SPECIAL AREAS: IB exams, comprehensible input I'm a lover of languages and learning. To me, speaking another language is like unlocking a secret to another world and I love sharing that feeling with others. I first started learning French in 1993. My 7th grade best friend and I thought it would be very cool to learn French. We had those adolescent daydreams of speaking a "secret" language to one another as we walked down the hall. We didn't quite get there in 7th grade, but French absolutely grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Even after our family moved to a small town that didn't offer French, I still studied on my own until I eventually went to college. The rest is history! My friends describe me as casual, friendly, helpful, and understanding. My goal is to help you reach your goals, whether that means casual phrases for vacation time or building to full fluency. To do this, I listen to the things you want to learn instead of telling you what you must learn. As a certified public school teacher, I know how to structure our conversations to get where you want to go. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Language and Literature, and a Master of Arts in Teaching. I have been tutoring and teaching in public high schools since 2013 and am excited to start an online endeavor with you! I have experience teaching in an IB school and can help you prepare for the IB exam. I also have experience teaching English Language Learners.

We have been so lucky to find Bobbie! Her particular knowledge of the IB curriculum in addition to her expertise in French has been the most helpful to our son (who does not love French Class). She keeps him motivated and on task. He truly looks forward to working with her and finds her incredibly helpful!
Flexible. Very easy to work with. Most interested in helping me learn French
After just one lesson, my son's attitude towards French has changed and improved. He is looking forward to continuing his work with Bobbie.
