I have taught French for 40 years to all ages, all levels, from private schools to public high school, junior college, university and adult education. I use games and fun songs for children; for all other levels I find French In Action the Yale University Program to be the very best. It is fast, funny, and totally oral, if the student prefers that approach.

I teach in my home in Berkeley and am flexible with my time.

I can help with the preparation of the Advanced Placement Test in French.

I was in charge of the University of California Berkeley Extension Program Traveling with Scholars for 20 years and return regularly to France. I am married to a very charming Frenchman.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

French

I am French and have taught all levels and all ages for the last 40 years from children to adult education.

I use a direct audio-active method and emphasize speaking over writing or grammar.

Games are important but only if the students enjoy them. Adults are taught through interesting conversations.

My student evaluations have always been excellent.

German

I am a German native and lived in Germany until the age of 25. I have taught German in a private High School in California.

I feel more comfortable teaching adults than children, even though I have a good knowledge of German songs and stories.
