I am a fluent French speaker with over 25 years' teaching experience. I hold California teaching credentials in French and Multiple Subjects, and a master’s degree in education. I have lived and traveled widely in France and love sharing my passion for its language and culture.

Are you preparing for a trip to a French-speaking country and want some basic communication skills? Do you need help demystifying French grammar? Is wrapping your tongue around those “u”s and “euh”s giving you a hard time? Are you struggling to understand “les devoirs” that your teacher assigned? Whatever your goals, I look forward to helping you reach them.

As a fluent but non-native speaker, I understand the pitfalls of learning a language that does not always have a direct correspondence with English. After many years of working with high school and middle school students, as well as with adults, I have developed techniques that will help you master the language.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a California Multiple Subjects teaching credential, which allows me to teach any subject in grades K-8. I have had 15 years middle school experience teaching English language arts, social studies, French and Spanish.

ESL/ESOL

I hold a TEFL Certificate from the English Language Center in London and the California CLAD (Cross-Cultural, Language and Academic Development) Certificate. I have over 25 years teaching experience working with students from across the globe, and have organized and taught summer programs for students from Japan and France. In my teaching I emphasize the connection between culture and language. I will teach new English speakers to differentiate between informal spoken English and correct written English.
