French Exam Prep

Graduate School Exams

I’ve helped graduate students from Georgetown University, The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), American University, Catholic University and INSEAD prepare for (and pass) their French proficiency exams. In fact, my specialty is exam prep! Most graduate students come for a total of 12 to 15 hours, with lessons that typically last one and a half hours. Ideally we meet once a week or once every two weeks over the course of several months. In fact, one of my students actually fit in all his lessons in just two and a half weeks – and passed!

Foreign Service Exam

I work with students, professionals, and members of the State Department who are preparing for the Foreign Service Exam. Of all the exams I help people prepare for, the FSE is the most difficult. For this particular exam, students average about two months of French tutoring.

AP French Exams

I have extensive experience helping students with their AP French Language Exam, AP French Literature Exam and the IB French exam. Students preparing for these exams generally meet weekly for one hour classes over the course of a semester or school year.

Other French Entrance Exams

I have guided students in intensive individualized study programs to help them prepare for the University of Tokyo French language entrance exam, Bright Language test in French and the DELF exam.

I also provide specialized tutoring for the TEF, TCF, the SAT Subject Test in French and the Praxis II in French.
