French Language Tutor with many years of studying and working professionally in France

Methodology

I try to find what a student's strengths are, and orient my lessons around their way of thinking. For example, students who are good at math can better grasp the grammar of a language when it is presented in a formulaic fashion. Whereas, other students of language do better with immersion and repetition.

Background

I am an American who spent two years in France as a child attending local schools in France. I later returned to France for university studies, and professional employment. As a military officer, I also have experience working and communicating directly with the French military entirely in French. Lastly, I have obtained high scores on many different French language tests, and have many years of experience tutoring students of French.
