I am an avid academic who seeks to share my passion for learning with motivated students. I graduated from the University of Denver in 2013 with a dual degree in Political Science and French, which reflects the areas I'm passionate about teaching: Political Science-namely American history or government, civics, etc.; and French-- I started in French I as a college freshman and worked myself all the way up to subjects like 19th century French literature, World War II French poetry, and more.
As a junior in college, I spent six months in France advancing my skills in the language. I surpassed my wildest expectations, becoming more fluent that I ever thought possible. While there, I taught English to French adults at a local community college, at both beginner and intermediate levels. I also taught English to two young French boys. I really enjoyed both experiences, as it taught me a lot about myself as an American and an English speaker.
Since returning to the States and graduating, my only tutoring experience has been helping friends who were traveling to France to learn some basic French. I realized that I have an inexplicable passion for the language and the culture, and I wanted to share that passion with others. Since then, it's become my favorite thing to teach, study, talk about, etc.
When I'm not tutoring students, I am pursuing a graduate degree in Public Policy at DU, fervently following professional sports, especially football and baseball, and following politics in DC and Colorado. I enjoy a well-made movie, a thought-provoking book, going out to dinner with my friends, and dreaming about when I will be able to return to France.
