My son went from worst to first in French and he loves Francois. After a few months with Francois as his tutor my son's French teacher was glowing in her praise (quite a contrast from pre-Francois days). "What happened?" she asked. Francois happened. Francois makes French fun. He's attentive, creative and just a great teacher. Completely dependable too. Always smiling. (I give my son a lot of credit, too).
