I have always enjoyed working one-on-one with students. I taught French for 15 years to students of all levels. Throughout that time I spent many hours working outside of class with individual students and tutored during the summer. I particularly enjoy helping beginning and intermediate (French 1 & French 2) students build a solid foundation in their understanding of the language while acquiring substantial vocabulary and confidence in their general speaking skills. Believe it or not, I like grammar and I love to teach it! I won't force it on you, but if it's got you stumped, I'd love to help you make some sense out of it. I also enjoy teaching pronunciation. Once you know a few rules, it's not that hard.
There are many fun & interesting aspects of French and it is a real pleasure for me to see my students progress. I try as quickly as possible to identify the problem areas, help my students overcome them and also suggest helpful study skills. The ultimate goal is that they become confident learners who see and are pleased with their own progress. I am very patient.
After earning my Masters in French from Middlebury College's French School in Paris, I returned to France several times for various summer courses, teacher workshops, and homestays. I've also traveled to Montreal for a summer tutorial and homestay and participated in a summer institute studying other French-speaking regions of the world.
I hope to meet you soon!
I have a Master's in French from Middlebury College, renown for its language schools, and 15 years of experience teaching French to middle and high school students. In addition to my classroom teaching I spent many hours working with individual students and tutored during the summer.
While studying for my Master's I lived in Paris. I've also lived with families in Normandy, Lorraine, and Montreal while taking various summer courses and teacher workshops.

Pamela tailored each lesson based on my daughter's strengths and weaknesses and took time preparing lessons that revolved around my daughter's world to make it more relatable. I was very please with the progress over the year. Pamela was also very timely, wh ...
