I was a student of a foreign language or two myself once, a time ago! I've learned by various methods and have taught a variety of methods as well. But, besides being able to teach the language, I can also help you discover the wonderful cultures that the languages I teach come from. I grew up in a Peruvian home and have lived and worked in France and the French Caribbean. Here are my credentials:

I'm a fellow French teacher who had the pleasure of working alongside Andréa on several occasions. I was always impressed with how much French she speaks in the classroom, and how creative she is in her lessons. Her students finish her class confident and ready to speak French in authentic situations. I highly recommend her!

Madame G. was an amazing French tutor. She took the time to look through the things I was struggling with before we met and gave me great ways to remember things. I highly recommend her as a tutor she is very kind and will definitely help your grade.

Madame G. is an amazing teacher! She is very passionate about what she does and it is contagious! While in her class not only did I learn basic French, I learned all about France! She wants all her students to succeed and if you try hard and apply yourself you will!
