I am a professional harpist and musicologist with a passion for speaking and teaching French! I grew up bilingual, speaking French with my father and English with my mother. I spent a lot of time in France as a child, learning about French customs and traditions from my family. I have a unique perspective on all things France, and I am excited to share them with you!
In addition to speaking at home, I took French classes (including AP French) in public school, so I have a solid background in grammar, writing, and reading comprehension. I am very familiar with the typical school curriculum so I will be able to help students who are seeking after school tutoring in conjunction with their classes.
I have experience teaching children age 4 and up, and a lot of experience working with middle and high school students. I was a tutor in high school and in university in the subjects of French and Music Theory.
Students can expect a tailored approach that fits their goals for French speaking. Whether you are hoping to become a better conversationalist or working on grammar skills, I will make sure that our sessions emphasize the appropriate subjects.
For my day job, I am currently a Fulbright Scholar in Stockholm where I research historical musical instruments. I have a passion for languages, and I speak German and a bit of Swedish as well. I look forward to working with you and helping you speak French! A bientôt!
I research and restore harps from the 18th century at a museum in Sweden. By working with these harps I learn about the cultural practices in music in Western Europe and how it relates to history on a global scale. In my restoration practices I aim to conserve the instruments for future generations to enjoy.+ Read More

It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.
Today we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
We're the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
