Hello! A French native, I have lived in the US for 20 years now and have been tutoring children and adults for about the same length of time.
As a French tutor, I have coached students that were learning the language for fun or preparing for exams like the TCF, AP French as well as business professionals interested in a particular field. I also currently work as a French coach for Rosetta Stone.
As a mom of four teenagers now, I have had the opportunity to be very familiar with the Montgomery County school curriculum while supervising years of homework but also working as a volunteer for ten years in their elementary schools. This included helping in the classroom, working with reading groups, and working individually with struggling students.
During that time, I also worked as a contract translator for the Montgomery County school system and translated middle school social studies curriculum books for the county French immersion program so that I am also very familiar with the social study content and objectives.
At last, I have certainly learned that every student is different and learns differently but most of all that constructive positive reinforcement works best. My tutoring will include a diagnostic to establish a clear communication and learning path for the student and material geared towards the student's strengths.
