I am writing in support of an organisation I have used extensively for Modern Language tuition at school over the last two years. Voulez-vous parler, run by Sophie Marette, has helped myself as both Head of Year and the Lead Teacher for Gifted and Talented to support, enrich and extend the interest, progress and performance of students ranging from 13 - 18 years with Key stage 3, 4 and 5 in French, Italian and Greek. The latter two languages have been taken up by a number of students as a new subject and I have been genuinely impressed with the patient and professional expertise that has been exhibited by a range of tutors to these beginner students. 


I use the exceptional French tutors that are supplied by Sophie to drive the attainment levels of capable students who lack technique, confidence and vocabulary in the subject. The services provided have also allowed the school to increase its uptake of languages at both GCSE and A level. The tuition complements the learning in lessons admirably. The tutors exude a 'love of the linguistic' passing this on to the students with a real enthusiasm and passion for their language. I continue to be impressed by the efficient and professional way in which Sophie co-ordinates the provision and services that the school uses Voulez-vous parler. Our school uses the services for approximately 25 hours each month and find it very good value for money.

                                                                 "As promised, a quick note to say how impressed we were with the help you gave our son in preparing for his French oral GCSE.                                                                        You were able to come to give a lesson at very short notice (just a couple of days) and were always very punctual for lessons. Our                                                                   son found you gave him a lot of confidence in preparing for his oral and your advice was very clear. I would thoroughly                                                                                          recommend your lessons".

"Sophie provided me with one-to-one French language tuition to help me improve my communication and performance at board meeting in Paris. Throughout the sessions, Sophie was engaging, professional and just importantly she was good fun to work with. I subsequently engaged Sophie to provide the same service for one of my team with equally impressive results. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

"I have been working with Sophie on my French language skills for 3 years with excellent results. Sophie has a strong focus on the person's individual skills and style; she is working with great enthusiasm and motivation.

Without a doubt, Sophie's language teaching skills are on a very high level and I can certainly recommend working with her."

"We have been very pleased with the French tutors, they have helped my children reach their potential. A good asset is that the tutors are native French speakers so their conversational French is excellent. The agency provides an efficient and flexible service. Parents will not be disappointed and tutors come highly recommended."

Mrs R, Essex, March 2011
