"Jen Bouchard is a highly credentialed, profoundly intelligent French teacher (among many other things) but she remains warm, accessible, patient, and full of humor. She tutored my husband and me privately (and I am currently set to take a French course she is teaching), and we couldn't have hoped for a friendlier face across the table. Learning French, in particular, can seem very intimidating, but Jen always makes it fun. In addition to the grammar and vocab, she also teaches her students the cultural subtleties of the language and the cultures in which the language is spoken. This, among many other qualities, is what sets her apart from other tutors. I've been in language classes before, and fluency has always seemed an impossible goal. Jen is the first teacher I've had who has made me feel like I can achieve fluency."
