About Kathleen

I am a certified teacher of French and Spanish with extensive experience at the elementary, middle and high school levels in both public and private schools. As a tutor, I seek to work with individual students who wish to begin or to further their study of a foreign language. My wealth of experience and knowledge of the most effective instructional practices assist me in coming up with varied strategies to engage and challenge students at multiple levels of learning: from younger learners with their natural facility for language and their enjoyment of activities such as reciting, singing, role-playing and hands-on exploration to more mature students seeking instruction in the skills of listening, reading, writing, and conversation. My style, whether in front of a class or sitting with an individual student, is lively and energetic. I love language and get immense satisfaction in watching my students grow in knowledge and skill. I am a certified teacher of French and Spanish with extensive experience at the elementary, middle and high school levels in both public and private schools.

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.
