I was born and raised in France and completed my education in the U.S. I have been living in California for over 15 years and have tutored multiple subjects, including French, at the University of San Francisco (while I was completing my MBA). More recently, I have tutored kids (as young as 6 years-old), high school students and professionals. I have also prepared students for college entrance exams.

I have passed the CBEST and believe that, in order to acquire a strong command of any given subject, it is critical to build on a good and solid foundation. Therefore, I would be delighted to use my proven track record to help students gain an appreciation for, develop and master French as well as subjects taught in elementary school. I can also help you develop your reading and writing skills, as well as assist you improve your math.

CBEST

The California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) consists of three sections: reading, writing and mathematics.

I passed all three sections of the CBEST in 2011. Therefore, I can teach the newest, most up-to-date material, and strategies to help you pass this exam.

The CBEST is a standardized test designed to evaluate basic reading, mathematics, and writing skills that are important for the job of an educator. It enables you to substitute in the state of California.

The CBEST is a comprehensive exam based on the fulfillment of grades k-12. It must be completed in four hours, and test-takers can use that time to work on any or all of the three sections. It includes a math section that focuses on statistical principles, geometry, algebra, estimation and measurement. The English sections include essay writing and reading comprehension. The latter section includes critical analysis and evaluation, comprehension and context, research as well as reference skills.

Elementary (K-6th)

I believe that elementary school is the time when young students learn the basics that are crucial to success later in life. It is a time when they develop study and learning habits.

I passed the CBEST (California Basic Educational Skills Test) last year and have tutored elementary school children in various subjects for the past few years. In addition, I can adapt to different student personalities and make sure they understand the concepts taught in school.

I regularly use positive reinforcement and can help students with subjects such as reading aloud, writing (sentence formation, cursive), math (additions, subtractions, multiplications, divisions, fractions, and more), as well as other topics. I use flash cards and other tools to help students understand the material covered in elementary education. I am very creative, innovative and hands on.

French

I was born and raised in Paris and completed my education in the U.S. I have been living in California for over 15 years and have tutored French at the University of San Francisco (while I was completing my MBA). More recently, I have tutored French to kids (as young as 4 years old), to high school students and to professionals. I have also prepared students for college entrance exams.

I love tutoring and always find ways to make it interactive, fun and creative. My services are tailored to each student’s individual needs regardless of age and skill level.

I use an interactive method and tailor it to your needs, whether it is to prepare for a trip, or to brush up on your knowledge. Depending on your level and your needs, I use books, CDs, games, flash cards and other visuals to make learning fun and tangible.

I believe that, in order to acquire a strong command of a foreign language, it is critical to build on a good and solid foundation. Therefore, I would be delighted to use my proven track record to help students gain an appreciation for, develop and master the French language.

I can help you develop your reading, writing and conversational skills, as well as assist you improve your grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.

I am very comfortable and efficient working with students one-on-one or in small groups.

A+ Tutor! — I have been studying French with Geraldine for a few months now and highly recommend her for several reasons. First and foremost, she tailors each lesson to the wants and needs of the student. She is extremely patient but also challenges me in a way that helps build my confidence in learning this very difficult language. Geraldine provides new material to go over at each week that builds upon what ...
