“I did a lot of research before settling on a french language education provider. I came across Anaïs and when I made contact with her, I found her to be approachable, thorough and thoughtful. I explained to her what I seek to gain and we've discussed my level of french. Anaïs was keen to meet my requirements and shortly thereafter connected me with Hugo.
Hugo is a high skilled teacher who has a methodical approach. He is very focused and cares about progress. What I most appreciate about Hugo is the fact that he is quick to correct my grammar or any faults in pronunciation - something my former french teachers didn't do as well. Hugo is also very proactive with homework and finds material on areas I would like to improve at my level. I've improved massively during my work with him and I hope to continue to work with him in the foreseeable future.
Overall, I highly recommend Anaïs' services for anyone who is keen to improve their french language skills. I have not only improved, I've had a long journey before finding the right service provider for me and have been disappointed many times in the past but with Anaïs, I could not be happier. ”
“Anais responded very quickly to my initial inquiry and was pleasant to talk to. She was keen to understand my aims and suggested a course of action accordingly. I was matched with a fantastic tutor, Hugo. After just six lessons I have seen a marked difference in my French speaking - my vocabulary has expanded, I am feeling more confident, and he has tailored the lessons to suit my needs and interests. I couldn't recommend him, or Anais' company, enough!”
“I am attending French private lessons since January and i am enjoying it a lot. Anais and the teachers are very professional and available to accommodate all needs. Also, I had lessons with different teachers and when I found myself comfortable with one in particular (ie Hugo), I could keep booking my lessons always with him. Highly Recommended. ”
“My daughter is enjoying her lessons with Hugo very much. The lessons strike the right balance between conversation and grammar, and he adjusts his approach to the lessons to meet her needs. She and Hugo have a built a good rapport, and she looks forward to lessons every week. We happily recommend Hugo as a French tutor! ”
“Excellent one-to-one lessons. Anais paired me with Hugo, a young Belgian teacher for online lessons, one hour a week. While I had reached an intermediate level with personal study, I was not confident enough to converse freely with native speakers. Within only a handful of weeks my speaking, listening and reading skills had greatly improved, and I had built up a new confidence that I was lacking before. Hugo was a relaxed but thoughtful teacher, and the lessons and suggested homework were always interesting and fun. ”
“Fantastic programme which can also be tailored on a lesson by lesson basis to suit your needs ... I personally am going through the course but wanted to specifically focus and relate to my career as well as a bit of language help when travelling :) ! Anais always goes above and beyond. Hugo is a great tutor, makes learning fun and very much enjoy our weekly lessons! My french has come on leaps and bounds since under his tuition!”
