About Corinne

I am a native French. I love tutoring and I have been teaching French for the past five years. I experienced both teaching to a whole class of students in high school and to adults at home.
I have a Master’s degree in Journalism (France).
I was a journalist in the past, on the radio and for newspapers. I lived in Germany in my twenties.

I have been translating for 5 years and thanks to my experience in teaching and knowledge of both English and French languages, I also supervise as a proofreader the translation (Eng-Fr) of 15 books for a publishing company.

I speak German, English, French with work experience in global, multicultural environments.
I was a class representative for 6 years in-a-row. I was best out of 2,000 students at the French literature exam we take at the end of the senior year. It gave me the idea to pass on this knowledge to other students, and so I did.
I helped high school students in America who trained to enter the best colleges and wanted to improve in French. I also trained those in France who aimed at entering the most prestigious French schools after the age of 18, with a very difficult level in French and English. I helped some with the TOEFL and the Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English.

I am very dedicated to what I do and I especially like teaching to one person at a time, it creates a unique mood for learning.

We can get help from the books, but we can also have a conversation in French, cook French recipes, you pick your topics and the lessons style.

I love children and I think reading books is a great way to develop imagination for a pupil. I expect that all students can and will achieve our goals, and I don’t give up on underachievers. I keep pupils motivated with varied, lively approaches. I like best pupils who are around 6 or 7 years old, that's when they really are eager to learn and make their own choices.

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.

English

I have taught English back in France at several occasions: in my twenties in High School, and in my forties in High School, private and public. I use a lot of tools: movies, songs, comic books, novels, magazines. My educational background includes a Master's degree in Journalism and English.
