About Isabelle

My name is Isabelle and I am from Marseille, France, where I spent the first 25 years of my life. After obtaining a Master's in English at the University of Aix-en-Provence, France, I headed to the University of Utah and completed a Master of Arts in Teaching with French and ESL as my major and minor. There, I also obtained a PhD. in Applied Linguistics with French and ESL as my major and minor as well.

After having taught French and ESL in Salt Lake City for 5 years, my family and I moved to sunny San Diego from 2005-2015 where I taught as a French and ESL adjunct professor in the San Diego Community College District. And now, we have just move to the beautiful island of Oahu and I am excited

Throughout my career, I have instructed and tutored students of all ages from Preschool to Higher Education, both in a school and after school setting, in-home or public places, and online. I am also used to teaching and tutoring students and adults of varied cultural backgrounds with different levels of French/ESL/ESOL, and different needs and interests (exams, SAT, business trips, vacation, hobby, school lessons, etc).

Each lesson is organized according to the student's age--teaching a preschooler requires different techniques and strategies than teaching and adult for instance--or level of proficiency, interests, requirements and benefits, and uses a variety of techniques and strategies to ease you into the language.

I have been successfully teaching and tutoring for 15 years and I just LOVE it!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching ESL for many years in the higher education setting, especially reading and writing skills and listening comprehension as well as techniques and strategies to improve English proficiency in the 4 skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing). I have taught students of all ages with different levels of proficiencies and different cultures.

French

I have been teaching French for 12 years to a variety of students, from preschoolers to adults. I've also taught many different levels of French (from true beginners to advanced and beyond) with multiple interests (class lessons, exams, business trips, vacation, cultural sensitivity, language discovery, etc.)

I design my own lessons, and each lesson is drafted according to the individual student's needs. Therefore, I use a variety of communicative strategies and techniques adapted to the student's age and proficiency level.

At the moment, I am tutoring a 5-year-old attending a French school in San Diego, a 9-year-old who used to attend a French school and wants to keep up with her French, a 13-year0old in middle school, a student at the University of Stanford who wants to take an SAT II in French, and two adults wishing to learn French on a conversation level.
