"Wonderful Tutor, Very Patient"
Ebony from Irvine, CA on 2/20/12
My job has a language requirement for its executives since we are a global organization. I contacted Veronique on Wyzant because I have a presentation to give to the French Ministry at the end of September and I wanted to be able to handle the presentation in English and French. I was starting from scratch after not having been in a formal French class since High School. Its been six weeks and already I am reading quite well and I am able to speak words with "no accent". Veronique has been amazing. Her methods have progressed me to a level of confidence and ability I would never have dreamed I would have accomplished this soon. Veronique is very personable, flexible from a scheduling perspective, patient but firm, and makes the learning process fun.
I know most of the individuals looking for tutoring are parents looking for their school age students or college students themselves; however, I would urge any adults looking to expand their cognitive ability by learning something new, contact Veronique for French lessons. I am looking forward to being able to linguistically and culturally connect with my business colleagues in France this Fall!

Ms. Veronique is always positive and upbeat with my son. She is very encouraging yet makes sure my son has the tools he can use to practice even on the days she is not available. Great tutor.

Veronique is an excellent tutor. She has been working with my 11th grade daughter studying AP French for about 4 months now, and we have found her to be everything we had hoped to find in a tutor. She is very knowledgeable in both the French and English languages (which is important when explaining esoteric linguistic concepts), has a delightful personality, is very professional: responsible and punctual, yet not rigid.
In fact, she is very flexible in adapting her lessons to the needs of the student, which has worked particularly well for my daughter, who was fearful of having to go through boring repetitions of material that she has already mastered. Despite the subject's inherent difficulty, my daughter is able to engage herself in studying AP French outside of school because of Veronique's encouragement and ability to make the lessons palatable, and even enjoyable!
"Tough but good."

Veronique is such a good teacher. She quickly assesses your skill level and then targets her lessons a few notches higher. She is tough but effective!
"Very likable and great teaching methods."
Ali from Newport Coast, CA on 9/26/13
My two daughters had a few sessions with Veronique and loved working with her. She was able to tailor each lesson according to their level and come up with teaching material that was appropriate and fun. She was patient and knew how to make her students comfortable to speak up more. We highly recommend Veronique!
"Best Decision in a Long Time"
Katherine from Laguna Niguel, CA on 8/23/13
I wanted to take some conversational French lessons because my son is marrying a Swiss woman, and I want to be able to speak with her family at the wedding. I spoke intermediate French a long time ago but haven't had the occasion to speak it in a while. Veronique has turned out to be perfect. She is interesting and fun to speak with. We have worked with printed material and supplemented with conversations in French. My lessons with Veronique have exceeded my expectations. I still can't believe I was so lucky to find her.
"Fun and effective tutor."
Thanh from Corona Del Mar, CA on 8/22/13
Our family, including myself, husband, and children of 6 and 8 years of age, have had lessons weekly with Veronique for 2 months now. Each of us of different French background has gained a lot from our short time with Veronique. I have lived in France before, but this French native with a literature background has a lot to teach me! My kids like her because she has a very relaxed and pleasant way about her. And she is a lot more patient with my husband than I could be. After our lesson each week, we have been looking forward to doing our homework and meet again with our very fun French teacher!

For the summer, I was looking for a tutor with whom I could get a head start on the school year.
Veronique proved to be extremely helpful. She has a wealth of materials to work with and gives clear explanations to any questions that might arise. Moreover, she goes over the concept until she is 100% sure that you understand it. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a French tutor.
Carol from Laguna Hills, CA on 3/21/13
I was ready to give up on learning French, until I met Veronique. We hit it off right away. She is kind, patient, and a wonderful tutor. She makes learning fun, and I look forward to our lessons. I absolutely, highly recommend her!
"Wonderful French tutor!"
Victor from Irvine, CA on 12/6/12
Veronique is wonderful! She is a native French teacher, very professional, kind and patient to students. My boy has gained much confidence in speaking and writing under her guidance. I can highly recommend Veronique.
Paul from Newport Beach, CA on 6/27/12
Veronique knows her stuff. She was able to break concepts down in such a way where they ready made sense.
Looking forward to session II.
"Veronique is an excellent French tutor."
Allen from Newport Beach, CA on 5/26/12
Veronique is a native French speaker who has a proficient command of French and English grammar and vocabulary. She has a lot of experience teaching French and has a talent for knowing what's important. One of the first things that impressed me was her outstanding ability to teach correct pronunciation. The lessons with her, while challenging, are also a pleasant good time. She is easy to contact by email or text and responds very quickly. She is also very accommodating when the need to change appointment times occurs. Honestly, I can't imagine a better French tutor than Veronique.
Kerry from Corona Del Mar, CA on 4/30/12
My children and I had a great first lesson and are very excited about our next lesson. Veronique is excellent with children and made the lesson meaningful for all of us. We plan on continuing our studies.
"Grade went up a full letter from C- To B-"
Lisa from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA on 5/4/11
We couldn't be happier with the support that Veronique has provided to our daughter. Her grade has come up a full letter grade and that's saying something since we're in second semester and building on a shaky foundation from the first semester! It takes a lot of effort on both the student and tutor's part and this partnership is really working.
