About Ros

I love helping other people learn a new skill, or improve an existing one. When tutoring works well, everybody wins! We all have to start somewhere. I was fortunate to have amazing coaches and mentors who helped get my 12-year career as BBC journalist in radio and TV off a great start, so I know personally the benefits of getting a step-up to achieve your best potential.

If you're looking for a tutor, it means you're serious about doing your best - which is all anyone can ask. I would love to work with you to help you succeed. I hope that together we can go further than you can on your own, and make it fun along the way!

I have a real English accent(!), and wrote, produced and presented BBC news bulletins for over 12 years, in the UK. My undergrad in French included some translation and linguistic work, which provided me with a much richer understanding of the English language. I love explaining Shakespeare, and getting into British novels by authors such as Dickens and the Bronte sisters.

After graduation I worked as a journalist at 'Radio France Internationale' in Paris. I also lived in Toulouse for a year during my undergraduate degree. I have joined French conversation groups since coming to the US. I enjoy helping students with French pronunciation and grammar, up to and including high school level.

I have a fairly flexible schedule, so contact me if you think I can help you as you work to get closer to your full potential. I look forward to meeting you.
