When we learned that we were bound for Paris before the end of the year with our two young children ages two and four, we began an urgent search for a French teacher. We wanted to save our children as much “playground shock” as possible by introducing them to the language and culture as soon as possible. We were EXTREMELY fortunate to find Melissa. Drawing on great personal and professional experience, she transported the family to France for an hour or more each week. She became a welcome teacher, friend, and “French” family addition (the children never heard her speak English). We feel Melissa provided just what the children needed to make the French connection. Thank you!!
