A student (age 15 and over) can normally cover one sublevel of general French, for example Beginner A1 French 101, in 12-15 hours of private lessons. Similarly, a younger student (age 6-15) can normally cover one sublevel of French course for their age group in 8-10 hours of private lessons. Individual results vary.
