Bonjour ! I am passionate about being of service to others and teaching the French language and culture. It is also my passion to share my experience growing up immersed in the culture of France, West Africa, and Switzerland. I grew up in a multicultural, bilingual environment.
From a very early age, I have enjoyed traveling to various countries and continents and meeting people of diverse backgrounds.
I have lived in Paris and the French-speaking part of Switzerland for over 20 years. I studied French language and literature at the University of Kansas, where I earned a BA in the 1990s.
In my free time, I enjoy playing with my nieces and nephews, whose ages range from three to sixteen and whose languages range from Arabic, Russian, French, German, and English.
My most substantial assets are my ability to actively listen in a non-judgmental way and build trusting and open relationships with others.
