About Carrie

Salut ! I've been teaching middle school and high school French for over ten years at public and private schools. I have also tutored children, teens and adults with various learning goals and levels of language. I lived in France for 2 years and taught English to French high school students at Lycée Bertrand d'Argentré. French language and culture are my absolute passion! I spend significant time in France every summer to stay connected with the ever-changing language and culture, and I love to share my discoveries with my students.
In terms of my teaching style, I tend to use games, songs and other memory tricks to make learning more natural and enduring. I emphasize speaking skills since those are often the most difficult to acquire but the most useful in life, however, I'm happy to tailor your experience to your needs. Since I have taught every level of French (from 1-5, both Honors and non-Honors of each level as well as AP French) I am familiar with school curriculum and desired outcomes.
I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm and passion for French with you!
