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 currently tutor French in NYC.

I have won a scholarship for excellence in English and have always received high marks in English courses. 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.

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.

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.

Humorous and a true teacher at heart

It's immediately apparent that Charley enjoys teaching. She is patient, knowledgeable, and has a clear plan for my advancement as a French student. She's encouraging at the right times, funny at other times, and pushy when necessary. Most importantly, she listens.

Great Tutor!

Very in depth and knowledgable on the subject of French. Charley teaches not only the basics but the nuances and subtleties of the French language. She'll have you speaking like a native in no time!

Tailors to Your Needs, Very Patient

I've met with Charley several times now and I enjoy her as a tutor. She has been great about tailoring her lessons to my needs while also gently pushing me to become better. I appreciate that she's not "one size fits all" and doesn't make the sessions feel like a chore. I enjoy being tutored by her and I can already see a difference in my French speaking and comprehension. I highly recommend her.
