Bio

I’ve led an interesting life. After graduating from a small college in upstate New York, I got my Master’s Degree in French from the Sorbonne in Paris, after which I stayed another year and taught English as a Foreign Language. Returning to the States, I soon went to San Antonio, TX, where, once again, I taught English, this time to foreign military personnel.

I’ve led an interesting life. After graduating from a small college in upstate New York, I got my Master’s Degree in French from the Sorbonne in Paris, after which I stayed another year and taught English as a Foreign Language. Returning to the States, I soon went to San Antonio, TX, where, once again, I taught English, this time to foreign military personnel. This government job eventually took me to Cairo, Egypt to teach English. I lived in Cairo for many years after that initial assignment.

Since returning to the States once again, and living in Florida, I have continued to teach English as a Second Language as well as tutor foreign students for the IELTS, TOEFL and TOEIC. I have also tutored both foreign and American students in preparation for the GED, SAT, ACT and GMAT (verbal sections of each). In addition, I teach and tutor French. I speak basic Arabic and some Spanish as well, so if you need explanations in any of these languages, I’m ready to help!

Many years of experience both abroad and in the U.S. have given me insight into how a student’s mind works and what he or she need to succeed. For both ESL and Test Prep, I individualize lessons and target those areas where the student is weak. As to qualifications, in addition to an M.A., I hold permanent teaching certification in New York State as well as an Advanced Certificate from the American TESOL Institute. In addition, I have successfully taught Test Prep (SAT, ACT, GED, GMAT and TOEFL) through various language institutes, Learning Centers and Tutoring companies.

Along with an M.A. in French, and having lived in Paris for three years, I hold permanent teaching certification (French, grades 7-12) in New York State. I prefer teaching and tutoring on a one-to-one basis in order to maximize a student's understanding. Whether you are taking French in high school or are planning a trip to a French-speaking country, I'm your best resource for success.

Contact me to find out how I can help you succeed in English as a Second Language, French or on that tough exam that looms over you! My hours are flexible, so I'm sure I can fit into YOUR schedule!

Some college-bound foreign students choose to take the IELTS rather the TOEFL. The skills and strategies needed for the IELTS are basically the same as for TOEFL, but the IELTS is more difficult in certain respects. I researched and familiarized myself with the differences, downloaded voluminous material and have successfully taught several classes. I hold permanent teaching certification in New York State as well as an Advanced Certificate from the American TESOL Institute.
