French

J'adore le français! Ever since I was little, I wanted to learn French. I took 4 years in high-school, majored in French in college, and I have an MA in French (4.0 GPA) as well.
I taught high-school French for 10 years, and have taught all levels, including AP. I am currently teaching French at Colorado School of Mines, where I brought back the French program after a 15-year hiatus. I love teaching and working with students.
I have tutored French for over 6 years, and have worked with elementary school students through adult learners. I incorporate a variety of learning strategies into my sessions and I like to make my sessions fun. I have a vast library of resources and can work with you on any or all of the 4 skills (listening, reading, writing, speaking) and grammar as well. Learning games & partner activities are part of almost every session I give.
I have traveled to France 8 times since 1996, and have also been to Belgium, Switzerland, and Monaco. I am regularly complimented on my accent while in France. If you are looking to travel to France, I would love to help you plan your trip!
I truly enjoy working with all types of students and hope I can work with you as well!

Grammar

I love grammar! I have always been a strong grammar student, and my French classes re-inforced my English grammar knowledge. Gerunds, adverbs, prepositional phrases, direct objects, present participles, and more are no problem!

Study Skills

I have worked with many of my students to help with their organization and study skills. I have taught them how to use an assignment sheet and/or homework planner. I have also worked with students on how and what to highlight with a highlighter.

When dealing with reading passages or listening passages followed by questions, we have talked about how it is easier to focus on the passage when one reads the questions first.

I am a big fan of flashcards, as they are portable and allow students to work on material when they have a few minutes to spare. Plus, when they make the flashcards, they are learning as well.

Finally, I have told students that the best way to study is to do some review/study time each night, rather than try to cram before the test. By reviewing every night, the material can move from short-term to long-term memory and it will 'stick' better in the student's head.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
