Laurine has been the private French teacher to my son, now 9, for a year. My son has some additional needs and is flexi-schooled. He requires kindness, patience, humour and challenging work in order to apply himself. Laurine has provided all four throughout and I hope she will be able to teach my son French through GCSEs and higher exams. Without a doubt, she has given him the confidence to approach Spanish and Latin studies and belief that he has an ability with languages. Our family is not French-speaking and it is not possible every week to practise the new aspects of French taught by Laurine in the last lesson. Laurine is always understanding though and never makes my son feel bad if she needs to repeat something. Each week, Laurine arrives with a bagful of beautifully made, colourful exercises and games and is always happy to leave films or books for extra work. She is an exceptional teacher and I feel so lucky that Language Melody sent her to us. I am sure any child who is taught by Laurine will feel happy and learn well.
