English

Having worked in publishing, I can help strengthen your prose to make it more effective. As a teacher, I have worked with students of all ages teaching writing in both English and French.

ESL/ESOL

I first began tutoring English as a Second Language in the late 1970s as a high school volunteer and I taught Russian immigrants in Denver, Colorado. In the 1980s, I worked for Dialogos International, a company based in Raleigh, NC. There, I provided one-on-one tutoring primarily for business executives and their spouses. In 1990, I taught Russian immigrants English for the United Way in Birmingham, Alabama.

In 2004, I taught graduate students ESL at Rutgers University using the target language. The "immersion" approach, or using the target language, is a methodology that transfers smoothly from one language to another. After teaching ESL in high school in 2006 in Connecticut, I received certification with a 100-hour intensive course in ESL. Following this training, I taught ESL full-time at middle school in North Carolina. My students made tremendous progress in a semester's time by being given the opportunity to create their own individual research projects on subjects or aspects of subjects that most interested them. In public school, I advocated on behalf of the students for teaching modifications to help them in their other subjects and participated in the state-wide project to revamp all the record keeping in accordance with No Child Left Behind legislation. Since then, I have coached professors and students in English conversation, writing and public speaking.

French

I learned French as a child attending French public school in Aix-en-Provence. Later, I attended lycée in Monaco whilst living with a French family. Since that time, I developed my bilingual introduction to the language by reading, studying and returning to France regularly. I taught French literature for Rutgers University in Paris (summer 2000) and received my doctorate in Renaissance French literature (October 2000). Since that time, besides tutoring and translating, I have had extended stays in France with my family.

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.
