I am a bilingual (English-French) American with an international background and years of experience in education and psychology. Mastering the written word was my first academic love, from earning a creative writing award in high school to writing an honor's thesis at Wellesley College. With a B.A. in psychology, I first worked in the field of law, where my work included correcting documents written by non-native speaking lawyers. I perfected my French living in Belgium for almost 11 years, where I obtained a master's in educational psychology.
I have worked in private practice completing educational assessments for children dealing with learning difficulties. This required producing complex written reports analyzing the problems at hand and presenting these along with solutions in clear and concise summaries. I also worked as an English teacher for Berlitz while living abroad, so I have received special training in how to teach foreign languages.
I began learning French in high school, so I understand how difficult this can be for students. Having obtained a near-native level of French and an almost perfect French accent after living abroad and marrying a Belgian, I am uniquely qualified to help other Americans master this beautiful language that I now enjoy speaking with my family every day.
