Prior to it, I struggle to understand conversations or form the sentences properly. My oral conversation is my weaker link. Laure identifies the gap and structure our lesson accordingly. She helps me to prepare DELF A1 with lot of focus on my weaker area of oral conversation, and also improved my writing skills. I have improved tremendously and I aced my DELF exam with flying colours. Overall, I find her lessons to be of premier customised quality. She keeps me motived to continue learning at a suited pace.

" Achieving a pass grade on the DELF B2 examination was a prerequisite for my doctoral program. Having spent half a decade studying French in a North American high school, I was confident that self-study would suffice. However, the reality was more challenging than anticipated, and I found myself floundering on my first attempt with a disappointing score in the 40s. That's when I enlisted the help of Laure. With her in-depth expertise and professional demeanor, she swiftly discerned my weak points and devised an astute, targeted plan to help me overcome them. Her assignments were also well curated to improve my skills and rigorous enough to have me studying 7 hours a week to keep up. Although I hesitated initially at the cost, her lessons showed me that it was well worth it. In just eleven sessions, Laure remarkably helped me boost my score by approximately 30 points, culminating in a pass mark of 71.5 at my second attempt. My primary obstacle was my speaking ability, a skill I hadn't had the chance to hone in years. I also struggled with key grammatical structures vital for the exam. Laure didn't merely teach me how to succeed in the DELF exam, but she also substantially elevated my overall French language proficiency. Should I dare to take on the DELF C1 exam, I would unquestionably reach out to Laure without a second thought. For anyone endeavoring to excel in a French language examination or aspiring to enhance their French speaking abilities, Laure can definitely help. "

" I was looking for a French tutor in Brussels and I found Laure’s website through a Google search almost a year ago, and I am so glad I did! I had been attending group French classes in person at a French school for some time and they had caused me to become quite disheartened and despondent about my French. I found that the group classes were extremely time- consuming and did not cater to my needs – with lots of time spent covering material I was already familiar with. I now attend classes weekly with Laure via Skype and I enjoy the classes so much. I have made more progress in one year of classes with Laure than I did in years of group classes. Laure is an amazing teacher. She has the ability to pin-point exactly the areas in which I need to improve. She also listens to what you want to achieve. In my case I simply wanted to improve my French for daily life in a French-speaking environment, rather than focusing on exams. Laure is always incredibly prepared and sends a comprehensive round-up of new vocabulary and expressions after each session. The sessions are always interesting and the tasks she sets are completely realistic and help consolidate what you learn during the sessions with her. For me, having the classes online also allows for added flexibility and is a huge plus! If you are on the fence about learning or improving your French, I really would encourage you to take some classes with Laure – you won’t regret it! “

" I began my lessons with Laure almost a year ago to improve my basic conversational French but ended up going for DELF A1 and aced it with a score of 96%. Her lessons are highly personalised and structured around gaps identified at each lesson. We usually begin the lesson with a recap of the previous, making sure that I am progressing at a comfortable pace. Overall, Laure is a fantastic, motivating and professional online French tutor whom I highly recommend. I am definitely not stopping here... DELF A2 here I come! "

" Laure has been an absolutely incredible teacher, and I’ve passed my B2 with 92%! That is a fantastic improvement on my mark in the B1, done prior to our lessons. I get a huge amount of practice in all areas in the lesson, and we did plenty of mock exams of all types. After the session I promptly receive a list of vocab I couldn’t remember or didn’t know, words I mispronounced and really good homework focused on issues that came up in the lesson or things I have asked to work on. I’m continuing with lessons even after the exam, which really speaks volumes about how much I enjoy them, and I’m so delighted to now be able to tackle novels I previously had to give up on. I’ve really seen a huge improvement in my French, and crucially also in my confidence with the language. With plenty of encouragement and a huge amount of skill, Laure has helped me exceed my expectations! "

" I have been taking lessons from Laure (French Via Skype) for almost two years and it has been a wonderful experience. I had previously taken French classes at universities and also for several years at the Alliance Française, but I wanted to refresh and improve my conversational skills easily from home. The process and results with Laure have surpassed my expectations and has been the best French learning experience by far. Laure is extremely well prepared (keeping track of topics and assignments, planning the coursework, providing assessments of the progress, etc.) and her teaching methodology has been effective. She takes into account my preferences in terms of topics/skills to be covered, and uses discussions about current events, books and films to complement the class material. Above all she has a friendly demeanor that makes the class very approachable. I wholeheartedly recommend these personalized classes for anyone interested in learning French regardless of their skill level. "

" Having studied French for several years in high school, I took up re-learning the language and preparing for the DELF after my undergraduate medical studies to maintain my connection and interest with the French culture. Laure was fantastic as a teacher and mentor during this experience, and was a highly supportive, encouraging and engaging teacher. Her lessons were structured around the exam topics in such a way that I could not have felt better prepared going in. On a personal note, her flexibility to reorganise certain lessons around my work schedule, as well as her weekly homework tasks to keep our knowledge and learning to the highest standards were highlights of working and learning with her, making for a very enjoyable and smooth studying experience alongside working full-time. I was able to pass my DELF B1 exam despite being out of touch with the language for over 7 years prior to Laure’s lesson- a true testament to her ability as a teacher, and would have no doubt recommending her to future students as one of the best options to prepare for your DELF exam, irrespective of your level! ”

" I have had lessons with Laure for a year. One year ago I was at A1/A2 level, despite lessons and an A at GCSE level. My initial aim was to obtain the B2 DELF in order to work with French speakers, here in Switzerland. From the start Laure was able to recognise the errors I commonly made and would write these down so that I could learn them, she would then test me in the following lesson. She positively encouraged me to speak, write, read and listen throughout this time. Laure would check my written work in between lessons and was always happy to help. She even bought the B2 DELF practice exam book that i was using, so that she could help me. have been to University and had Post graduate teaching in medical studies. I can truly say that Laure is one of the kindest, most dedicated, thoughtful, professional and effective teachers that i know. She is methodical and offers structure to her lessons. She possesses the characteristics and qualities of a great teacher. I do not use this term lightly, I have had several other teachers but she stands out from the crowd. I worked hard and passed the B2 in November 2017, thanks to Laure. Since then Laure has continued to help me to gain confidence in my profession. She has shown herself to be adept at learning medical terminology as well as using different teaching styles to help me. Thank you Laure, you have helped me so much to realise my dreams. Last year, I was successful in a interview in French. In 2018 I start work in a 100% french environment. I believe that Laure can help anyone to learn French to a high level and boost your confidence at the same time. If you are motivated, she will help you. If you are discouraged she will help you find your courage. "

" I have been studying French with Laure via Skype for the past 2 years. I originally met her, and began taking French lessons from her, in Prague 15 years ago. Then, 2 years ago I received an email announcing that Laure would begin giving French lessons via Skype. I jumped at the opportunity! My previous experience with her had been very positive, and I looked forward to working with her again. She is a very professional and competent instructor. She individualizes instruction to precisely fit her students' levels and needs. Her classes are engaging and interesting. I look forward to each session. She offers the right mix of challenge, support, and patience. She provides honest feedback and encouragement in follow-up emails after each session. While I imagine that using Skype as a platform for giving French courses could be more challenging than a face to face class, she is extremely organized. Each lesson is well planned, and efficiently and seamlessly executed. I definitely recommend Laure to anyone who is interested in studying French in a supportive, positive environment. "

" Almost a year and a half ago, I commenced ‘French via Skype’ with Laure because I desired to improve my academic ability and I have a deep interest in travel and global connection. Thus, I can testify to the excellence of Laure’s classes, which are perfectly structured to cover all aspects of language learning. In each lesson, there is always the opportunity to engage in discussion about daily life. This has considerably improved my conversational French and ensured that classes are consistently engaging and often humorous. Laure also concentrates on reinforcing new vocabulary and grammar structures so that they become part of my long term memory. Entering my senior years as a student, a key criteria for valuable tutoring lessons is effective pacing. Laure achieves exactly this, optimising my time so that I rarely feel overwhelmed and conveniently conducting lessons online. I can converse with a native French speaker right from my desk at home! Laure further caters to my needs as a student by willingly providing feedback on school projects. Overall, our lessons have completely elevated my French skills and confidence. "
