Enchante French Tutoring and Culture
About this pro
To me, French is the most beautiful language in the world, complimented by a rich, sophisticated culture: the culinary delights, the art, the enchanting Parisian cafe lifestyle. Embrace the many possibilities of exploring French. Learn beginner, intermediate and advanced French conversation, grammar and more. Take the internet tours of the Louvre, Lyon and Limoges. See the historic architecture of Notre Dame, Versailles and the scenery of Paris along the River Seine. With a Masters in Teaching French, from the College of Notre Dame de Namur and a BA in French from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, I have been a French tutor for over 20 years for a variety of students and for the famous global language learning and cultural training corporation, Berlitz. In addition to tutoring a range of clients in my studio, I am the French tutor for Annapolis Area Christian High School. I have taught students of all ages, from 2 to 83. Some are interested in conversational French to prepare them for a trip to Paris. I provide them the essential language tools while traveling in France, from ordering a cafe at a Parisian bistro, asking for directions to a musee, purchasing tickets for an evening soiree and more. The tutoring I provide is always centered on the student's current needs. In general, my tutoring for my middle school students is focused on conversation while my high school level tutoring lessons are focused on grammar and the beginner, intermediate and advanced curriculum suggested by the Middlebury College Online for language. For younger students, I teach interactive arts, crafts and cooking to build vocabulary. The elements of early language learning are always vital to success in any career. I hope you are ready for a positive experience with the French language, arts and culture. It will be a pleasure to meet you. - Enchante
