"I have been seeing Frederique on a one to one basis over the last five years and it is true to say that I have learnt more conversational French in the period than over the previous sixty years! With her help, I have also largely overcome my aversion to grammar.
Frederique is patient and forgiving, speaks slowly and with perfect diction and gives praise where due and gently chastises when I make a hash of it.
She is the perfect professional teacher and I genuinely cannot recommend her highly enough. Her language skills are second to none and she understands perfectly what is required at all times."

"Frederique is by far the best teacher I have ever had - not only was she extremely kind, her lessons were enjoyable and very informative at the same time. She always worked hard to make sure I knew everything I needed to, and genuinely cared about me doing well, and I am very grateful to her. There is no way I would have got my A* at GCSE and A at AS level without her help - I was really struggling with French when I went to her, and she brought me up to an extremely high level, and I really cannot stress enough what part she played in that - I am so thankful I got her as a teacher, because had I not, I can confidently say there is no way I would have done as well. I would highly recommend her to anyone - you'll see for yourself what a brilliant teacher she is."

"Frederique is a dedicated teacher, who obviously enjoys her work.  She is always enthusiastic in her teaching, she pitches the lessons to the right level, always encouraging the student and making the lessons interesting and informative.  Her pastoral care is exemplary and Frederique has a great compassion for all her pupils.

We count ourselves lucky to have found her and can highly recommend her work unreservedly to others."

"I really enjoyed all of my lessons with Frederique over the past 4 years: they're always fun and engaging as well as informative, so learning French never felt like a chore. We did a lot of work on extending my knowledge of grammar beyond the school's syllabus and essay writing, which raised the standard of my written French enormously: all the hard work definitely paid off during the A level exam, because I'd gained a lot of confidence in thinking freely in another language as well as grammatical accuracy."

"I really liked your lessons; it was very effective and funny. We went through the topics of: family, animals, clothes, school, weather, seasons, festivals etc…
It is a shame that we moved out from Colchester, otherwise I would go every week…"

Levente, 7 years old. (Colchester)

"Frederique has been tutoring me for French Language . I find her to be extremely reliable, trustworthy and an excellent teacher. She has always shown patience/enthusiasm and through her professionalism my ability to speak/write French has come on leaps and bounds! She has gone beyond what was required, to help me achieve my goals! Each week I look forward to my lessons with Frederique."

Rachel, 38 years old. (Colchester)

"Frederique took me from a predicted E grade to one mark of an A grade in my GCSE's in just a few months, and allowed me to work through the modules in my own time making sure I fully understood everything along the way.
Thank you very much."

"I would like to thank you for all your enthusiasm, help and patience, I feel I have learnt many things in our short time and have already put to good use over here.
Best wishes."

Serena, 45 years old (Colchester, Essex)

"Thank you for all you have done for me and taught me. I would have no hope of passing if it wasn’t for you. You made me love French again!

Thank you again!"

Beth, 18 years old. (Maldon)

"I cannot thank you enough for all your help and encouragement.
You have made me like and even LOVE French again!
Everything seems so easy once you’ve explained it!"
