STUDENTS' TESTIMONIALS

''Caroline is quite an exceptional teacher. She is adept at constructing lessons to make the most effective use of time, while maintaining an atmosphere of care and humour which makes the work so much more enjoyable.''
Bryan Ward

''Caroline is a truly engaging teacher. Her love for languages and teaching is clearly evident with her enthusiastic and fun method of delivery. After a few failed to learn French since school, she gave me the confidence and belief that I could succeed. Unlike previous teachers, this was not just a job for her, but a vocation! Inspirational!''
Clive S.

''I was part of a small group Caroline tutored in French earlier this year. Caroline has a great focus on getting people talking in French and gaining confidence in the language. Her knowledge of teaching and supporting learners is her greatest attribute. Great empathy with students – highly recommended.''
