"This is what I can offer to potential students:

ADULT - French for travelers, including passive vocabulary (what you might need to understand someone) and active vocabulary (what you might need to say). We can discuss cultural aspects that the traveler might encounter, as well as ideas on how to get around and sites to see.

ADULT - French more in depth for those who want to take on a serious longer term series of lessons in French. We would use a text which offers a coherent structure in the lessons as well as an organized sequence to the material. This does not preclude the student using web sites in between lessons and my bringing in other resources to complement the lesson. I like to speak as much French as possible in the lessons, but this depends on the comfort level of the student.

HIGH SCHOOL - For high school students whose school does not offer French but who want to learn French outside of school. Suggested minimum meeting: 2 times/week for retention and practice.

I have taught for 43 years in various high schools in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Massachusetts. My B.A. degree is in French and German. I lived in France for a year in the mid-seventies where I not only gained fluency but also confidence in the language. Since then, I have done summer classes in Tours, Rennes and Toulouse (France)and Quebec City and been the recipient of two NEH grants (Montreal/Quebec and Dakar, Senegal). I have been involved with school to school exchange programs with Marseille, France (six exchanges) and Abidjan, Ivory Coast (three exchanges).

In addition, I have organized and lead a number of two week spring trips to France where the students spent 6 out of the 13 days with a French family.

My greatest asset is my ability to adapt my teaching to where the student is at. I can bring in different techniques depending on the needs or level of the student. I believe in teaching incrementally, always just one step beyond where the student is at and bringing him or her one step further in skill building.
