« Marianne has been teaching me regularly now for 4 months. I really enjoy Marianne's teaching style, she is very patient and great at explaining grammar and vocabulary points. The lessons are planned and structured according to my ability, and extra homework is set in between the lessons. I've also learnt a lot about France as a country in these lessons! Looking forward to more in the future! »

I found Marianne on Superprof after quite a brief search on Google. I read her reviews, saw that she was well-qualified and I had an instinct that she would be a good teacher. So far I have had three lessons on Zoom and they have all been excellent. I particularly like the variety of learning tasks - whether it's listening, looking at a video, checking some grammar - and the hour-long lessons go very quickly! Marianne gives me the confidence to have a go at speaking French even when I'm not entirely sure I'm saying the right thing! For me, that is one of the best ways to learn. Each lesson is very well-planned and I enjoy the tasks she sets for me to do in between lessons. After only 3 lessons, I already feel like I'm improving. I recommend Marianne without hesitation.

I have been tutored by Marianne for the past ten months and I cannot speak highly enough of her tuition. Her lessons are well paced to encourage my comprehension of the language plus they are varied and always interesting.

Marianne is an amazing tutor who really helped me with French A level (which i went on to get a high A* in). She was always very patient - which was essential for me given I’m quite seriously dyslexic. Marianne always answered any questions I had clearly and concisely and gave me great feedback when I made mistakes. I’m really grateful for all her help!

I loved my French lessons with Marianne. They were so varied and creative. One day we were playing a board games she’d devised, the next were reading extracts from books, then having role plays. It kept it all so interesting that you didn’t really realise you were learning! She tailored everything to suit what I wanted to get out of the lessons

Marianne is an excellent tutor. I have had lessons from her to help me improve my conversational French.
She is very patient and gives clear explanations of the use of French both from a grammatical perspective and in terms of everyday life in France.
She is a native French speaker which is very helpful.
After each lesson Marianne provides a summary of the topics covered.
I am very happy with the progress I am making.

The lessons I have had have been great.
Marianne sets me tasks to complete prior, which helps me further my understanding and benefit from each lesson greatly. I am enjoying learning with Marianne - I can see improvement in my knowledge & confidence and I am excited to see how much more I can improve!

I have been taking French lessons with Marianne for 5 months now. We have been working around the A2/B1 (DELF) level and I am very happy with the progress I am making. The lessons are perfectly paced for me and I have time to understand and use new vocabulary/grammar before moving on. I have noticed an improvement in my confidence and pronunciation. Highly recommended!!!

I have only had a few one to one one hour lessons with Marianne, and they have been great. It's the first time that I have had French lessons since GCE French, and I'm loving them. The initial meeting was really important in setting the scene, giving me a chance to say why and what I want to learn, and to find out about her teaching methods. I look forward to these lessons, because Marianne makes them relevant to my needs, interesting and challenging in a useful and enjoyable way. Her enthusiasm is motivating, and she has helped me to feel comfortable and more confident in having a go at lengthier conversations. She speaks French to me throughout unless I really get stuck, and explains grammar and patterns which assist gender recognition. She sets standards and goals which are attainable, and fun on the way to achieving. I think she's a great teacher, and recommend her whole heartedly.

Heather

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!!
