I love teaching both English and French. I have taught English and ESL for the last ten years, to students as young as 4 and as old as your great-grandmother. I especially enjoy kids between 3rd and 8th grade, and find adult students also very interesting. Experienced in grammar, reading comprehension, standardized testing, creative writing, and essay writing.

I love the French language and French culture. I lived in France for four years as a nanny and studied French lit and language at the Sorbonne (Paris IV). In 2003 I earned a secondary-level World Languages teaching license from the state of Colorado. My accent is very good and I speak fluently. Would love to share my enthusiasm for the beauty of French with you!
