Jordin is awesome!! I’ve been learning French for 3 months now, and Jordin has been so encouraging and patient with me. She also tailors our lessons to what I want to learn, and is flexible to meet my needs. Highly recommend Jordin as a 1:1 tutor!!

Jordin is methodical in her approach which helps instill the discipline in me to learn. She also keeps the lessons engaging and fun, and her enthusiasm elevates my learning experience. Each lesson reinforces the previous lesson, and Jordin tailors upcoming lessons based on my progress to date. On balance, I am very happy with how Jordin has been teaching me.

We have now taken 3 french lessons from Jordin, she's been wonderful - accommodating of our schedule and learning needs, very easy going and helpful in correcting our errors. She prepares a thoughtful lesson in advance and helps us navigate the tricky parts. Highly recommended.

I can't recommend Jordin enough. I have been working with Jordin for the last 18 months and I have made so much more progress than I ever did in years of a structured learning environment. Most recently I went to Paris and had a 45 minute conversation with a cab driver and I knew that the lessons I've had with Jordin have really paid off. Thank you Jordin! You're the best!!!

Jordin is an excellent French teacher! She is very patient, and while she is quick to remind you about translated words or verb conjugations, she also encourages you to challenge yourself. Jordin and I have conversations in elementary French, and her approachable personality makes it easier to reach out and ask questions throughout the conversation.

Jordin is a very responsible and magnificent French teacher.
Three months ago, my son started French for his upcoming freshman school year.
In the first 2 weeks, he was shy because of the complex pronunciations and alien words.
After that, he began speaking to us in simple French phrases and he is very proud of learning French with Jordin.
She never made any excuses to us.
We really need someone like her. A thousand applauds to her!

I'm preparing for a trip abroad and it's been a very long time since my high school French class. I want to feel comfortable getting around. Jordin has been great at changing the materials as she gets a feel for what I know and don't know and helping me get up to speed in being able to communicate both verbally and written. The classes are always enjoyable, I look forward to my weekly online sessions with her. She keeps it fun and at the right speed.

I am a 60 year old learning French for the first time. Jordin possesses all the right qualities to teach. She is smart, patient, experienced, and has an uncanny ability to create a lesson plan that is interesting, motivating and tailored to the learning style of the student. She uses music, pictures, speaking, writing and listening activities - the lessons are fun and informative. I feel supported and encouraged in each lesson. In addition she puts up with my terrible pronunciation!

Jordin was the perfect teacher to help my daughter through her high school French 4 class. My daughter was having trouble properly speaking French and learning the verb conjugations. Jordin focused on these weak areas and she now has more confidence and a better grade.

Jordin is an amazing teacher. She makes learning enjoyable and works well with students ranging from school age to University students. She has a high command in French, but is also well versed in ESL and ACT/SAT prep courses. She is personable and friendly, but also maintains a high level of professionalism. Highly recommended!

Jordin is an AWESOME teacher. I was in her class at UF and learned a ton. She is challenging but super nice with a high command in French. Highly recommend!

Jordin is an incredible teacher! She makes learning fun and incorporates authentic sources from France. She uses real life scenarios to practice French and you can tell that teaching and French are truly her passions! Definitely take a class with her! I've also seen her give ESL lessons, where she individualizes the materials to the students' goals and is an awesomely attentive teacher.

Jordin has been helping me refresh my French which I learnt in school but over the years have mostly forgotten. She's incredibly patient and has a real passion for all things French which I really appreciate. Jordin will go out of her way to ensure you understand any grammar point, even if it means attempting it multiple times. She's fun and easy to connect with while at the same time maintaining professionalism making you confident in her teaching ability.

Jordin's passion for teaching shines through her sessions. She is incredibly well versed in syntax, and uses it to teach students differing ways to get the most out of their lessons. Her background leaves her with no loop holes in her teaching style, and she could easily be called The Best of the Best! Students are enamored by her intellectual abilities and the best in each individual is brought out simply by her ability to make the student want to be better.
