About Martine

Bonjour,

I am a passionate tri-linguist and registered nurse with a comprehensive understanding of childhood development and adult psychology. These crucial skills allow me to better address students’ challenges while learning a second language. I am adept at evaluating different learning styles and personalities and I adjust my teaching methods according to their needs and skills. In addition, I understand a multitude of teaching techniques (ie, visual, auditive, writing, reading, singing, playing, etc.) and will apply those which are of interest to the individual. As a Native of France and longtime resident of NJ, I understand the various facets and nuances of the English and French languages such as pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, fluency, and the origin of words. I am also well versed in French culture, history, and literature. Having such an extensive knowledge of both languages enables me to easily adjust my lesson plans according to my student’s reactions or unplanned homework assignments, without notice. In all my lessons, I emphasize conversational skills and encourage my students to feel comfortable engaging in a dialogue, regardless of their abilities.

I am experienced in tutoring students of all ages and backgrounds. My students range from pre-school age who are building the foundations of a second language, to high school and college students working to complete their classes (ie, according to school curriculum, TEF exams, etc.) and even to adults preparing to travel on business trips. I work to ensure my students enjoy their lesson and understand it well. I take extra time to explain the material in a relatable manner so the student will remember and further their knowledge of the language.

I am patient, fun, energetic, and eager to transmit my love of languages to others.

A bientôt de vous connaître!
Mme Martine Q.

Amazing tutor!

Very dedicated. She was able to get my son to brush up on a lot of concepts right before his exam. She went through a crash course with him, must have been tiring for her as well. My son loved her. He did very well on the exam, despite the fact that he did not know much before Ms Martine showed up as his savior.
