Great first lesson, Karine is very knowledgeable and took the time to understand my current level and goals. Looking forward to continuing with her and improving my French.

I booked a class with Karine to refresh my French prior to a professional interview - having not regularly spoken French for a number of years. Karine was helpful both with the linguistic and presentational aspects of interview preparation, and was also able to provide specific guidance for content, drawing on experience in recruitment. Great fun and really helpful - I would highly recommend.

Karinne is a great teacher, competent, tactful, flexible and capable to adjust to different requirements and levels of knowledge. She is versatile in her methods of instruction combining different class activities. She provided me with ample instruction and gave me all the necessary feedback and encouragement. I definitely recommend her to students of all levels!

I do not have enough words to describe how wonderful Karine is as a French tutor. Professional, well prepared, organized and knows how to teach. Clearly experienced and straight to the point. Flexible and very patient. She will encourage you to learn and understand French. I started as beginner and I am progressing faster than expected. Highly recommended !

I am spending an hour a week with Karine and already I can tell I am improving my French. She makes learning fun and interesting. Each week we focus on a topic. I am gaining confidence in speaking and a new appreciation for the language. THANK YOU KARINE

Karine is wonderful. Learning a language, such as French, is challenging. Having the proper instructor is critical. Thankfully Karine has turned out to be that instructor. She is kind, patient, skilled, and most importantly understanding of my entirely nonexistent skill set in French. I am looking forward to my future lessons with her!
- Nick H. from Boston, MA
Karine has been great at making me feel comfortable speaking French, and she's precise in identifying what needs to be addressed and reviewed. Her fluid teaching style makes a great learning environment, yet her ability to create step-by-step goals really brings all of her lessons together. Karine has also made the language a lot more cohesive in my mind by helping me understand the big picture when studying French. Karine is a great tutor for anyone looking for a better, long-lasting understanding of French.

Karine is a fantastic French tutor. She and I have just begun to work together. The best part about working with her is that she develops a long term language plan with you, so that you may work towards your goals together. She develops the lesson plans herself, according to your level and needs. She is very patient and allows for you to have all of the benefits of a native speaker, but in a comfortable environment. Karine makes the process of learning another language that much less daunting, because she knows her stuff very well. She has able to help me with my pronunciation and reading, all while being enthusiastic and helpful (major confidence boost!). She is also flexible, which is so helpful for someone who is busy, especially with the meeting location. I highly recommend Karine as a French language tutor.

My son tends to be a bit stubborn and does not want to admit that he is struggling with French. Karine is very patient with him and manages to get him to engage in lessons. She is persistent and makes sure that he understands concepts before moving on. As a result, he is establishing a solid foundation in French and his grades are improving. I highly recommend Karine!
- Katie A. from Charlestown, MA
I thought that I was a hopeless case for acquiring a second language. Even after having studied French in both high school and college, my conversational ability was still poor, and my grammar skills had disappeared. Fortunately, I found Karine through Wyzant. Karine quickly assessed my skill level and made thoughtful adaptations to her curriculum to set goals for my learning outcomes. Karine?s personal approach and thoughtful pedagogy has made the difficulty of learning French a highly gratifying experience. I feel like I am making more progress than I ever did in all of the years of French class in school where I memorized long lists of rules and vocabulary, but couldn?t have a basic conversation in French with a Native speaker. As a Native speaker from France who has also lived in two different English speaking countries, Karine has added value as a tutor. She is able to create clear parallels for students of French to understand common problems that exist. Perhaps because she has a background in journalism, Karine?s French is as crystal clear as it is professional. She can identify all of your phonetic foibles, and often has amazing advice on getting yourself to relax and enjoy the experience of learning. She is flexible on your meeting location, and her price is reasonable. Karine is Wyzant's hidden tutor treasure! I can?t recommend Karine enough as a tutor. It?s my favorite hour of the week!
- Roger D. from Watertown, MA
Karine gave me confidence in casual conversation, I enjoyed her enthusiasm, we spoke in French only and she would help me understand. I appreciated her professional yet very friendly tone, she giving me good feedback on areas to improve, like grammar, past tense and sentence structure. The hour went by very fast as her teaching was very fun.
