With a bachelor's degree in French literature, a master's degree in French studies, and a high school teaching credential in French, I have had the opportunity to explore French language, literature, history, and culture in great depth.

My study abroad experience in Toulouse, a lively city in the South of France, as well as living for a year in Paris, the city of light, have helped me to become fluent in French and have taught me much about the different regions of France and the cultures of the people who live in each area.

For the past five years, I have taught people of all ages, from high school students to retirees and focused on subjects ranging from basic conversation to advanced writing. I prefer to balance workbooks and written exercises with subject-based conversations, short French films, games, and music. I believe that engaging in activities we like is the best way to learn a new language.

I truly enjoy sharing my passion for French language and culture, and I look forward to sharing it with you as well.

Very responsive, professional, ideal background — I recommend Jessica. She was very responsive in the early phases of our connecting, which I greatly appreciated. She has a professional demeanor. She has good experience teaching students and impressive and appropriate credentials. She was familiar with my daughter's textbook. I would have continued with Jessica for a long while; however, my daughter determined she had caught up with the class. ...
