After graduating from college I spent one year studying French at the University of Strasbourg, France. Afterwards, I worked at the Council of Europe, an organization dedicated to improving social issues in Europe. It is also located in Strasbourg, and I worked there for three and a half years. I had a wonderful experience working and living in France, and have visited many times as a tourist since then.

I would like to help you develop and expand your level of French so that you too may pursue your goal of mastering the French language. I offer instruction adapted to your level and objectives. I tailor techniques to correct pronunciation and intonation, improve conversational fluency and improve grammar and spelling. I focus on developing confidence in listening, speaking and reading skills. I am a dedicated and supportive teacher who enjoys helping and motivating my students to achieve their goals.

College Counseling

I graduated from American University in 1982 with a degree in Economics and International Studies. I also studied at the University of Stasbourg, France for one year. I will be completing a B.A. in French from the University of Las Vegas in French in December. I have been tutoring students in French with Wyzant Tutoring for the past three years.

I have advised students about course curriculums at various universities and community colleges here in Las Vegas, as well as other universities. Besides helping my students gain a better mastery of the French language, I have worked with teenagers and adults who wish to continue their education, and further their career objectives.

Having attended different colleges and universities to continue my life long pursuit of knowledge, I have gained much knowledge about many fields of studies and opportunities for students to pursue in college. I feel very competent to counsel students about college.
