About Claudia

I'm a French language, culture and literature educator with 15 years of teaching experience, including high school and university levels. I've taught at Georgetown, American, George Mason, Villanova and Trinity universities - so I know what curriculum they demand and offer. I'm a whiz at grammar and grammar explanations. I keep up-to-date with the news of France and Francophone countries. I love French literature, especially the post-war authors like Sartre, de Beauvoir and Camus. I'm fun and interactive!! I strongly encourage individual participation. Students can choose their topics of study, such as author, news event item, etc. I want everyone involved to have a great time learning about the French language and all other things French!

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.

French

I began my love affair with France in 1979 when I traveled to Paris with a high school group. What followed were two summers as an exchange student and translator. After those experiences, learning about France and its culture and language, I decided to devote my career to teaching it. The French School at Middlebury College sealed that deal. From there, I studied as an undergrad and graduate student at the Universite de Paris, began teaching at universities in DC and elsewhere and tutored young students of all levels. I use participation and interaction and my main methods, enveloping students into the world of all things French and Francophone. Grammar remains, however, very important - I use exercises from one of my several French texts to bring out the student's knowledge of sentence structure, verbs and pronouns. Above all, I make learning fun, allowing the student's voice to come through in choosing the material.
