I grew up in a household where two languages were spoken. When I began my studies of French, it was very natural for me to make different sounds and think in another way. A year studying in Paris during my junior year in college cemented my love for the French language and culture. After graduating, I began my career as an educator. Even though I have retired from teaching, I continue to work as a consultant. In that capacity, I train teachers, tutor students and provide services to school districts. I am certified in Massachusetts as a teacher of French, a supervisor and an assistant superintendent.
I view my role to be that of facilitator of learning. Using engaging strategies, including videos, games and role plays, I help students develop their language communication skills. I believe it is more important to learn to use the language than just to learn about the language by focusing on grammar drills. Students often comment on the clear and logical way I present material and concepts.

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.
