Taylor really enjoyed her session with Ms Marie, she stated she felt inspired to do better. Looking forward to another lesson.
Lorraine R.
I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.

I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I can say without hesitation that Elsa is the most professional and pleasant teacher that I have ever worked with. She is very customer service oriented, efficient, and flexible if you have a specific goal in mind.

My teenage daughter looks forward to the class and always ends the session with a smile on her face. She has fun with Elsa while she is learning. Win win!

I highly recommend French Encore!

I'm delighted to have found Elsa! She is energetic and charming. She is a gifted teacher. Both my granddaughter and I take lessons with her - although not at the same time. She easily adjusts to the level of her student, young or mature, beginner or advanced, making her lessons engaging and informative.

Elsa is an amazing teacher. My daughter loves her and is extremely excited to learn French. We have been doing virtual classes for a month and my daughter has already learned numbers, colors, and animals. Elsa has done an amazing job keeping my daughter engaged in a virtual class.

I teach children and adults from beginner to upper intermediate level. I studied the language for a year at a French institution and then I went to France to improve my skills. I want my students to learn a great variety of vocabulary and to feel comfortable in speaking the language.

My teaching philosophy is learning can be fun! I use didactic material to teach the language.

He led our introductory class through five verb forms and had us conversing quickly, picking up vocabulary along the way. For professionals looking to learn and practice conversational French, I can't recommend him highly enough."

I have experienced immense improvement to my vocabulary and grammar, as well as in my confidence to speak and "think in French." I most appreciate that Philippe is not shy about providing useful feedback or recognizing hard work and improvement. Would highly recommend."

"Philippe is an incredible teacher!
He is experienced and works well in the current distance-only training environment.  He's a very personable and engaging guy, which can be quite important when you're spending hours a day with someone. :)
But what I consider to be his best trait is his ability to assess the needs of the student and adapt his approach as needed, not just to work more on the areas where the student may need more practice, but to see what is working for a student and what is not and then to be willing to completely change his pedagogy to fit that student. This pedagogical flexibility is indeed rare to find in a teacher and, to me, this is what makes Philippe truly special."

In short, he is a master teacher, his spoken French is perfect, his knowledge is encyclopedic, and he helped me improve my long-neglected French language skills immeasurably in a short time. I could not be more pleased. One of the best teaching/learning experiences I have ever had. A really remarkable individual.

French Grammar Rules: What is the Subjunctive Mood?

Confused about conjugating verbs in the subjunctive mood? Tutor Carol Beth L. shares how to conjugate them and when you need to... Le subjonctif is one of the most notorious subjects in French grammar for non-native speakers of French. It is a mood that expresses uncertainty and is often connected with feelings, emotions, wishes, or desires about a particular event. In fact, we English-speakers also have a subjunctive mood, but we don't often use it or realize when we do use it. Her …
