I was born to be an educator. My Tennessee father went to live in Colombia where he met my mother. He was a Spanish professor. My mother is also a Spanish teacher. My rebellion was studying French. So now I am fully trilingual.
I received my PhD in Comparative Literature and have a degree in Medieval Studies from The University of Paris-La Sorbonne. I've taught teens in France, college students in the U.S., and professionals from Latin America.
I am here to help those working on writing their dissertation, thesis, or essays.
I am available to tutor students of Literature or Medieval Studies.
I am also accepting students who are learning English, French, or Spanish.
We all have different reasons for wanting (or needing) to learn a different language or to get a degree. Knowing the student's motivation is the key to how I approach our work together. The student's life goals are always at the root of how I approach the presentation and engagement with material. In essence, I am a mentor or a coach who seeks to push the learner towards their LIFE goals by ensuring they master the educational and/or personal benchmarks that brought them to me.
