I'm not sure where to even begin. Easily the best instructor I have ever had for any subject. I ended up doing around 15 or so lessons with her and was able to communicate (albeit at a fairly basic level) with French speakers. She set up a custom lesson plan tailored to my abilities and brought years of her personal experience as a teacher in Switzerland as well as in the USA. She was always able to help on whatever questions I had and would help me understand through plenty of examples. I would continue to take classes with her until I was completely fluent if I could. She can do in-person or online classes. I did in-person because it's easier for me and every class was a fantastic learning experience and felt more like going to visit a friend than anything. I have nothing but positive things to say and can only give my personal stamp of approval. 11/10 best use of my free time I've made to better myself. If you want to learn French (or one of the other languages she instructs) do yourself a favor and send her a message!Mar 28, 2020Verified
Christine Hebert is the most conscientious, best prepared, pedagogical language teacher I have ever worked with. I have worked with Christine on two separate occasions. I hired Christine 12 years ago to teach my children French and a year ago to teach me German. Thanks to Christine, my children who are college students now obtained a solid base in French and still sing the French songs she taught them back then while accompanying them on her guitar. As for myself, Christine custom-prepared German lessons for me keeping up with my demanding style and requirements to where she would email me after only a few weeks into our lessons Hermann Hesse poems. Christine modifies the level, the speed and the style of her teaching sessions to fit her student's needs, personality and mood. She is truly a gem of a language teacher and I recommend her highly.

Amazing. Better than all four years of instruction my daughter received at a pricey private school. I'm a teacher so I know a good one when I see one. My daughter found the lessons, and the teacher's passion, inspiring.May 11, 2016
She made French interesting by talking about the geography and culture. I learned a lot and did well in French in school.Jan 6, 2016
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In a first free lesson I will evaluate the skills and the level of the chosen language. Afterwards I will let the student know about an effective plan to achieve his or her goal. We will also talk about different text and work books to chose from.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a teacher for over thirty years. My credentials from Switzerland and my longtime experience ensure great results.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I always knew I wanted to become a teacher growing up in a family of teachers.
