Marie is a great tutor, and is very thorough, and insightful. She is very efficient and begins her lessons speaking French right away! We have had about 3 sessions so far and look forward to continuing to work with her. We purchased the 5 pack series which is what I would recommend. Marie is a great tutor for anyone who is taking French courses in school and wishes to improve, or just wanting to learn conversational French.Nov 8, 2018
My 13 year old daughter wanted to learn french. She is the second tutor we tried. Marie can teach AND speak the language. My daughter feels she is a good teacher and feels comfortable around her.Jan 8, 2019Verified
Really great French tutoring, especially for conversation. Marie totally has the accent down, and definitely helped my pronunciation, so I had a much more authentic time in both France and Switzerland!Dec 5, 2018
Marie is a great tutor! I had a few tutors before her and hey were not as great! Not only does she explain me subjects I don't understand but also she helps me study for them. During the summer we worked on some math on khan academy and it went really good. She speaks French perfectly and makes you speak French with her to develop a good French accent. I was learning about biology and Marie helped a lot by explaining it in English and then in French as well! Definitely the best and nicest tutor I've ever had! MERCI!!Dec 4, 2018
I learned French with Marie with her online gold plan. I was able to get enough sessions for the semester to get an A! I was impressed, Marie is effective and concise. 10/10, would book again.Dec 9, 2018Up Grade Tutoring with Marie's reply
