Bio

After teaching English as a foreign language in Normandy, France for 28 years, I am currently employed with MPS, teaching French to K4s, as well as privately tutoring French and ESL to students ranging in age from 15 to 60+. My goals are my students' goals; with continual review, revision, new material, "doable" homework my students and I enjoy progress!

After teaching English as a foreign language in Normandy, France for 28 years, I am currently employed with MPS, teaching French to K4s, as well as privately tutoring French and ESL to students ranging in age from 15 to 60+. My goals are my students' goals; with continual review, revision, new material, "doable" homework my students and I enjoy progress!

The students I tutor (and I) find my lessons tailor-made, creative, challenging yet fun, interesting, pertinent, gratifying each and every lesson. I have taught in corporate offices, private homes, at kindergarten, junior high, high school, tech school, and university levels. The most common comment I have received over the years is "Already?" in wonderment when my timer goes off, signaling our lesson is over for the day. Encouragement, professionalism, thorough preparation and patience are key to effective teaching, as well as clear, simple explanations to any of a variety of questions a student may have.

I look forward to hearing from you for your first free lesson!
