Hello. I’m Maurice. I am a near-native French speaker who lived in French-speaking country for 15 years before moving to the United States. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in May, 2013. I double majored in French and Business Administration with an emphasis in Computer Information Systems along with a minor in Global Business. I am outgoing, and I love martial arts and reading. As some might know, French is the second-most studied language in the world after English but many believe it is difficult to learn. I am here to help them think otherwise and get them to be excited about learning it by using fun and creative tutoring techniques because there are several methods for learning a language. I have extensive experience translating texts from French to English and from English to French, as well as helping other college students that are majoring in French understand the material. I turned down a tutoring job on campus due to schedule conflicts, but I would be happy to provide recommendations from my professors if needed.

I am also passionate about technology and computers to be more specific. I consider myself very knowledgeable when it comes to “geeky” technology related questions concerning software and hardware and web development. I am proficient in HTML language, CSS and CMS (Wordpress, Ingeniux and Joomla to name a few).I am currently learning PHP and ColdFusion in addition to two programming languages. I love using Adobe Dreamweaver and I know my way around it. I am currently working for a renown financial company in Denver as an Instructional Developer.

I always bring hard-work, discipline and passion to the table and I hope to instill those values in my potential students. For me, learning is a two-way street affair so I am hoping to learn from my students as well and serve as their mentor if needed. I see teaching as a learning process for the instructor and I’m always open-minded. The way I see it, with a good energy, a positive attitude, and the right tutor, anyone can do anything they set their mind to do.
