About Matthew

Bonjour! ¡Buenos Días!

Do you want to learn a language?
Are you having troubling in your language class?
Maybe you want to get ahead and practice your Spanish or your French.
Do you have a trip coming up?

If any of these apply to you, I can help. My name is Matthew F., and I am a French and Spanish instructor at NNU. I am a teacher at a local high school as well, where I teach Spanish concurrent credit classes.

I have 13 years teaching experience - with students ages 4 - 74 - and 16 years living abroad. I'm flexible, honest, patient, but also challenging. I love teaching, tutoring, learning, but most of all witnessing the "light bulb" moment. I also love traveling back home to France, where I was born and raised.

This year is coming to a close, but summer is fast approaching. Taking a summer class? Want to get a head start on next year?
I guarantee a change of attitude, a change of perspective and a change in your grades.

Consider signing up for a few sessions. I can help you prepare for a trip (translations, travel tips, useful phrases, etc...) or we can tackle the language head on. Tell me your goals, your experience and your availability and we can get started right away!

A très bientôt. ¡Hasta pronto!

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.
