I have been having private french lessons with Magali and find her FANTASTIC! She is always well prepared, provides encouragement and assistance, and has excellent teaching skills to make difficult grammar concepts seem easy! Magali utilises different resources and approaches which make lessons fun and relevant. I highly recommend her
I almost gave up on French after taking a class at the Institut Francais, and then I met Magali. In the course of a year, meeting weekly, she singlehandedly took me from zero to speaking well enough to survive Noel en francais. She is truly a fantastic teacher. As the stars say, je l'adore!
I have been taking lessons with Magali for over two years having met through a tutoring website. She immediately put me at ease and was most encouraging. Magali has addressed my individual weaknesses and we have worked through various topics improving my grammar, written and conversational French. Magali is an extremely competent teacher while also making the lessons enjoyable.
Magali is a top-notch tutor. She is always well-prepared, tailoring lessons to my level and my specific goals. She took time to prepare individualized exercises as well as listening and writing exercises based on interesting topics
