About Corinne

Overview: As a tutor I am passionate and excited about what I teach, and this particular zeal combined with my extensive tutoring experience has contributed to the many outstanding reviews on my profile; all written by either my own students or their families. Please take a moment to read these recommendations as I believe they speak volumes to my credit and best reveal my character as a highly capable tutor with a proven track record of ongoing success.

Tutoring Style: With a charismatic personality I make classes fun and prefer to take a more personal/mentor approach. As a tutor I have a highly flexible and variable method of teaching, involving a tailored approach to an individuals learning style; whether auditory, visual, tactile or any combination of the three. I also enjoy making each session active and like to find ways to bring topics of study to life by placing them within a real-world context.

News: My last two students went to College this year and I currently have openings! I am reaching out to students here before broadening my search. Although I used to be by referral only - I recently moved to Bellevue and have decided to change that policy due to the new area.

Past Experience: I have extensive language tutoring experience beginning 7 years ago while I was a student at Western Washington University. Having lived in France for a year as well as graduating with a double major in French and Linguistics I stand apart from my colleagues when it comes to speaking/verbal conversation in either language. I currently work in Logistics in Manufacturing at a big company in Bellevue and converse in French often with one of the Canadian plants I manage. Beyond that I also do contract translation and provide other writing services on a short term basis.

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

Fluent in French: C2 DALF certified, indicating attainment of the highest level of French language proficiency as administered by the Ministry of Education in France. As a French Tutor in my free time I also conduct weekly lessons to two long-term students and also work as a freelance B2B French translator with particular focus in the tech field. (*Currently working with CSG Services and translating technology based French calls into English by contract.)

Clear command for the subject matter.

Our son had been struggling in his high school French 2 class for several weeks and Corinne's clear passion and interest in the topic has given him new hope for success. While I doubt it will ever be his favorite topic, he now has the confidence that he can be successful and achieve his goals in this subject.
