I am a recent graduate from New York University with a Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics and in French, with a minor in American Sign Language. While a student at NYU, I took advantage of America Reads, a fantastic work-study opportunity where I was able to work as a classroom tutor and student teacher in several classrooms around Manhattan. I was also lucky enough to complete a semester abroad in Paris, where I took courses (taught in French) on culture, politics, and literature taught by professors from partnered universities including Sciences Po and the Sorbonne.

My greatest passion is linguistics and language in general. French has been my primary language of study for ten years, including theoretical research in college. I’m extremely interested in modern language, and how to turn mechanical textbook understanding into fluency and contemporary usage. (Sometimes textbooks age poorly in how they teach slang.) My pedagogical style is process-based and goal-oriented. I like students to set a goal (or several), collaborate with me on a process to achieve it, and then put the plan into action with individualized methodology and assessment.

In my spare time, I work on fun Python coding projects, play the odd video game, read (currently working through Discworld), and dote on my pets.
