Great start!

My first tutoring session and I'm just starting to learn French. Olena is organized and very patient. I had done some preparation for the class and she quickly adapted the lesson based on what I knew. She really helped with my pronunciation. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Ken, 2 lessons with Olena

Very thorough and organized tutor - highly recommend!

I have taken two lessons with Olena and she is very meticulous and detailed in her lesson plans. You can tell she loves to teach and learning from her is a breeze as she is very organized, positive, and patient. I am looking forward to comparing where I am now with conversational French and where I will be in a couple of months.

Cynthia, 20 lessons with Olena

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Olena reviewed and provided valuable suggestions to improve a French essay. This helped my daughter finish her work on time. Will be definitely seeking her help in the future on a regular basis. My daughter is already recommending Olena to her friends.

Honor French

Olena has been tutoring my 9th graders for weeks now and she does an excellent job. My daughter feels so much better and comfortable with her class. We are very happy.

Jeanne , 72 lessons with Olena

Great start

This was my first time with Olena, and my first re-entry into French for some time. She did a great job identifying my strengths and weaknesses with a series of quick exercises, and then we dove into a review of the basics. She left me with some homework to work on, which was also great. Overall, I felt very comfortable during my first lesson - Olena is very supportive, and I felt fine letting her know when I was having difficulty with a question and she would help me work through finding an answer. I look forward to working with her again.

Mackenzie, 1 lesson with Olena

Friendly and easy to communicate with

Olena has helped me tremendously. I learned most of the curriculum for French 2 in only a matter of 5 lessons. She's very patient and efficient. I would definitely come back to her in need of any help in French.

Azza, 3 lessons with Olena

Forming questions

Olena prods along with us, always cheerful, always encouraging. As students we need to spend more time out of class on French. That said reading comprehension keeps improving.

Roger, 51 lessons with Olena

Very patient and knowledgeable!

Going into our first tutoring session, I had a very basic understanding of the French language. Olena took the time to get me more comfortable with some of what I already knew and was struggling with. She also helped me with my pronunciation of the French alphabet, and we even touched on numbers. Looking forward to our next session!

Jared, 2 lessons with Olena

patient and flexible

Able to switch gears when life got in the way and I could not get to my homework. Still made the lesson very helpful.
