I am entirely bilingual - French/English. I did a Master's course at university in Paris - the Universit? de Paris Sorbonne, Paris IV. I hold a Master's in education, and I have passed the ETS Praxis World Language French exam and Advanced Placement certification course to be certified to teach French in the United States.

Reading

As a successful English teacher with a Masters in education and over 20 years' teaching experience, I am more than qualified to teach reading at all grade levels and also at university level.


Writing

Teaching writing skills is an essential part of my educational and professional background as an English and French teacher. Due to demand, I am very specialized in academic writing as well as writing for business from e-mails to annual reports. In this era of technology, writing has become quite a complex skill and it is very important to recognize and know different writing styles and what type of written communication they belong to. I find writing very interesting to teach because it has so many variations that need to be understood and used.

As an ESL teacher, opportunities to prepare international students for the TOEFL have often arisen and I have successfully prepared the candidates. I have also been a TOEFL administrator for the exam.
