Bonjour!

My name is Christina and I am thrilled to share my passion of French language and culture with you! A recent graduate from Colgate University with a bachelor's in French Language and Litterature with Honors, I have moved to Lyon, France to begin my adult life. I am currently studying International Comparative Education (master's) from the Université de Bordeaux and working as a high school English Language Assistant in Lyon. I previously worked in France as a language assistant in Dijon, France (yes, like the mustard) when I studied abroad during my undergraduate studies.

I have several experiences teaching. Most relevantly, I was a University French Tutor and Program Coordinator of the Foreign Language Program at Colgate University where I designed curriculums, activities, lessons and materials to teach French langauge and culture to local elementary students.

I firmly believe in inclusive education and strive to indiviudally tailor my lessons to the level, interest, goals and needs of each student. To keep things interesting for you and for me, I plan interactive an fun exercises that naturally facilitate use of French. This is a team effort and together we will find the most effective way for YOU to learn French.

Because I live in France, it may appear that my availability is limited; however, I am flexibile and am happy to work with you to find a time that is convenient for both of us. Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions!

À bientôt!

About Christina T.

Bonjour!

My name is Christina and I am thrilled to share my passion of foreign language and culture with you! A recent graduate of Colgate University with a BA in French Langauge and Literature and Educational Studies, I have now moved to Lyon, France to combine my two passions of French and Education to work as a high school English Teaching Assistant at Lycée Professionel Barthélemy Thimonnier. Two years ago, I interned as a high school English assistant in Dijon, France (yes, like the mustard) when I studied abroad for my undergraduate studies. It was here that I realized I wanted to dedicate my life to teaching languages.

I firmly believe in inclusive education and strive to individually tailor each lesson to the level, interests, goals and needs of each student. To make lessons interesting for both you and for me, I plan interactive, relevant and fun exercises that naturally facilite using the target language. This is a team effort and we will work together to find the most effective way for YOU to learn French.

My availabilty reflects the time difference between the USA and France, so if it seems limited and unmanageable, don't panic! Feel free to reach out so we can find a time that is convenient for both of us.

Lastly, don't hesitate to reach out with questions! I am here to help you decide if my teaching style is a good fit for your learning needs and want you to feel comfortable with your decision!

À bientôt! (See you soon!)
