My 8 year old son loves his lessons with Kara. He has been taking instruction for a full year now. She is highly recommended and I can't say enough good things about her!
In preparation for our trip to France this summer (2013) I engaged Kara as my tutor for 60-90 minute lessons approximately once each month for the past 9 months. I had 4 years of French combined with HS and college and maintained a beginner's fluency over the years. Her tutoring was excellent, focused on my objectives: to improve my pronunciation, verb tense, sentence structure as well as idiomatic expressions. I would recommend her to others who want to also learn the cultural aspects and graces that one should be aware of to be able to both understand and enjoy your time in France.
Kara is a great French tutor who brings not only her ability to speak French fluently to her students, but the ability to teach. She is flexible in arranging tutoring sessions, always on time, and shows great patience with new French speakers. Kara works very hard to make sure that pronunciation of key French words and phrases is accurate and understandable. Kara has lived for extended periods of time in Belgium and France and brings a wealth of knowledge in regards to French culture to the tutoring sessions. So not only do you learn French the language, but also France the culture! We look forward to working with Kara again in the future.
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.
I have an MA in French with extensive experience teaching all age groups with different language goals. I attended parts of High school in Belgium and spent a couple of years working and studying in France.
I have experience teaching high school and college french courses in addition to community french programs for adults and children. I will tailor my approach depending on the goals of the learner.
