My first master's degree is in French language and literature. I spent a large amount of my childhood and youth living in rural southern France and going to school there with typical southern French children, and not only love the language but the culture as well. My second master's degree is in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and has an education specialization. My current master's program is in Spanish language and literature with a specialization in linguistics. I have taught French at the university level for two years, ESL in a professional school for a year to students from all over the world ages 13-88, and have tutored Spanish, French, professional writing (with MLA and APA citation), and basic study skills such as time management and organization. I love teaching and I believe that you need to be having fun learning or else the information you are absorbing will have no purpose in the future. I create lessons involving zombie attacks, trivia games, and cultural lessons that all tie to what needs to be learned. As a life-long academic, I believe that learning, though sometimes difficult, is one of the best pleasures in life. I believe frustration and confusion are tools in teaching and not mere hurdles to get over. I love to do art and D.I.Y. projects in my free time as well as read, read, and read. I hope that you will allow me to help you reach your goals and have a little fun in the process.
