Great teacher. Gets you started from the first lesson!

Amber is simply the best. She has a knack for determining my level and knows how far to push me in practices and recommending homework. Her experience serves her well. She is inspiring, motivating and blunt which goes a long way because she is very directed at her constructive criticism and points that need to be improved.

Amber is an amazing teacher who is kind and appreciates the student. She teaches with great passion and makes the student feel the music. I could see my son progressing already and his confidence level has gone up. He shows great interest and practices more than before!

Love Claire! I am a dancer by profession but was looking to learn to sing on the side. Claire has been wonderful! I have really enjoyed all of my lessons with her & am looking forward to continuing with singing! I would highly recommend. :)

Claire's the best! She's always upbeat and encouraging. She's great at explaining things and is super patient with a beginner like myself. You couldn't ask for a better teacher. Our sessions are always so fun and I'm sad when they end.

"Isabelle is an incredible French instructor. If you work with her, you will learn French, from the first lesson, to the last!

I've been a student of Isabelle's for over 2 years now and I can honestly say that working with Isabelle is one of the best decisions I've made in my life!

Isabelle maximizes lessons of any size by:
-skillfully assessing where clients are in their journey
-identifying near and long-term goals
-masterfully coaching clients to maximize French language acquisition across both oral and reading comprehension and oral and written expression

With Isabelle's help, I obtained an A2 ranking on my latest TCF exam earlier this year! Practically speaking, I've been able to comfortably travel to Paris, France and Montreal, Canada with ease and ace a job interview with a Native Francophone speaker in a hybrid conversation in English and French!

You will be lucky to work with Isabelle on your language goals. I recommend that you work with Isabelle, and insist that you start today!"
