About Karen

Hello! My name is Karen. I have a B.A. in Urban Studies from Bryn Mawr College and a B.A. In French Language and Literature from Buffalo State College. I also studied for 9 months at the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi. I adore speaking in a foreign language and I will be very patient with your efforts to express yourself in French. In my experience, making an effort to speak without shying away from mistakes is the only way to learn French! So don't be shy! Contact me! Hello! My name is Karen.

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

I earned my second bachelor's in French Language and Literature from Buffalo State College. (My first bachelor's was in Urban Studies from Bryn Mawr College.) I received a near perfect grade of 941 out of 990 on the Test de francais international. A score of 500 was required to enroll in university classes in Quebec. My score indicates that I have "professional level competence in French." This test was administered at the end of the nine months I spent studying French and economics in an entirely francophone region of Quebec, Canada. I really like the creative process of using language and creating meaning. I want to give my students plenty of opportunity to use French creatively and as an educational tool, to learn about francophone perspectives and the world around them.
