I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison with a Bachelor of Arts in French, Arabic, and African Literature. While at university I studied abroad twice - attending Aix-Marseille University for six months and attending the Institut de Touraine French Language Program for three months. After graduating I worked as a substitute teacher - my first three months I taught any and every subject from the elementary through high school level. Then I transitioned to teaching high school Chemistry and Biology for four months as the full time teacher. I often hosted after school tutoring at my high school, not just for the science homework I assigned but for any questions about any subject. I left substitute teaching to become a flight attendant, where I use my French language skills daily. However I dearly miss teaching - I love to see the spark of understanding when the student grasps the concept or solves the problem. I enjoy teaching French and English language skills to others, and I am particularly good at making literature of both languages more accessible and entertaining. My teaching philosophy is one of evolution and adaptation. Every person learns in a different way, and I aim to find the best method of learning for each student. A tailored learning experience will ensure that the knowledge will not only stick long enough for a test, but be rooted in place and accessible for future problems. In my spare time I like to play video games, read, write my novel, and travel the world.
