Bonjour! I have been teaching French (I am a native) for over twenty years and still love to do it. My students of all ages and cultural backgrounds have taught me how to devise tricks to make it simpler (I wrote the book on learning 'French Grammar the Easy Way'), fun and helpful to them in class, with friends, on trips and even during business meetings.

So if you are looking for help with your grades, want to refresh your skills or simply are ready to finally learn to speak this beautiful language contact me.

I will also help you with any English assignments, presentation preparation, proofreading, reading, writing and vocabulary.

I base my original methods on years in the classroom and tutoring, but I also have a couple of Master's, an MBA and a Ph.D. so you are in expert hands.

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.

Business

I earned an MBA in 1985. Since then I have spent 7 years as an exec in a couple of large corporations (Veritas Software and NetworkOmni Communications). In the past 3 years I have directed 2 international business schools in Europe where I also taught classes in my areas of expertise: Management, International Strategy and Business Ethics.

ESL/ESOL

I earned a master's in English 20 years ago and since then I have been tutoring students of all ages in the US and Puerto Rico. For the past 3 years, I directed international schools in Europe and created English courses (ESL/ESOL) for students from over 50 nationalities. I have personally learned 3 foreign languages and written a book on Grammar. This gave me the opportunity to develop a number of tricks and exercises that facilitate memorization. I approach teaching in a very practical, hands-on and natural way, yet I provided solid structural basis for people to understand the mechanics and not have to solely rely on memory.

French

I am a French native living in the US for 25 years. I have been teaching and tutoring people of all ages and backgrounds since then. I have a Ph.D, published a book, and know how to tailor lessons precisely to your needs and way of learning. Whether you want academic quality, help for your child in school, or the simple pleasure of casual conversation alone or with a group of friends, I will be happy to share my experience and knowledge of the culture.

Literature

Professor of English and French literature since 1983, taught a SDSU, UCSD and Mesa College.

Public Speaking

I have been a professor in a wide variety of schools for years as well as an administrator and a corporate executive in the past 10 years. This has led me to give lectures to classes as well as presentations to large audiences. In business I have created countless oral reports for my teams and superiors and made numerous presentations to clients, partners and vendors. Recently, while directing an international business school I worked with my MBA students on their capstone presentation skills.
