Delphine is a phenomenal French tutor! She is so organised, dedicated and kind-hearted. She creates highly individualised and effective lessons plans. Delphine has taken my French to a whole new level; having improved my confidence and ability, my results improved significantly. I am so appreciative of all that Delphine has done, I’ve loved having her as my tutor.

Delphine is an absolutely fantastic teacher that can help students achieve absolute clarity with the French language, even when mastering the most complex concepts. She is able to make students feel at ease, so that they can productively learn in a comfortable environment. Her many creative resources and exercises reinforce difficult french grammar. Delphine genuinely cares about her students and she tailors her teaching style to the type of student she is teaching. She thereby structures each class carefully, so that students can improve and succeed in the most efficient manner. It was under her amazing teaching skills that I was able to personally succeed in VCE French. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning French!!!

Last year, I got 60% for my Year 11 end of year French Exam, but after finding Delphine, she helped me boost all my Year 12 SAC scores close to or even full marks. Delphine is an excellent tutor who will not only reignite your love for learning French, but also provide detailed and specific notes that will impress your French school teacher/s as well as the examiners. She is very dedicated to each students' needs and levels and makes sure they are able to show off as much as they can in all assessments.

Delphine tutored me in French for 2 years.(Years 11 and 12) She helped me improve so much more than I could have imagined in all of the key aspects(reading, writing, listening, speaking) by providing tailored sessions with plentiful resources. If I was struggling with a certain topic she would go above and beyond to help me understand by creating custom worksheets and exercises. She also introduced me to more complex grammar and sentence structures that I was able to use in my essays and oral to help me stand out from the cohort. As the year went on I could sense significant improvements in my French abilities all thanks to her helpful sessions. Merci beaucoup madame!

I came to Delphine at the beginning of Year 12 for help with all parts of VCE French and over the course of the year, she helped my French to improve exponentially. She always had relevant material and exercises to help me with any parts of the course that i was struggling with and went above and beyond in helping to reinforce that which i was being taught in day school but also in providing support in ways that one could not get from any regular teacher. She was always accomodating in terms of scheduling and is truly invested in and passionate about the French she teaches. Honestly i owe much of my improvement in the subject this year to her.

Delphine taught me for 3 and a half years and I never would have achieved the results I got without her help and guidance. I learnt things in advanced and in more depth compared to what was taught in my school classes, and I even learnt many things that my classmates did not; helping me to stand out in tests. I could not recommend Delphine enough. She is so incredibly helpful and will go above and beyond to help you, and she is so lovely. If you want to improve your French and excel in a class, you must go to Delphine!

Delphine is an amazing french tutor who always puts in so much effort to her sessions. She is a lovely and dedicated person who has a passion for teaching French. Delphine always tailored her lessons to focus on the areas I needed to improve my french. I couldn't have done VCE french without her and I always looked forward to our lessons together.

Delphine Barber - French Tutor 80 05-12-2019
Delphine tutored my 17 year old son for Year 11 and Year 12 French 2019. She proved to be an excellent choice as a tutor and was probably the reason our son continued with Year 12 French. She was very thorough, generous with her time and provided copious notes for our son to take home. She was up-to-date with the Year 12 curriculum and worked to it, in the final year. There was never a problem getting our son to French tutoring; he was always happy to go and enjoyed the lessons. I believe she has the knack of giving students confidence, no matter what their standard of French. Apart from her skills as a tutor, Delphine demonstrated genuine empathy and consideration for our son when he went through difficult times. A quote from our son “Delphine is very approachable and easy to work with. She really cares how you do” I would not hesitate to recommend Delphine as a French tutor – she is first class and we were lucky to find her.

After finishing VCE french in 2018 I can honestly say I could not have done it without Delphine. She was not only extremely helpful, resourceful and organised but also such a warm and understanding person. She truly made me feel comfortable in every session and she was always willing to go above and beyond to help me. She knows the VCE course from back to front and I would highly recommend her as a tutor.

An amazing French tutor. Delphine really helped me improve my skills in all the assessable areas in French in a way I could not have done alone. Furthermore, she puts 100% into her students and truly cares as much about their success as much as they do.

Delphine was and still is an amazing french tutor. Coming to her in such short notice, term 3 of year 12 to be precise, she ensured to make time and room to teach me. She prepares content very early so that when you come to class all the materials are ready to be used. She has plenty of exercises, formula sheets (so useful and vital for orals) and videos that aid in improving you're french. Furthermore, something I really noticed was that she would always take classes longer than the paid 1 hour and throughout the week Delphine corrected all my essays and work. Overall, Delphine is a dedicated, french-loving, motivating teacher who never fails to make class the most enjoyable! :) Would definitely recommend her to any age student that is learning french.

Delphine is without a doubt the best tutor I've ever had. She helped me find my passion for French, and I always left our one-on-one sessions feeling stress-free and content. She is a kind, bubbly and patient person to whom I can attribute a lot of my success in French. Delphine provided me with so many resources which helped me prepare well for all my SACs and exams, as well as improve and extent my French. I would highly reccommend Delphine to anyone looking to improve their French!

I’ve had the privilege to have Delphine as my tutor over the final VCE year of my studies at school. After moving down from advanced French to mainstream, Delphine gave me the confidence and skills I needed to do the best I could. She is the most supportive and helpful tutor I have had and I would highly recommend her to everyone, my only regret was that I didn’t start with her earlier.

I have worked with Delphine for the whole duration of my VCE high school and can confidently say that Delphine made VCE French so enjoyable and less stressful. She is able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each student and ensures that every student feels confident and prepared for their upcoming assessments. She offers many resources (including exercises, notes and audio) which help immensely to essay writing, reading comprehension and the listening component of the VCE exam. I would not have achieved such remarkable results without Delphine's help. I strongly recommend Delphine if you want to succeed in VCE French or just to improve your French in general.

I've had the immense pleasure to have learnt from and known Delphine over almost the entirety of my high-school career. Delphine nurtures a love and appreciation for the French language beyond the classroom with an incomparable enthusiasm for her students' success. She was always well-prepared with engaging material and catered to my needs and interests. I achieved some incredible result in French for VCE, in large part, a testament to her dedication and encouragement. I could not recommend Delphine enough.

Delphine is an outstanding French tutor and one I would recommend to anyone seeking to drastically improve their language skills. Her lessons are always well planned and relevant to the VCE French curriculum. Without Delphine’s knowledge and help, I would not have been able to achieve the study score I received in this subject. Her ingenious learning strategies and tips in grammar and extensive help in all aspects of French enabled me to feel completely prepared for all of my assessments. Delphine’s warmth, enthusiasm and encouragement created a calming atmosphere and made French highly enjoyable. She has boosted my confidence and inspired me to continue learning French beyond my secondary schooling years.

I studied VCE Units 3&4 French in 2017 and I obtained a raw study score of 49. I would not have achieved such a high score had it not been for Delphine. She helped me tremendously throughout the years by providing a wide range of resources to enhance my French vocabulary and grammar. She also did a lot of general conversation and detailed study practice with me every week to build up my confidence for the oral exam. Most of all, she was always supportive and a joy to be around, therefore, making my studies in French all the more enjoyable.

For two years Delphine has been such a great support for my studies in VCE French. She helped me to improve from average grades to top scoring scores in year 12. She is very experienced and has many resources to help me excel in French. Tutoring with her has been the best decision in order for me to become more confident in French. I cannot recommend her services enough!

French 40 02-02-2018
I have had the pleasure of taking lessons from Delphine in year 12. She is such a genuine person and a highly talented teacher who tailors each lesson to your specific needs. She has helped me improve my writing a lot, by working on weak grammar points and providing me with strategies and tips to tackling exam prompts. When it comes to speaking, she makes you feel so comfortable and at ease so you are not worried about making mistakes. She highlights grammar and pronounciation errors (no matter how many times you make them, she is so patient) and also develops your responses and ideas so you can stand out. As much as VCE French can get stressful, Delphine has a way of making you enjoy it and getting the most out of it.

Could not reccomend highly enough. Delphine took me from an average student to well above average, and thanks largely to her I was able to reach a score which surpassed my wildest expectations. Being french she has a wealth of knowledge that you just cannot get from a non-french speaker, countless times Delphine has corrected the french of not just myself but my own teacher. Overall an amazing all round tutor.

I am forever grateful to have found Delphine in my final two years of high school. Having lost interest in French for a period of time, she has managed to rekindle my passion for French - using many different techniques to teach and make French interesting in all components of reading, writing, listening and speaking. With a vast range of resources, she is able to guide and teach French for SACs and Exams down to the finest detail. Delphine's kind, supportive and incredibly patient nature has allowed me to learn both comfortably and willingly and has enabled me to become more confident in the language of French.

Delphine is an incredibly talented, enthusiastic and compassionate French tutor who without doubt elevated me to the great success I achieved at the end of Yr 12. Her knowledge of the course content and VCE tricks proved to be invaluable when writing essays or preparing my detailed study oral, particularly when fine details and intricacies are often overlooked in the school classroom. Her teaching style is highly individual and always tailored to the student's pace and learning style, with pre-prepared lesson programs that shot me ahead of my peers at school. Her essay guides are also some of the best resources I ever picked up in French and ensured that I consistently scored 19s and 20s for my writing. Aside from that, Delphine is simple a lovely character, a great person to chat with and the overall environment of the lessons yearned me to return back every week. I am eternally grateful for what Delphine has done to improve my French skills and raise my appreciation of the French culture.

I'm lost for words to describe the help and encouragement that Delphine has provided me during classes. She is a very passionate, approachable and animated tutor who is always prepared to go out of her way to help you progress and reduce stress during peak periods. She has helped me to do my best in VCE French in the Oral Exam, Written Exam and the Alliance Francaise Berthe Mouchette Competition. She was able to help me in all aspects of learning French from boosting confidence when speaking to key stylistic grammar techniques that brightened any piece of writing. I highly recommend Delphine for anyone seeking a French Tutor.

Excellent French Tutor 80 07-01-2016
Harnessing her insight as a native French speaker and a competent tutor, Delphine was able to pinpoint my needs and vastly extend my capabilities. Equipped with a plethora of resources, Delphine was readily prepared to impart knowledge and strategies that proved crucial for SACs and exams. With a keen eye for progress and a genuine care for me as a student, she allowed me to guide the lessons whilst ensuring that what she identified as areas of concern were tended to. Delphines encouraging and supportive teaching style is one to which I responded well. Without her guidance, I never would have obtained such excellent French results throughout my VCE years. I always looked forward to our sessions and will forever appreciate all that Delphine has done for me.

Delphine is an exemplary French tutor. I studied VCE Unit 3 & 4 French in 2014, and Delphine helped me immensely, particularly in regards to the oral examination. Delphine provided me with a wealth of knowledge and understanding, particularly in the area of my detailed study, as well as helping me by correcting my grammar, ensuring that what I was saying was always sophisticated and accurate. Delphine put a great amount of effort into my studies, not only within the time frame of our tute, but also during her own time. Delphine constantly gave me practical, beneficial advice regarding my writing, which allowed me to go into my exam with a confident, assured mind frame. Delphine evidently had a vested interest in my success in VCE, and encouraged and motivated me constantly throughout the year. She fully prepared me for each aspect of the examination, allowing me to perform at my best. I would not have been able to achieve the success I did in VCE without the help of Delphine, however, above all, Delphine was constantly friendly, supportive, and a joy to be around, therefore making my studies in French all the more enjoyable.

I really enjoyed my tutoring lessons with Delphine. I always looked forward to learning French with her and she really built my love for the French language. I found that her classes put French into a worldwide context and made learning French seem like a useful skill, rather than just a VCE subject. I would recommend any student who wants to improve their communication skills in French to Delphine.

I received a raw study score of 44 for French in VCE and I could not have done so without the help of Delphine! Delphine's assistance allowed me to change from a student who struggled with French grammar and the French accent into one who was a finalist in the Alliance Francaise de Melbourne French Oral competition. Her patience and friendly demeanour allowed me to ask questions without feeling embarrassed and her weekly email corrections of essays ensured that I learnt from my mistakes. Merci Delphine!

I would not have passed IB French without Delphine! After many disasters with school teachers, she was so accommodating and understanding of my situation, and ready to help me in preparation of my final exams. Lacking in many areas, Delphine quickly identified them and then targeted them in our weekly sessions. It was always fun, informative and I always walked away feeling as though I had learnt something. I could never thank her enough for her commitment and understanding and assistance, I highly recommend Delphine as a tutor!

Delphine is a superb tutor in French. She has great patience with someone not able to grasp the accent. Her lessons are very well prepared with plenty of basic sheets of grammar to learn from. She sets homework which she checks at the start of the next lesson. There is a huge advantage in learning French from one whose native language is French. I can recommend without reservation Delphine as a tutor to anyone of any standard or age, interested in learning French as a beginner or for coaching for external exams.

My experience with Delphine was invaluable. I always came away from our sessions feeling as though I had made great progress. She is always optimistic and friendly and would go above and beyond to help me. She is particularly helpful with oral preparation which is perhaps the most difficult aspect of the subject. She is inspiring to listen to and I have fond memories of my time with Delphine.
