I am a graduate from Grand Valley State University, where I received my Bachelor's of Arts in French Language and Culture with a minor in Anthropology. My chosen emphasis was in literature with a focus in the Medieval and Renaissance periods, however, my personal favorite would have to be the 17th and 18th centuries. For six months after graduation, I traveled to 25 major cities across the country setting up a distracted driving simulator to promote awareness about texting and driving. In high school and college I participated in freshman acclimation programs to assist students through the transition into the next phase on their educational journey. I believe that with education and the understanding of other cultures, a bright and caring mind will form. While I tutor mainly French, I am currently working towards obtaining my third language. A handful of my personal interests are cooking, hiking, reading and the occasional fire performance.
