"Lisa is a Mother of 3 from Germany and loves to teach!"
I began my mentoring career while still in high school myself. I grew up and went to school in Germany. There are four different kinds of high schools, with the "Gymnasium" being a classical school preparatory to the universities. In the [Gymnasium] I chose the language branch, specializing in the studies of Latin, English, and French, earning proficiency in Latin. My teaching experience started back then when my Latin teacher arranged for me to assist other classmates. It was a joy to watch ... ... More
""I cannot live without books." -Thomas Jefferson"

Monique is a uniquely qualified instructor in French. I studied French in college (many years ago) and while I can still read French fairly well, my ability to carry on a normal conversation has eroded over the years. Monique assessed my skills in our first session, suggested several excellent approaches and exercises, and made me feel completely at ease. I cannot recommend Monique strongly enough to anyone who would like to work on their French.

"strong reputation as a caring and professional teacher "
Although I just retired from a long career as a teacher, my passion for teaching has not lessened, and I still have a strong desire to educate in a tutoring capacity.

I have taught kindergarten, second through fifth grades, and sixth grade in the last eighteen years. I was born in France where... ... More
