Sessions and Fees

Each lesson is specifically tailored to each individual student and various media elements are used in order to stimulate the learning process (reading, interactive games, use of white board etc.). The lessons are focused on learning but also on having fun!

PLEASE NOTE: VicFrench Tutoring does not offer any courses, we specialize in private one-to-one tutoring focusing on the conversational component. Our students need to have a continued French base in order to fully benefit from the tutoring (we only take students who are in French Immersion, or take French as a subject in Middle/High school and want to pursue long term bilingualism).

The sessions throughout the year take place at private schools within the Greater Victoria, through Skype, at certain library branches and at the residence of the tutor (close to Victoria General Hospital) beside large windows overlooking the garden- Parents are welcome to stay in the waiting area if they have no other children; if there are siblings, there is a beautiful park walking distance where the siblings can be outdoors and have fun. 

For adults: lessons are focused mainly on conversations; if basic writing and grammar is requested, this can be incorporated in the lessons as well. For a more advanced French learning in essay writing, students can be referred to a Professor.

*Once the type of session is chosen, online registration is required with a non-refundable $17 registration fee (per registration, per child if more then 1 child in the family) in order to open a time slot (new, as of January 1st 2016).  

**Please note, Madame Ghanem tends to have long term students so does not take too many students at a time as she wants to focus her attention on providing a quality experience. Many times students request an additional lesson or a change for a different time slot to prepare for an exam- Lesson duration and time slots are subject to availability, contact us for more details.
