My name is Chelly and I am a very experienced tutor. I have been a tutor for most of my adult life (in Europe), tutoring French while working towards my own undergraduate degree in French Language and Literature, then continuing on, after graduating Law School, as a professional tutor of almost all Law School subjects for students who fail the same courses in Law School over and over again. Also, I have helped struggling students to LEARN how to study in general, helping them set up a reliable way of studying and preparing for exams. I developed my own business as an independent tutor to students of my alma mater.
I also have extensive experience in tutoring high school and freshman college students in French, with an emphasis on syntax, vocabulary and grammar.
In my experience, following up my lessons by getting students to read some (slim!) novels, even magazine or newspaper articles, in French will really help them get a proper feel for the French language, as well as helping them with "slang" expressions!!
Born in the Netherlands, and still fluent in the Dutch language, I am also well qualified to help you with any Dutch language study programs or translations you may need.
I have a genuine, lifelong passion for teaching, and a love of imparting knowledge to my students. I tend to develop a friendly relationship with my long- time students as the months go by, while remaining strictly professional.
I am looking forward to hearing from all you people out there, who need help speaking, writing, reading and translating Dutch and French! Hi,

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.
I am a Dutch citizen, born in the Netherlands. I lived there for 45 years, prior to moving to the US. I finished high school, college and law school there, and started my own tutoring company, which I ran for 17 years, doing the actual tutoring myself. Since I'm a native speaker of the Dutch language, and completed the highest level of education one can get in my home country, obviously I feel I am well qualified to teach the language. (In addition to this, I got a teaching qualification in law school for teaching Dutch social studies, etc.)
I have been speaking and reading French since I was 14. I have traveled in France extensively and know the French culture and mentality pretty well. I studied French for 6 years in middle and high school, as well as getting an associate's degree in French language and literature, just stopping short of my BA in French by switching to law school. (I have my LML as well). I love the French language, and have always felt very much at ease in France, and with French people in general. It will be my pleasure to help you guys out there who want to learn to understand, speak and write in proper French, no matter what your current level of fluency is.
