After graduating from college I spent one year studying French at the University of Strasbourg, France. Afterwards, I worked at the Council of Europe, an organization dedicated to improving social issues in Europe. It is also located in Strasbourg, and I worked there for three and a half years. I had a wonderful experience working and living in France, and have visited many times as a tourist since then.
I would like to help you develop and expand your level of French so that you too may pursue your goal of mastering the French language. I offer instruction adapted to your level and objectives. I tailor techniques to correct pronunciation and intonation, improve conversational fluency and improve grammar and spelling. I focus on developing confidence in listening, speaking and reading skills. I am a dedicated and supportive teacher who enjoys helping and motivating my students to achieve their goals.

I've been studying French under Dawn's tutelage for 3 years now, and we're still going strong working together to broaden my knowledge of French. Having passed the basic stages of genders, modifiers, verb moods, we now concentrate on idiomatic expressions and live conversation. I'm never afraid of harsh criticism from Dawn as I try to speak conversational French. I can read the books of select French language authors, and can understand a large portion of motion picture dialogue in French. I have also managed to evaluate works of French literature and cinema with motivation from Dawn. Whatever your tutoring needs; whatever level you wish to begin from or go to, Dawn is the tutor of choice for native English speakers. We're lucky to have someone with her skills in Southern Nevada!

Apres mes leçons avec Dawn, j'apprend le proverbe, "Usage rend maître". Dawn dit moi comment parlez les salutations et les "au revoirs".
My daughter was struggling with her French II class. After the first lesson, she was very excited that she actually understood!!
Dawn was punctual, thorough, patient and very positive. I feel really lucky to have found her!
Dawn and I converse in French to improve my French grammar and vocabulary. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and has notable insight into the language and culture. Dawn has specifically helped me with irregular verbs and tenses. She has also been very flexible with our tutoring schedule. I can strongly recommend Dawn as a French tutor from entry level to advanced French learning. Merci, Dawn.
Dawn is a reliable, patient, knowledgeable, tutor. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn French, whether you are a beginner or more intermediate. She is flexible and a positive joy to work with.
Dawn is an amazing instructor and I had the pleasure of being a student of hers for a few months. She was very detailed oriented and was always a helping hand. Not only did we go through the chapters, she also gave me French cd's which would further advance my knowledge of the french language. Because of Dawn, I have set my own personal goal of learning how to speak French fluently as I am currently taking courses in French. If you have the pleasure of Dawn being your instructor, you will be satisfied with the results.
Dawn was pleasant and patient and while she tutored my daughter. My daughter is doing well in her French studies
I have a lot of fun with Dawn. She's designed my lessons to what I need, conversational french for traveling. I've learned a lot in a short time.
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 graduated from American University in 1982 with a degree in Economics and International Studies. I also studied at the University of Stasbourg, France for one year. I will be completing a B.A. in French from the University of Las Vegas in French in December. I have been tutoring students in French with Wyzant Tutoring for the past three years.
I have advised students about course curriculums at various universities and community colleges here in Las Vegas, as well as other universities. Besides helping my students gain a better mastery of the French language, I have worked with teenagers and adults who wish to continue their education, and further their career objectives.
Having attended different colleges and universities to continue my life long pursuit of knowledge, I have gained much knowledge about many fields of studies and opportunities for students to pursue in college. I feel very competent to counsel students about college.
