Bonjour! I am passionate about French and love sharing it with others! I fell in love with the language in high school after listening to the melodious violins and piano of Yann Tiersen and have been on the quest to learn as much of the language and culture ever since. I studied and lived abroad in France for 2 years and earned my BA and later MA in French and Francophone Studies from the University of Kentucky. I have formally taught in university, middle school, and high school classrooms for the last 8 years. Speaking a foreign language opens up an entirely new world to explore abound with endless opportunities and I relish the chance to help you along your journey. As a teacher, I focus on real-world, practical applications to the language and conversation with attention given to all elements of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I base my methodology on the Communicative Language Teaching Approach and the guidelines of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I take a genuine interest in the specific needs of my students and strive to meet their needs and goals as a team. bientt!
