About Corinne

I have a lot of language tutoring experience which first began 7 years ago when I was a student at Western Washington University. Having lived in France as well as having majored in French and Linguistics I stand apart from my colleagues when it comes to speaking/verbal conversation. While I am more than able to help students understand aspects of grammar - it is accent, french linguistics, real time French lingo and reading that give me a competitive edge.

I have two students currently; one I have had for 2 years and one that will be nearing that bench mark soon. I come highly recommended and although usually I am by referral only I have decided to open my profile to one or two new potential students. I am most prominently known for my ability to improve student grades.

As a tutor, I prefer to take a mentor approach and like to guide students using whatever learning style works best for them (hear, see, touch or any combination of the three.) I enjoy making learning more active and finding ways to bring topics of study to life by placing them within a real-world context. I also prefer to conduct lessons at my own apartment in Sammamish where I have plenty of resources, including a large collection of books, a white board and poster stand.

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.)
