I am a graduate of University of Wisconsin Madison (UW) with a bachelor degree in Human Development and Family Studies. I speak and write French fluently, I have learned French since I was 7 years old. I was born and raised in Senegal and have been living in the United States for 17 years. I always been passionate about learning and teaching languages, I have been a French tutor for many years for my own daughters and their friends at Middle and High schools, for my friends and their families and for my coworkers.
I have no doubt that knowing foreign languages is full of benefits, and I have been advocating that learning a second language should be one of the most important goals to achieve by students. Being a multilingual (speaking English, French and some Spanish), I have the opportunity to connect with people of different countries and culture, and to make great friends around the world. Our perception to others is more likely to change when we can understand and speak their languages. Learning foreign languages will enable us to understand and appreciate the rich and complex world we live in. With globalization in full swing, we need to educate global leaders, and foreign languages must be an important part of that endeavor. Remember that we gain also a lot of cognitive skills by learning a second language. Recent scientific research found that learning foreign languages makes students smarter, increase their mental focus and improve and reading and writing skills
I am very passionate about tutoring and believe that education is what truly makes difference in lives people. Learning a new language is not a waste of time as some people may think. Knowing a new language opens a lot of opportunities and prepares us to become global citizens. To those of you who will choose me as your tutor, you will have a reliable teacher you can count on. I am very knowledgeable of the French grammar, verbs conjugation and can teach all the levels (beginners, intermediate and advanced). I will teach you with the methods that best fit your needs. I will work with you to set realistic goals that will meet your best interests. Upon completion of the courses I will teach you, you should gain a lot of writing, reading, listening and communications skills. Good tutors always inspire and motivate students to shrive for greatness, and I am one of them. I am looking forward to meet you.
