Currently, I'm an active French language and ESL tutor with several clients of various ages seeing positive results. Recently, I provided ESL tutoring services to a charter school in Newark, NJ for a multi-lingual student.
During my undergraduate studies, I trained with the School for International Training in Toulouse, France. I later obtained my Master of Arts degree in French from Middlebury College after an intensive, full immersion, year abroad in Paris, where I also took a certification course and exam in Business French at Novancia and classes at l'Université de Paris III (La Sorbonne Nouvelle).
While studying for my Masters, I acquired classroom experience in France, teaching English to French high-school students (equivalent of 1st year college in U.S.) on a political science track at the Lycée Paul Valery in Paris.
In the Philadelphia, I was facilitator of the Girl Scouts' Decisions for Life curriculum for middle school aged girls which led me to accept a permanent position at a charter school in Philadelphia and later a tutoring post in New York City.
While working in publishing, I founded a lunchtime French tutoring program and instructed editors at Essence Magazine. Most of my career has been focused in the creative field and I think this has given me some unique experiences from which to draw-- a plus when working with students. I am happily married to an educator of 11 years with experience in both New York and New Jersey as a teacher, administrator and instructional coach.
Very Patient and Excellent Tutor — April is an engaging and intuitive tutor who is able to assess one's language level quickly. She is always patient and encouraging, and we learned a lot in a very short time. Additionally, April is a lovely person with whom it is easy to spend several hours a week. I highly recommend April, both for her tutoring skills and her joie de vivre. Five stars! ...
