MA Certified French teacher, 16 yrs experience teaching and tutoring k-12 students

Methodology

The national trend in World Language education is moving decisively toward adoption of the ACTFL Proficiency model. While this is an emerging curriculum at most high schools, I am fortunate to be a teacher at a school where Proficiency-based teaching is well-established. I love working with students to share my love and knowledge of the French language. I am particularly successful at helping reluctant French language learners to find their strengths so that they can succeed in their language class.

Background

I am a MA Certified French and ESL teacher with 16 years experience at a top high school. I have tutored extensively and have great references! I have a Ph.D. in Linguistics and am expert at teaching pronunciation. I can help your student to succeed in French in all areas of learning (speaking, listening, reading, writing).
