I am a professional teacher and tutor with a passion for bringing to life the French and Latin languages, including their history and culture. I am a specialist in providing practical applications for Latin, such as SAT and ACT test preparations and strengthening English grammar and syntax skills. Feedback from students and parents has confirmed that the skills taught and knowledge acquired in my Latin and Word Origin courses have been beneficial throughout the student's high school, college, and professional careers. These skills include vocabulary enrichment, improved writing ability, better oral communication, and more advanced writing skills.

My passion for French is evidenced by my frequent trips to France, where I lived with French families and immersed myself in their language and culture. I have a Master's degree in French and am skilled in assisting students in making sense of French grammar, vocabulary, and idiomatic expressions, while helping them improve their skills in reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking.

Awesome, encouraging, engaging....

Our first session with Candace was excellent!!! My daughter is in her third year of French and really needed help! Can't wait to see how well she is speaking in another few months!!!

Wendy, 5 lessons with Candace

Great French Tutor

My daughter was struggling in a IB Self Paced French class and very reluctant to engage in private tutoring. After 2-3 months of working with Candace, her confidence and grades dramatically improved. So much so, she has started speaking and texting in French. She is also continuing to work with Candace over the summer even though classed are not taking place.

Garrett, 20 lessons with Candace

A knowledgeable Latin tutor

Mrs. Candace is a knowledgeable tutor and she helped my son out with his 8th grade Latin. He was struggling with grammar and translation work towards the end of his school year. So we sought out help from Mrs. Candace and she was able to quickly bring him up to speed and he ended the year on a decent note. Every class she updated me what she had reviewed with my son and what was taught during the class.
