After just a few classes, Stephane identified the areas of French grammar and pronunciation which require my focused attention. During the class, resources and exercises are added to the screen in a nearly instantaneous fashion. (There is no down time).

This was one of the best classes I've taken in French! Stéphane is an excellent balance of being patient and letting you make mistakes but also being firm and guiding you through the errors at the end. Instead of telling you your mistakes, he allows you to guess them, which is a great technique! The classes are also very personalized, and he is open to focusing on and discussing whatever you need. It also helps that he is friendly and can carry on a conversation. Stéphane is the kind of teacher I need right now that I'm transitioning from intermediate to advanced.
