As a young, beret-wearing girl in Chicago, I always knew I was bound for France one day. Fast forward a few decades, after living in Prague studying Czech and fine arts, after living in Panama as a language and art teacher and writing for an eco-tourism journal, I soon found my way to Marseilles, France teaching for 8+ years while exploring the dynamic and vivid intricacies of the Mediterranean culture.
I have taught in public and private schools, colleges and universities, community centers and language centers, in living rooms and in web classrooms. Wherever we are, I am dedicated to tailoring the class to your specific needs, desires and of course who you are! As an attentive and adapative instructor, I am determined to expanding the experience of learning beyond those traumatic memories of high school French class and helping you feel comfortable as a communicator. The student-teacher exchange is a professional one, but it sure doesn't need to be boring or stressful! Language is a simply an aspect of culture, so let's explore the ins and outs. Who knows, I might even share my favorite quiche recipe!
