About Sabine

I earned my Baccalauréat in France with a focus on French literature, philosophy, and the arts. I then received my BFA and MFA from US schools in the fields of art history, photography, film, and writing. I have always loved writing in both French and English. I am perfectly bilingual in these two languages—conversational and written—and travel regularly between France and the US.
I have tutored French to students of all ages, levels, and enthusiasm. I'm excellent at grammar, spelling, vocabulary in both French and English, and have helped many high school students improve their grades. I also enjoy teaching French to adult students who passionate the language and culture, and to professionals who need to learn or improve their French for business reasons.

In parallel, I have developed a translation portfolio (especially French to English), which includes website content, articles, interview transcriptions, and film subtitles. I am especially fond of working on creative translations and/or writing projects, which involve an intimate knowledge of both French and American cultures and languages.

I am a native French speaker, originally from Provence. I grew up in a bilingual home with a French father and an American mother. Although I learned English in the US at an early age, I had to relearn it in French middle school and high school. Extensive training in languages (French, English, German and some Italian) has given me an insight into the language learning process, which I apply with my students. As an instructor, I meet my students where they are. I am immensely patient as well as passionate about helping my students to learn, to improve, and to appreciate the French language.

In addition to being a French native, I am also a professional writer (English) and translator (French to English). I have written grant proposals, essays, fiction and nonfiction stories, press releases, scripts, tv pilots and web content. I have helped students in Education (USC) and Psychology (Antioch, Pacifica) to write research papers and theses.

Whether you are a Francophile or a student looking to improve his/her high school or college grades, I will meet you where you're at. I am a creative and fun tutor with a background in writing, languages, and the arts. I want my students to enjoy our sessions and in fact, the more eager you are to learn, the more I will give you. Wherever you want to go in your learning process, I am committed to helping you get there.
