About Pamela

Bonjour! I have had thirty years of experience as a certified French teacher, which also includes tutoring those students who needed some extra help. While classroom teaching has its benefits, I find that the one-to-one experience is where deeper learning often takes place. The student can ask the questions he or she may be to shy to ask in the larger classroom setting, and the student gets all of my attention, and I can spend more time to explain points that a class period may be too short to cover. Teacher and student have a greater opportunity to work together; fear and uncertainty can disappear, which makes progress more possible. When the student is able to relax because he or she is unafraid to ask questions - and make mistakes - without being judged by his or her classmates, learning can happen.

Apart from many years' experience as a teacher, I have excellent pronunciation and bring solid knowledge about the language to my teaching. I have taught French from beginner to Advanced Placement levels, and the students I have had at the Advanced Placement level have achieved high scores on the AP examination.

Students are encouraged to contact me if they wish to learn more and to schedule lessons. I require a 36-hour cancellation notification. I expect my students to practice seriously, particularly their speaking and writing skills, which are often the most challenging areas for students learning French.
