First of all, let me put you at ease about any concern regarding my accent. I do NOT have a French accent when I speak English or any other of the languages I tutor. Most people ask me if I am from New England.

I was raised in an international environment, and I began showing a gift for learning foreign languages at age seven.
At age 19, I started tutoring ESL in Brussels, Belgium.

I have taught ESL, French, and Portuguese in California for more than 25 years, both privately and in the classroom, to children and adults, at all levels. In recent years, I have been tutoring Spanish as well.

I hold a BA in music with a minor in pedagogy, and have studied linguistics applied to teaching foreign languages to adults.
I also hold the CELTA certificate (ESL teaching).

I love tutoring, and also enjoy giving group classes to children and adults. I can help you with pronunciation, accent reduction, grammar, general conversational skills, business French or other language listed, remedial French or other language listed, and test preparation.

General Music

I have a B.A. in musicology.
I have taught K through 5 music appreciation and recorder.
I have included classical music appreciation and chanson in my language classes for adults, in fact once had the responsibility of leading a language class solely through French chanson.
I have presented a radio program on Mozart in my late twenties. This weekly program was geared toward an adult audience, and I was responsible for its content. My program producer was going over my notes before airing, and never once had to correct any content.
I have had a specialty in Brazilian music for the last 14 years.
