" 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 French Student, St Leonard’s College- Melbourne

“ I had the privilege of working with Laure to prepare for my IB SL exams during year 11 and 12, she helped me a lot, without her I would not have been able to achieve this result. She showed great patience and pushed and encouraged me in each of her classes. Laure is perfectly familiar with the IB program and the expectations of the final exams. She took the time to have me regularly repeat the vocabulary of the themes covered in class, she explained the grammar in a clear and structured way so that I could integrate it into my written tasks. She brought me many resources and in particular many previous papers with which I practiced, in particular oral production for which I had a lot of apprehension. In the end, I’m really happy with my overall mark! Thank you Laure! ”

“ When I started with Laure in year 12, I was having great difficulty in class with, I had fallen far behind and the final exams seemed insurmountable. Laure took the time to methodically go over all the grammar basics with me so that I could structure my French both written and spoken. She was able to restore my confidence and the desire to study French, I was able to catch up and pass the final exams successfully. Beyond language skills, Laure was an invaluable tutor, always ready to offer advice, encourage my progress and create a personal connection with me. Thank you Laure! “

“ I took Laure's classes for my French IB during my last two years at school. She has in-depth knowledge of the specific requirements of the IB French program, and her ability to clarify complex concepts greatly facilitated my understanding of the language but also of the different themes covered in class. She took the time to understand my specific needs which were mainly in grammar to adapt her teaching methods. Thanks to her continued support during our sessions, I was able to gain confidence in my abilities to speak French and I was able to pass the end-of-year exams with flying colors, particularly the oral exam that I dreaded so much. I highly recommend Laure as an IB French tutor. Her professionalism and expertise were essential assets to my success. “

"I have studied French for an overall of 11 years but only started classes with Laure 3 years ago, and can say as someone who's had multiple French teachers prior, that she has been the most key to the improvement of both my academic and conversational French. I first looked into Laure to guide me through French in the IB as it is quite rigorous and academic which I had not encountered before. Since then, we have done a range of activities, from practicing speaking about topics which could come up in my speaking exams, to exercising my academic French by writing debates, letters and dissertations. 
As someone who is an introvert, I was very shy when first starting my classes with Laure especially as I had never had a native French teacher before and therefore assumed she had higher expectations. I still remember my first class with Laure where, instead, she was incredibly patient, warm and supportive. Since then, my writing, speaking, reading and listening skills have majorly advanced to which I've received comments from family, school teachers and even french-speaking friends concerning how much my French has improved! Even though I have graduated, I continue my classes with Laure to allow me to ease back into conversational French which is always the highlight of my week. Therefore, I highly recommend Laure if you're studying French as a beginner, an intermediate level or even if you would like to learn it as a hobby. “

” I started having lessons with Laure in January 2015 as I was having some difficulties at school 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 “
