A great start to Latin. My daughter was very engaged and enjoyed the session tremendously. She came in reluctantly but is now looking forward to her next lesson all thanks to how Janet engaged her and broke down complex concepts into understandable bites.

Private French Teacher

I've been teaching French for 14 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

"Gabrielle is a fantastic teacher. She not only is a native French speaker she is also a grammar guru! She has helped me finally understand my verb conjugations (probably because she teaches young children and can reduce the information to the simplest terms - thanks Gabrielle). She’s also patient and lovely and wonderful to work with. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier."
