About Ken

Bonjour!

I am American, born and raised in France, having lived in Europe for 13 years. I have enjoyed tutoring various ages. I am your ideal tutor for K-12, for prepping to travel to France, Belgium, Lux, Switzerland or Quebec, CA. I can also provide French conversation if you just want to enhance or sharpen your French.

For tutoring purposes, we can work with the materials & books you are presently studying from. If you wish to learn basic French to prepare for a trip I have a variety of books we can use. I can also point you to some good programs, as well as apps. The key to a good tutor, however, is that you need someone to hear the language in order to help you speak the language properly. At various levels of ability, different adjustments are needed with each individual student. Sharpening that skill is a process that will never happen just using software, reading or watching videos. Someone needs to interact with you to provide the right feedback.

Tutoring French is not my profession. It is a work of joy and passion as it is my mother tongue. You will benefit greatly learning French with a native of France on many levels. The exception would be if you are an advanced French student with four or more years, or if you wish to learn French for professional, business reasons. In that case, you will find a better fit with someone who is certified with a higher level of credentials.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Ken

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.

Chess

I am a member of the USCF (United States Chess Federation) and of MLCC (Main Line Chess Club).

I have played chess all my life and continue to take lessons myself from a local master.

I am very good at teaching kids (K-12) and/or beginners to learn the basics, and find the right resources in books, software and online.

Chess is not just fun, but also proven to enhance children's IQ, memory, focus and brain activity, helping them in many other areas.

French

I am American, born and raised in France, having lived in Europe for 13 years. While new to Wyzant, I have enjoyed tutoring various ages. I am your ideal tutor for K-12, and adults beginning French. Also for prepping to travel to France, Belgium, Lux, Switzerland or Quebec, CA. I can also provide French conversation if you just want to enhance or sharpen your French.

I also offer French translation services for personal or business needs.
