Hi, I’m Carrie
After teaching college language courses for approximately 30 years, in 2013 I began Carrie’s Language Services to give private language classes and tutoring in French, Spanish and English at any language level. I help with listening-comprehension, speaking, reading, writing, literature and knowledge of the culture. You can view my resume and learn more about me here.
What Students Are Saying…
“Carrie is an experienced and all around excellent language tutor. With many years of teaching experience, I felt she was able to utilize curriculum that applied to my specific learning goals. Over the course of a few months we covered a variety of vocabulary and topics all relevant to the type of language I might use at the office or with friends. Carrie was always patient in her approach, and her flexible schedule made meeting each week easy. I feel my French proficiency has certainly improved with her help. I would highly recommend Carrie’s services to anyone trying to improve their language proficiency.“
