About Catherine


Bio

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...

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.

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.

New and great experience for our daughter

Our daughter had her first class with Catherine and she liked it very much; pretty much different being only ONE student instead of one of some, but it was really great.

Jochen, 45 lessons with Catherine

Very Creative Teacher

Catherine R. is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher. I am a beginner student who doesn't have a lot of time to study. She offers me creative ways to find time to learn French, with the use of videos and structured vocabulary. I am learning to fit the language into my everyday life.

Aziza, 7 lessons with Catherine

Flexible and encouraging

I've only just started with Catherine as my German tutor. She is very flexible with her teaching arrangements to cater to my desired needs. Catherine is also very encouraging through out the lesson and does not get flustered. She's a very delightful teacher to have.

Very knowledgeable and insightful

Catherine is very easy to communicate with, she reached out and connected with my son's teacher so to best assist his needs. She is always very prompt and makes the sessions very worthwhile!
