I am a foreign language teacher with a M.A. in French language, and B.A. in Spanish, and Education.

Through my studies and travels, notably in Paris (Institut Catholique de Paris), Rhône, Côte D’Azur, and Geneva, I have gained a broad perspective of French language and civilization.
I have also studied in Spain (Universidad Internacional de Menendez Pelayo, Santander).

My special interest is pragmatics; how to communicate in a meaningful and fruitful manner. (My Master’s thesis, entitled Question et Réponses dans Tintin, is based on pragmatic theory).

I tailor your lesson according to your interests and aspirations. I introduce and explain all the essential components of mastering the French language, including pronunciation, grammar and semantics. You will understand what you learn; this makes your learning process much easier than just mere memorizing. I also lead you to discover answers and theories for yourself… you will become a lifelong learner!

I teach children of all ages, high school and college students, and adults who need a foreign language for their profession and travels.

I am generally available for tutoring Monday through Friday from 9AM to 8PM.
My base rate is $45/hour for in-person lessons and $40/hour for online lessons.

I am excited about the possibility of being your tutor!

Bien amicalement

She brings a lot of experience to the table

Katri's lesson helped me with the musical phrasing because phrasing text and music must be parallel. I needed another pair of objective ears to give me confidence with the performance I am about to record. The tips about the open and closed vowels were very useful.
