New York City / Private Lessons

Our private language lessons are for those looking for a highly effective, personalized learning experience. With your goals as our priority, we’ll match you with an expert instructor and customize a curriculum just for you.

We’ll do our best to accommodate your busy schedule and strive to make it as easy as possible on you by suggesting a mutually convenient location for you and your instructor. We offer these one-on-one private lessons in 10 languages (see below for options).

A Personalized Learning Experience

Our private lessons packages are never “off the shelf.” We start with a robust intake questionnaire about your learning goals, preferences, schedule and learning style. Taking all of this into account, we provide you with a fully custom learning experience.

PERSONAL STYLE

Since you have your instructor’s undivided attention, you’ll be able to move at your own pace, have an open dialogue and learn in a style that suits you.

CONVERSATION FIRST

Speaking is at the heart of all of our programs and in a private, immersive setting, you’ll get even more opportunity to practice critical speaking and listening skills.

“I was matched with a wonderful teacher. She is thoughtful, kind, and very prepared for each lesson. She gently pushes me to deepen my study and motivation. I leave each lesson feeling revived and like my brain has gotten a workout.”
- Kate R., Brooklyn, NY

Here's what to expect

Step 1

All About You

Through our intake questionnaire, we’ll get to know your personal goals, experience and preferences for learning style and speed. We use all of this to help find you a great teacher as well as craft a personalized experience that’ll drive results.

Step 2

The Perfect Match

After you’ve chosen a package that suits your needs and made your first payment, we’ll match you with the perfect teacher to help you achieve your goals. This process timeline can vary depending on the language of choice, but we strive to match you in a week or less. We do require up-front payment so that we can lock in the best possible teacher for your lessons and reserve the time on his or her calendar.

Step 3

Custom Everything

As our private lessons are personalized to you and your goals, we do not have a set curriculum that we use. We’ll work with you to create a custom curriculum that best suits your needs. Your teacher will then refine the curriculum throughout the program based on your progress and feedback.

item.title

Step 4

Flexible Formats

Based on your preferences, we’ll suggest times, locations, length of lessons that we think will optimize your experience. That said, we’re more than happy to work with you both on the initial set-up and if you’d like to make any changes throughout the program.

All hours in a 12 or 25 hour private lesson package must be redeemed within 6 months of purchase. 45 and 60 hours private lessons packages have one year to use all of your lessons. Discounts or promotions which are not explicitly stated for use on in-person private lessons packages may not be used when purchasing a private lessons package. Discounts and promotions cannot be combined. Only one person may attend a private lesson and it must be the same person throughout the program. While we do strive to be flexible in scheduling, note that the more regular your schedule is, the faster it will be to match you with a teacher.

We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we're typically asked, along with our responses

Where are lessons held?

The lessons are held at the most convenient location for you within the city - at your home, office, or a public cafe/library recommended by us in the area of your choice! If you can't meet in person, we're happy to set up your lessons through live video chat.

What materials or textbooks do I need?

Once you've had your first lesson with your Private Teacher, they will recommend materials that will help you hit your language learning goals.

How long is a Private Lesson?

Length of lessons is totally dependent on you! We recommend all students start with 1.5 hours with their Private Lessons Teacher. If this feels like too long or short of a session, we can always revisit your schedule.

Can I cancel a lesson at anytime?

We totally understand that life happens and you may need to cancel a private lesson. We ask you to give your teacher and your Private Lessons Advisor 24 hours notice.

Can I pick the teacher I take Private Lessons with?

Your Private Lessons Language Advisor will match you with the teacher we feel is best for you. We'll share their background and strengths with you before we book your first lesson!

Do Private Lessons packages expire?

Yes they do! The 12 and 25 hour packages expire in 6 months. You have a full calendar year to use your 45 and 60 hour packages before they expire.
