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.

Candace has been working with my son in Honors French III. My son was struggling with the details of the French language and his grades were slipping accordingly. I am thrilled that due to Candace's patient, professional teaching, my son was able to finish the year with an A despite his early struggles. Candace always arrived on time and her delightful personality made the tutoring sessions fly by. She responds promptly to emails and voice messages and is flexible with the scheduling to accommodate my son's busy sports schedule. We recommend Candace without reservation. She is wonderful.
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.
Needed help with preparing for French 2 final. Stuck on a couple of items. Now I feel confident that I can keep my A average!!
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.
