About Cathy

I am a teacher who has taught for over thirty years. I taught at Concordia Language Camps for three years. Why is this important? Because the philosophy of the camps is to use the language to teach the language. I graduated from Simpson College, Indianola, Iowa and attended the Universite d' Aix En Provence in Avignon, France. I have returned every two years with students to France, Spain and Belgium. I was nominated for Iowa State Teacher of the Year in 1979-1980, and I received the Iowa World Language Distinguished Service Award in 2008.

More importantly, my students enjoyed my French and English classes because I like students and being around them. I have students who now have their degrees in French and live in France and Quebec.

French is more than just the language; it is a way of thinking about which students so enjoy learning.

I would be pleased to help your child or you discover this world.

Since I have taught a World Language, I am able to use the same pedagogy to teach ESL.

I am also certified in English and have taught it to middle and high school students.

Finally, I am a certified Minnesota substitute. Thanks for your interest.

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.

English

First of all, I am a certified MN substitute. I was nominated for State Teacher of the Year and won a World Language Association Award that is given once every ten years. I have taught English.

ESL/ESOL

I am "grandfathered" in to certification for ESL or ELL. I have many different ways of teaching language due to my world language training. It is important to be student based!
