I have a PhD in French Literature from New York University. I have always loved to do individualized tutoring in French, whether as part of my Teaching Assistant tutoring duties at NYU, as a tutor at ABC Language Exchange in New York, and with whomever needed help in my various jobs teaching French at colleges. I tailor lessons to the students' needs. I find their level and address their needs from there, but do not hesitate to go further, if appropriate, to help them grow. I reinforce grammar, and can usually sense where errors are coming from, which gives me an even stronger ability to correct them. I go over things until students get them; I reinforce and repeat, and persist in making efforts to help students understand.

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.
