About Candace

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

French

I taught high school French in the area for 30 years! I have a Master's degree in French and have taught all levels of the language, from first year to Advanced Placement. I have spent many summers studying and traveling in France, and can help students with all aspects of the language: reading, writing, grammar, speaking, and listening comprehension.

Latin

I have been teaching high school Latin in the area for over 30 years! I have a degree in Latin from the University of Michigan and have taught all levels of the language, from first year to Advanced Placement. I emphasize grammar and vocabulary acquisition as well as reading comprehension. My students have traditionally scored high on the National Latin Exam. I believe that my passion and enthusiasm for Latin is contagious and instrumental in the success of my students!

Absolutely the Best

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
