Hello and thank you for your inquiry!
I am a 39-year-old bilingual professional (French/English) who has just recently moved back to the Chester County area after 17 years of living and working in Europe. I was based in Paris, France.
During my stay, I worked for five different companies, and held various responsibilities. Among these were that of sales & business development consultant for corporate training methods in both language and management.
My previous background as an actor helped secure jobs as a coach for public speaking & presentations. I still act on the side for fun, and my latest project was a documentary on WWII, shot in various places in France.
I you are looking for a good "people person" with years of experience in tutoring and training, then please keep me in mind! You will be happy with your choice. My thousands of clients always were, and I have verbatim to prove it!
I look forward to earning your trust!

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.
While I was living in Paris, France I started teaching English as a second language. I did this job for over 5 years for 2 different companies. I also hold a TEFL certification from the American University of Paris.
I studied French with PSU in 1995-1996 where I maintained a 4.0 average for a year. I then moved to Paris, France where I resided for the following 17 years. I worked for several French companies where I honed my french skills to full fluency.
I have been a corporate trainer for over 13 years, and Public Speaking has been one of my specialty subjects since the beginning. I have helped thousands of professionals hone their presentation skills thanks to my initial experience as a stage actor which I transferred into another career as a corporate trainer. I have given hundreds of training sessions which clients have appreciated. They have expressed this appreciation through verbatim and evaluation, as well as praise to my employer(s).
I started stage acting in 1996. I have appeared in various productions ranging from Comedy to Tragedy in the United States and in France as a part of several theatre troops including La Sorbonne University. I have experience acting in both French and English, and am currently working on an English translation of Moliere's "Tartuff", for which I have finished the entire ACT 1.
