I earned my Masters of Teaching at the University of Illinois in the French Department. I received my Bachelor of Arts as a double major in French and Spanish with a focus on literature. Since graduation, I have traveled extensively to Europe and South America as well as visited Japan and for the last 23 years I have been teaching French and Spanish at an international school in Germany. While I have tutored a broad range of subjects primarily with younger students, I am most passionate about language learning. In my experience helping struggling students clearly understand grammatical concepts and find fun ways to memorize new vocabulary has always brought me great joy. I truly believe that through language we have a gateway to understanding other cultures and people. I believe that having access to communication is absolutely necessary for an improved quality of life, and I try to impart this love of language to my students. In my spare time, I love to scrapbook, cook and most of all travel.
