Foreign Language Tutoring

Virtual Tutoring for Families in Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Beyond

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 struggle to stay on track if their class is remote (completely or in part). 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 also to enjoy the process. By providing highly customized, dynamic lessons in a one-on-one virtual setting, our tutors will help your child develop the following skills:

Speaking

Working in a one-to-one setting and getting immediate feedback will allow your child to develop fluency, an authentic accent, and confidence to use the language beyond the classroom.

Listening

Through exposure to native-level speaking, your child will acquire vocabulary and learn to hone in on the important details in a conversation.

Reading

Our tutors will use high-interest, authentic materials to teach your child strong reading comprehension skills and develop a robust vocabulary.

Writing

By assigning dynamic writing tasks, our tutors encourage students to use vocabulary, develop fluency, and synthesize old and new concepts.

Grammar

Understanding grammar is central to being able to learn a new language.  Rather than explaining rules and drilling students on them, our tutors provide overt instruction to connect grammar topics with larger communication contexts.

Cultural Context

Language is not just about the words it contains. It is affected greatly by the people who use it. Our tutors help language come alive by teaching their students about the cultures that use it.
