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!

Amazing French Tutor!

Carrie is an excellent French teacher and has been teaching middle and high school French at independent schools in west LA. Prompt, patient, and fun! My daughter adored her and learned so much in one lesson!

Wonderful tutor

Carrie is helping us get ready for a family trip to France. She is a wonderful teacher. Our kids are young and don't yet study languages in school, but I hope she will be available to tutor them if they study French when they get to high school.

Nina, 5 lessons with Carrie

Excellent tutor

Carrie C is a wonderful tutor, so patient and has a calm way about her. My daughter is so much more confident in French because of the skills Carrie has given her. Carrie is reliable, trustworthy and knowledgeable in teaching high school French. I would highly recommend her!
