Bonjour! Hello! I have been in love with the French language and french culture since the seventh grade, studying right through high school honors, at La Sorbonne in Paris and on to a recently completed bachelors degree in French studies at William Paterson University.

I make learning the French language and culture a pleasure for all age groups. Comment allez-vous!? Parlez-vous français?

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 am bi-lingual in French. I have superior talents in English--I was an Honors English student at Ramapo High School in Franklin Lakes, N.J. I was in the National Honors Society. I took an Advanced Placement Test in English that I passed as a graduating Senior, so I did not need to take the required English classes in college. I have studied International Literature, and I have a French Literature degree.
I studied have French for a large portion of my life. I spent 5 weeks studying at the Sorbonne in Paris. I took Language, French Government and Art History, receiving an A and two B's for my efforts. Additionally, I traveled through Belgium, Luxembourg and France as a teenager by bicycle, conversing in French. At Rutgers University, I lived in the French Dormitory on Douglass campus. We spoke French in the house, had a special class just for dormitory residents, and a French table to eat at in the cafeteria where only French was spoken. I currently read in French nearly every day, to maintain my language habits. I took French at Skidmore College, where I received an A, and pursued Comparative Literature as my major at Rutgers University, completing two semesters of French Literature. It's a real passion of mine!
Literature has always been a part of my life. When I was a young child, I read books such as Animal Farm by George Orwell, and Watership Down, a book about a rabbit warren. My studies also include, at the present time French poetry, French history, and classic French stories, all read in my spare time in French. I am also a stickler for French grammar, and continually am reviewing this aspect of language.
I have been an avid reader since I was a small child. During my first degree, I spent a year at Rutgers University as a Comparative Literature major, where I wrote papers for World Literature classes,i.e., literature from all different cultures and time periods. I also was studying French Literature as part of the major. I am very conversant with mythology, fairy tales and tall tales.
I am a very verbally gifted person. Besides receiving a Dramatic Arts degree, I possess a French and Francophone Studies Literature degree.I commenced my college education at Skidmore College, a former "seven sister" to the Ivy League schools, after the time when Skidmore College was an all-girls' school. While there, I achieved a nearly perfect scholastic record my first semester. I took French grammar there, where the focus was on vocabulary. I received an A for the course.
Please consider me to be an excellent candidate for teaching your child vocabulary---I am an old pro.
I am an excellent writer. I can write in French. I graduated with my degree in French, for which I wrote for every grade I received credit for in a course, with a 3.3 cum. Additionally, I know the building blocks of our language, English, through two years of studies in Latin, taken while I was in high school.
