Bonjour! I am an experienced French tutor, specializing in conversation and grammar instruction. With a Master's Degree in French language and literature as well as personal experience living and working in France, you can feel confident that I am qualified to help you achieve your goals. I am comfortable teaching both children and adults how to communicate effectively in French. I am happy to customize your lessons to your needs. I love the French language and culture and am excited to share this passion with you.

I am also available to tutor English as a Second Language. I have taught English to children and adults from around the world (Central and South America, Europe, Japan, China, the Middle East) and enjoy the cultural exchange. I have a strong foundation in English grammar and techniques for improving conversation.

In addition, I am qualified to teach Elementary subjects (K-6) including pre-algebra, elementary math, reading, grammar, spelling and vocabulary. I enjoy helping children strive for and reach their potential.

I am comfortable with either one-on-one or small group instruction. Tutoring location is flexible. I look forward to helping you in your educational and professional endeavors.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Over the years, I have had first hand experience in watching children grow and learn. I worked for four years as an assistant teacher in private pre-schools on Long Island, as well as two summers as an adult group leader at a summer camp for pre-school children. I am also NYS certified as a Level 1, teaching assistant. In addition, during my 7 years of employment at Berlitz Language Centers, I have taught ESL and French to both pre-school and elementary age children. Most recently, I have tutored elementary students in math, reading and history with excellent results. I love working with children and helping them discover their potential.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker with 7 years experience teaching ESL to students of all ages and backgrounds through an international language school. I have been working for five years as an English instructor at Berlitz Language Centers and have been trained in the Berlitz method which concentrates on speaking and oral comprehension. I conduct both private and semi-private lessons which focus on grammar and usage, pronunciation, conversational skills, reading skills, and writing skills. In 2014, I was named Instructor of the Year by Berlitz of Garden City, NY for my dedication and excellence in teaching.

French

Learn to speak, read and write French! My qualifications include a Master's Degree in French language and literature, bi-lingual work experience, and my current position as a French instructor for a private language school. I will work with you to evaluate your needs and set both short-term and long-term goals. I will adapt my methods to suit your learning style, so that you will make notable progress. Your success in learning French is important to me.

Grammar

As a language specialist, I enjoy teaching grammar to students of all ages. My studies in English, Latin and French give me particular insight into the workings of language. With seven years experience as an ESL instructor, I am confident I can help you overcome your challenges.

Prealgebra

Pre-algebra is often a huge hurdle for young students. My role as their tutor is to give them the skills, understanding and confidence to succeed! My affinity for math, and algebra in particular, led me to complete a college concentration in Math Analysis. One of my success stories involves a rising sixth-grade student who worked with me through the summer and successfully tested into seventh grade math. I strive to bring that same success to every student by approaching each tutoring session with patience and positivity.

Superb French Language Tutor

In order to be effective, a foreign language teacher must be a person of fluency in the language and be able effectively to communicate with tutees at all levels. Christine has these qualities in abundance. It is a delight to be tutored by her. I recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to speak French or to improve their ability to communicate in French.
