Bonjour! I have been a free-lance French interpreter since 1978. Consecutive interpreting for individuals and groups in Western North Carolina. Member of CHICATA, Chicago Association of Translators and Interpreters.

I have taught French for over 35 years, all levels from beginner through advanced levels of grammar, vocabulary, speaking and writing.

What? You can't make heads or tails out of the past tense or the subjunctive? English to French got you stumped? It's easy once you understand the keys! Each language we study naturally poses specific difficulties and traps for the English speaker.

Need reading help? I can help with French study from beginner to university. If you want speaking practice, I can help or look up for the nearest French-speaking group.

Travel is mind-bending! I have visited France 18 times, lived in French-speaking countries for three years, have taken groups of students on school exchanges (to La Rochelle and Nancy, France, under the auspices of School Partners Abroad, SPA). My Peace Corps tour took me to West Africa where I taught English as a foreign language for two years at the Teacher Training College of Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast). In Asheville, I'm a member of ASCI, Asheville Sister Cities and its Saumur committee.
