at school see his great progress....and that is only through him working so hard and others believing in him. His teachers and supporters including Miss Cindy have made the difference and for this, we are profoundly grateful and hopeful. Nico is a beautiful and bright boy who is full of life and love and we will continue to support him in every way possible.

I am compelled to tell you how incredible Ashley is as a tutor. Let's start with the fact that she arrived every day on time and got right down to business and she stayed until the hour ended, every time. Ashley is someone who has a gift. She knows exactly how to take concepts and pull them off the page to help students learn. For example, she once came into the kitchen and asked for a glass of water to dramatize volume to our child. She would often tell our child, "I showed you how to do it, now I want you to teach it back to me." She never came unprepared, she always had worksheets, problems for our child to work on in case there was not much math homework or a quiz to study for. Her goal was always to make sure that our child truly understood the concepts that they were working on. It has made a world of difference to our child to have Ashley's support and knowledge.
