About SANDRA

I have taught all levels of French for many years, both children and adults, from complete beginners to PhD students at the University of Cambridge. I have a Masters Degree from New York University and the Sorbonne as well as permanent New York State Certification in French. I am also a literary translator who has published 16 books with 2 more coming out in 2015, along with a movie based on one of my translations. My work as a translator has given me expertise in English as well as French. I have taught English to foreigners, business English and once even taught English in French at a high school for a year.

Since moving back to America, I have been working as a translator but find I am missing teaching more and more. Tutoring is the perfect way for a student to learn and progress, without the pressure of being part of a class. I am patient, encouraging and always get good results.

An exceptionally knowledgeable and professional teacher

Sandra worked with my daughter on a senior level French college essay. Her teaching skills along with her experience in translating literature were apparent in the advice she gave and in her understanding of the wording necessary to communicate complex thoughts in French. An excellent tutor.
