"You have been a fantastic teacher and a friend. My move to France would have been positively awful had I not
had such a wonderful tuition by you. You are truly an energetic, interesting person who makes people at ease and comfortable in your company. Thank you for everything, Nikki. (Nikki's own website
to help you to move to France; http://frenchentree.com)."
"Vanessa is an excellent teacher who makes lessons interesting and fun. Her knowledge of French, French
customs and history is second to none and her English is as good as any native. Her teaching methods are extremely motivating and encouraging and I now feel confident in travelling
to France knowing I can understand, speak and read the language. Learning French has been a wonderful experience. Carol, Richmond."
"Vanessa, I just wanted to let you know how the exam [To enter the business school
INSEAD in Fontainebleau http://www.insead.edu] went and to thank you for your
wonderful teaching. I passed! The standard was a lot lower than how you describe the DELF - but the grammar was quite tough and only the quality of your teaching made it easier than it was. Still
I want to say that you are the best teacher I have come across in a long time (and I have had many!). Sanjiv, Boston Consulting Group, London W1."
"Vanessa is a brilliant teacher! Bright and full of energy, she ensures that lessons are
captivating and fun. She is also highly organised, so each course – and every lesson within it – is carefully structured to make sure that the many aspects of French language and culture are
covered, as well as various ways of learning – for example, reading, writing, listening and speaking. I would whole-heartedly recommend Vanessa to any
potential student! Gareth Trew, actor and writer." (To learn about Gareth's publications, check at http://garethtrew.wordpress.com).
"I've really enjoyed the lessons so far. Their content has been varied; we've covered a number of different
topics. Vanessa is extremely approachable and helpful, and manages to convey things in French in such a way that, even with my limited vocabulary, they are instantly understandable. Michael,
