About Simone


Bio

I have been tutoring French for 30 years at all levels--beginners, intermediate, to advanced. I concentrate on reading, comprehension, grammar, and correct pronunciation with a perfect accent. I have taught at Berlitz, Inlingua, and now tutor privately. I have worked for 25 years using my fluent French skills for many companies, most notably Cantor Fitzgerald, helping in the translation of the Rodin Collection book for the Metropolitan Museum. I grew up overseas and had a French education....

I have been tutoring French for 30 years at all levels--beginners, intermediate, to advanced. I concentrate on reading, comprehension, grammar, and correct pronunciation with a perfect accent. I have taught at Berlitz, Inlingua, and now tutor privately. I have worked for 25 years using my fluent French skills for many companies, most notably Cantor Fitzgerald, helping in the translation of the Rodin Collection book for the Metropolitan Museum. I grew up overseas and had a French education. All of my schooling since I was a child was taught by teachers from France, which has given me an accent like a Parisian's.

I am a very patient, and considering my lengthy experience, my rate is very affordable at the reach of any budget.

Students come to my location in Paramus, or we can meet in the library or Barnes and Noble nearby.

I love the French language, French literature, films, and following current events. I'm interested in working with students from any level, as I'm very fulfilled in seeing their progress. We can create an individualized lesson plan depending on your needs.

Although I'm new to Wyzant, I have loyal students who continue coming for French lessons regularly throughout the years.

Please contact me with your questions and concerns, and we can then make an appointment for your first lesson. Looking forward to hearing from you!

à bientôt!

I've been living in the U.S. since 1976 and had my French education in Syria when it was under the French Mandate. I speak French as a native and Arabic fluently as well. I am available to teach both French and Arabic-- the formal and colloquial dialects. I have been tutoring both languages privately for the past 30 years and have also taught at Berlitz. You can read more of my French qualifications below. I used to work for a company where I was asked to translate many texts from Arabic to English. I am a very patient teacher and really love tutoring and seeing the progress with my students.

I Learned A Lot

I learned a lot from Simone in just one hour. We talked non-stop, which helped me assess my proficiency in French. Looking forward to having more lessons with Simone.

Grigory, 2 lessons with Simone

Great teacher with a good attitude!

She is a great teacher! I have very beginning level so we started to learn basic things. For example, such verbs as to be, to go, to have. Also Simone helped me with pronunciation a lot! Thank you!!!

Katerina, 2 lessons with Simone

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

It was a nice start to learning a difficult language. We started by checking how comfortable I am with the language and then did an exercise on sentence structuring. Simone is kind and patient. I enjoyed the interaction and look forward to another lesson.
