Catherine was very knowledgeable and patient. She had great insights into High School French and how to teach children at that level. She is extremely hard working, professional and has the right experience needed. She is also very courteous and punctual.

We hired Catherine to help prepare our Senior for his second year of high school Japanese. He had struggled with Japanese 1 had skipped a year between, so was in need of some refresher lessons. Catherine was well versed in the 2 textbooks that my son needed to be familiar with, was patient, encouraging, thoughtful and very conscientious of his specific situation and challenges. She was always on time and very focused during the lesson. She was also very helpful in working with the teacher who my son would have for Japanese 2. Catherine helped us make sense of what the teacher was asking for prior to class beginning, and took time out of her own schedule to communicate with the teacher via email. I would recommend Catherine to anyone who is wanting to learn Japanese and is tentative with starting the process. She is incredibly supportive and positive and is very sensitive to adapting her methods to your way of learning the language.

Catherine has helped my son understand the basics of French in a very short time. She makes the session interesting for him and is very encouraging. She is also very flexible with scheduling as we enter finals week, which I really appreciate.
