Overview

Bonjour!

I really enjoy teaching everything about the French and English languages. If you're looking to brush up on your French, looking for an after-school tutor for help in a French course or would like to start learning this lovely language, I am happy to personalize tutoring sessions to your goals!

I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor's of Arts in French, French Literature and Psychology. I have over 8 years of teaching experience. I have studied in Paris and lived in Tours, where I taught English to high school students preparing for the Baccalauréat. In the US, I have taught ESL courses to adults and French I-IV to high school students in the Jacksonville area.

If you're curious to read more about French or language learning in general, listed below are a few articles I have written for the TakeLessons blog. Check them out along with all the wonderful articles written by other TakeLessons tutors!

Great experience. She really took time to discuss with my daughter her strengths/weaknesses so the session could be most beneficial. Very friendly and put my daughter at ease quickly.
