About Sarah

My tutoring experience is vast. I've helped students studying for the AP French exam as well as the SAT French subject test. With students who are having difficulty speaking the language, I provide the experience they need to feel comfortable. My passion for the French language is infectious and my enthusiasm creates an environment in which learning is fun and easy.

I'm completely fluent in French. I studied at Mount Holyoke College, La Sorbonne and Sciences Po. I spent my junior year abroad in Tours and Paris. I'm also a French-to-English translator.

I fell in love with French in ninth grade in high school. (Foreign language wasn't taught in schools back then until this grade.) During my first year of studies I arranged for a residential exchange with a French girl. I spent the summer in Montpellier and my correspondant then staying with me in the states. We've been friends since 1976 and visit and speak often. I converse with many French-speaking and colleagues, and possess a profound knowledge of the language and culture.

I have spoken French with my kids since they were born. Both kids speak and understand French fluently. I am a child care provider in the states and speak French to those under my care. They learn very quickly through games, music and conversation.

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.
