My son stopped French lesson two years ago when his high school discontinued French program, and we were looking for a tutor who could give him a short-term, intensive French class so that he can improve his very shaky French. My son has had Nilo for about a month--1.5 hr lesson, 2 times a week. We are very happy with Nilo's instruction. She is strong in every sector of French--grammar, reading, composition, and conversation; more importantly, she knows how to communicate, explain, and encouraging my son. They spent the first week deciding on curriculum, while reviewing basic grammar and vocabulary, and then they started moving really fast with lots of homework, which my son does willingly and dutifully. We are pleased that my son made a remarkably rapid progress within a month. I can't wait to see how much more progress he will make with Nilo. The best part of Nilo's teaching is that she not only teaches French, but also teaches what are the qualities to learn a new language successfully--structure, patience, self-discipline, diligence, and dedication. Nilo is one of the best teachers my son has ever had. I wish more teachers at public schools were like her.
