Celine is an excellent teacher. She is very patient, and always encourages me as well as comments when I do well. She instinctively knows what I wish to learn next. I look forward to our sessions and feel like I'll be a natural when I visit France.

Over the past view sessions, she has helped my son with translations of current event articles. Also, she has helped him write and formulate essay responses to debate topics. Her assistance helped him receive a 4 on his AP-style French essay, as well as a 4 on his e-mail response (both are parts of the AP test - getting a 4 is very nice). She has also been correcting my son as he reads from The Chronicles of Narnia (in French, of course). She also speaks to him in French (even though he is kind of reluctant; he can understand what she says, for the most part, but has some difficulty in responding).
He plans to print out debate topics and work with her on them.
Her work over the few weeks we have been with her, so far, has benefited my son in both his speaking, writing, and comprehension skills - at this rate, I do believe that he will do well on the AP test (however, his goal of speaking in French may be a bit harder). His grade in AP French IV has risen to a 92.
12/6/12 update: his grade has risen to a 96!
06/2013 update: Passed AP test and was able to get credit at A&M for two French classes. (8 college units)

Mrs. Celine is AAAMAAAZING, patient, knowledgeable, and fun. Learning a new language can be hard, tedious and frustrating. Mrs. Celine encourages you and helps with reassurance. I'm truly happy with my sessions.
"Very personable, yet professional and always positive."

Celine continues to encourage me and adjust lessons according to my ability and lifestyle [and memory! - J'ai soixante ans] always 'tailoring' them to my needs and desires, while challenging me, too.

Celine has been working with my teenager for about two plus months now and I have been very happy with the progress she has made with him. He is now in his second year of French and she has been so instrumental in helping him to overcome his fears of speaking French. I highly recommend her to anyone contemplating the same. She is very friendly, receptive to goals, and always looking for ways to improve how she teaches.

I have been studying French with Celine for only about 3 months now, and I can not believe the amount of French I have already learned! Besides being a great teacher, it has been a joy to just get to work with her. I meet her at her home for our lessons, and she is always prepared with the afternoon's material. We had talked about meeting else where, but for both of us, it worked out well for me to meet her there. She has a nice neighborhood and is always hospitable. She is always smiling; a very kind, sweet french woman :) I am very glad to have found her; she is a precious jewel to those who are looking for not just a good tutor, but a good person as well. I look forward to becoming fluent with her!

Celine's life experience in speaking French and English provides a rich foundation for teaching.
She is knowledgeable, skilled and enthusiastic about teaching and shows sincere interest in her student. Her varied teaching techniques prevents boredom and her patient attitude and positive feed back is encouraging and motivating. She identifies "learning gaps" and is flexible in the teaching pace without sacrificing the learning goals.
She is always punctual, pleasant and prepared. She loves teaching. It makes you love learning.
