I am a French native speaker with 19 years of experience teaching French as a foreign language and as a second or third language.
I teach students of all ages, from preschoolers to adults, as well as all levels from novice to fluent.
I have been teaching students in school settings (elementary, middle and high schools) and also teaching students who are schooled or homeschooled in addition to adult students from private businesses.
As a French native speaker, I will teach you the correct French pronunciation, understood in all francophone countries, as well as the cultural aspects of learning the language, in addition to speaking, writing, reading, and understanding along with grammar skills.
I will tailor the lessons to your needs whether you want to learn the language for pleasure, business or any other reasons. I am a French native speaker with 19 years of experience teaching French as a foreign language and as a second or third language.
Special rates for groups of 2 or more students of the same age category and level.
Catherine is a native speaker from Paris so she is very knowledgeable and is very good at conveying the difficult nuances of French to me. We often have dicussions about Parisian life as well which is so helpful since I would like to live there.
My lessons were tailored for exactly what I wanted. I was given innovative suggestions how to practice what we learned between lessons. Never felt rushed, though the hour seemed to go by so quickly! Punctual, kind, patient, and very knowledgeable.
Madame Catherine, has been tutoring my son in French for the last 2 months. She is a very patient teacher with excellent skills in connecting with the student.
My son had very little exposure to French before he started. She has tailored the lessons to ensure that he is comfortable with the basic concepts before advancing to newer things. She enforces discipline and language structure which is very important when learning a new language.
She provides regular homework and things he can practice before the next lesson.
She is a great teacher and I would highly recommend her as a tutor.
Catherine is always on time - positive and friendly attitude - relates really well with my grand daughter - is encouraging -- and brings with her a positive learning atmosphere-- couldn't ask for more!
I am taking French because I am serious about learning the language, not just learning enough to have a few phrases to use on vacation.
I am language challenged, so teaching me is not the easiest job! Catherine is extremely patient, never passes judgment on how fast or slow I'm learning, and is flexible to tailor a lesson at the pace of my comprehension.
As most know, French has many rules, and sometimes the rules are not consistent, making the language complex (at least for me!). Catherine is effective at making the complex simple.
I would HIGHLY recommend Catherine as a French tutor!
Our son is fluent in French (he was in school in Paris for the past 2 years) and living in the US, we want his french to keep improving. Catherine adapts very well to our needs and always brings good materials with her. She is always on time and is great to work with. We also love that she is a native Frenchwoman from Paris.
We were looking for a French teacher that could teach our ten year old conversational French. We weren't interested in conjugating verbs or even reading French at this stage. Madam Catherine C. is able to keep our son engaged in learning a second language through games and casual conversation as well as formal lessons.
She rarely speaks English during her visits here. I enjoy listening to my son and Madam Catherine C. chattering in French and then laughing at something amusing that they both shared in another language. Madam Catherine C. was born in Paris and she shares the love of her native language as well as French history. She even spent one lesson teaching my son in French how to make real crepes! She is an outstanding, extraordinary teacher.
Madame Conant is a first rate French tutor. Her lesson plans are always well thought out and clear. In addition, Madame C is excellent in her ability to evaluate my daughter's specific needs and to tailor instruction in a very accessible and fun way. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, my family really enjoy Madame C's weekly visits. She is a delightful person and a complete pleasure to have at our house. Merci beau coup, Madame!
Madame C. is an excellent tutor and provides instruction in perfect Parisian French. I look forward to my lessons each week and I am pleased to be making steady progress. Madame Catherine is very pleasant and assists with all aspects of the French language. She also provides helpful information and insight regarding subtle nuances of the French language and culture. Her lessons provide a wonderful motivation to continue with my French studies. I would definitely recommend Madame Catherine to anyone interested in improving their French language skills.
As a complete novice in French, I had no familiarity with the language besides a few token words such as "bonjour" and "au revoir." Based on the few lessons I have had with this teacher, I feel I have a better understanding of basic French including pronunciations, verb conjugations, and vocabulary. I also feel that I am getting better insight into speaking correct French since this teacher is a native speaker originally from France. Merci et bonne chance!
Madame Catherine is an exceptional teacher, very patient and knowledgeable. She is very easy to talk to, has flexible hours, and is always in a great mood. My husband and I look forward to our french classes, and can clearly see we are making progress.
I really appreciate the fact that she is a native french speaker, and that she understands the difficulties of learning a second (or third, fourth) language.
We would definitely recommend her to anyone thinking about learning french.
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.
My first experience teaching French as a foreign language was when I still lived in France as a teenager. I really enjoyed doing it and decided to continue on that path when I moved to the USA.
I have taught French to anglophones as well as people from other areas including Asian countries (Character based languages). I also have experience teaching students from francophone countries who live in the USA.
My strength is not only in teaching French vocabulary and grammar but also in teaching the culture associated with it.
