Originally from Pensacola, FL, I graduated from the International Baccalaureate Program at Pensacola High School. I am a recipient of the Mark Pinnell Memorial Scholarship for excellence in English and a foreign language (French). I completed my Bachelor's degree at Vassar College where I double-majored in French and Francophone Studies and Drama. I minored in Art History. I went on to complete my first Master's degree at Dartmouth College where I received a Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies, analyzing the entertainment industry from historical, business, legal, and creative perspectives. I love learning and like to make it fun for those that I am teaching! I have tutored French and have taught swim lessons since I was a collegiate champion on the All-Seven Sisters Team at Vassar.

I have spoken French since the age of 5 and was educated in French grammar and culture for over 17 years. I have won two scholarships due to excellence in French and am a member of the French National Honor Society. French and Francophone Studies was one of my majors at Vassar College.

I have won a scholarship for excellence in English and have always received high marks in English courses. I had the highest grade in my high school's graduating International Baccalaureate class for my Extended Essay. I am a native speaker and also write professionally as both a songwriter and a screenwriter. I have also worked for literary magazines at the high school and graduate school level and have experience proofreading for grammar and spelling. I have always been an impeccable speller.

In addition to my academic pursuits I am a creative working in the acting and music fields! I love to connect with people and help make learning easier, more engaging, and more fun.

Excellent Tutor

My son feels comfortable with her and he’s eager to learn and her encouragement has helped. She’s is a great tutor and makes sure she is available anytime we have a question or concern.

Knowledgeable and easy to talk to. A great lesson on grammar and spoken french. Charley was extremely patient and broke down each point to make things easy to understand.

Awesome French tutor

Charley is helping my daughter with her IB French. She is friendly, knowledgeable in the subject and professional. My daughters fluency in French has improved and she looks forward to her sessions with Charley every week. Lucky to have found her!

The best Screenwriting teacher a student can ask for

I am currently working on a screenplay and desperately need help on it. Being serious about my script, I thought I needed a tutor and I contacted Charley. Boy, I am so glad I did. Coming from someone who owns every screenwriting book you can find in a book store, I feel like tossing them in trash because Charley is someone who every screenwriter needs and puts those books to shame. Like screenwriting heroes such as Robert McKee, Syd Field and Blake Synder and modern writers like Jordan Peele and Diablo Cody, Charley is all those writers wrapped into one. Her knowledge and style will help you become not just a better writer but make you love and appreciate your work more. She is patient, honest and will explain things to you that are extremely important that every screenwriter should know. Whether you are a beginner like me or a pro, everyone should be tutored by Charley. When I re-wrote my first scene, I felt extremely confident after my session with Charley. Charley gave me both the tools and confidence I need to write better. Highly recommended. If you are serious about your story/script or even an idea don't hesitate to contact Charley.

Organized and extremely supportive

I've been doing lessons with Charley for about 3 months now. She's very organized and has structure, and does it in a casual and fun manner. She is always very supportive and tailors to the speed of the student. I highly recommend her! We worked on passé composé, imparfait, reading and conversation for this past lesson.

She encourages learning for understanding and are concerned with developing their students’ critical-thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and problem-approach behaviors. .

R, 1 lesson with Charley

Amazing Teacher!

Charley is a great teacher and thought me from the basics and very fun to learn from Charley. I would take more lessons from Charley to improve my French Knowledge. I wish all the best to Charley.

Effective Learning Experience

Charley knows how to guide a student to learn the essence of French. Not only have I learned the grammar and the vocabulary, but also the logic and the culture embedded in the language. She also encourages me to bring any French articles that I am interested in as part of the teaching. This helps me integrate the language into my real life and shows Charley's ability to teach beyond the text book.
