From my first class through today, Roselyne has displayed a high level of professionalism. She has a great sense of humor and is very interested in my learning and progress in French - merci.
She structures my lessons according to my interests. And she supplements our lessons with real life assignments. She uses a wide range of learning tools (dialogues, videos, text book material, etc). I look forward to each and every class. I am extremely grateful to Roselyne for the patience she displays and her interest in my progress. She is indeed "fully French". French is her bailiwick. I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to learn French. A++++.
Ashley
Roselyne is an excellent instructor. She has a great sense of humour and is very flexible with her learning style. She provides follow-up handouts and things to work on. I am confident my french will improve by being taught by her.
Lin K.
Roselyne is very friendly yet professional, and knows how to teach the language. Depending on student's needs, she pulls off the best lesson material from a wealth of resources she has.

Susan is a fantastic and committed teacher.
Rachel
I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week.

She is very kind,knowledgeable teacher and she is very good with kids.
Highly recommend.

I've been working on my French weekly with Bene for the past couple months. It's been a lovely experience so far. Her classes have really helped me discover the French language and culture in a new way.

Bene is a very patient, creative, and dedicated teacher, and she's done an amazing job tailoring classes around my personal language goals. Every class, we work on expanding my vocabulary, improving conversational fluency and reading comprehension, with a bit of grammar practice built it as well.

I'd highly recommend Bene as a French tutor!

Over the years I’ve had many tutors, worked with many professors and teachers, and I have to say that Marie is by far in the top 5% of all educators that I’ve seemed guidance from. I’ve taken the GRE multiple times, yet was only a few points away from my required Verbal score. I saw the reviews that Marie had and decided that she would be the best person to help me achieve my goal and I was right. She worked with me to develop a study plan based on what worked best with my schedule rather than taking one size fits all approach to my learning. She took extra steps to send my daily assignments that were challenging and helped me grow. She took time to help me get to the root cause of why I wasn’t answering questions correctly by not just moving on to the next problem just because I got it correct. She really cares. We talked constantly and she was always there when I had a question day or night. I plan to apply her methods and all that I’ve learned from her while attending the university that I was recently accepted to! Thank you Marie! Anyone seeking a truly dedicated and inspiring tutor for GRE Verbal should definitely choose Marie. Simply the best!
Gabriel
First of all, Marie is a very pleasant person. Working with someone that is nice makes learning so much better. She immediately provided me with several new techniques for studying that will allow me to focus on the areas that I am struggling with. She broke information down to where it was easy for me to understand and reemphasized key points that she was teaching to ensure that I understood them. More importantly, she asked me if I understood what she was teaching me rather than assume that I comprehended everything immediately, which many instructors I've worked with do not tend to do. Lastly, she was also willing to adjust her schedule to help me get the study sessions in that I need. I'm glad that I am working with her to up my GRE score!

I was resuming French after about a year and a half of informal learning, and he was very accomodating while also pushing me to explore more advanced topics. He uses engaging resources that improve students' verbal, reading, and especially speaking skills. I cannot recommend Philippe enough!"

"My son loves Roselyne and he dislikes most people, seriously! She is great with kids and she did a great job keeping up with my wild child. It might help to speak slower to him to separate the words more.. Other than that, it went so great! Very happy to try and extend the lessons to be 45min or 60min long."

Sophie is a lovely person, who loves sharing her language with you, with her I have kept my interest for French alive and have been able to continue to gain language skills and insight through her.

He learns what interests his students and uses that to build knowledge and create healthy challenges. He is patient, encouraging, and positive with a good sense of humor. Philippe is also always open to feedback to make the time with his students more impactful and effective. Highly recommend!"
