About Catherine

I am a native French speaker. I studied French Literature and Linguistics in the very traditional, rigorous French educational system. As a tutor, though, I have used a wide variety of methods. I can use your syllabus and textbook(s) and ensure you master the material and/or bring in my own material, help you understand French the way it is actually spoken and express yourself in everyday situations and beyond. Together we can create a program to best suit your needs and be as flexible as conditions dictate.

There isn't a day I don't draw on some aspect of my knowledge of Latin, whether it's for spelling, word derivation or even cultural references to Roman history. I would love to support anyone wise enough to have selected this subject to study.

French

I'm a native speaker and I teach French at all levels and for all types of students: from the traveler who wants a quick primer for an upcoming trip (business or leisure) to the high-school student looking to improve a grade or score high on an AP or SAT test and levels in-between. I studied French Literature and Linguistics in the very traditional, rigorous French educational system.

Writing

I'm the product of a classical European education, which places a lot of emphasis on grammar and spelling. I've also being trained in journalism in this country and learned to use precise and efficient language. I have helped many high-school and college students develop their analytical skills and sharpen their writing whether on already assigned papers or through exercises I conduct.
