“I have been a Francophile virtually my entire life, and have always wanted to learn French. After a couple of years of high school French and a library of French language books resulting in little or no progress, I decided it was now or never to get serious about learning the language. I found Juliette by a stroke of good fortune, and, after a few short months, I’m happy to say I can actually have a conversation in French! I can understand more than I ever imagined, and I don’t feel paralyzed at the thought of speaking French to a stranger…in France! Juliette is so encouraging with her instruction, and doesn’t pressure me with anything I don’t feel comfortable with. I highly recommend Juliette to help any lover of Français to achieve their goals and start speaking the most beautiful language in the world.”
“Juliette is a wonderful teacher and mentor! I’ve loved to write my entire life; and I have notebooks upon notebooks of short essays, life experiences, quotes… pretty much anything that comes to mind! But when it came to writing a novel, although I had many ideas and life experiences to draw inspiration from, my writing was all over the place. With Juliette’s advice, I was able to give my writing more structure, pull my story together, and have it make more sense. Some concrete examples she gave me were to not narrate a character’s entire background at the beginning of the novel. Readers don’t need to know that yet. You do. You can gradually reveal facts as they become relevant to the story. Also, get readers hooked from the beginning by creating suspense! Make them want to keep turning the pages from the moment they start reading your story!
After speaking with Juliette, writing went from being a hobby and an emotional outlet, to being one of the top priorities in my life. She helped make my story go from “blah”, to “Wow! I’m so excited to keep writing and see where this story goes!”
I think it’s fantastic that she is so generous and so willing to help other aspiring writers to become better at what we love most. I am very much looking forward to her online lessons and suggestions!”
