I graduated from Washington & Jefferson College with a Bachelor of Arts in both International Studies and French, with focuses on East Asian and European Studies. During my time at W&J, I had many extraordinary study abroad opportunities that supplied me with exceptional interpersonal skills with people from around the world. Additionally, these experiences further increased my interest in languages and traveling. After graduating, I decided that I wanted to continue exploring the world, so I studied to receive my TEFL certification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) from ICAL TEFL Online. Having spent two years now teaching English in both Hong Kong (Lingnan University) and France (Lycee Andre Argouges), I am ready to bring my tutoring abilities back to the States, and help others with both the French language and culture. My love for French stemmed from studying it in school, and since then it had always been my dream to live there and experience life in France; I hope I can share the same excitement for the language to future students.
Thanks to teaching various groups of students, I've learned how to find different means to teach them in a way that they would understand. I try my hardest to make my lessons as dynamic and helpful as possible, because I find it extremely important for students to find the subject interesting, that way it will increase their desire to learn.
Outside of tutoring, I am currently working on my Masters to hopefully work in the realm of global public health.
