EducationMasters degrees in French and Teaching, University of Louisville. Undergrad Humanities (Art History). 3.98 GPA. Kentucky certified in French and English as a Second Language, grades K-12.
ExperienceHave lived and worked in France. Over fifteen years tutoring experience, all ages and backgrounds, preschool to adult. Have taught full-time (French) in public and Catholic schools. I enjoy working with students to help to determine their needs and goals, and help them to achieve them. I have successfully helped students to prepare for exams (finals, AP), prepare for travel and/or professional activities, or simply to learn for personal pleasure. Happy to focus on oral understanding, speaking, reading, writing or all four as the student prefers, as well as cultural competency. In English, can provide instruction in grammar, usage and composition and literary appreciation/analysis, or simply help student to improve general reading and writing skills.
PLEASE NOTE: although I live in the downtown area, I am also in the Middletown/Simpsonville area at least twice a week.
HobbiesI love animals and I share my home with two German Shepherds (Sam and Mila) and a Silver Duckwing Old English rooster (bantam) named Pierre, who is a former French class mascot. I also spend a lot of time with my off-track thoroughbred rescue, Wendy, helping him (yes, I know he has a girl's name!) to regain full health and become a more well-mannered riding horse--he's also just fun to hang out with... I also love reading of all kinds, from classics to children's books, in both French and English, and conversation with friends of all ages, both old and new!
Client Reviews (1)
Excellent tutor! I studied French in college but haven't used it in several years. I met with Margaret weekly for the past 6 months, and we developed a flexible routine of reading and conversation. She found interesting stories, TV shows, and other items to challenge me, and I feel I have surpassed my prior understanding of the language. I can't recommend her highly enough!
