I am so happy to write a review of my tutoring sessions with Patricia! She is so kind, has a sense of humor when teaching, and aims to relate the content and grammar she is teaching to my own life experiences and English to help me relate and better understand the content. She could sense my excitement to start my learning of French, and her enthusiasm on top of my own is contagious! You can tell me enjoys teaching the language. She focuses on correct pronunciation, and she wants you to excel in what she’s teaching. She’s the best! If you want to learn French, Patricia is the way to go!!

My company gives tours on electric bicycles. I had a large group coming from France. I hired Patricia to ride along and translate my information and stories into French. She was wonderful!! She made a special trip in advance to meet us and make sure she knew our location and to learn exactly what would be expected of her, even though I had already hired her by phone. On the day of our ride she was a gem. Very helpful. Patricia is friendly and fun and not at all shy about speaking to a group. She had no problem understanding my English. She is the kind of person who can see what needs to be done and does it. She was very helpful in translating instructions during training. She was perfect during the tour in the translation of stories into French. She helped a person who was having a problem with his bicycle and happily traded bicycles. The French tourists simply loved her and so did I. Patricia made the day extra special for our French visitors and made them feel comfortable. She was more than a translator, she was a team player. Tres magnifique! Merci Patricia, Barb Wittels Owner & Tour Manager Pedal...or Not Electric bike tours
