It is very rewarding to help students improve in English and French. I have a master’s degree in French, taught over 20 years in college preparatory schools, and lived in France. In English, I have a TESOL International Core Certificate and have taught ESL for 5 years in academic programs preparing students to enter English-medium universities. I am ready to help students with listening, reading, writing, speaking, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and test prep. I am confident my experience, skills, and commitment to your learning will yield the results you seek.
Beginning with a free consultation and questionnaire, I pay close attention to the goals, preferences, and progress of my students. I am very familiar with effective language learning strategies and will help you use them for maximum benefit. I have also coached many sports teams and consider myself a language coach; I will encourage, guide, and challenge you to increase your knowledge and skill.
This summer, I am available most days Monday-Friday 9am-8pm (EST) face-to-face and online, and sometimes on the weekend. My standard rate is $50 in person, and $25 online.

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.
I have taught ESL now for 4 - 5 years in a university Intensive English Program, and a community college readiness program. I have a core certificate from TESOL International. I can help with reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills, as well as vocabulary and grammar.
I have a passion for helping learners improve their English!
My undergraduate major was French. I have an M.A. in French. I have lived in France. I have taught French in high school and college for 20 + years. I have a passion for helping individuals learn and improve in French; I know how to assess and meet your needs.
In my roles as a high school coach, language department chair, and community service advisor, I have given dozens of talks to large school audiences. In addition, I participated in a year-long Toastmaster class to gain confidence and skill. Finally, in my ESL classes, I have coached students about how to give effective presentations. This includes such components as gathering and organizing information, use of visuals, practice and delivery, and feedback.
In addition, I believe in encouragement and building confidence since our thoughts and beliefs are so important. I spent years working with tennis players to help them improve their mental skills and have a passion for helping people learn and grow.
In sum, I believe my experience as a public speaker, language instructor, and coach uniquely qualify me to help you.
