My name is Erica and I am a Masters student in French
at San Francisco State University. I earned my Bachelor's degree in French and Global Studies in May 2013 with honors from Sonoma State University. I tutor French and English
as a Second Language
, both of which I love!
For students interested in French tutoring:
I am extremely passionate about French! I studied the language for four years in high school and four years in college, and three years ago I studied abroad in Paris, France. There I attended a French university and took all of my classes in French with French students for one year. I love sharing my passion for the language and culture. I am now currently pursuing my Masters in French at San Francisco State.
At Sonoma State University, I taught groups of undergraduate students who were in lower division French classes, leading them in conversation classes I designed myself. I have taught French to students in high school and college and also to adults who are just wishing to learn the language for fun or to achieve personal goals.
For Students Interested in ESL
While I was living in Paris, France, I taught English to classes of both middle schoolers and high schoolers. I created all of my own lesson plans and led the classes by myself. I have worked with large groups of English language learners and also one on one with individuals. I have also taken classes specifically to learn how to teach ESL and have a TESOL certificate.
More recently, I taught English to refugees living in the Sacramento area. I have taught students from many different parts of the world and of all ages. Because I have been studying French for nine years, I understand what it is like to learn a foreign language
and can relate to problems you may be encountering.
If it sounds like I may be able to help you, please contact me! I am flexible with my tutoring methods and like to tailor my tutoring style to fit each student's needs. Whatever your goals may be, I will work with you to achieve them.
