italki teacher since Sep 22, 2021
My name is Luke Horton and I am currently a postgraduate student living in New York City. I was born and raised in Paris until I moved to New York when I was around 10 years old. I have a Parisian accent in French and a New York accent in English. I have been in the higher education system for 6 years now and I love teaching different subjects to my peers and helping them as well through their academic work. I am bilingual in French and English and I believe that Italki is a great way to help people learn and perfect languages in a direct and non-judgmental manner!
Me as a Teacher
I am a very flexible teacher meaning that I take into account what you want to learn and I strive to understand what exactly you need to perfect in order to reach your goals. I am also non-judgemental as I have moved to several countries so far and have always cherished the warm hospitality received. As a teacher on Italki, I also know that you are trying to learn as much as possible; thus, I will help you become fluent outside of classes by recommending you books, articles, tv shows, movies, or other quality media in the taught language.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are very conversation-based and I will be helping you talk with ease as if you were in a real-life scenario. I am also very keen to help you develop vocabulary on subjects that are interesting to you. Every class, I will read an article or interact with media content with you outside of class so that we can both talk about it and discuss the themes/subjects in it. My goal is to bring out the best version of you possible in another language!

Wow!! It was an absolute pleasure having a lesson with Luke. His friendly personality instantly puts you at ease. He is such a fantastic conversationalist that the time together flies quickly. His teaching style is relaxed, engaged, and encouraging. I'm so happy to have found another excellent French teacher. I'm looking forward to having another lesson together soon!!

Had an awesome time learning French with Luke. He’s quite patient with beginners and can easily shift to English when needed. Will definitely book more sessions!

I consider Luke a friend. He is very patient and supportive, helping where needed but allowing a lot of freedom to the student to do his/her best with the language.

I love it when Luke and I pick a topic and maybe some statements to discuss. We always have our own interesting points of view to share. It just so happens to be in French :)

Understanding the spoken word in French is the hardest thing for me, but Luke speaks very slowly and clearly and he doesn't mind repeating things if I have trouble understanding what he's saying. He really wants to help and he explains things very well. An engaging individual who is very enthusiastic about teaching. Five stars.
