My name is Marie-Claire. I have sixteen years experience as a French teacher in New Zealand. I was raised and educated in France and left in my twenties for New Zealand where I became a certified teacher. I recently moved to the States and married a lovely American. I am ready to work! - now that I am the proud owner of a Green Card, Social Security number and work permit.

I taught French and English in New Zealand high schools as well as tutored many students of all ages after school. I enjoy the one-to-one approach because it allows me to get to know the students and tailor my lessons to their needs and preferences. I like to use a textbook but also teach from various sources - Internet, magazines, newsclips, games. I can make each lesson as formal or informal as necessary, although I prefer a less formal approach.

Tutoring is also a way for me to share my culture and love of languages. I miss speaking French here in America, and I enjoy the opportunity to keep in touch with my roots.

After so many years in English speaking countries, I consider myself bilingual. I actuallt taught English for a while and am currently working as a translator.

Looking forward to working with you,
