Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Many students have been suffering in their academics due to online learning brought on by covid. Don't let your student fall behind. I have been supplementing reading and writing skills, helping to edit college application essays, and adding lively French to high school agendas for years. Whether it's ghostwriting your life story, helping you write the perfect essay, or seeing you laugh as you start speaking French, I love making my clients confident and proud of their accomplishments and skills. As a life-long professional linguist and native French speaker, my life is all about language, be it French or English. I offer effective, sound, language basics, as well as advanced level and test preparation. I have learned numerous foreign languages, and understand the struggles entailed in doing so. I teach both in-person or online. As for powerful essay writing, it is a learned skill, the basics of which, if learned at an early age, carry a person through their entire life. I have taught languages at college level (Univ of Pennsylvania), as well as to private students. As a PhD and scholar, I have written and edited 3 books, and many articles and papers. As a quality reviewer, I have monitored translations and readied them for federal court. I both teach and edit writing, as well as ghostwrite other people's stories. Retired now, I currently do private tutoring, mostly online, and some of my students have remained with me up to five years. I love to pore over texts and dictionaries, to edit essays and make them stronger, to see my students - age 8 to adult - in their aha moments as they grasp a concept. I'm a translator and interpreter, always thinking ahead to the next step in the process. I'm a professional writer, always challenging the written word. I'm an anthropologist, fascinated by different people, and I love the long-term relationship resulting from lengthy interviews for ghostwriting, or from working together to get you where you want to be. Laughter, encouragement and reinforcement are my best tools in teaching. Focus and total introversion are my tools for writing and editing. Nothing brings me more pride than a happy satisfied client. I offer the first hour of tutoring for free. We get to know each other, and I can make a full assessment of level and needs.

Benedicte is absolutely amazing. I have had 4 classes so far and each time I took away couple of things I can implement in my daily professional activities. During the first meeting Benedicte was able to identify all areas that need an improvement and prioritize them. This way I do not feel overwhelmed and can focus on the right thing at the right time. There is still a way to go for me, but from the very first meeting I have the confidence that I am in the right hands. No matter if you are at the beginning of your journey or well advanced but still feel not proficient enough, Benedicte can adapt learning experience to your level and expectations. I highly recommend this tutor.

Benedicte is a lovely and patient tutor! Her knowledge is vast and her teaching style is calm and practical. Highly recommend! As an adult student, she struck the perfect balance between proper grammar and practical knowledge for travel and conversation.
