About Lisa

My name is Lisa, I am a French native and I studied French literature at La Sorbonne in Paris. After graduating from La Sorbonne, I completed a master in Performing Arts in France as well. I tutored French students for many years and worked as an artistic agent in Paris. Therefore I can share a lot about the French culture and customs. I worked very closely with artists and musicians for 4 years before moving to the U.S. in 2004. I currently work at an art agency in Princeton where I manage French illustrators.

Knowing how challenging it is to learn a new language, I can adapt my lessons depending on your requirements and teach conversation, pronunciation, grammar, reading, literature and French culture. I can also help you with homework, review for a test or prepare for the French AP and SAT exams. I am also familiar with the French Praxis exam: World Language 5174.

I worked for 2 years at the French Institute in NYC with children, teenagers and adults, and I have been tutoring students from various Middle Schools and High Schools in the Princeton area for the past 8 years.

All levels welcome! Looking forward to hearing from you.

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

Having taught French to students from 5 years old to adults, beginners to advanced, I use a lot of different methods and I like mixing oral and written expression, as well as oral and reading comprehension. French grammar can be a challenge for students, but I love explaining it, from past tenses to subjunctive, from pronouns to partitives!

Whether you love the language or you struggle with it, my goal is to keep the lesson as fun as possible and make you comfortable, in class, at work or during your trip!

Lisa M. Is the Best French Tutor!! — Lisa started working on French with my daughter when she transferred to a new school in the 8th grade and the French was more advanced than her prior school.

She is professional, dedicated, punctual and very accommodating to scheduling changes ...
