About Anne-Margret

I have taught French in a variety of settings, including after-school programs, high school, adult ed & college. I have taught ESL at all levels from elementary school to adult education, also in a variety of settings (formal classes, groups & one-on-one tutoring). I particularly enjoy working with Hispanic students as I speak Spanish fluently & use a unique inter-language method very powerful for vocabulary acquisition both in French and English to speed up learning. I am fun, enthusiastic & very patient. I hold a TESOL certificate from CalState Fullerton, have completed all the coursework for a Linguistics MA. I am a native French speaker, but was raised bilingually. I have worked as a professional freelance writer for several years.

I am looking for individuals of all levels & ages wishing to learn or improve their French, including at the AP level. In English, I am interested in teaching anyone wishing to improve their vocabulary & grammar in particular, whether for personal, academic, or professional growth or need.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked in ESL with elementary K-6 students for several years & have also been a substitute teacher for Santa Ana USD in this area. I particularly enjoy teaching all aspects of English reading & writing improvement, but am not qualified to teach math. I especially enjoy working with Hispanic students to help them make use of their Spanish vocabulary to understand difficult words in English.

English

I hold a BA in Linguistics & have completed all the coursework for a MA in Linguistics also, as well as have a TESOL certificate & a Speech & Communication minor. I have taught ESL & remedial English in a number of settings for many years. I also worked as a freelance writer with over 250 pieces published, including at the national level. My strengths are grammar & a very large vocabulary. I particularly enjoy working with Hispanic students as I speak Spanish fluently.

I hold a TESOL certificate (equivalent to MA) & have taught ESL classes to children as well as adults & in private tutoring. My strengths are grammar & vocabulary development.

Having been raised in France & being fully bilingual also gives me a large foreign vocabulary.
