About Karen

The French language and culture have been my passion since I was in high school, many years ago. I have taught French to students of all ages from Kindergarten to adult and have materials suited to various age groups and levels from beginners to advanced placement. Most recently, I have been employed at Clackamas Community College as a tutor/aide in a second year French class. I have also tutored a couple who was being transferred to Switzerland and who needed to have some basic knowledge of the language and etiquette of the country. In addition I have given private lessons to high school students who were struggling with their school assignments.

As for my educational background, I have a Master's degree in French language and literature from the University of Hawai'i, Manoa. I also spent a year studying and traveling in France.

In addition to my love of French, I am an avid reader, and also have experience in tutoring English grammar, reading, and math through Algebra 1.

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

French has been my passion for many years, since I first started studying the language as a high school student. I have a Master's degree in French, and have also spent a year abroad, studying French in Strasbourg, France. I toured extensively while there, visiting the chateaux on the Loire River, the Cote d'Azur,the menhirs of Bretagne, the magnificent Mont St. Michel, and of course, the glorious city of lights,Paris, and its environs. I have taught French in various capacities - as a tutor, as a long-term substitute teacher in high school, in a small private grade school, and as an aide in a local community college. I have amassed materials (text books, workbooks, children's books, etc.) over the years and can tailor a program to help you learn French in a fun relaxed way.

Karen was terrific with my son. Very patient and extremely knowledgeable. She brought some of her own material, which was a great help. I highly recommend Karen!
