Bonjour! My name is Laura and I can help you to learn or improve upon your French! I have been immersed in French language and culture for over half of my life and have studied in France. I hold a BA and MA in French, and have taught in both private and public schools as well as a university setting. Currently I am looking to increase my private tutoring client base. I am married to a Frenchman and our family travels to France frequently to visit. I also have studied Spanish for many years and have tutored in Spanish at the beginner's level. French is my passion, but I love spoken language as a whole. My wish is to help those of you who are, for whatever reason, interested in exploring the beauty and complexities that the French language promises to all.

Excellent Tutor — My two sessions with Laura have been fantastic. She is easy to work with and very knowledgeable. I intend to work with her two-three times per week during this summer to get back up to speed with my French and I am really looking forward to it. Thank you Laura! ...
