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!

Upbeat and knowledgeable tutor

We asked for help with French grammar and she is tutoring well. We are working on l'imparfait and conditionel. Plan to continue our lessons until the fall. I am being tutored with my granddaughter. Highly recommend Desiree

Exceptional tutor

Desiree has a talent for explaining the rules of the French language so that it’s easy to understand. At school, I’m in a class full of students who were in French immersion through 8th grade (I had stopped in 4th but still managed to test into French 3 after keeping up with it sporadically) so my teacher does not explain much in class. Desiree helped me to bring my grade from a C to a B at the end of last semester. With her help, I am more confident and optimistic that this semester will go much better. She is very patient, encouraging, and friendly, and I enjoy working with her very much. (Ava, 10th grade)

Great tutor

Desiree adapted the class to my skill level while ensuring that our communications were always in French - this was challenging but also rewarding for me. She spoke clearly and explained the grammar and pronunciation rules that helped me understand French in a more meaningful way.

Mauricio, 34 lessons with Desiree

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Desiree is helping our son get through his last couple of semesters taking French in college. We struggled to find someone in the area. Desiree has been great. My son likes her very much and without a doubt, without her help, he would not pass French. We can not thank her enough. You won't be disappointed if you give her a try.

Excellent tutor for reaching your French goals!

Désirée is an amazing tutor. I connected with her to become fluent in French, which is my husband's first language. Her thorough knowledge and extensive resources make each lesson easy to follow and appropriately challenging. Each week she sends activities to work on in between our lessons that are tailored to my French goals. She also provides me with songs, books, and vocabulary to bring French home to my toddlers. I cannot recommend her enough!

Kristin, 80 lessons with Desiree

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.

Ye, 9 lessons with Desiree

Good, patient teacher

She is a very patient teacher and I feel she will make learning French a fun experience. She is providing instruction in a very basic concise manner.

David, 7 lessons with Desiree

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.

Emily, 49 lessons with Desiree

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.
