Je parles plusieurs langues. J'ai passé beaucoup de temps en Europe: la France, Belgique, Italie, l'Allemagne...
I am multi-lingual, multi-cultural Euro-American. I am fluent in French, German, Italian, Latin, Dutch and Sign Language. I attended school in Europe, in local language, and the USA. I resided on both continents and held down jobs on both continents in their native tongues.
I have a passion for the French language and culture and I strongly value a student's desire to learn the language. I am very happy to work with any level from basic conversational grammar and vocabulary through advanced history and literature.
I have traveled extensively throughout all of France and Belgium. My family has a rich genealogical history in both countries and my mother makes an excellent assistant guide for WWII Resistance historical tours. I can serve as a great resource for planning your trip to France around your interests.
In addition to my French language expertise, I have experience teaching Walloon, Flemish, German, Italian, German, Latin and Sign languages.
I enjoy teaching and mentoring as well as have the experience. I am a Cognitive NeuroScientist who has worked with the spectrum of special needs, including the Developmentally Delayed, the Cognitively impaired and declining, all levels of Acquired Brain Injuries, and those left with diminished function after brain tumors, brain cancer or Chemo Brain Syndrome, and with refugees being transitioned from one country to another teaching French, German, Italian and those respective "life skills"
I look forward to meeting and sharing one of my other languages with you!
