Stephanie is a wonderful French teacher and I am so sorry we have to say goodbye (but we are moving to Montreal). My twin daughters began 5 months ago with absolutely no French experience and learned a tremendous amount simply from their weekly sessions with Stephanie. Stephanie is committed to the best way for the student to learn French (first audibly) and goes the extra mile (and time). I highly recommend Stephanie for any French lesson needs!Jun 3, 2017Verified
I believe that working with a quality tutor is the best way to improve your French (unless you can be immersed in a French-speaking environment, that is!). I started with Stephanie in November 2016 and continued until I had my baby in April 2017. She is a great teacher. Lessons are enjoyable and varied, but she doesn't let you get away with poor pronunciation or mistakes! She clearly takes time to prepare for each class and tailors content to your needs and preferences. This way, you can see real progress. I was quite overwhelmed at first but gradually things begin to click and it's a great feeling. Thank you, Stef, I look forward to continuing soon!May 22, 2017Verified
With Stef - you couldn't ask for more from a French lesson. She was very helpful in understanding the perimeters of our group and helping us feel more comfortable with learning the language. Each lesson was well thought out and education. I highly recommended Stef when selecting a French language Instructor!Jul 10, 2017Verified
Truly wonderful. She is committed to her work and you can tell that she is enjoying it. Never boring. She stretches her students. She makes learning French fun and interesting. Very flexible with her time. You would be pleased with her professional attitude. Lessons are very well structured. All in all a very competent teacher with a likable personality. I am certain that I will not find a better French teacher than Stephanie. I have tried many in the past. I feel lucky to have found her. I am committed to her until I speak French fluently.Jan 9, 2017Verified
Another client of Stephanie's recommended her to me. Since May 2018 I've been meeting with Stephanie once a week for about an hour via Skype. Speaking French was brand new to me and since then I feel that my skills have really improved. The pace of each session is perfect and the follow-up audio files that she sends me to practice with during the week really tie it all together. Stephanie makes each lesson engaging and fun.Jan 28, 2019
