I grew up in Paris, France. I hold a PhD from the Sorbonne. I was awarded the Palmes Academiques by the French government, a recognition given to educators and scholars for their instrumental role in promoting French language and culture abroad.

"Even though my children have daily French at their school, they are receiving a great benefit by their time with Anna. Certainly hearing a "native tongue" helps their ennunciation in particular when they speak French and roll their "Rs" with that great French flourish! There is also no comparison to the amount of learning that occurs by the personal attention that a tutor is able to provide. Anna seems to accomplish this in a way (through games and activities) that engage my children and hold their attention and imagination even after a full day of school; this, to me, is very telling and quite an accomplishment. I would highly recommend giving the gift of the French language to children (the language of Diplomats!).I am happy to speak to anyone personally or via email with particular questions!"

"Thank you so much for the great week Sophie had at Fun with French camp. She and her friend absolutely loved it and ran around the house speaking French for the entire week. She is now so excited to take French at school. After the skit that you performed, she was so determined to sing in French that she now has a CD with simple French songs on it that she practices regularly. I especially appreciate you working with us for the class schedule!"

"My 8 and 11 year old children attended the Fun with French summer camp. They have studied other languages, but this was their first French class. They had a lot of fun with Anna. She was able to make the language come alive for them. Immediately following the camp, we went to Paris for 10 days. There was no doubt that the children had learned a great deal during the camp about the language and culture of France. No, they werenÃ¢â¬â¢t fluent in French, but I am sure that they had a fuller experience because they felt so Ã¢â¬ÅconnectedÃ¢â¬Â to the people around them. They were certainly very excited when they ordered their first croissants with success!"

"Wonderful, kind, intelligent, helpful, supportive. all of these words describe Anna as my personal French tutor. She is very patient and understanding, and she thoroughly answers my questions. She is willing to supplement any curriculum you need to use, or she will make a custom curriculum based on your needs and skills. My French speaking, listening, and grammar skills have improved exponentially with Anna's help. You will not find a better French tutor. She has been such a blessing to me. Merci beaucoup, Anna!"
