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.

Cooking

I lived in France for nearly 2 years, and both took a cooking class and studied their cooking style intently. I love the French way of cooking and eating and am passionate about passing on skills, recipes, and tips. My cooking style is influenced most by southern France which is mainly where I lived, but I do pull from other areas as well. Favorites of mine include quiche, duck, daube provencale, and of course the delicious cheese after the meal. I am a fun and creative coach and would love to help you as you embark on the world of french cooking. Please be in contact with any requests or questions.

French

My basic French classes touch on each of the following: grammar, vocabulary, speaking and understanding, and I do my best to keep it fun. I am also available for conversation classes.
