I love teaching as well as tutoring because it gives me the opportunity to share my passion for learning and transmitting knowledge. I’m currently enrolled in a teacher certification program to teach French K-12, in order to pursue my dream of having an everyday life purpose. I’m not a native speaker, but French is the language in which I earned my Master's degree in Agriculture and worked five years in the insurance field. I would like to share with my students my love of French and make them master the means of exploring the romance of the French language and culture.
