Why French Tutor? As a native speaker I really enjoy teaching French. I can help you with conversation, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, tests and exams or business trips. To explain the French culture and its idiosyncrasies is a lot of fun. For years I worked as a French instructor in a world famous language teaching company. Later I gave French lessons to students and business people.

My classes revolve around your needs and objectives. They are structured and interactive to improve your vocabulary and grammar. They are informal, dynamic and fun to expand your French language skills. I can provide references upon requests

Why Economics Tutor? Economics is my passion. As an adjunct professor in a university of the Silicon Valley, I believe every student should study this subject. The understanding of basic principles of economics makes us better decision makers and more informed citizens. I bring enthusiasm and knowledge to my classes. I can tutor at high school or college level.

Pleasant, Reliable, and Effective — I'm really grateful for Ghislaine L.'s tutoring services. She has come through for me on many occasions, whether it was last minute prep for a test or just learning grammar, conjugations, and vocabulary. I always was prepared for tests with her help.
