I have a wide array of teaching experience. My teaching background includes having taught adults in the corporate setting, and at Junior Colleges for over 20 years. I recently have been preparing AP students for their college entrance.
Many of my teaching assignments required me to teach intensive, total immersion French to employees being transferred to French speaking countries.
I am very passionate about languages, and really know how to make French fun, exciting and most importantly relevant and meaningful to the needs and time line of my students.
I teach on site in Metro Tampa but also teach online via Skype all over the world. I have students in Florida, the United States and even Europe. I have a wide array of teaching experience.

Andre is a native French speaker who begins with the end in mind. He highlighted to me that phonetics is the key to really being understood, it is the foundation. Just like scales on a piano, learn and master the basics and the rest will flow.
I would add that one senses being in the presence of a real teacher when with Andre. I've met with three instructors in three days, and Andre, in my POV, is the most professional.
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.
Since 1989, I have taught and tutored using “French In Action”, “Le Français des Affaires”, “Sans Frontières”, “Bleu”, “Blanc”, “Rouge”, “Allez viens!” and many other online French teaching methods. I have translated and interpreted (consecutive) on numerous occasions for major international companies. I received all my formal education in Paris, France at the Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers and the Faculté des Sciences in Paris France. I enjoy teaching and tutoring American students and many of my students have traveled to French speaking countries where they are using their French instead of English.
