Experienced, retired, enthusiastic French teacher/professor for over 4 decades across 3 states

Methodology

I use a student-centered approach blended with humor in my classes. This has won me a few teaching awards(see resume). A successful class is one that is interactive and that uplifts the learning spirit of a learner, thus eliminating boredom and anxiety. Besides, my pedagogical approach is wholistic.

Background

As a language teacher, I taught French for several years to hundreds of students from middle school through college. I have a Ph.D in Linguistics with a minor in French and Francophone studies. I have 2 Masters degrees, one in languages (French)and Literature and the other in Linguistics. I also have taught at 3 different universities. I published, with the help of the U.S. Dept. of Education and UT Austin, a Yoruba language grammar text
