Hi! I am French American , born and raised near Paris and with a bachelor's degree from Brown University. I have been tutoring and teaching French for a while now and hope to continue sharing my love for the French language and culture with students for many more years to come! I love traveling, learning, and teaching.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I aim to make sure the student feels confident in using the language in whatever setting comes up. When speaking a foreign language - practice and confidence are key!
How would you help a student stay motivated?
It is easy to feel discouraged, especially with a language like French, where native speakers tend to speak so fast and where grammar and pronunciation can become overwhelming. Practice makes perfect! I always try to point out a student's strong points and remind them of the progress they are making. If everything starts seeming too challenging, that means you've managed to reach a higher level. Bravo!
