Sophie taught my 12 year old son for about 9 months, helping him to prepare for exams in the UK. She achieved a great balance ensuring he was engaged and also moving forward with the areas he needed to learn. Consistently consolidating what he had learned, but keeping him on his toes with new information. He enjoyed his lessons so
I couldn't ask for much more from a tutor and would happily have continued with her had we not returned to the UK.
Sophie was amazing. She knows the French AP test inside and out, and helped me find my weakest areas of knowledge and we worked on those. I felt confident when I took the test and let's just say I did very well. Sophie was also very punctual, which I appreciated as I traveled from far north of Boston to see her. I chose Sophie because she had excellent feedback and I was not disappointed.
Sophie is an excellent and possibly the best French tutor! She is always eager to help and never fails to give my daughter feedbacks on how to improve her grammar, pronunciation, and writing. She explains things very well and always has a few grammar books on hand for extra practice. Having Sophie edit my daughter's writing really helped my daughter improve her grammar and writing skills.
I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone looking for extra help in French or for those who would like to get ahead in their class!
Sophie helped our 16 year old daughter prepare for her French III exams. She was very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. She connected well with our daughter and in a matter of minutes was able to hone in on where the deficiencies were and focus on those weak areas. She made time in her schedule as we needed, and in the end, it paid off on the tests! Thank you, Sophie!
Our daughter struggled so much last year (2013) with a difficult French teacher in high school. Although French was her favorite subject and even brought her to Paris over the summer, the negative environment at school colored everything. Sophie, you were a lifesaver, with your endless patience and cheery attitude. You made learning fun again and we are happy to report that the C of last year is now an A. Thank you so much!! Our daughter thinks of you often and knows that you really helped her master the foundation she needed.
My daughter is very relieved to have found a great tutor! She explained things clearly and efficiently. Nice demeanor, patient and very easy to work with. We look forward to having her again next week!
Sophie helped my daughter prepare for the new format of the French AP exams and we found her to be an excellent teacher. She had great breadth of knowledge of the French culture, vocabulary, test materials etc and the perfect French accent! She also guided us to useful online materials and several great websites. She was always very responsive to emails and queries and in general great. We would highly recommend her to other French AP students or those taking the French SAT or even just learning French for fun.
My son worked with Sophie to review and prepare for a 200 level college french composition class. She is conscientious and wanted to ensure that he met his learning goals for the time frame she tutored him. She prepares effective and pertinent lessons and teaches them with a multi-modality approach. She explains things well orally and follows them up with clear visual and verbal examples of the material. After each session she emailed recaps of what was covered during the lesson and included links to reinforcement practice homework exercises. My son enjoyed working with her and looked forward to his sessions.
Sophie is consistent, clear and responsive in her communications with the student and parent(s). She has a passion for her native language and teaching. Both my son and I highly recommend Sophie to tutor a student or adult at any french level.
This was our first time using WyzAnt. We were pleased with the services, payment methods and had a very positive experience.
Sophie is a fantastic French tutor. My two children have improved their french skills so much since they started working with her. She is a native speaker with French education background. Her tutoring classes have been meticulously prepared to match the level and personality of each child. The classes are also fun and children look forward to them. I am delighted by their progress in skill and also in attitude towards learning French. She is very reliable and has a wonderful warm personality. I strongly and enthusiastically recommend her.
Sophie is patient, encouraging, and a very experienced French teacher. I can't imagine a better choice for students at any level. She was of great help to my daughter.
Sophie worked intensely and efficiently with my son, a junior in high school, to prepare him for this year's French AP exam. A native French speaker, Sophie is an outstanding teacher who has experience in preparing the AP exam. She knows what is required and works efficiently and systematically towards the goal. She critically evaluates the student and focuses on his weakness. For example, Sophie understood that my son needed more practice in grammar and writing, than in listening and speaking. Therefore she organized the lessons in such a way to emphasize exactly what was needed the most. She is highly professional, easy to reach, very accommodating in terms of schedule, and came to our home to teach, which was very convenient. She followed up with my son after the exam to find out how he did. Overall, we had an excellent experience and I highly recommend her work as a teacher!
Sophie and I have had two lessons thus far. I find that she is helping me enormously with thorough explanations for the grammatical points or word usage problems I have. (I think it is a great advantage that she is a French teacher -- thus able to give me hints as to how to remember something. She knows the sticky problems students of French have.)
Also -- each time I leave our session I want to study more -- following up and reinforcing what she has just taught me.
We've met in two places now -- and i like the fact that she is flexible with time and we can meet at places convenient to us both.
Without WyzAnt I would not have been able to find Sophie.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
