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.)
Bonjour, my name is Adele, and I am a native French speaker.
About me :
I was born and raised in a suburb of Paris before starting to travel at the age of 20. I moved to Thailand five and a half years ago and haven't left since! I have been teaching English and French for over 5 years now. I love traveling, riding motorcycles, baking, reading, working out, and upcycling clothes. I am fluent in English, I can speak Thai and I recently started learning reading and writing in Thai.
Me as a teacher :
I am patient and dedicated to my student’s improvements. I follow your objectives and adapt to your needs. I can teach grammar or vocabulary, we can work on your conversation skills, your pronunciation or improve your listening skills, choose what suits you best ! I give you the tools that you can use outside of the classroom.
In my lessons, the course material I provide is a Google Slide I create and design myself depending on your level and needs. I include worksheets, textbook pages, news articles, and I also send links for audio and video files and more. Once I share the link of the Google Slide, it is accessible to you anytime you want to review the notes and do the homework and you are able to edit the document or add text or documents, etc.
I love learning languages and I understand the challenges that can arise when doing so. I believe the keys are to enjoy the process, have fun and be consistent.See Reviews From Students
I am born and raised in France. I live in Paris. I love History, films, economics and travels.
If you like French movies, and would like to discover the French cinema, I am the one. For the students who are interested, I give a movie to watch regularly.
I have a BA in Management from SKEMA Business School and a Master degree in International and European Management from NEOMA Business School.
I used to live in the USA for a while (Miami) and also in the United Arabic Emirates where I started to teach French from A1 to C2. I have been teaching since 2006.
I am dedicated, teach by passion and I am so proud of my students. When I moved to the Middle East, I gave one to one lesson and also group lessons with people from different nationalities and languages : Dutch, German, Arabic, English, Spanish, Chinese... I understand the different struggles depending on your native language. Learning foreign languages myself, I understand even better! I teach also children and I am also also tutoring foreign children living in France who have 3 months to immerse in French classes.
I like teaching French. Confidence is very important. My method is based on 30 min exercices, grammar, conjugation and 30 min conversation based on a short video for the listenning. If you are a beginner, you will wait 3-4 lessons before doing this exercice, but don't worry, you will speak speak anyway. I hope to see you soon.See Reviews From Students
🇨🇦 I am a French-speaking Quebecer and I have been a teacher of French as a Foreign Language for several years. I teach online in different language schools and web platforms. I offer dynamic and playful classes where conversation and fun are the order of the day!
✈️ In addition to teaching, I work in translation, tutoring and responsible tourism. I am a digital nomad and I have been traveling the world for a few years. I am passionate about travel, outdoors, social dancing, cooking, personal development, culture and of course linguistics and learning!
👩🏻🏫 My teaching methods are very varied and focused on the practical and participative approach. We will cover grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and linguistic idiosyncrasies which we will practice in conversation activities.
🎯 My main goal is to create a comfortable and fun environment that helps one gain fluency and confidence with the language. All mistakes are welcome, as they are fundamental to the learning process and an opportunity to learn something new! Whether it's for a trip, a move abroad, a professional project or just personal curiosity, I adapt to the level and needs of each learner.
🗓️ My availability is flexible and variable. For organizational purposes, you will find only one time slot available on my calendar, but I am available Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm (EST). However, write to me and I will be happy to answer your questions and set up a personalized schedule with you.See Reviews From Students
Hi ! I am Charlotte !
I am a native french speaker and a graduated French teacher !
If you want to learn french or to improve your french skills, you are in the right place 😉
What I teach 📚:
How I teach 👩🏫:
I like to create lessons around a theme (the news, french events, everyday life, ...), this way I can gather different activities around it.
For example, we will start with a few questions about the theme, then gather vocabulary and read a text or watch a video about it. Afterward you will have a few questions to answer about the doct to iniciate a discussion about it. I always write your answers on the document to add corrections (if necessary) and to give you gentle feedback without interrupting you. Sometimes, I also like to implement speaking games at the end of the lesson so you can talk french in a more independent and ludic way !
I usually use Google Docs and/or Powerpoint for my lessons, according to what I am going to teach (for example if I need to share a digital media with you, I will put it on your personal Google Doct). Each student has his own Google Doct that we use for each lesson. I usually send you the link to your Doct after our first lesson !
I graduated my FLE master's degree, I also have a BA degree in French language and literature and a BA degree in English language, literature, foreign and regional civilisation.See Reviews From Students

My name is Céline. Teaching languages online has been my full-time activity for the last 4 years, which ensures punctuality, professionalism, and continuity.
I am a multifaceted teacher:
> I am casual and I put particular importance on teaching real language, i.e. we will approach all kinds of vocabulary in our classes using authentic material.
> I am business and corporate-oriented as my previous professional experiences in retail and recruitment allow me to help you to build your CV and train you for job interviews.
> I am structured when it comes to grammar. I do use lessons and exercises.
> I have a solid academic background related to languages and experience preparing people for official language exams such as DELF, TCF, etc.
> I organize French immersion programs in France to help my students deepen their knowledge of the culture and feel more confident talking with native speakers.
These are some comments actual students posted on my LinkedIn profile:
Marc, Chief of Strategy and Corp. Development: “Céline is knowledgeable about grammar and language formalities but also has a nice conversation and adapts well to your need as a student, making the class enjoyable and using technology in the right way."

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to check my profile !
As a teacher, I’m very patient and caring. My goal is to provide you with a comfortable environment where we will turn any mistakes into a learning opportunity.
Lessons I teach :
1- Conversation classes
2- TEF Canada/ TCF Canada exam preparation classes : Speaking & Writing
3- French for beginners
In conversation classes, I’ll give you plenty of time to speak and I will provide you with detailed feedback that will help you get a better understanding of the use of French. I choose topics we can talk about during and plan lessons around them. However, you are very welcome to choose topics that fit your own interests.
For exam preparation classes, I will focus on improving your writing and speaking skills to help you reach the score you aim at. I have helped many students get the B2+ and more in TEF and TCF Canada exams.
As for beginners classes, we can use a manual or have informal classes.See Reviews From Students
Hello and welcome to my page !
My name is Célia, a native French teacher living in Germany. I have graduated of my master of French as a Foreign Language [teaching French to foreigners] in 2020 at the university of Paul-Valéry in Montpellier, and I became a DELF (A1-B2) corrector in 2022. I grew up in a small village next to Montpellier, and I have been living in Germany for the past 3 years.
During my master’s degree, I learned how to create didactic unit (lessons), exams, and how to use the CEFR (common European Framework of Reference for Languages). I have been teaching French online for the last 3 years to students ranging from level A1 to level B2, and students of all ages: children, teenagers, and adults. Whether you need some help with preparing an exam, want to build on your knowledge or just want to practice your oral skills, I am more than happy to help you!
During our first class, I will ask you: why you want to learn French, what are your goals, what are your interests, if you want to study one aspect of the language more than another, what is your current level of French etc. Our first conversation during our trial lesson will allow me to get an idea of your level and to prepare a plan for our next lessons. The resources I use are diverse: oral comprehension from the media, text comprehensions [studies of books, articles, extracts of text], grammar exercises etc. The resources are adapted to your level and your objectives. Most of the resources will be provided to you. I also provide a lesson file and homework for each lesson （- ＾ ▽ ＾ -).
My teaching method is mainly based on communicative and action-oriented approaches. My goal is to involve students as much as possible in their learning, to encourage them to express themselves as much as possible in French in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. I am aware that learning a language is not easy. Sometimes you fear making mistakes, but that's part of the learning process. I am here to help you gain self-confidence, encourage you and guide you on this journey of learning a language.
I am passionate about civilization and languages. Likewise, I love to share my culture with foreigners as I get to know theirs. I am sure we can find many interesting topics to discuss and build up your French skills quickly!
A bientôt!See Reviews From Students
Hello, how are you? My name is Sylvain, I'm 30 and from Belgium. I currently live in São Paulo, Brazil with my wife. I have a degree in management, but I've been working as a French teacher since I arrived in Brazil.
I did a university exchange in Chile, which helped me learn Spanish. I'm a curious person and I'm interested in almost every topic, but I particularly like talking about the economy, politics, technology and cultural differences between countries.After arriving in Brazil, an opportunity came up for me to work as a French teacher in a school for adults, where I worked for the first two years. After that, I decided to become self-employed and concentrate on one-to-one, in-company and online teaching. Today, I have students of all levels with different objectives (work, travel, pleasure, French language maintenance, diplomacy etc.) and I love it when they are satisfied and see themselves progressing. On top of that, I find it very interesting to be able to talk to people with different profiles, backgrounds and histories.
We will define the material to be used according to your specific needs. We'll work with a variety of materials such as:
-French language methods (Défi, Tout va bien, Alter Ego, etc.)
-Grammar/vocabulary books covering general themes or more specific to your objectives
-Recent articles, videos and audios on current topics
-Speaking or conversational exercices
See Reviews From Students
In addition, I try to stimulate the student to talk about different themes that are important to him/her.
I’m a native French speaker also fluent in English. I have a degree in psychology focused on Education. I started teaching French to kids from immigrant parents in France via a charity and I loved it ! In addition to two years experience with this project, I've been teaching French online for a year. I have students from all over the world with different levels, goals, and interests. I always adapt my teaching style to each of them to make classes interesting and personalized. I like to use English as little as possible and encourage communication in French.See Reviews From Students
Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Geneva, there are many options for learning French. You could use an app or a software program if you're looking to pick up basic vocabulary and learn some grammar rules. Alternatively, you could attend group lessons with French tutors in Geneva if you're keen for a social experience. Or, you could take 1-on-1 lessons with a private tutor. This isn't the cheapest way to learn a language but it's possibly the most effective, assuming you have a good tutor. Learning online rather than face-to-face may make private tutors a more affordable option. Check the tutor profiles above to see how much it's likely to cost. Prices vary a lot depending on the tutor, but will usually be cheaper than learning with a French tutor in Geneva, face-to-face.
Our research suggests that the average cost for private French lessons in Geneva is somewhere between $25-$35 per hour. As online tutors do not need to travel to you and they often live in countries with a lower cost of living, the hourly cost tends to be significantly lower.
If you're really not keen on learning with a teacher via video call, LanguaTalk isn't going to be the right choice for you. You can instead search for a tutor on a local service listing website, or put up an advert in your local area. We do encourage you to give it a try learning online though - you've got nothing to lose as you can book a free trial session. Most people find the experience is as good as learning face-to-face, but with the benefit of having access to better tutors at a lower cost.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning French online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Tutors on LanguaTalk sometimes provide lessons locally, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, most tutors are not teaching French in Geneva because they're living elsewhere in the world. If you decide to book with a tutor, you should assume that they can only teach you online.
On LanguaTalk, you can find exceptional tutors for 1-on-1 French lessons tailored to your goals and learning preferences. Here’s how to try it for yourself:
1 - Find your ideal tutor by browsing videos, reviews, pricing and availability.
2 - Book a trial. Many tutors offer a 30-minute trial for free; others charge a discounted price.
3 - Take personalised lessons with your new tutor via video call. Or try someone else.
No card is required to book a free trial session. Please only book if you're considering taking lessons. Pricing varies by tutor and you can use the filter to find someone who fits your budget. You can pay one lesson at a time, or buy in bulk for a discount (open a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).
We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the 'Help' button in the bottom-right. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have a lot of students.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever French tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
New to LanguaTalk? We'll give you a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in French as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
