About Debbie

I am a retired certified French teacher and was chosen as Tennessee Foreign Language Teacher of the Year in 2000 by the Tennessee Foreign Language Teaching Association. I spent my entire career in public schools coaxing sometimes reluctant students to learn French. I can help you make sense out of the French language. I currently teach private lessons and am quite experienced with one-on-one interaction. Need quick results? I can help.

English

I have an extensive background in languages. In addition to studying and teaching two foreign languages, I also taught high school English. My specialty is grammar.

ESL/ESOL

I have an extensive background in languages. I studied French, Spanish, Russian, and German in college, and I taught high school French for 29 years. During my teaching career, I also taught Spanish and English for several years.

French

I have a Bachelor's degree in French and taught high school French until I retired. I led student trips to France almost every summer until I retired.

Grammar

I have a wide knowledge of grammar, due in large part to my foreign language background. In order to teach French grammar, I often had to first teach the English equivalent. I also taught high school English for several years.

Proofreading

As a former high school language teacher, I spent many hours teaching grammar. I also taught high school English working on punctuation and composition. My proofreading skills came from grading essays and compositions.

TOEFL

My background is languages. I was a high school French teacher and spent a lot of time in class explaining grammar, both English and French. I also have experience working with French exchange students to improve their English.

Patient and very intuitive

She took the time to understand exactly what I wanted to achieve and made me feel very comfortable with my skills level. She has experience in French culture as well as the language. In fact, I learned a lot more than just language. Very fun!
