In-person language lessons with a tutor can be a great experience, but if you're unable to find an affordable private French tutor in Geneva, online learning may be a good option for you. To take lessons with a French tutor in your area, you may have to pay more to cover their travel costs or travel to their home, and the average cost of private French lessons in Geneva is over $20 per hour. With online learning, you can save on travel expenses and have access to top tutors from around the world.
Many students who try online language lessons with a tutor are pleasantly surprised by the experience. At LanguaTalk, lessons are 1-on-1 to ensure you get your tutor's full attention and can make rapid progress. Lessons are conducted via video call, allowing you to communicate with your tutor and share learning materials, as if you were in the same room. Give it a try with a free trial session and see for yourself!
You can watch French tutor intro videos, check their availability, and read reviews from their students on their profiles. You'll also see which learning needs, ages, and levels the tutor is comfortable with.
Are you new to LanguaTalk? When you sign up, you'll get a token for a complimentary 30-minute trial lesson. Use this to meet your chosen tutor and decide whether you want to keep taking classes with them or look for a French tutor in Geneva instead. (Please note: not all tutors offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their regular lesson price.)
I am Chantal, a native French speaker. I also speak English fluently, and I have some knowledge of Spanish. I have been a Certified Secondary School Teacher for 20+ years, and I am still just as passionate about teaching!
Together, we can practice the four skills of language learning: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Having learned two languages myself, I understand how intimidating language classes can sometimes be. That’s why I craft your lessons according to your level, and personal needs.
I provide the material and tools you need, and I am open to any suggestions in terms of material or topics. I use pictures, videos, songs, articles, and more to make the lessons varied and enriching.
I offer a friendly environment, where you can have fun, make mistakes, retry, and learn at your own pace.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me better. I look forward to seeing you in class.See Reviews From Students
Hello ! My name is Charlotte, from France. Learning languages is a passion of mine, along with many others :-) I welcome everyone to come and learn with me; whatever your current level, I’ll be very happy to help you gain more fluency in French. I’m very patient and will provide a cheerful and safe environment where you can talk without any stress or fear of being judged. I try to stick to French as much as possible during the lessons in order to build up your confidence about being able to navigate through your new language.
I believe in helping you master French as it is spoken/written by actual French-speaking people, not textbooks. This means adapting the material and language level to the situation. Indeed, we don’t usually speak in daily life the way a journalist does on the news. And we don’t write a formal report as we would an email to a friend. So knowing your goals and why you are learning French is essential.
A bientôt !See Reviews From Students
***Note : Thanks for all your trust, I'm very grateful. Please, note that my calendar is very tight on this platform, don't hesitate to book in advance your lessons to avoid seing your slot already taken or send me an email if you don't see your normal time on the calendar. ***
Hi, I'm Sabrina, I was born in Bayonne but my studies in French Literature and French as a Foreign Language led me to live and work in different places and countries, to many students of all ages and levels !
That's why I would be delighted to teach my French language, whether you need it for your work, your studies, to pass your DELF/DALF examens, to brush up your grammar or to master the "art de la conversation". I always tailor my lesson, based on your level, your goals and your interests.
As a creative person, I try to use that part of my personality to make our lesson fun yet efficient, in a relaxed atmosphere where you feel confident to speak and explore French. This is the time where you have the ability to speak French as much as possible.
I’m always in search for new material (articles, songs, podcasts, games…) to work on, trying as much as possible to use authentic material and any tools (Google Docs, screenshare, slides…) that seem adequate to learn the language French people actually speak.
I've got loads of texbooks as well, where I like to extract interesting texts or drills to make you practise when it seems relevant to do so.
What's important to me is that each online lesson is a place and time where you can feel confident to speak in French, in a relaxed atmosphere where you can explore our beautiful language and culture.
I am a very easy-going, passionate and good-natured person, keen in many different subjects and aspects of our life. When I'm not teaching, I like reading, watching movies, writing, walking, traveling, practising yoga, doing theater and struggling on my guitar ! (To only name a few)
Looking forward to meeting you on this platform and learning together !
Au plaisir !

Hello, my name is Marvin, I am French but I live in Galicia, west of Spain. I have been an online teacher for three years now during which I have given more than 1600 lessons. Also, I am currently finishing my master's degree in didactics to teach French. And before that, I graduated from the Alliance Française to be certified as a professional teacher.
During my lessons, I know how to be flexible to adapt to your needs and your personality. If you want conversation classes, we can discuss freely or prepare the session through an article or any other authentic document and I will bring you the necessary corrections over the course of the exchange. If you are looking to improve a particular language point, my goal will be to expose you to it and help you determine how it works. In addition, thanks to my knowledge of the different levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, I can adapt my level of French as well as the topics worked on to each person. My students highlight that I am very patient and also reactive and precise in answering their various questions.
I myself have experience in language learning. I speak English and Spanish at an advanced level, I have some notions of German and Japanese and I am currently learning Galician. I am therefore aware of the different stages in learning a language and I will be able to help you both from my point of view as a teacher and as a student.See Reviews From Students
I wasn’t always a French tutor. I have been working with and for various companies for over 15 years.
I am passionate about languages since my youngest years. During my long stays abroad, I used to teach my roommates and friends. A few years ago, I decided to teach my native language in a more formal way. I started on a volunteering basis, teaching French to migrants.
After a while, I felt the need to improve my mastery of French teaching. That’s the reason why I decided to get a certification with the Cavilam Alliance Française of Vichy. There, I was trained according to the action-oriented approach recommended by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
As a certified teacher, I am able to provide you with customised, dynamic, playful lessons based on your individual needs. My goal is also to help you to learn how to learn with pleasure! Whatever your level or goals are, we will build up, together, the best learning plan for yourself.

Bonjour a tous!!
Are you planning to move to a French-speaking country? Do you want to improve your language skills? Do you wish to embrace a new culture? I am here to help you, from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world!
My name is Alizee, I am from Bretagne, France, the land of butter and cider!
I have been a language teacher since 2014. I graduated from the University of Oregon in the US with a Master of arts (French culture and Literature) and then I got a bachelor of Teaching French as a 2nd language from the University of Nantes, France. I started teaching at the University of Oregon as a GTF and it helped me find my path, teaching became a part of my identity and I really found myself thanks to this experience. Afterwards, I started to travel around south east Asia and moved to Vietnam and started teaching English to Vietnamese students. I started teaching French online when I moved to the Philippines in 2019, and have continued since in several countries such as Canada and France.
I provide personalized online classes, based on your level (from A1 to C2), your goals and your interests. Each class will include grammatical introductions/reminders, listening comprehension but most of all speaking practice. If you are planning to take the DELF exam, I can also help! Homework will be provided outside of class to not waste time during the lesson. From daily life situations, to current events and news, we will have a wide range of different topics.

My name is Marina. I have been a French teacher for five years. I taught in Ireland, England, Spain, and Ecuador, with students of all ages and levels, and in settings both informal and formal. I'm new to LanguaTalk but I've been teaching French online for a year as well.
I offer different forms of teaching, depending on your level and preferred learning methods. For example, a beginner who needs structure might benefit from lessons from a written method that mixes grammar, vocabulary, and listening, speaking, reading and writing exercises, while a more advanced student would prefer us to focus on conversation.
Don't hesitate to book a trial session with me so we can get to know each other!
Me llamo Marina. Soy profesora de francés desde hace cinco años. Enseñé en Irlanda, Inglaterra, España y Ecuador, con estudiantes de todas las edades y niveles, y en entornos formales e informales. Soy nueva en LanguaTalk, pero también llevo un año enseñando francés en línea.
Ofrezco diferentes formas de enseñanza, según tu nivel y tus métodos de aprendizaje favoritos. Por ejemplo, un principiante que necesita estructura podría beneficiarse de lecciones gracias a un método escrito que combina gramática, vocabulario y ejercicios de comprensión y expresión escrita y oral, mientras que un estudiante más avanzado preferiría que nos concentremos en la discusión.
No dudes en reservar una lección conmigo.See Reviews From Students
Hi! I'm Méloée, I am 25 and I've been teaching French since 2015. I lived for 7 years in Argentina and I live now in France, my home country, so I can teach you in French, English or Spanish.
I teach to all levels and ages. Conversation classes, to prepare a trip, an exam, to learn from zero, to practice grammar... we'll see together what are your goals and preferences and I'll tailor my lessons to you.
In my experience the quickest and best way to progress is speaking and practicing a lot, so I always try to include a lot of practice in my lessons.
For example, a class may start with a text or video (more or less difficult depending on your level) to practice comprehension, then I'll ask you some specific questions about the document to see if you understood well and see the new vocabulary. Then I'll ask more generic questions around the theme of the video/text, so you talk about your opinion on the subject, related experiences... This way, you'll speak a lot and it allows me to identify easily if you may need some theoretical exercises on specific points.
I will always build my classes depending on your needs. If you are confortable using specifics learning methods or material, let me know and we will plan something together.
Let me you know if you have any questions, and I hope to see you soon!See Reviews From Students
Originally from Paris, where I trained and taught French to both school students and adult learners, I also studied in London and worked in Scotland. I'm currently based in Spain. I have vast experience in teaching in-person and online.
I am a friendly, positive, patient and adaptable teacher. Lessons are taught in a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere. For me, teaching is a ongoing passion and my aim is to encourage you and build your confidence. All lessons are tailored to each student's specific requirements, skills and objectives. My guiding principle is that learning should be a fun, passionate and pleasant adventure.See Reviews From Students
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private French lessons in Geneva is between $25-$35. Since online tutors don't have to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, their hourly rate tends to be significantly lower.
If you prefer in-person lessons over online learning, LanguaTalk may not be the best fit for you. Instead, you can search for a tutor on a local service listing website or place an advertisement in your area. However, we do encourage you to try online learning – you have nothing to lose by booking a free trial session. Many students find that the online experience is just as good as in-person learning, with the added benefit of access to higher quality tutors at a lower cost.
Some students might be unsure about learning French online because they think it will be very different from in-person learning. However, many students find that the online experience is similar and they often develop strong relationships with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your selected tutor, you'll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor may also share learning resources with you (such as newspaper articles or YouTube videos) and you'll be able to collaborate in real-time using tools like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person lessons in Geneva, but most only offer online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. Additionally, most tutors are not located in Geneva because they are living elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that the lesson will be conducted online.
One of the benefits of online lessons is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, simply check their calendar to ensure that they have times that fit your schedule. Some tutors may have limited availability due to high demand.
Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. If this option is available, it will be noted on the tutor's profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, 55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. 30-minute lessons may be suitable if you're taking lessons for your child or if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
Lessons are taught one-on-one to ensure that you receive customized instruction. During the lessons, your tutor will use a variety of teaching methods and resources, including language exercises, conversation practice, and cultural notes, to help you reach your learning objectives.
All lessons take place via video call. Your tutor will normally give you a choice of calling tools, all of which are easy to use.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If a tutor does not offer a free trial, the trial price will be 30 percent of their full lesson price, allowing you to still try a session at a reduced cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to determine if the tutor is a good fit for you and get a sense of what online learning is like. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so that they can tailor any lessons you choose to take. You'll be encouraged to speak as much as possible in French, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
LanguaTalk offers personalized 1-on-1 French lessons with top-rated tutors. Here's how to get started:
