My kids love to work with Nicole. She’s patient and professional at the same time and she proposes new activities at each lesson. My kids have done so many progresses with their French.Sep 12, 2019
Makes learning French fun! Will teach with material that interests YOU! Plus, she is a lovely person.Sep 15, 2019
Madame Nicole is a great learning partner for our family. She focuses on conversational french and the tenses and vocabulary that you would utilize as a visitor. Gone are the textbooks of a classroom, but rather she utilizes a great variety of online resources such as videos, games and quizzes to prompt us to speak out loud often, create our own dialogues and listen for comprehension. As an adult learner it is more effective than vocabulary drills and endless conjugation of verbs! Nicole is an interesting and lively lady to learn from. We appreciate her flexibility to match our pace of learning as a busy family with multiple things on the go in a week. I fully recommend Nicole!Nov 14, 2019
Nicole has been terrific. She has very nice teaching style that I suspect helps all levels of learners. At my very basic level I find her methods to be conducive to my learning. The style is conversational which I find more helpful and practical than classroom learning.Nov 11, 2019
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Fees can be negotiated according to student needs and duration of time spent. i.e. weekly lessons, individual, group, Skype/FaceTime.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I first talk with the prospective student about his/her language background, his /her goals., his/her learning style and interests. I also have him/her take an evaluation that gives me a first idea. Ultimately , during the two first lessons or so, we do speaking, listening , reading and writing activities that really determine the level of my new student. I then can design a curriculum , with the student's goals in mind.
