I have been living in the States for 30 years. I have a BSN degree, in nursing, both from France and the state of New Jersey. I worked in nursing for over twenty years ten of which were in the specialty of pediatrics.
For the last twelve years I have been involved in teaching the French language to children from age four and up using the symtalk method. This method involves the use of pictures, videos, and songs and in grammar school a textbook. I have also tutored both middle school and high school students from various public and private schools in the areas of Union, Somerset and Middlesex, New Jersey.
For college students who are aggressively seeking to learn French, I have been successful in teaching a four-year curriculum of French I, II, III, IV in just twelve months, this being the case for those students who wish to study aboard in France.
My experience has also enabled me to work with adult students who had no knowledge of French but needed instruction because of their employment. Also I have worked with adults who had a basic understanding of the french language and wished to perfect their abilities to speak better and or to deepen their knowledge of French history and literature. Whatever need you have in the area of the French language, I am sure I can be of assistance to you to guide and help you through your journey. A bientot !

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.
We are so fortunate to have Madam Martine as our children's teacher. She is patient, experienced, engaging and simply excellent. Teaching a foreign language is a difficult task. Madam Martine is one of the very few who knows just the right methodology to teach to achieve results. We are very grateful to her.
Martine is excellent. Of course she is a master of the French language, but she is also a good, patient, flexible teacher. She is great all around, from helping with pronunciation and fluent speaking to teaching reading and grammar to correcting written essays.
Martine is the best tutor anybody can have for French. She is a complete "Guru" on the subject and teaches just fantastically !!
Before leaving for a trip to France, I wanted to become more comfortable with my speaking skills. Martine is the perfect instructor. She explains the many rules and exceptions to the rules in a clear manner. She is most encouraging and kind and I truly enjoyed our sessions.
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.
