About Marion


Bio

I love learning foreign languages and I want to transmit that love to you! Oral language is unique to human beings. I think it's fascinating how languages have developed over time and the differences between them from the alphabets they use to the grammar they've developed and their vocabulary and expressions. I believe in using as much of the target language as possible when teaching. There's no sense me talking to you in English if I can say it/explain it in the language you want to learn...

I love learning foreign languages and I want to transmit that love to you! Oral language is unique to human beings. I think it's fascinating how languages have developed over time and the differences between them from the alphabets they use to the grammar they've developed and their vocabulary and expressions.

I believe in using as much of the target language as possible when teaching. There's no sense me talking to you in English if I can say it/explain it in the language you want to learn. That's not to say I won't speak English as necessary but don't underestimate yourself and your ability to learn a language without using a lot of English.

I also have an excellent background in grammar so for English-speaking individuals who need help with writing/composition, I can be a great resource.

I work best with students of junior high/middle school age and up through adult.

We will have fun together! I will use aural, visual and kinesthetic techniques while teaching/tutoring you so that we find out what combination of learning modalities best suit you.

I have a bachelor's degree in French Language and Institutions from UC Berkeley and a master's degree in Linguistics. During my undergraduate career, I spent my junior year in Paris, my dream come true! I also have a secondary teaching credential in French. I subsequently spent another summer in Caen in Normandy in an intensive French program for teachers. After I returned to the U.S., I taught French for 6 years in a college-prep high school, I've taught French for Berlitz in the U.S. and France, for Converse International School, Language Door, and I have substitute taught French at a community college. I speak French every day since my "significant other" is French.

I am a "grammar freak." Contrary to most other people, I find grammar to be very interesting and the differences in grammar between English and other languages to be fascinating. I can help you with your English or French grammar.

Proofreading

Given that I have a graduate degree in Linguistics and am a grammar and spelling fanatic, I am the perfect person to proofread your writing. I have helped many college students with scholarship essays and definitely enabled most of them to be awarded the scholarship they were applying for.

Great Tutor!!

Marion is great with my son who is a freshman in high school. He has been struggling and she really helped to get him catch up. She has a lot of patience and she makes it fun for him to learn french. I highly recommend her.

Kerry, 6 lessons with Marion

Exceptional!

Marion is marvelous! She's tailored out lessons to my specific needs, and is a fabulous teacher. Very kind and sincerely wants me to become a French speaking dynamo. I can't imagine a finer instructor and would without question recommend her for any level student!!!!

Jerry, 27 lessons with Marion

Excellent language tutor

I was falling behind and struggling with the material in my French 101 class so I went to Marion to see if she could help catch me up to speed. She knows the French language very well and helps break the material down in a way I am able to understand easily. I have noticed a big improvement in my French speaking capabilities and now I am doing much better in my class. If you are looking for a good language tutor I would definitely recommend Marion.

Ryan, 15 lessons with Marion

Excellent tutor! I highly recommend her.

Marion is a very good teacher. She is teaching my son to raise his French skill level at school. She helps in pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and spelling. Right after the first lesson I've seen improvement.
