Dear Student of French,

Nice to meet you on WyzAnt. Comment allez-vous? How are you?

As a tutor, I have worked with private and public school students from ages 8 to 70. With five years' teaching experience, including with Berlitz, and a master's in French Language and Culture, I can help you gain speaking confidence and become a competent user of the language to write, read, and speak.

We start with an assessment of what we can reasonably attain together. I have tutored beginners as well as more advanced learners, as well as those who are studying French as part of a doctoral program, and who need to work with vocabulary targeted for a certain field. Allez - Let's get on with it!

Thank you for your interest. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL at Berlitz Language Center.

French

I have most experience tailoring classes to those who need tutoring in advanced technical or diplomatic french. However, I have also worked with young students (as young as nine) and students who work in culinary fields. French is not hard but it takes consistent practice. I can teach you how to pronounce it and how to express what you need to say. With a little effort, you'll see results!

Excellent French tutor who goes above and beyond — I have found Ann to be a very personable, dependable, and patient French tutor. It's clear that she loves the language and wanted me to love it too! She always showed up prepared with a couple worksheets and recommended some excellent websites and books in addition to my textbook. When I told her I was a visual learner she wrote things down more often so that I could see the words as well as hear ...
