I'm passionate about teaching and a patient, friendly, experienced teacher of English language arts and French. I lived in France for 10 years. My students have been in elementary through high school, as well as young adults. They have been from the US and many countries and have had all levels, beginning through university students.
Judy Bogan is an experienced language teacher who has a solid academic background and training in her area of expertise. She is fluent in French and spent many years in France developing her skill. She also trained in teaching ESL, English as a Second Language, and she taught for several years in China and then in the US at an intensive English institute. Judy is pleasant and easy-going, and she exhibits a sincere interest in her students’ success and welfare.
I have been tutoring and teaching over 15 years and taught over 100 students. I have helped my students improve their grades in English language arts, history, French grammar and conversation. Many have graduated from high school and gone on to the university.
