I would not have managed that A in French without your help.
Thank you so much!
I got a B in French which I was pleased with and it meant I got into Loughborough University so I'm really happy. Thank you very much for all your help it was definitely very beneficial!!
I have had twice weekly lessons with Howard for about six months now and can honestly say that he has made my learning fun and memorable! He is patient, knowledgeable and trustworthy. He calms me down and can see when I start to panic. I can even converse with my neighbour now, which is just wonderful. Even my husband is amazed how far I have come.
I don't know what I would do without his expertise and help!
I have, and indeed do, thoroughly enjoy my hours lesson with Howard. He put me at ease from the outset and is, without double, a good teacher. He goes above and beyond trying to fit his schedule around me and that is something I really appreciate.
I would recommend learning French on-line to anyone, and would highly recommend Howard to be the teacher.
I got an A in my A2 French exam. So happy with my result and I'm going to Manchester University. Thank you so much for all your help, it was definitely a big boost.
I can only say we are delighted with Howard's French Tuition. My daughter was struggling with AS Level French and was achieving 'D' grades. We contacted Howard and arranged weekly Tuition and her confidence and grades increased. On result's day she was delighted with a grade 'B' (particularly as she was only 3 marks off a grade 'A'!) We have now arranged GCSE Tuition with Howard for her sister.
Molly is ready and raring to go with French Tuition with Howard!
