As a former School Teacher in a French Lycée for 15 years and and a tutor for many years. I also have passed the French Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure. I have helped people at different levels with their French. Whether it be with Grammar, Writing, Spelling or Conversation, I will guide them through the intricacies of that beautiful but not so easy language. I am happy teaching French and even happier when observing my students' progress.

To better assist students, I use a number of integrated approaches according to their particular needs. My techniques involve a mix of textbooks, audio and multimedia material. A student's personal situation dictates which approach is the best for him or her. The emphasis can be on listening, pronunciation, conversation, grammar, writing or a combination of all the aspects of Language Learning.

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

Drawing

I have been painting and drawing for more than twenty years and can help students with their work.

My Art School training started with substantial drawing classes covering Basic Perspective Drawing and also specific subjects such as still life, landscape, portrait and figure drawing.

I will teach students Basic Perspective Drawing as well as specific subjects such as still life, landscape, portrait and figure drawing. Various pencil, charcoal and ink techniques will be introduced, too. Students will be tutored according to their specific needs.

I have taught at the Elementary School level for fifteen years, being responsible for Grammar, Writing, Oral Expression, Reading, French, Math, Science, History, Geography and Art.

Working with children is wonderful. My students and I just enjoy the experience. I am happy to have the opportunity to help young people overcome their academic challenges.

Elementary Math

I have taught Math for fifteen years at the elementary level and have taken several Math courses in College including Calculus 1 and 2. My training also included Elementary Math teaching. I effectively help students with their difficulties in Elementary Math from K through 6, in problem solving and Math concepts.
