This is our fourth week with Mikayla. As a mom, I can already tell a difference in my son's ability to make english to French connection. His confidence is up supremely in class and most importantly, he seems to be enjoying learning the language more. Working with Mikayla is something my son looks forward to weekly. Incorporating lessons with her has greatly improved my son's success in French class. I only wish we had incorporated lessons with her sooner. Extremely satisfied!!

Mikayla is an absolutely amazing teacher!! I enrolled my 10 year old daughter in Take Lessons during the summer of 2016 to prepare her for a new private school atmosphere. Honestly, I was hesitant, this was her first time being exposed to a second language. I'm happy to say, Mikayla helped her rise to the occassion! She is not only excelling in her class but she is speaking French fluently and confidently volunteering for roles in various plays at her school. She is currently one of the top students in her class and is always eager to share her week with Mikayla to be challenged with new goals. We will continue our journey with Mikayla as long as my daughter continues to master the love and language of the French Culture. We highly recommend taking lessons with Mikayla!!!
