Michelle helps my son with French.
According to him, she is one of the best teachers ever! She is kind, considerate and flexible, which keeps him continuing on his french journey. We are very thankful to have her help.

Je recommande Michelle sans aucune hésitation. Michelle est vivante, passionnée, intéressée par beaucoup de sujets très variés allant de la mode à la santé en passant par la politique. Elle est de surcroit sérieuse et soucieuse de toujours très bien faire. Son excellent français et son impeccable connaissance de la grammaire française en font un professeur idéal pour adultes et pour adolescents. Michelle connait les fondamentaux ET les nuances de la langue. D'ailleurs nous discutons souvent de la France et de sujets d'actualité s'y rattachant et c'est toujours un grand plaisir de pouvoir aller en profondeur sur tous types de sujets.
Je la recommande chaudement parce que je sais d'ores et déjà que ses futurs étudiants vont l'adorer! Exactitude, professionalisme et enthousiasme seront au rendez-vous.
