I just recently returned from working in France for 7 months as an English teacher at the Lycée du Golfe de St. Tropez and the Collège Victor Hugo à Gassin. While there, I worked with 9th through 11th graders on improving their English oral expression, listening comprehension and written communication. In teaching my students I was able to incorporate both my native English capabilities as well as my French fluency in order to help students ameliorate their skills. In addition to my teaching job, I tutored individuals privately in my community with various English capabilities.
I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Anthropology of Global Health and the Environment and in French. During my senior year of college I worked as the Department of Romance Languages and Literature's French tutor. Throughout this experience I worked one-on-one with college students taking French 1 and 2 to help them improve their writing skills, comprehension abilities and accent/pronunciation.
I absolutely love speaking French and what I love most about tutoring in French is to be able to watch students improve and develop a similar passion for the language that I have. As a native English speaker who has developed French fluency, I understand firsthand what makes the language challenging and find that this experience allows me to effectively aid students. I always tailor my tutoring to a student's interests and needs and strive to keep French learning fun and exciting.
Outside of tutoring, I love dancing, traveling and going to the beach!
