I am a fluent French speaker and have taught both in France and the United States. My goal is to make my students comfortable with the French language so that they can function in another country and understand the culture as well. I have worked with middle and high school levels as well as adults looking to increase their speaking and writing skills.
If you need tutoring services to help you feel more confident in your French knowledge or need a person to help you enjoy travel in French speaking countries, I will be glad to assist you. My teaching style is based on using the language in a real way and helping my students to enjoy as they learn.

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.
I lived in France for many years, and this language has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I enjoy teaching authentic French and combining knowledge of culture and customs with the language skills necessary for learning the language. My experience with teaching French has involved private and public school teaching as well as creating exchange programs between France and the United States. I currently am teaching at UMass Boston.
