Bonjour, my name is Sarah M. I am 25 years old and recently graduated from Beloit College. I received a Bachelor's degree in French, and have spent two terms overseas in France and Senegal. From January- May 2006, I studied for four months at the university in Rennes, France. From January- May 2007, I studied in Dakar, Senegal. I worked and lived in France, on a 7 month contract, as an English language teaching assistant in two French primary schools to nearly 100 children aged 7-11 years old. I would like to share my love of French with you. So, if you are looking to improve your knowledge of French language and culture, do not hesitate to contact me! In addition to overseas work and study experience, I have worked as a tutor on my college's campus for various levels of French ranging from beginner through introductory literature courses. I have also served as a teaching assistant for the introductory level French course on my home campus. Also, I have been working with adults, usually around the intermediate level, on English as a Second Language work.

I usually work with materials and books students have; however, I also occasionally use some of my own materials.

Looking forward,

Sarah

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught EFL to elementary age children in France. I have earned certification from the Tennessee Foreign Language Institute to teach ESL. I am also volunteer teaching adult learners of English as a Second Language.

French

I was a French major in college. I have lived, studied, and worked in France and francophone Senegal. Currently, I am preparing to enter a Master's of French program in the fall. I enjoy tutoring students very much.

Sarah’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Sarah. View all of Sarah’s resources

I hope this does not sound too traditional, but I find that the old-fashioned technique of giving students sentences to translate from English into French targeting a specific grammar concept (like relative pronouns qui and que) usually works wonders for instilling a concept in their minds. The hand/writing/mind connection is great for learning a foreign language. Besides, all French students... read more
