Studying for the AP French exam was a daunting task, especially since it is known to be one of the most difficult AP exams. Madame Kerley knew exactly what I needed to demonstrate on the test and explained precisely what the graders were looking for in each section. She helped me work toward that level of performance one week at a time, making the process much more manageable. Outside of our sessions, Madame Kerley encouraged me to watch short youtube dramas in French, which kept the experience entertaining and increased my vocabulary. She pushed me to dive right into the exam-style speaking and writing presentations. This was challenging at first, but with consistent practice, my performance greatly improved within a fairly short time period. Thanks to Madame Kerley’s knowledge, accountability, and feedback, I was comfortable and confident with my French abilities by the time of the exam in May.
