Bonjour! I would love the opportunity to work with you in French. I hold an MA in French, have studied in France, and have been to French-speaking countries 8 times in the past 16 years.

I taught high school French for 10 years, have taught all levels of high school, and am currently adjunct faculty at a local university. My principal honored me with his 'Shining Star' award in 2006, and in 2008 I was chosen as the distinguished alumna for the foreign languages department at the University of North Texas, where I received my Master's.

I have been a tutor for the past 5 years and have worked with both middle and high school students. I believe that a tutoring session should helpful and fun. I have a variety of learning games and activities that I use in my sessions so that all learning styles can be met. Let me help you learn French!

I am so happy to work with both of the children and think it is wonderful that you are exposing them to a new language at such a young age -- that is a special gift and they will carry that skill with them for the rest of their lives. Merci beaucoup for your very kind words and I am so happy you chose me to work with these 2 delightful children!

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.

French

J'adore le français! Ever since I was little, I wanted to learn French. I took 4 years in high-school, majored in French in college, and I have an MA in French (4.0 GPA) as well.
I taught high-school French for 10 years, and have taught all levels, including AP. I am currently teaching French at Colorado School of Mines, where I brought back the French program after a 15-year hiatus. I love teaching and working with students.
I have tutored French for over 6 years, and have worked with elementary school students through adult learners. I incorporate a variety of learning strategies into my sessions and I like to make my sessions fun. I have a vast library of resources and can work with you on any or all of the 4 skills (listening, reading, writing, speaking) and grammar as well. Learning games & partner activities are part of almost every session I give.
I have traveled to France 8 times since 1996, and have also been to Belgium, Switzerland, and Monaco. I am regularly complimented on my accent while in France. If you are looking to travel to France, I would love to help you plan your trip!
I truly enjoy working with all types of students and hope I can work with you as well!

Grammar

I love grammar! I have always been a strong grammar student, and my French classes re-inforced my English grammar knowledge. Gerunds, adverbs, prepositional phrases, direct objects, present participles, and more are no problem!

Study Skills

I have worked with many of my students to help with their organization and study skills. I have taught them how to use an assignment sheet and/or homework planner. I have also worked with students on how and what to highlight with a highlighter.

When dealing with reading passages or listening passages followed by questions, we have talked about how it is easier to focus on the passage when one reads the questions first.

I am a big fan of flashcards, as they are portable and allow students to work on material when they have a few minutes to spare. Plus, when they make the flashcards, they are learning as well.

Finally, I have told students that the best way to study is to do some review/study time each night, rather than try to cram before the test. By reviewing every night, the material can move from short-term to long-term memory and it will 'stick' better in the student's head.
