I have 20 years experience as a classroom teacher and tutor. I have worked with elementary, middle and high school students teaching Spanish and French. I also have experience working with students to improve their organizational skills and effective learning strategies. I am very patient and encouraging. I take time to get to know my students to learn what their learning goals are and to assess their strengths and weaknesses so that I can develop an individualized learning plan for each student. I have lived in Costa Rica and in France and have excellent pronunciation in both French and Spanish. I am very positive and make learning fun. I love working with students one on one and watching them progress and build their confidence.

I also hold TESOL certification and have extensive experience working as a foreign language teacher and tutor. I understand what it takes to teach non native speakers English as I also have personal experience learning foreign languages. I have worked with adults and children, as a tutor, teaching them English as a second language.

I hold an experienced educator certificate from the state of NH with endorsements in Spanish and French which qualifies me to teach elementary, middle and high school. I have taught beginning and intermediate Spanish at the elementary, middle and high school years. I spent 11 years teaching middle school Spanish at a private independent middle school and many of my 8th grade students were able to go to Spanish level 3 as freshmen in high school. My students of all abilities have shown great improvement and did well in my classes. I have also tutored high school beginning level French and taught middle school French. Feedback from students and parents is that my classes are fun and interesting and as a teacher I provide feedback to students and parents.

The key to a good teacher-tutor relationship is good communication and a clear understanding of expectations. A positive relationship is critical to the success of one on one tutoring. I encourage you to

Fabulous tutor!

Catherine is very personable. Her gentle, patient and cheerful attitude is so encouraging! She made me instantly comfortable and it really helped ease my anxiety about speaking. Highly recommended!

Jani, 3 lessons with Catherine

Wonderful tutor

Catherine tutors my 8 year old daughter in Spanish. She uses creative ways to engage her in learning and my daughter absolutely loves her lessons. I would highly recommend Catherine as a tutor.

Jessica , 13 lessons with Catherine

Patient and engaging

Catherine is tutoring my 7 year old in French. My daughter has zero history with French, so she needed to start from scratch. Catherine is creative, patient and keeps my daughter fully engaged! I highly recommend Catherine for a child or an adult.

Sharon , 3 lessons with Catherine

Knowledgeable

She taught my self how to correctly using spainsh verbs and pronunciation. Catherine is such a good tutor and is very helpful. My son enjoyed his session with her

Veronica, 6 lessons with Catherine

Excellent job!

Catherine was very professional and knowledgeable. She worked with our son to review his assignment and the work he has been doing thus far in intermediate Spanish. This intermediate class is his first exposure to the language but after one lesson with Catherine, he felt very comfortable and confident working with her and has requested additional lessons.

Remeise, 23 lessons with Catherine

Wonderful French teacher for our daughter

Catherine is a great with our daughter. She makes class interesting and our daughter is really progressing. Our daughter looks forward to her lessons which is very exciting to see.

Dana, 22 lessons with Catherine

Highly recommend!

Catherine is working with my 7th grade daughter helping her get ready for an upcoming Spanish test. After only the first session it is clear that she has been an excellent choice and we have several more lessons to come in the next few days. My daughter's confidence has already improved and she is excited about the upcoming time with Catherine as they continue to prepare. Catherine has been wonderful with communication with me and even spent time reviewing some of my daughter's school work to familiarize herself with the material that will be covered on the exam. I am super impressed and will definitely continue to book tutoring sessions with her!
