About Kathleen

Hi!

I received an undergraduate degree in French and immediately moved to France to teach English in the public schools. I primarily helped students with their conversation skills, but also worked with them (middle and high schoolers) to build their knowledge of grammar. When I wasn't teaching in the classroom, I gave private tutoring lessons. For example: two of my students had very advanced English, so we just sat and talked about life for an hour, improving their conversation skills. Three other private students were struggling in class, so we reviewed grammar rules and studied for upcoming tests. One of these students in particular went from failing the class to receiving B's!

While a graduate student at Kent State University (Master of French Translation), I was a French instructor for two years. I taught college students basic to advanced grammar rules, and even taught a course on French literature. These courses were taught solely in French (no English allowed!) and were a lot of fun.

I have been studying French for the last 15 years of my life, including living in France for 2 years. I offer French as well as English lessons -- from ESL students to native English speakers. I am enthusiastic, energetic, and passionate and would love to work with you so you can better understand the nuances of French and English!

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 have a Bachelors in French and a Masters in French Translation. While in grad school, I taught all four levels of French offered at my university, reviewing vocabulary, grammar, and literature. I lived for two years in Central France teaching English in the public schools and learned all about French culture and French language.
