Foreign Language Tutors in NYC - Ivy Tutors Network

Foreign Languages

Understanding and speaking foreign languages are life-long skills that serve both professionally and personally: you can take a job in a foreign country, or learn about little-known sites in new cities on an adventure by a local who speaks little English. But the learning curve can be steep. Many students abandon the will to learn a new language during the initial struggle phase. At IVY, we’re here to help you over that hurdle! We’re proud to work with many native speakers and tutors who have studied foreign languages at Ivy League or top-tier universities. Our tutors make language exciting with real-world examples, speaking and listening exercises, and the often-needed grammar refresh. But most importantly, our tutors are committed to getting those students struggling through beginners classes the right foundations so they have the drive to tackle the next levels that make knowing a foreign language fun and full of possibility. From Spanish, French, and Italian to Mandarin Chinese, Russian, German, Vietnamese, Danish, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Latin, and Greek, we offer one-on-one foreign language tutoring for all levels. Work with Ivy Tutors Network to learn a language from scratch or prep for Regents and APs, and be proud of how hard work translates into top scores!
