"I earned my B.A. in French from Trinity College in Hartford, CT in 2008. I'm on a mission to improve students' writing, whether it be in English or in French, a college essay or a master's thesis. At Northwestern University I've taught Introduction to Fiction, Classics & Cinema, a first-year seminar on Theatre & Technology, and a survey of theatre history from 1660-1921. All of my classes are writing intensive, meaning that I meet with every student individually to go over thesis statements, outlines, and rough drafts and identify each student's writing habits (good and bad)." ...

"At the University of Illinois, I took and easily aced all of the highest-level grammar and oral French courses that the French Department had to offer to undergrads. Additionally, I was selected to participate in a French studies program in French Canada in 2009. Just a few months ago, I returned to the US from a nearly year-long teaching position at a high school near Dijon, France. I taught French high school students spoken English language and American and British culture. Students were able to make very marked gains in their command of spoken English because of my ability to accommodate a variety of learning styles and make learning ...

"Since graduation, I have taught English in France, worked with adults learning English as a Second Language, and tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in a wide variety of subjects, including: math, science, reading, English, and ACT/SAT test preparation. I am a firm believer in problem-based learning, and encourage students to ask questions and think for themselves. Although I will not provide answers or a quick and simple fix, I will provide students with guidance and encouragement as they work through problems and learn to apply familiar concepts to unfamiliar situations.

"I'm also certified fluent in both French and Spanish and spent last semester in Paris, France. I'm a fun, engaging teacher with a dynamic personal energy, and one of my greatest strengths is generating enthusiasm in even the most reluctant students. I don't see why grammar lessons can't be games and punctuation worksheets can't make you laugh! I understand how discouraging it can be to struggle with reading or writing at any age, and my personal objective is to give students the tools they need to feel confident and proud of their work. In my spare time, I love reading, running, and spending time with my family.." ...

"The basic structure of the French language is taught later than it needs to be. I also learned that many of the trickier concepts are not always explained as clearly as they need to be for students, who often have to work on all of these concepts themselves. Since then, I've tried to find an easy and concise way of explaining patterns and rules in French that make sense. In knowing that learning a language can be very difficult and frustrating when one is struggling with it, I also remain patient with my students, because I know they are having enough difficulties. I love seeing students finally understand something they thought was hard ...
