My passion with teaching French comes from living, studying and working in France for four years and also in Quebec. As a Rotary Scholar, I worked on my Masters' degree at the University of Lille, France. An Excellent Teacher award was presented to me by the University of Vermont Adult Education Program.
Students ages 5 to 75 have rated me a top instructor for my language, pronunciation and cultural knowledge, sense of humor and immersion techniques. IBM, GE and Bombardier are some companies who hired me to teach conversation to managers traveling abroad. They were thrilled with my ability to loosen them up in a "French" setting and relaxed atmosphere. Role playing and game activities--yes for adults too--gave them a deeper appreciation of their own abilities and sense of progress.
My lessons are tailored to the students' needs and at their pace although they are challenged too.
There is a 24-hour cancellation policy but we can do makeup classes. A quiet meeting place will be arranged, sometimes at a local library or a place of your choosing.
Would you like to know how the French view Americans and how they live, regions to visit and what they offer? Please contact me to find out and I assure you success with your French language skills.
