I studied French for four years in high school prior to beginning my undergraduate studies. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree with a dual major in both French Language and Literature and Psychology from Eastern Michigan University. However, during my senior year of HIGH SCHOOL, I was hired as a French Interpreter for an international airline in its Reservation and Sales department. I worked at the airline full-time while studying French at university full-time. I was literally speaking French the entire day! After my undergraduate work, I continued my studies and obtained a Juris Doctor degree from Michigan State University College of Law. I had the awesome experience of both living and working in Paris, France for three years and also teaching French at all levels at a private college preparatory school for four years. In addition, I have developed French curriculum for public schools while adhering to strict state regulatory standards. Further, I have freelanced for many corporations translating documents, literature, advertising print work and other materials from English to French. I have enjoyed speaking and writing French for over 30 years!
Christopher has extensive knowledge of the French language. He is an excellent teacher and I would recommend him to any prospective French student, at any level of learning. My French speaking and writing skills have improved tremendously after working with Christopher.
Christopher was very knowledgeable and a very informative teacher. He made things very easy to learn and I could not see myself learning any better with someone else.
As his sister, I have first hand knowledge of Chris Horne's character and work skills. I would highly recommend Christopher Horne. He is very intellectual and goal driven. He is fluent in French. He is professional and courteous in every way that matters and works well with students and others. His outgoing and fun personality make him very easy and comfortable to be around as well. He is flexible and eager to help others. When tasked with something, he gives 100% effort and goes above and beyond what is asked of him.
Christopher is great at establishing rapport with his students in order to garner their trust. He’s a great listener and strives to understand the root of the student’s misunderstanding of the subject matter. He is patient and takes the time to make sure his students comprehend what he is teaching. His vast knowledge of English etymology will be an invaluable tool to help his students learn French. His accent is impeccable and again will be an asset to the students under his tutelage.
Christopher is a very dedicated teacher. Taking a personal interest in my child's ability to grasp the subject matter. I highly recommend Christopher; I find his vast knowledge and expertise in the French language to be invaluable, and it gives a student an opportunity to explore the language with enthusiasm.
