Sisterhood

“Sisters are different flowers from the same garden.”

~ Anonymous

Eva & Sarah, my sisters are such an inspiration.

When I first talked about launching my own online tutoring business, my sisters Eva and Sarah, were my cheerleaders. They encouraged me and urged me to make it a reality. Eva is a mom of three lovely children who is homeschooling them and a blogger too. Despite her busy schedule being mom of three and writing her blog, she created a fantastic brochure and put together my website. Thanks to my sister Sarah I now have a beautiful logo which was designed by a good friend of hers. I now have an online presence, brochure and an amazing logo.

I’m blessed to have such amazing and talented sisters.

Please visit and follow Eva’s blog Parenting Freestyle.

My sister Sarah has an online business selling unique handcrafted earrings called Colour Me Wild on Instagram.

Thank you John

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”

Anais Nin

John Luker is a blessed and wonderful friend, a creative genius with a generous heart. I met him through his sister Maria and his wonderful wife Ethel (who passed away last December and is with the Lord. She was a beautiful soul.)

John and I were casually chatting when I mentioned by struggles with my site Voila Français. I did not know of his interests in designing sites nor of his amazing skills. He took a look at my site and selflessly helped me to revamp it. Words cannot express my gratitude. He was truly God sent. He transformed my site from a caterpillar form to a beautiful butterfly. Thank you John.

John has a wonderful blog called “Eat Luv Live“. It shares his journey with healthy eating, loving, and living. Please do visit his site.

Coco Chanel

“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.”

~ Coco Chanel

This describes Gabrielle “Coco Chanel” perfectly. She lived life on her terms. Having grown up in poverty, she built a life by using her skills and connections. Today her fashion brand is well known the world over. She popularized casual chic and her designs were meant to be worn without a corset.  She also designed the popular interlocked cc monogram that is associated with her brand since 1920. Her empire now boasts fashionable clothing, bags, perfumes, cosmetics and accessories.

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” 
~ Coco Chanel

I believe that her brand did embody this thought. Everything about her brand was classy and elegant.

She was unapologetically unique. Despite all the controversy surrounding her love life and her alleged spy work, she tirelessly focused on doing what she wanted, when she wanted and did it the best way, she knew she could. There is something to admire about Coco Chanel. I love some of her quotes. She recreated her life the way she wanted it to be.

“I don’t care what you think of me. I don’t think of you at all.”

~ Coco Chanel

Who is Rachel?

Salut! I’m Rachel – the founder and owner of Voila Français. I thought I would share a little bit about myself.

I started learning French at a young age in Switzerland where I spent my early childhood. I acquired a fluency having lived in the French speaking part of this country. I developed a passion for the language and continued to pursue my higher studies in French. I have taught French for the last 18 years in different capacities and my love for the language can be seen in my teaching techniques. Having taught at private institutions, I decided to extend this to an online French tutoring program. And so Voila Français was born.

At Voila Français, we offer several learning packages to suit your interests whether you are a student, professional, traveler or language lover. We also offer tutoring for school and college students based on their curriculum.

Come and join me on this journey.

I can’t wait to share this adventure with you!

Sincerely ,

Rachel
