I have a Master's degree in French and English. I taught French at UC Irvine for a year, and at Le Lycee Francais de Los Angeles for two years. I then taught English to French president Chirac's daughter (his communication adviser back then) and grandson for a year and translated The Agassi Story into French. In 2005, I started my own business as a private French tutor/translator in Los Angeles and on Skype. My students have come from all over the US, Europe and Asia.
I am a grammarian. It is a family thing. My mother was a very respected French teacher/grammarian in Paris. I master both French and English perfectly well. I truly believe that everything can be explained in French through grammar. There is a very specific way to explain each and every grammar point when going from French to English and vice versa. There is a somewhat perfect mechanism that can allow anyone to understand French grammar. You just have to know the secrets that very few people seem to know.
Master's degree with honors.
I went to a private Catholic school in Paris. I have always been fascinated by foreign languages, and English in particular. It was like a drug to me. I was completely addicted. I worked on my English every day of the year since the age of ten. At 17, I spent a year as an exchange student in Memphis, TN. I went back home to Paris and completed my Master's degree in French & English.
My deep understanding of both French and English gives me a unique perspective on French as a foreign language even though it is my mother tongue. My insight on both French and ESL has helped a great number of students and teachers to do a better job learning and teaching French.
