"5 of 5!"
- Jack, Philadelphia, PA on 12/9/14
I have been receiving 1:1 tutoring with Geraldine for four months to improve my business French skills, and I could not rate her higher.
As a 24-year old with no prior French knowledge or disposition towards learning new languages, I was apprehensive about the seemingly insurmountable task ahead. However, from the onset Geraldine has proven to be patient, enthusiastic, supportive, and knowledgeable; as a native French speaker, she understands the language at a level you won't find with non-native speakers, and she is able to clearly convey difficult topics with clarity and ease. She is very flexible with her teaching style and has a range of multimedia resources to make her lessons fun, varied, and personalized. Geraldine always brings energy to the lessons and is patient when correcting errors, no matter how many times you make them! And despite her busy schedule, Geraldine is flexible to your schedule, easy to get in touch with, and always on time.
Overall, my improvement in French in four months has been remarkable, and without Geraldine's guidance I am certain I would not be where I am today-- my highest recommendation goes to her and I am certain that you would be hard-pressed to find a better French teacher on this side of the Atlantic!

Geraldine is very patient and steady. She has been giving us lessons for a couple of months and my kids look forward to it every week. Although when we started we were not sure if Skype lessons would work, I am convinced that it works because of Geraldine. She is organized and plans the class ahead of time, and follows up with a recap and homework after each session. When we have requested changes in time she has been very accommodating. Great tutor!

I am an adult student who is trying to juggle work, school, and kids, so learning another language became very difficult. I have to take 4 semesters of French as a requirement to graduate. I started my third semester of French and felt completely lost. I looked for a French tutor and found Geraldine; she really helped break down the grammar points and she is always prepared with fun exercises to reinforce the grammar, tenses etc. She is very patient and always easy to reach by email. She is highly recommended.

Geraldine was exactly what I was looking for. She was prepared (I was not certain all that I needed) and knowledgable. I would swear she's been teaching French for years.
"Very Good Tutor and Extremely Patient"
- Vinod, Norristown, PA on 5/21/14
I am an adult who has been trying to learn French for pleasure for the last few years. Of all the French tutors I have dealt with, Geraldine has been the best tutor I have had. Initially I was quite skeptical about her abilities since she looked very young but soon realized that she had a lot of patience and tailored her teaching material according to the student's capabilities and requirements. I do not have the best of memory but Geraldine helped me in finding patterns in the usage of various verbs and also kept the material very interesting. I would highly recommend Geraldine.

Ever since day 1 of learning French, Geraldine has constantly been consistent with me. I have constantly improved in the language well. I recommend anybody who wants to learn this language and have fun. She's it.

Geraldine is an excellent tutor. She is very thorough and patient during the lesson. She always makes sure I understand the material.
"Great Tutor "
- David, Philadelphia, PA on 5/17/13
Geraldine has been a godsend. My daughter has gone from hating French and a C average to enjoying French and a A- average. My daughter looks forward to go to tutoring because she enjoys Geraldine's company. As a native speaker Geraldine has taught French to my daughter with a natural accent. Geraldine has helped my daughter with her written French as well.

Geraldine was able to help my daughter who needed some extra support in French. Her understanding of the material increased immediately. She found Geraldine to be very clear and thorough in her explanations. She also felt that Geraldine made the sessions very enjoyable. They worked both in person and via Skype at the times when meeting in person would not be possible.
