Désirée is very knowledgeable and is very helpful in explaining French grammar.

Désirée has in depth knowledge in French grammar. She is very good at teaching her students the extended grammar/ vocabulary knowledge hidden inside a sentence that looks easy. She is very patient in correcting the pronunciation of her student as well.

Great Tutor

Desiree is a wonderful tutor!! We been going to her since August. She sends great homework home with my daughter. She also sends follow up emails with helpful websites. We are very happy with Desiree, and feel my daughter is learning a lot.

Great tutor

Desiree is a very good tutor as she did a great job helping our daughter to improve her French. We could see our daughter grades improving since the classes started. She is much more confident on this language now. I guess a good tutor has to be a bridge between the student and the subject they teach. Unfortunately, most tutors don't understand that their mission is to encourage the student to cross this bridge by their own. Desiree really did a great job teaching/coaching our daughter to make the right steps to reach another level on her French. She is kind, patient, on time, very professional and a lovely person to work with. I can only say THANK YOU to Desiree for the attention and support she has dedicated to our daughter. I wish her all the best.

Very Cordial and Flelxible

Our class with Desiree was very enjoyable and informative. She is happy to work with us on specific questions we have and does not force her agenda on us. We are pleased to go at our own pace, which in some areas is advanced and in others not. We look forward to more lessons with her.

Great!

Wonderful tutor for my struggling French II student! Very patient and helpful, sending great links for study between meetings and emphasizing the basics - tremendous find! Update: We made it through the semester seeing Desiree weekly, with a 10 point improvement! Desiree has really helped her knowledge base and her confidence! Thank you, Desiree and WyzAnt!

Amazing French Tutor

I am so glad to have found this amazing tutor to help my stepson. He had been struggling with several concepts in his French 2 class. Ms. Desiree sent me helpful links and games that even further explained and supported what he had learned in his session with her. He came home excited because he had a learning breakthrough. He said the magic words that all parents want to hear, "it's easy now." Thanks Desiree!!! We'll be back!!!

Amazing Instructor!!

Honestly I was a little overwhelmed by all the choices of teachers available but we prayed and Desiree is THE BEST choice for my 15 year old daughter. My daughter is so excited for every "hour" lesson. Desiree takes her time and is an excellent and flexible teacher. I am surprised at how quickly she is learning and Desiree works with her to make sure she is pronouncing words correctly. She is accountable to me with a description of each weekly lesson so I know exactly what my daughter is working on. She sends her home with audio and books to work on and stays in touch with me if needed. I feel so blessed to have found Desiree.
