My teaching method is highly individualized. I will meet you where you are and together we will arrive where you want to go. I approach each lesson with a plan that is engaging, varied, and targeted, with a goal of providing successive lessons that allow a student to reach tangible, recordable goals. I am a huge proponent of using varied learning techniques and aligning the learning style with the students' needs. I hope that my students not only learn the subject at hand, but I hope to also teach learning techniques that my students can utilize in other aspects of their lives.
With a Bachelors degree in French from the University of Tennessee, I am passionate about French language and culture and love teaching others about this vast and fascinating subject. I have lived and worked in diverse parts of "la Francophonie," including Provence, the Loire Valley, and Martinique, and I have worked extensively with French-Canadian clients. I look forward to teaching you anything and everything French!
