Marianne has helped me greatly over the past 18 months and helped me bring my French up to speed from B1 to C1, after a 20 year break. She is very good at guiding me with regard to my accent and all other aspects of french and a very supportive teacher!!
Marianne is a fantastic tutor with extensive knowledge and a patient and thorough teaching style.
I searched for a French tutor on Google and her name came up. I have always wanted to learn French, but could not find somebody to fit in the time that I had. Marrianne is very accommodating to my schedule, which makes my study possible. In addition, she used different techniques to understand new words and grammar in French (not English) such as games, drawing, visual aids. In doing so, I become more confidence with listening and using French. The most interesting thing when I studied French with Marianne was that the atmosphere was very relax. I did not feel any pressure, which allows more to enjoy every lessons.
