Lesson Details

French

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I was a classroom teacher of French for 15 years to students of all levels. Throughout that time I spent many hours working outside of class with individual students and tutored during the summer. Since 2013, I've been tutoring exclusively, becoming familiar with the programs and textbooks used in area schools.

I particularly enjoy helping beginning and intermediate students build a solid foundation in their understanding of the language while acquiring substantial vocabulary and confidence in their general speaking skills. Believe it or not, I like grammar and love to teach it! If it has you stumped, I'd love to help you make some sense out of it.

When I begin working with a student I try as quickly as possible to identify and address the problem areas and suggest helpful study skills. The ultimate goal is that they become confident learners who see and are pleased with their progress. I am very patient.

Teaching since:
1977

I have a Masters in French from Middlebury College, renown for its language schools, as well as 15 years of classroom experience at the middle and high school levels. During my tenure as a classroom teacher I worked with individual students on a regular basis and for five years now, I have been tutoring exclusively.

While studying for my Masters I lived in Paris. Since then, various summer courses and teacher workhops have led me to Auvergne, Normandy, Lorraine, and Montreal where I also lived with local families.

Pamela is very patient and knows her subject! My daughter really enjoyed her easygoing style. Our money was well invested, as Pamela takes her work seriously and much is accomplished in every session. She is a real gem!
