About Ingrid


Bio

First of all, let me put you at ease about any concern regarding my accent. I do NOT have a French accent when I speak English or any other of the languages I tutor. Most people ask me if I am from New England.

I was raised in an international environment, and I began showing a gift for learning foreign languages at age seven.
At age 19, I started tutoring ESL in Brussels, Belgium.

I have taught ESL, French, and Portuguese in California for more than 25 years, both privately and in the...

First of all, let me put you at ease about any concern regarding my accent. I do NOT have a French accent when I speak English or any other of the languages I tutor. Most people ask me if I am from New England.

I was raised in an international environment, and I began showing a gift for learning foreign languages at age seven.
At age 19, I started tutoring ESL in Brussels, Belgium.

I have taught ESL, French, and Portuguese in California for more than 25 years, both privately and in the classroom, to children and adults, at all levels. In recent years, I have been tutoring Spanish as well.

I hold a BA in music with a minor in pedagogy, and have studied linguistics applied to teaching foreign languages to adults.
I also hold the CELTA certificate (ESL teaching).

I love tutoring, and also enjoy giving group classes to children and adults. I can help you with pronunciation, accent reduction, grammar, general conversational skills, business French or other language listed, remedial French or other language listed, and test preparation.

General Music

I have a B.A. in musicology. I have taught K through 5 music appreciation and recorder. I have included classical music appreciation and chanson in my language classes for adults, in fact once had the responsibility of leading a language class solely through French chanson. I have presented a radio program on Mozart in my late twenties. This weekly program was geared toward an adult audience, and I was responsible for its content. My program producer was going over my notes before airing, and never once had to correct any content. I have had a specialty in Brazilian music for the last 14 years.
