Ashley helped me pass my high school French midterms! She made the material super easy to understand (even the impossibly difficult conjugations), and gave me a ton of confidence in myself.
Laurie
Ashley was such a great help to me in my pursuit of acting! Her thoughtful yet kind approach made me feel at ease, and she taught me many helpful tools to improve my performance. I highly recommend you study with Ashley!
Cody R.
I have been thrilled with my lessons with Ashley! She is exceptionally skilled and makes me feel comfortable and encouraged. Acting can make one feel very vulnerable, so I appreciate that studying with Ashley has given me a safe space to grow and experiment with my craft.

Marie is an amazing teacher. I took a couple of years of French in high school and have learned in a much more fluid, easier to understand way from Marie. The way she teaches she connects sounds & letters of several words. It's so helpful her strategy of teaching. Thank you Marie!

I first started learning French when I was in high school and was amazed at how many similarities it shared with Spanish (which both descend from Latin) which helped me to pick up things a lot faster. I have since lived in the "French House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters where residents are required to speak their target language while in their respective apartments. I also took a third-year advanced grammar French class while at college while living in the French House. French is just an awesome language to learn!

I'm Valentina and I'm Italian, born and raised in Torino, Italy. Since I was young I use to speak french with my dad and I use to loved it!
I studied it at school too and I've traveled a lot of time to the close France to practice and learn more about the french culture. I've just moved here in Michigan and I'm very excited to share the beautiful and romantic French language with you! I have been teaching French for the past 2 years. As far as my teaching experience goes, I have previously tutored French for young students ranging in age from elementary school to adults while I still lived in Turin.
I’m outgoing, versatile and enthusiastic to share everything about this wonderful language, culture and traditions.

Five Stars! I haven't used AutoCAD for quite a few years. Valentina is an amazing teacher. After a few lessons, I feel very confident in my skills. She answered all of my questions and taught me new tips and tricks. Thank you Valentina, I appreciate all of your help.

Valentina is a wonderful teacher. She is dedicated, concise and driven. She creates a very friendly atmosphere of learning and is available to answer any questions. She assisted me with pronunciation, conjugations and knowledge to learn the aspects of Italian as a beginner. Bravo !!

So far I'm really enjoying my lessons! She is very patient with me as she's a native speaker and I'm just learning. I like the fact that she included a downloadable lesson plan. Thanks!

"I have never taken any formal french classes and have been learning French on my own and wanted formal lessons from a native French teacher. It has been a great experience learning French from Zach. He has a very practical and systematic approach to teaching French. He challenges students to do things out of their comfort zone such as calling hotels in France to practice conversational French comprehension and reciting a poem to help with French pronunciation. I highly recommend Zach to anyone looking to learn French at any level."

"Marie is an incredible teacher — I can't recommend her highly enough. As a beginner, I've learned more in a few weeks with Marie than months of self-taught app-based language. Her attention to pronunciation has given me confidence, and her helpful reminders and tips stay with me long after our lessons are over.

Not only is Marie excellent in communicating the basics of language, but she's also kind, patient, encouraging, and fun to work with. I look forward to our sessions each week!"

The only way to go through this scary but necessary step is to practice your oral french skills! How can you practice your oral French skills? French plays are a great place to start.
