About Simone

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!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

French

I have taught French 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, which is why I speak French fluently with a Parisian accent.

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.
