I have worked as a French teacher at a small private high school for 7 years, and am now taking private students. I teach all levels, from introductory French through AP French and advanced conversation. My degree is in French Language and Literature, with an emphasis on North African post-colonial literature. I travel to France every year to spend time with family and friends near Avignon.

My approach is patient, enthusiastic, and warm, and my students do exceptionally well in class. I love languages (I speak 6), and I want my students to love learning them, too! 

At the moment, I am tutoring mostly virtually, and my rate is $60 per hour. I have a few in-person spots available for Oakland, Berkeley, and San Francisco, at $80 per hour. I have a great deal of experience working with varying educational needs, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD. I am also experienced in working with the gifted population.

Please reach out with any questions, or if you would like to set up a class. I look forward to hearing from you!
