Rivier College (French)
Middlebury College (Master's)
I am an avid francophile and spent three years in Paris studying French at La Sorbonne, Nanterre and Science Politique. I have an MA from the French Graduate School at Middlebury College and completed my thesis in Paris. THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE SCHOOL, RECOGNIZED FOR LANGUAGES, PARTICULARLY IN FRENCH.
My major was in French, learning language, civilization, literature with a well-rounded curriculum in political science, economics, linguistics and art history as well.
I love to teach French to students who might be challenged by certain aspects of the language and also appreciate motivated students who want to really learn the language.
My style is open, participative and focused on the phonetics, pronounciation, grammar and skill sets needed to become fluent. I try to gear the subject matter toward the interest level of the student and find ways to make learning fun and memorable.

Highly qualified and knowledgeable French language tutor. Understanding, patient, caring, warm and friendly. Almost always available. She will definitely help you achieve your goals. You will not be disappointed.
Frederica was a good tutor. She was on time and had pleasant tutoring skills especially in correcting pronunciation, grammar and structure. The translation of some words from English to French was challenging at times due to the nature of specific text.
During summer of 2011 Frederica tutored my daughter who is an international student at Columbia University NYC. Frederica was always very punctual, ahead of the course material and also available for any help on phone. My daughter scored A +.
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.
Aside from being a French/English Tutor, I am an Executive Recruiter and have 15 years experience in Executive Recruiting for senior level executives to include coaching candidates on their profiles, resumes and brand positioning.

I was trained to teach English as a second language to foreigners when I studied abroad in France.
As a native English speaker and a linguist in multiple languages, I am able to recognize and teach the nuances and ambiguities of a language. I have taught English to expats in NYC.
