About Lisa

I love French language, culture, film, and literature and have taught them for 19 years, mostly at the college level. I have also worked successfully with elementary children in an afterschool enrichment program and with older adults in continuing education classes. My favorite feeling is when a student realizes that learning a language isn't about learning grammar rules or vocabulary lists; it's about developing a tool to discover and connect with the world. The grammar and vocabulary are what allows you to continually sharpen that tool and do more and more amazing things with it.

I believe that anyone who can speak one language can learn a new one. I also believe that learning language can and should be both challenging and fun. In my many years of teaching, I have developed approaches that keep it that way for students with different personalities, motivations, and needs.

I hold a Ph.D. in French, have lived in different regions of France for 3+ years, and have traveled extensively in the country.

I would love to help you discover the amazing language and cultures of the Francophone world!

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.

French

I have a Ph.D. in French. I have lived in France for 3 years, and have spent an additional 5 summers in different regions of the country. I have 19 years of teaching experience, mostly at the college level, but I have also worked with grade-school children and older adults. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and all levels of the language.
