French Tutor?

As I've mentioned, my daughter is working toward an International Baccalaureate degree, which means taking college-level classes and then also doing well on a standardized test that is graded somewhere else (i.e. most likely out of the country). She apparently got the short end of the stick in terms of getting the least competent French teacher at her school, and has asked if we can find her a tutor. We're in Milwaukee, and the kid visits family in Chicago frequently on weekends. Does anyone in either area have any recommendations?

Also, with me still laid off, and her Dad selling produce in a grocery store (though he is a fabulous cook), someone open to taking all or part of their pay in some kind of trade or barter would be especially helpful. Oh--and my daughter is very good with kids and dogs; one possible barter item would be childcare or dog/cat-sitting. She's done both.

Hmm...I suppose something like this could even be set up via skype...

I'm sure she knows about stuff like RFI. Hopefully her Dad or I will find someone local, either through someone on my friends' list (though some of the locals read LJ infrequently) or through other local contacts.

But networking means putting the word out in lots of ways, because you don't know who has the information you need.

Je parle un peu... But not enough to be helpful.

College of Lake County is on her way to Chicago and has French tutors. I'm guessing UW Milwaukee will as well. I'd start by calling the UWM Writing Center- they're the most likely place to have a list of language tutors.
