Alix is a first class tutor of French. She is doing a wonderful job teaching my three children, aged 9, 13, and 15. Further, Alix knows the English education system, so she can ably support students at the various levels. Thanks, Alix!
â€œAlix has been teaching me the basics of the French language. I have a very busy schedule and Alix has been very flexible. Being French her knowledge is clearly excellent and her style of teaching is very informal. Her training is based on my questions combined with exercises from course books. I enjoy our lessons very much. Alix is very personable, professional and punctual. I would certainly recommend her.”
