I have been teaching at Belleville High School for 36 years, all levels of French. I have attended many workshops throughout my career on teaching AP French as well.
My undergraduate degree in French and Education is from Montclair State University. I have also studied in Paris at the Sorbonne University and in Montpellier at the University of Paul Valery. My master's degree in Educational Administration is from Seton Hall.

My family background is French and Portuguese and I have visited France countless times visiting family and as a teacher guide for 28 years. I have proudly shared my love for French, its culture and history with over 200 students and adults as a tour guide.

Sharing and teaching what I love is my pleasure and passion. I have most recently retired as of 2013, so my availability is flexible.

Wonderful and Patient French tutor

Irene is an incredible teach worth every penny. She takes her time to make sure you understand French grammar rules while also taking time to read with you and speak French during your lessons. She is always on time and organized with handouts and she will work with you out of your book as well. Irene has a passion for French teaching and that is clear in every single lesson!

Patient and supportive

Madame Irene is super patient listening to my very slow spoken French. She has a lot of experience with teaching French at different levels and is really helping me progress.

Great tutor, very patient and very responsible. My daughter is very pleased with how much she learns from Irene in her weekly sessions.

Excellent French Tutor

I wish that all teachers had Irene’s traits. She cares about her students and is very responsible. My daughter did not have a good foundation and was having trouble when she reached French 3. She was struggling to maintain a C and at the edge of failing quizzes and exams toward the end of first semester. Luckily, I found Irene and started tutoring lessons. Not only is my daughter is more confident with the language now, but she also pulled her overall grade up by at the end of the school year. I highly recommend her as a French teacher. It is very hard to find a good language teacher, especially those teaching at a high level. We are fortune to find this retired French language teacher.

Irene is all you could want in a tutor and great friend! I feel confident in my French and am ready to travel to the French countryside.
