About George

I am a Graduate of the Yale University French Department with 2 Master's Degrees. I completed all courses to qualify for the Ph.D in French literature. I have lived, worked, and taught in multiple French-speaking countries (Switzerland, France, Cameroon). I retired from my career as financial planner to pursue my passion teaching French language, literature and philosophy to students. I also substitute teach French at San Dieguito Union High School and San Diego Unified School District.

I keep fluent in French by traveling to France and Europe once annually. I have close French friends who also visit me in San Diego. While in Europe I speak no English and carefully monitor and follow as many media sources as possible.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

I worked for 21 years as a self-employed financial advisor with Ameriprise, the nation's largest financial planning company. I operated and ran my own franchise as an independent contractor and helped over 250 clients save, invest, and plan their financial futures. I spent a great deal of time coaching clients and their families on the details of how various financial products and services work. I successfully sold my financial franchise to another advisor last year, thus completing the business cycle of creating, managing, and selling my own business.

French

I have an in-depth knowledge of French language, literature, and culture from both living abroad in several francophone countries as well as having majored in French in college and graduate school. I am retired now but have extensive experience as a substitute teacher in 2 different school districts as well as with private tutoring. I enjoy individual tutoring the most since with motivated students, significant progress can be made in short periods of time.

Spanish

I am a substitute teacher for San Diego Unified and San Dieguito Unified High Schools. I am fluent in Spanish.
