Almaje tutoring was essential in finessing the key parts of my french fluency and exam preparation. The one to one tutoring allowed me to focus on very specific paets of grammar and vocabulary, whereas the intensive holiday sessions targeted exam performance and the expectations of examiners for the oral and written sections

Hi Marilyne, Vivek scored 99.65 ATAR. We are really proud of him. Thank you very much for your teaching and support. Cheers Surekha (Vivek’s mum)
Marilyne’s passion for the French language and culture is both inspiring and contagious. Coming from an Asian background, I initially found it challenging to completely immerse myself in a vastly different culture. However, Marilyne taught me how to adopt a “French” attitude in both the oral and written components of VCE French. I am extremely grateful to have been taught by her.

The first word Marilyne taught me was “épanouir” (to flourish). This word reflects my experience with Marilyne! Marilyne’s French tuition throughout VCE consisted not only of developing a solid understanding of grammatical concepts, but introducing me to broad cultural and critical ideas for lifelong learning. She imbued each lesson with enthusiasm and passion, making French so enjoyable to study in what is otherwise such a stressful period. She encouraged me to write and speak in a way that reconciled my passions with exam exceptions. As a result, I came first in the oral component of the Alliance Française Melbourne – Berthe Mouchette Competition. She is a uniquely gifted and energetic teacher who made my love for French blossom!
Olympia, VCE 2014
I came to Marilyne only a few months before my VCE French exam, however in that short period of time the improvement in both my written and oral work was enormous. Marilyne is truly an exceptional and inspirational teacher. I would like to thank her for her guidance, experience and passion that enabled me to achieve a study score way above my expectations.
Lauren, VCE 2014
I was prepared extremely well for my VCE French exam. Marilyne knows every aspect of the course in detail, and I felt confident that she would pinpoint areas for which needed improvement and we worked on those each week perfecting and extending my skills. I was pleased with my final results and would not have reached the level I did without Almaje tutoring.
Evangeline, VCE 2014
Learning under Madame Lopez was fantastique! Her classes were incredibly helpful in building up my French oral and written skills, as well as always being enjoyable and interesting. The flexibility of the one on one sessions meant we were free to work at a pace I was comfortable with and explore aspects of French culture I may not have been able to otherwise. I loved the relaxed and friendly atmosphere our classes had, she was always willing and able to answer any questions I asked whilst also encouraging me to extend my thinking and do the best I could- both in VCE and for the future.
Rebecca, VCE 2014
I would not have received the mark I ultimately obtained in VCE French without Marilyne and would recommend her to any student looking for a fun, interactive way to improve and perfect their French!
