I had 2 weeks before my oral French exam and reached out desperately to the French Professor for some intensive lessons. Martin responded immediately and was able to fit in 8 1-hr lessons before my exam (I am abroad, so finding times was challenging!). We did a number of simulation exams – all exact replicas of the exam – but Martin also leads open-ended conversations in French just to make speaking in French fluid and comfortable. I had a lot of fun talking with him, and enjoyed our conversations. He corrected my mistakes and gave me some good tips. He was also very encouraging and helped to build my confidence, which was really helpful to my success. I got a C!
