PRIVATE LESSONS

  • Private lessons, regular or AP (Advanced Placement for high school), are one-on-one and ongoing.
  • Advanced Placement (AP) Instruction is tailor-made to help teenagers prepare for the AP French Language and Culture exam.
  • Sessions are one month (4 or 5 lessons,  a 3-lesson minimum) paid in advance.
  • We charge $50/hour for tutoring at the Alliance. The cost is $60/hour if the teacher travels to the student (within a 10-mile radius of the Alliance) to defray transportation costs for the teacher.  EXCEPTION:  On occasion, the instructor and the student live closer to each other than they do to the AFSR Foyer. In such circumstances, and since the instructor does not have to be reimbursed for traveling expenses, the student will not be asked to pay an additional fee for off-site tutoring.
