About Carolyn Inez

I have tutored many students! Their ages range from 7 years to adult. Although most of my tutoring experience has been with students whose native language is English, my strong background in English and communications has also made it possible for me to help French students with their English learning needs.

I began studying French in the 4th grade. I enjoyed it so much that I continued taking the language every year for the next nine years. Then, in college, I majored in French. Prior to obtaining my B.A., I studied for 1 year in Paris, France. A few years later, I spent two years studying at the Sorbonne in Paris, France before obtaining an M.A. in French and International Policy Studies from the Monterey Institute of International Studies in Monterey, CA. I also spent one year living and working in Niger, West Africa, where French is the national language.

I have often been told that I have a natural knack for teaching. I am sure that is due, in part, to genetics (my Dad was a professor). More importantly, however, I believe that I am a good teacher simply because I love to learn and pass on what I have learned to others.

My goal is to enable each of my students to speak, read, write and comprehend the French language with confidence. My method of tutoring has made it possible for me to achieve this goal, even with beginner level students, within three to six months.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am interested in helping non-native speakers of English with their English conversation skills. During the years I lived in Paris, France, I helped five native speakers of French to improve their English language skills. While my interaction with two of my students was based on more formal study methods, three of my students increased their knowledge and understanding of the English language primarily through conversation.

French

I have a Master's Degree in French. I lived in Paris, France for three years, and in Francophone Africa for a year, also.
