I believe that memorization works better through intriguing material that suits the level and age of each student.

I look forward to meeting you to access the wonderful and rich experience of French language acquisition!

Great first session!

Scheduling my first French session with Desiree was terrific. She created a structured plan and was encouraging and supportive, which did wonders to calm my nerves as it had been some time since I studied with a French teacher.

Erin, 6 lessons with Desiree

Absolutely the Best!

My daughter almos dropped out school because she had 30 assignments due within 4 days. It is a web based college class with no lecture. She has taken French before, but it has been several years. After meeting with Desiree for two sessions she was able to complete the assignments on time and received an A on all of them. Thank you for your help Desiree!

Excellent French tutor

My daughter is taking French online and really struggling with learning a language that way. Desiree was able to get her scheduled almost immediately and was a huge help to her. She obviously loves the language and was very skilled at identifying where my daughter was struggling and quickly forming a plan to help her.
