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 have studied French from my elementary school years through college. I spent one semester of college studying abroad at the University of Technology in Compiègne, France. Throughout that time I had the added advantage of living with a host family and experiencing their day-to-day lives. I also completed a job internship while I was there. I spoke no English the entire time I was in France.
