- Is your middle or high school child struggling in his French class?
- Are you planning a trip to France and need a refresher course or would like to learn basic French for conversation?
- Do you need to learn French for business?
- Does your home-schooled child need French instruction?
- Are you looking for high school or college final exam preparation (incl. SAT and AP French)?
My tutoring sessions are always a fun, enriching and non-intimating learning experience. I always make sure that my students feel completely comfortable with learning a new language. I use unique, proven and customized curricula that have delivered results for children, student, adults and families alike.
I adapt my teaching to what works best for each student, using a variety of material and a combination of written worksheets, oral repetition and total physical response. My focus is grammar, vocabulary building/retention and pronunciation. The first 10 minutes of each session are devoted to reviewing what was learned during the previous class. I make sure that the material is mastered so that the student can keep on learning and building his knowledge with a solid basis. I am a native French speaker.

I am so glad I came across Veronique. She is a born teacher! I had studied French in school, but I've not used it for 30 years, so I was rusty to say the least. Because of developments with my work, I needed to be conversant and able to read and write in French quickly. Veronique has a way of explaining the concepts that make them very easy to grasp, and immediately focused on the areas I needed to improve. And the lessons are always fun and full of laughter. In just a short time I am able to have conversations and translate documents. It has been a great way to regain and improve the language skills I thought I had lost forever. I highly recommend her.
Veronique is an intuitive teacher. She keeps the lessons interesting, fun, and challenging as well. She is professional, polite, and very understanding. Our child always looks forward to her lessons and her French has really improved since she started taking lessons from Veronique.
Veronique helped me prepare for my French placement exam and for my upcoming study abroad courses. She is very patient and answered any questions that I had. Since she is a native French speaker, she was able to help me learn exactly what I needed to go to France and taught me phrases and verbs that I would need on a regular basis during my time there. Her flexible schedule was very helpful, we even did a few lessons over Skype and that worked very well. She was able to tailor our sessions around my needs, which really helped me improve my French! At the end of our sessions I felt prepared for my exam and more confident in my conversational skills. I would highly recommend Veronique!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
