Catherine Prezelin Yassa
My name is Catherine Prezelin Yassa. I was born in Anjou three hours West of Paris, France.
I spent my childhood in Segre in the Loire Valley and attended the Lycee Francais and was very interested in History, Geography and world cultures.
My parents owned a “Patisserie confiseur” business for generations in Segre hence my sense of French delicacies. When we study French, we will experience not only the language but the taste and the culture of France.
I worked in Paris for 10 years for Editions Arthaud in the marketing department managing the business in the sales of Travel books and magazines and other travel items.
I have also worked in Neuilly sur Seine in Property Management specializing in leasing to small businesses.
I have lived in Soquel for 13 years and my daughters Laura 15 and Victoria 11 speak, read and write French fluently.
I have been teaching French in Santa Cruz County through private tutoring and bringing creative methods to keep kids and adults engaged in the language.
I look forward to working with you, your kids and the community in enhancing fluency in French.
I am thrilled to be part of the “Aux Trois Pommes” language institute working on enriching the lives of kids and adults in Santa Cruz.
