About Carolyn

I am a retired French and Spanish teacher. I am missing my students and wanting to stay active in the teaching field by tutoring. I lived in Paris and studied at the Sorbonne. I have a master's degree in French. I led 10 student trips abroad during my 35 years of teaching. I am an expert at breaking it down to make it understandable and FUN! I won a prize for excellence in teaching at my high school as well as the 2010 Chapter prize from the Chicago American Association of French Teachers, Chicago chapter. I am dependable, outgoing, and I have gotten very good results with my tutoring students! I have worked with all ages but I do have a special love for the high school level. I know exactly what they need to know and how to help! I am a retired French and Spanish teacher. I am missing my students and wanting to stay active in the teaching field by tutoring.

Excellent French Tutor

She is very thorough. Genuine and sincere teacher. Connects with the students. Works very hard with the students. I am very glad we found her to teach my son. French is a tough language to learn, she made it very easy for my son.
