Des "reviews" qu'on aime ! Merci les amis !


"Marie has provided French tutoring services for myself and my daughter for the last five years. This has allowed us to both progress from beginner basics to a reasonable level of competence in the language. My daughter is currently studying IB French having achieved excellence in her NCEA French examination.

The most challenging aspect of learning a foreign language is confidence in speaking and Marie immediately removed the awkward element by her calm manner. Always well prepared for these lessons, she is able to provide material and support for all levels of ability in French and is extremely reliable. 

I have no hesitation in recommending her tutoring services and feel that it is a great loss for her students here in Auckland." - From Jacqueline


"Marie has been my tutor in French for 4 years. I have thoroughly enjoyed her lessons, which have always been stimulating and informative. Marie has the knack of explaining French grammar such that it becomes understandable and in many instances, even logical!  Additionally, under her encouragement I have found confidence in speaking French, which can be a major barrier especially to older non-native speakers. 

I would warmly recommend Marie’s teaching. Her patience and kindness, combined with her academic excellence makes her an outstanding tutor. I feel very privileged to have had this learning opportunity." - From Kitty

"Bonjour Marie! Ca y est, je suis en France et ça marche pour moi!
Thanks heaps for helping me out with my french. I did make a huge step forward and I do feel at ease with the locals here in Paris. What a change!

Marie has been a great teacher, devoting lots of energy in preparing her lessons, and focusing on the needs I had for my work experience here in France: things like writing work emails, answering phone calls, using some common idioms and all the little practical things that only native speakers know about the french culture and how french behave. She is an interesting and lively person too and It is always great to talk to her. After a few years of french classes with various schools she has really managed in a few months to put all my skills together to bring me to the next level. Merci Marie. Larry." - From Larry.

"Marie is a friendly, approachable and super patient tutor! She has great way of explaining the intricacies of the french language and I have really noticed the improvement in my spoken french. I particularly appreciated her help in preparing me for a job interview in french - merci Marie! I would definitely recommend Marie to anyone looking for a french tutor" - From Megan.


"Marie is a fantastic tutor, she is very approachable and friendly. She is reliable and very organised. She goes over and beyond to help out, with grammar points, homework and more. Marie is well prepared for every lesson and takes the time to help the student really meet goals and deadlines. Marie caters for every need , if it be homework, writing or even just a lesson dedicated to speaking , she always finds a way to help out, with very useful advice. French is really fun  with Marie and I really enjoy our lessons together. I would highly recommend her as a tutor" - From Suzanne.
