About Milka

* MASTER OF ARTS IN TEACHING FRENCH / 10+ YEARS OF EXPERIENCE / FRENCH NATIVE SPEAKER:
I was born and grew up in France, in the suburbs of Paris. I have been teaching French to hundreds of students of all ages (pre-K, elementary, high school, college and adult professionals), origins, backgrounds, and language levels. I can work in full-immersion or French conversation mode, and can provide homework help for all French levels (French 1, French 2, French 3, French 4, and AP French). I have helped many students who were struggling raise their grade to an A in a couple of months.

* MASTER OF ARTS IN ENGLISH / 8+ YEARS OF EXPERIENCE:
As a professional writer and translator, I know how important excellent written and oral communications skills are. I know what it takes to learn English as a second language and I'll do my best to help you master this great language.

* ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TUTOR
I have several years of experience working and volunteering in elementary schools, offering individual help for students struggling with phonics, reading, writing, composition and math. I have a lot of experience as a volunteer in kindergarten, first, second and third grade classrooms, and I understand what it takes to teach a child to read and write. I also know that every child doesn't learn the same way and I adjust my teaching style to meet your child's needs.

* CA TEACHING PERMIT (K-8)
I have a teaching permit in California.
