I am an avid francophile and spent three years in Paris studying French at La Sorbonne, Nanterre and Science Politique. I have an MA from the French Graduate School at Middlebury College and completed my thesis in Paris. THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE SCHOOL, RECOGNIZED FOR LANGUAGES, PARTICULARLY IN FRENCH.

My major was in French, learning language, civilization, literature with a well-rounded curriculum in political science, economics, linguistics and art history as well.

I love to teach French to students who might be challenged by certain aspects of the language and also appreciate motivated students who want to really learn the language.

My style is open, participative and focused on the phonetics, pronounciation, grammar and skill sets needed to become fluent. I try to gear the subject matter toward the interest level of the student and find ways to make learning fun and memorable.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

Aside from being a French/English Tutor, I am an Executive Recruiter and have 15 years experience in Executive Recruiting for senior level executives to include coaching candidates on their profiles, resumes and brand positioning. I have worked for top-tier search organizations, such as Heidrick & Struggles and Korn/Ferry International and am interested in working with students on their career development.

My hourly rate is $90 for Career Development.

English

I was trained to teach English as a second language to foreigners when I studied abroad in France.

As a native English speaker and a linguist in multiple languages, I am able to recognize and teach the nuances and ambiguities of a language. I have taught English to expats in NYC.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
