About Simon

I have a degree in French with Comparative Literature (Honors) from the University of East Anglia in the UK. I have also completed a course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Before settling in the USA, I was a French teacher in a private school in England and an English teacher in France, helping students from the age of 11 to 19. I have also taught technical vocabulary to company executives in an industrial setting in France and have tutored French one-on-one from beginner to advanced level.

My family is still French oriented, with a sister, whose son is bi-lingual, living in France, and a brother, whose wife is French, living in Scotland. Their children, also, are bi-lingual.

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 successfully completed a course in Teaching English as a Second Language during my undergraduate studies at the University of East Anglia in the UK. Before settling in the USA, I was a French teacher in a private school in England and an English teacher in France, helping students from the age of 11 to 19. I have also taught English technical vocabulary to French company executives in an industrial setting in France.

French

I have a BA (Hons.) degree in French with Comparative Literature from the University of East Anglia in the UK, and have taught French in a classroom setting from ages 11 through 19. I have also tutored French one-on-one to adults from conversational to University level. With a large part of my family being bilingual, and some members living in France, I have kept up with modern idiom and current affairs.
