About Heidi

Bonjour et bienvenue!

I am so excited you've decided to take up French as a second language. I have ten years of experience teaching French language and literature at University level, from beginner to advanced, including 20th Century French literature. I began teaching in France while I was completing my Master in Translation and upon returning to the USA I taught as an Adjunct Professor at various schools, such as Fordham University, Borough Manhattan Community College, and Miami Dade College. I have also tutored high school students in French levels 1-4 online, in both group and one-on-one settings. I have also taught adults looking to pick up a new language.

I specialize in French (language) of all levels, which includes French grammar, conversation, reading, writing, and accent reduction.

My students come from all over with very specific needs in terms of language learning. I have led language workshops to working professionals, tutored high school students in their French classes. I have helped students in test preparation for both written and oral exams and have taught adults who, either wish to begin learning French, or who took it in high school and wish to refresh and continue. Some wish to work on communication, while others prefer to work on their writing skills.

I am patient and understanding, realizing that learning a foreign language is no easy task. I can help students understand the aspects of the French language that they may find difficult, especially their areas of struggle. I give clear explanations and examples in my lesson plans to help facilitate learning. I also make learning fun, including articles and videos. My high school students have seen a significant grade improvement.

If you are an Adult and wish to be tutored:

You may contact me detailing your background in French, if any. Let me know why you have decided to learn French (work, improving conversation etc.) and let me know what you hope to gain from our sessions and if there is anything specific you would like to cover. I have many materials to choose from; we can find the ones that will fit your specific needs.

If you are in High School and wish to be tutored:

I will request your class curriculum and your notes taken in class as our guideline for what we will cover in our lessons. I will discuss with the student and his/her parents the areas needing improvement. Language builds upon itself, so we will use our time to build upon concepts to ensure the student's level and comprehension improves. My previous high school students have seen significant grade improvements in their classes. As far as French exams, your grade on any language exam is entirely dependent on the time and effort you put into preparing for it. Because language builds upon itself, cramming is never ideal in hopes of getting a good grade. It is best to study little by little. Because I have taught in schools and have created classroom curriculum and exams , I can go over with you the types of questions that could possibly come up on the test, though each teacher is unique. I can also meet last minute for test preparation online or in person.

If you have any questions or are unsure of whether I am the right tutor for you please free to contact me with your concerns. I enjoy meeting new people :-)

I hope to see you soon!
