Best French teacher I've ever had! Agnes is a native French speaker and I loved working with her for an intensive language program for two months. Agnes is very prepared for each lesson and she tailored her curriculum to my exact trouble areas, which helped me improve quickly. Her teaching method is a lot better than tutors who just go through lessons in a book. Agnes combined written, speaking, and listening exercises and picked themes of special interest to me. I improved from intermediate to advance while working with Agnes. I only wish I had more time to keep learning French! I will always pick Agnes in the future to practice my French.
Wonderful French tutor! We were so glad we found someone who is not only a native French speaker, but also a natural teacher. My daughter struggled with French in high school. Even after finishing French 1 and 2, my daughter could not speak or write properly. Ms. Agnes was kind, patient, and knew how to rebuild confidence in learning French. After a few months of tutoring, my daughter was able to hold conversation in French, and able to read & write short stories. Her accent also improved tremendously. Naturally her grades improved too and she finished her French 3 with a straight A.
