Over many years of teaching (10 in France and 10 in the United States,) I've developed my own method. Most French methods I've seen are either incomplete or unclear and complicated; many are often too difficult to follow for a student who doesn't already have a good knowledge of French.

Also, I have a perfect grasp of French grammar, being an author in both languages. It can be quite complex so I broke it down into simple, easy to understand steps.
I have learned to assess what my students missed in class or never learned, what they need to know so they can move forward; I fill in the gaps and holes. I know how to put myself in their shoes and see what it is they're not getting; I never let them be hesitant or uncertain about something. And the way I make sure they understand what we're doing is by getting them to apply everything we learn. I always balance theory with a lot of exercises and drills.

My purpose is to give my students a solid base on which to build their knowledge and skills, one step at a time. When they gain certainty and confidence, they have a lot of fun learning!

And last but not least, I thoroughly enjoy teaching students of all ages and levels. It's one of my passions and I love to impart this enthusiasm to my students.

Testimonial
Corinne was the reason I passed fourth year French. Although I had been sufficient in the subject before, the intensive AP/Honors requirements that came with upper level French lessons were too much for me - I couldn't keep up with the crowd. I quickly discovered that sitting down with a one-on-one teacher - someone who could really adjust to your individual learning type - was a thousand times better than a teacher who was trying to cope with thirty kids who all learned differently.

With Corinne, I soon realized that I wasn't bad at French; in fact, I was even good at it. The confidence she gave me in the language carried over into class time, where my teacher noticed serious improvement. I also began to have a deeper appreciation and understanding for French culture and language because Corinne was a native (something most French teachers can't offer). My tutoring experience with her is unparalleled even today. I had so much fun seeing a language from a new perspective and finally having a good understanding of it that I always looked forward to meeting with Corinne. For anyone who has struggled with French or feels unconfident in their fluency, I would highly suggest working with Corinne. – Annie
