Our recent testimonials
" 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. "
Student, Sydney, 2021/2022
" Laure is an AMAZING French instructor! She is exceptionally talented at coming up with grammar exercises extremely well-targeted at your individual areas in need of improvement. She is a great fit for any learner level, from people just starting out to very advanced students. I've taken lessons from her for 3 years, and each lesson has been worth it despite my busy schedule as a physician. She's been critically important in advancing my French to the level where I can now actually use it in my global health endeavors. I recommend her without hesitation. "
Pediatrician, United States, 2019/2022
" 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! "
Researcher, Lancaster University - United Kingdom 2020/2021
" I began my lesson with Laure about a year ago. I had learnt some basic French. I wanted to restart my learning and toward DELF exam. 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. I highly recommend Laure's lessons. “
Senior revenue accountant, Sydney - Australia 2020/2021
" I’m studying with Laure for about one year now and I’m very satisfied with her very targeted and well-organised French lessons. If you like to invest your limited time well and aiming for a fast improvement of your French level Laure is the right teacher for you. The lessons are intense and you better be well prepared and do your homework as Laure is a very strict teacher ;). First I found it very challenging to work so hard on my pronunciation but I realized quickly that this is key to a higher level of French. Also I was very happy about the amount of time one talks in her lessons as I know from my own German teaching experience that this is crucial for an improvement of the communications skills. Together with Laure I prepared for the DELF B1 and thanks to her I passed it with incredible 91%. I could highly recommend her as French teacher. “
German teacher, Geneva - Switzerland 2020/2021
" As a native English speaker who has lived in Geneva for several years, I have had quite a few not-so-successful attempts at improving my French. That all changed after I started my lessons with Laure! Very quickly Laure identified the "gaps" in my French and we began work on them. Laure is very dedicated to the lesson planning and sends feedback soon after each lesson with vocabulary and grammar points to work on and to keep momentum. Her help in preparing me to pass the B1 exam was invaluable. More than anything, I have more confidence to interact in French, which has been fantastic to my work and everyday life. I would highly recommend Laure - if you want to learn or improve your French, she is the best teacher you will find! Thank-you Laure! “
Head of Finance, Geneva - Switzerland 2020/2021
" Laure is an excellent teacher not only because she knows very well the material, but also because she is extremely well organised. During the lessons, Laure gives you the confidence to talk, and she also spots the parts that need more attention. In this way, she provides students with enough material to practice and improve. Due to my working schedule, I decided to take online lessons. I was very hesitant at the beginning, but my experience with Laure has been excellent! I have never taken any additional lessons, and I only watch tv in French from time to time. With Laure, I passed the DELF B2. "
Researcher, Fribourg -Switzerland 2018/2019/2020/2021
" I have contacted "French via Skype" because i was looking for conversation in French with native speaker. I have been learning French few years already and i wanted to increase my speaking skills. Laure is very patient teacher who is catching my mistakes without disturbing the flow of conversation, which is extremely important. After our lesson she will send me the words that were problematic and we will work on those the next session. This helps me a lot with expanding my vocabulary. Our focus is on fluent speaking but she also pays attention into the grammar and we regularly do the repetition of the grammar rules. Thanks to Laure my French is in much higher level now. "
Tychy - Poland 2019/2020/2021
" I contacted French via Skype looking for flexible one-on-one french lessons I can do from the comfort of my home! Having already passed my DELF B1 I wanted to set myself the target of passing DELF B2, in particular improving my speaking skills and my confidence. The lessons are really well structured, with comprehensive feedback and I requested some homework to complete between lessons which was also corrected and discussed. We worked hard on my weaknesses and finally I passed the exam with a mark I am really proud of! For me, the lessons had a great balance of me feeling at ease but also working hard and making progress. I would certainly like to continue with lessons in the future to help me with French in my workplace, speaking and writing in a professional environment. "
Geneva, Switzerland 2020
" I started learning French through group classes when I first moved to Geneva, but as I started to advance, I wanted to focus more intensely with grammar, writing and conversational skills. Laure immediately understood what I needed to work on as I explained that I would like to take the DELF exams and that French is critical for my career in the UN. She prepared me very well with the exam's reading and writing exercises, and fortunately, I was able to pass my DELF B1 exam. As I continue to work with her, I appreciate that she is a patient, very structured, and motivating teacher -- I would recommend Laure to anyone who wants to improve on French! "
UN staff, Geneva - Switzerland 2018/2019/2020
" It was important for me to learn French in a structured way, so I did my research and came across Laure’s profile. She was highly recommended and had great reviews. I decided to try some lessons with my partner. I can see why she had such great reviews. She was so patient with us, started from the start, was persistent until we got it. Even though it was on Skype, it felt like she was in the room with us and guided us so efficiently. She was structured and methodical, kept track of our progress and tailored our learning as we went. She was also so flexible! My partner and I lead hectic lives and having the convenience of logging in through Skype meant that we could log in anywhere for our lessons when we were travelling for work. She takes her work quite seriously, but still approaches it with a smile and patience. In the few months learning with Laure, our French skills significantly improved. I went to Paris for the first time last month and was amazed at how much confidence and knowledge I had accumulated from being a complete novice to learning for a few months with Laure. "
Site Quality Manager, Melbourne - Australia, 2019/2020
" A work colleague of mine highly recommended French via Skype to me and I have not been disappointed. Laure is an excellent and enthusiastic teacher and communicator, who creates lessons that are interesting and relevant to me, using the words, grammar and phrases I need to learn and know for my everyday life. She is flexible and imaginative, adapting the lessons and teaching materials to my changing needs, not always easy as I often have a busy work and home life. It is a pleasure to learn French with Laure; I look forward to my lessons each week and continuing to improve and progress under her expert guidance. "
Project manager, Lausanne UEFA, 2020
" I have been taking French lessons with Laure for over 1 year now and have seen significant improvement in my French. I travel quite a bit for my job and learning French via Skype provides the flexibility I need so that I can continue to progress my skills no matter where I am in the world. I have not only expanded my vocabulary, improved my writing skills, but also gained confidence in speaking French. Laure tailors each lesson to help you achieve your goals and also at a pace that works for you. Laure is highly organized and also provides quality teaching materials. Laure encourages you along the way and helped me stay motivated to keep improving my French. I would highly recommend learning French with Laure if you are looking for learn from someone that has a passion for teaching and helping their students achieve their goals. "
Geologist, New Mexico, 2019/2020
" I initially contacted French via Skype for the convenience of taking lessons remotely, and quickly found that Laure was one of the best teachers - of anything - that I’ve ever had. Her enthusiasm and clarity of teaching style, coupled with rigorous follow up meant that despite my very busy work schedule i progressed quickly. I had some basic French knowledge from high school some 20 years ago, and have now progressed to a level of fluency where i can read the kind of technical literature my job requires, watch French television without subtitles, and most importantly have a dinner table conversation with a fast-speaking Parisian. Learning French in Melbourne, or any other isolated English-speaking city can be difficult but I can highly recommend Laure as a French Skype tutor, I’m pleased to have mastered a new language as an adult and to be able to have an entry to another culture. "
I began my French lessons with Laure approximately 2 years ago when I decided to start refining and developing the French my father taught me growing up. I really like the flexibility that learning French with Skype affords me because I travel a lot for work and it means I never have to miss a lesson. Laure is an excellent teacher and she has helped me improve my skills immensely. I have noticed improvements on a weekly basis and I am also aware of how much more confident I am, which has really helped to motivate and keep me committed to learning and improving. Laure does not rush through subjects, we only progress once we agree that I have sufficiently understood/learned the syllabus. I would highly recommend Laure to anyone wishing to start or enhance their French.
Laure and I have been working together for a couple of years and I’ve been loyal to her French Skype lessons because they’re hard to beat. I was determined not to be an Expat in Geneva who knows zero French as it’s too good an opportunity to pass up learning while living here. While I’m no natural linguist (I like to talk a lot in my mother tongue!) Laure has been very patient in helping me to improve in my conversational French, which was always my priority. Laure has always been flexible around my schedule and we’ve fitted in lessons before work or during lunch hours. I would highly recommend working with Laure!
" I started tutoring with Laure at the start of year 11 and I can honestly say that I would not have done nearly as well with IB French without her. She is knowledgeable, organised and she always pushes her students to be better. It was her guidance and teaching that allowed me to feel truly confident with the French language.
So I highly recommend Laure and French via Skype to anyone that either needs help with secondary school French or just want to get ahead in their French proficiency. "
IB student, Melbourne, 2018/2019
" 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.
I 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. "
Dr Steve P
" I was a complete novice when I began French with Laure via skype 3 years ago. I was not confident of my ability to learn to speak another language as my previous experiences had been discouraging. Laure has taught, encouraged and guided me with skill and commitment to the point where I feel I can say “I speak French!” She has taken time to understand me and how I learn best and tailors my lesson to suit me. Learning via skype is fantastically convenient and Laure has really made this teaching medium work effectively. I would highly recommend her to anyone of any age. "
" I had 10 lessons with Laure, the main goals being to improve my grammar, speaking skills and overall level of confidence. Any apprehensions I had about learning a language via Skype were dispelled right at the start of the course. Laure’s personable nature, unfailing patience and outstanding ability to adjust to my own pace made sure I got the most out of each and every lesson. This was by far the most productive and rewarding language course I have taken. I highly recommend Laure to anyone wanting to improve their French. ".
" I started having lessons with Laure in January 2016 as I was having some difficulties at school here in Brussels with my IB French. Our lessons considerably improved my marks and my comprehension of the language. Each lesson, we worked on vocabulary, grammar and we did a lot of exercises too (dictation, writing and comprehension), all of that helped me to achieve some really good marks and i successfully passed my French IB exams at the end of the year! I really enjoyed our lessons and would like to recommend Laure to other students who need support with their French ".
IB student, Brussels, 2017
" I live and work part of the year in France. Two years ago I asked Laure to develop my language skills via Skype to a level where I would be comfortable expressing myself with French friends and colleagues. She succeeded in all respects. Laure has a knack for identifying particular grammatical areas to improve and how. She is always well prepared, professional and challenging yet encouraging. I would recommend her without hesitation. "
New York, 2017
" 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. "
Porto Rico, 2017
" 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. "
