About Isabelle

Yes, Lapin means rabbit in French. I know how funny it is, and I always joke about it saying to French people: “Hey, mon nom est lapin qui mange des carottes! (Hi, my name is Lapin who eats carrots!). I am a funny girl who thinks that you learn a lot better when you are having fun. It is why I always talk with my students about their interests and try to find a way to incorporate them in my teaching. I was born and raised in Paris, France. I married an American man 27 years ago, and after moving around we decided 12 years ago to settle in America. When we arrived, the 2 oldest of my 5 children and I had difficulty acclimating to our new life. I understand how difficult it is to learn a new language; more so, when it is a language that you don’t use all the time. It is why I use different teaching methods in my lessons, incorporating the audible, the visual, and the spoken. When my children were old enough to attend school, I began to teach. We were living in France, and I went to teach English as a second language and mathematics in middle and high schools. My best reward is when meeting former students; they remind me of what I taught them. It means that they still remember what they learn with me after all this time and that makes me proud. When I am not preparing classes or teaching, I love cooking and baking. I also love going with my children to pick fruits and vegetables when the weather and the season permit.

I am looking forward to hear from you and to help you succeed in your studies! A bientot!

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.
