I am a fully qualified and experienced language instructor in French and ESL with twenty years' experience. I hold a Master of Education, the DELTA (Diploma of English Language Teaching to Adults - Cambridge University Board) and CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults - Cambridge University Board). I am bilingual - French, English as I have lived a good part of my life in France and Tunisia. I have taught French and ESL to students of all ages, from Kindergarten to adults over 60, in schools and in companies. I have first-hand experience with the American school system as well as the British and French school systems. I have lived and worked in different countries and am therefore used to cultural and language differences, their positive and enriching attributes and the difficulties they can cause. The quality of my teaching is superior. I tailor my lessons specifically to each student's individual needs and use the appropriate teaching approach(es) to do this. Such approaches can include but are not limited to communicative, lexical, direct, audio lingual, grammar translation and/or kinesthetic methods. I achieve desired results in a short period of time, which explains the rate of my lessons. BMW, Colas and Continental Automotive are some of the companies whose employees I have taught.

ACT English

I have prepared many students for the ACT exam as part of American college entrance requirements, including my own daughter who passed very well.

Art History

I hold a Bachelor of Arts Honors Degree in Art History from the renowned Sainsbury Center Art History department of the University of East Anglia in Norwich, United Kingdom.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in the state of New Jersey in Elementary education. I have a lot of experience teaching young children inside and outside of school. As part of my Master's in education from the College of New Jersey in Princeton, NJ, I took courses in classroom management, different teaching methodology and differentiated instruction according to the student's learning style (auditory, kinesthetic, visual) and needs.

English

I hold a Master's in ESL from the College of New Jersey, a certificate in ESL from the same college, the internationally recognized CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults - Cambridge University Board) and the DELTA (Diploma of English Language Teaching to Adults - Cambridge University Board). I have over twenty years experience in the field and have taught in several countries including France, Spain, Indonesia and Tunisia. As an ESL teacher, opportunities to prepare international students for the TOEFL have often arisen and I have successfully prepared the candidates. I have also been a TOEFL administrator for the exam.

ESL/ESOL

I hold a Masters in ESL from the College of New Jersey, a certificate in ESL from the same college, the internationally recognized CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults - Cambridge University Board) and the DELTA (Diploma of English Language Teaching to Adults - Cambridge University Board). I have over twenty years experience in the field and have taught in several countries including France, Spain, Indonesia and Tunisia.

French

I am entirely bilingual - French/English. I went to university in Paris at the renowned Sorbonne, Paris IV. I have passed the ETS Praxis World Language French exam to be certified to teach French in the United States. I currently teach French at CCES (Middle School and to Americans working for French companies in the area.

Reading

As a successful English teacher with a Masters in education and over 20 years' teaching experience, I am more than qualified to teach reading at all grade levels and also at university level.

SAT Reading

I have a Master's in education and I have had all my education in English. I am an avid reader and writer, and I have successfully helped students pass their SATs, ACTs and PSATs.

SAT Writing

Like the ACT, the SATs are required for American college entrance and my Masters in ESL and twenty years' teaching experience has enabled me to successfully prepare candidates for this exam.

TOEFL

I hold a Masters in ESL from the College of New Jersey, a certificate in ESL from the same college, the internationally recognized CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults - Cambridge University Board) and the DELTA (Diploma of English Language Teaching to Adults - Cambridge University Board). I have over twenty years experience in the field and have taught in several countries including France, Spain, Indonesia and Tunisia.

I have also been a TOEFL administrator for the exam.

Writing

Teaching writing skills is an essential part of my educational and professional background as an English and French teacher. Due to demand, I am very specialized in academic writing as well as writing for business from e-mails to annual reports. In this era of technology, writing has become quite a complex skill and it is very important to recognize and know different writing styles and what type of written communication they belong to. I find writing very interesting to teach because it has so many variations that need to be understood and used.
