About Catherine

I am a French and German native speaker, fully trilingual in French, German and English. I have tutored privately from children to teenagers to adults for more than two years here in the United States. I have helped many students not only improve their grades but also develop a true love for the language.

I grew up partly in Germany, partly in France where I received an outstanding education in both countries. My mother is German and my father is French. I came to Michigan almost 10 years ago. As a French and German native speaker, I do not only share my languages but also engage students in authentic cultural experiences. With a Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics acquired at the prestigious “Universite Catholique de l’Ouest” in Angers (France), I worked in France as a translator for two years and in Germany as a trilingual executive assistant at Daimler for five years.

Depending on the needs and level of my students, I have used different approaches to teach the language. I put the emphasis on the speaking by using games, small talk subjects, flash cards and books. I also have a wide variety of French and German literature, magazines and textbooks in my own private library that I use for my lessons.

I am a patient, dedicated and engaging educator who is well qualified to provide the motivation and direction students need to successfully learn.

French

I am a native speaker: My father is French. I grew up partly in France where I acquired a bachelor's degree in Linguistics in Angers. I am married to a French man, we moved together to Germany then to the USA. To this day, French is the language that we speak at home, not only with each other but also with both of our children.
I have been tutoring French to students ranging from age 5 to 58. Some of my students go to the International Academy in Bloomfield Hills, the French School of Detroit or are part of an IB-Program in Bloomfield. Some others need to refresh their French skills because they travel to France on a regular basis.

I am a native speaker: My mother is German. I grew up partly in Germany where I received an outstanding education. With a bachelor's degree acquired in Linguistics (Major: German, Minor: English), I worked 5 years as a trilingual executive assistant in Sindelfingen, Germany. I have been tutoring German to students ranging from age 12 to 17. My students go to the International Academy in Bloomfield Hills or are part of an IB-Program in Bloomfield.

One of the best investments in our daughters career! — Our daughter struggled all of last year with French I and that carried over into French II this year. After working with Catherine for less than a month, our daughters grade went from close to failing to over 90%! She is taking an extra initiative to study on her own, looks forward to her sessions with Catherine, and has even started to speak some French around the house. Catherine's professional ...
