About Anne

I am a French native and a credentialed French teacher. I was born and raised in France and attended the Sorbonne University in Paris before moving to the Bay Area. I have been teaching at all levels of high school, community college, as well as after-school programs for the past eight years in the East Bay. I am in close contact with a lot of French teachers in the area and we routinely share our experiences with our students.

Teaching is a passion of mine. I enjoy helping my students in achieving the good grades that deserve, knowing that learning a foreign language is sometimes a challenge. However, with patience and dedication, success is never really out of reach.

As a tutor, my goal for each lesson is for the student to have understood the material at stake. Although the speaking skills are very important, a tutoring session does mainly involve writing and grammar in general. I keep a close communication with the student's teacher to make sure that the material closely follows the curriculum.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed, and I will make sure that your needs are satisfied. I am fairly flexible with time, but I do require a 24 hour cancellation notice, with a possibility of make-up.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Spelling

I think that reading helps a lot in learning how to spell. There are ways to help improve spelling skills as well; i.e., identifying prefixes and suffixes.

TOEFL

I believe that I can help a student passing the TOEFL exam for two reasons. One is that, being a foreigner myself and having experienced the challenges of this language, I am able to direct and support the student in a most efficient way. I am very familiar with English grammar and can provide the necessary support in listening and communicating as well.

Vocabulary

I believe that I can help a student with English vocabulary because I speak with fairly sophisticated words in my regular speech. I read a lot as well, and I constantly learn new words through this medium. I believe that I can help a student improve his vocabulary by encouraging him in using synonyms, homonyms, and antonyms.
