Perfect! Andree was very prompt in responding, and offered a free lesson. We continue to meet on a regular basis for lessons. I find her friendly, and fun to learn with. She is always well prepared, and often finds new ways to teach me French. I would highly recommend her for tutoring.

Andree's response

Robyn was a very diligent student and was keen to do her homework. She always came prepared with lots of questions. She responded avidly with all my suggestions and was a quick learner. We both felt that she was much more prepared for her trip in France. It was a real pleasure to teach her. Way to go Robyn! I cannot wait to hear about your trip!! and how you could speak more easily during your journey! Andrée

I know Andree through Vernon Immigrant Services as i am learning English as my Senod language with her. I relate well with her because her sthle is very kind and forgiving. She corrects my mistakes with humor and we havecfun. We meet at the library and after reading funny books , we use them for comprehension, for enhancing vocabulary and touching grammar in the same time. As a Korean, certain sounds are difficult for me and I practice with Andree. I revommend Andree because she is a good teacher and you will learn well with her. She is trustworthy being always on tme and prepared for every meeting
