About Christine

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 5 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 and reading with excellent results. I love working with young children and helping them discover their potential.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker with recent 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.
