Born in NYC, and raised in the Loire Valley, France, I am blessed with a French-American dual citizenship.

My education was steeped in all things cultural, my life filled with travels, within Europe and to the U.S. I have deep maternal roots in France, and genes from a WWII Ukrainian immigrant family to New York City on the paternal side.

From professional linguists parents, a love for languages was passed on to me, along with an innate capacity for teaching.

The curious idiosyncrasies peculiar to each language are for me a constant source of fascination. What happens in the ‘background’ of a language especially, at the intersection of thought and speech is the key to human communication, an elusive phenomenon toward which I apply a respectful concentration.

As part of my freelance work, I currently work as an online tutor and living language specialist for the method Living Language.

I believe I got very lucky. Very quickly, through his personality and knowledge of French, Sev made me feel very much at ease. He was pleasant, encouraging and patient.
