French Tutors

Tutoring Guidelines
  • Tutors offer French help and conversation practice. Please see below or contact individual tutors for rates.
  •  Tutors are happy to do the following:
    • Provide a word or phrase (not an entire sentence) in French
    • Explain grammar concepts
    • Practice speaking French
  • Tutors will not do the following, because it is considered cheating and will result in penalties for both the student and the tutor:
    • Complete work for students
    • Proofread, correct, or otherwise “look over” or edit work students have done
    • Translate entire sentences
Please contact the tutors directly if you would like to arrange a meeting.
