French is my first language. My studies in high school were in French as well as in college where my concentration was in French education. My master's degree is in higher education administration, which gives me a better understanding of student psychology and deeper knowledge of how administration is addressed in academia. I am alum of Florida International University where I obtained my BA and MS. In addition, I took classes in French at the graduate levels at FIU as a non-degree seeking in order to meet the requirements needed for accreditation at certain institutions of higher education.

I taught French at different non-credit levels at Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus. I am an adjunct professor at Florida International University, where I teach French at beginning and intermediate levels. My tutoring experience would be with my three children, who did their classes in English and in French in a Magnet International School.

I aim that my students achieve what researchers call communicative competence in the language, which is the fundamental knowledge about the language. Communicative competence has to do with grammatical competence; sociolinguistic competence, discourse competence, strategic competence.

I teach in an atmosphere of mutual respect; I make the students feel comfortable in learning. My objective is for them to be excited in learning the language and for them to be engaged – not ashamed of making mistakes, and participating as much as possible in improving their learning skills. Getting to know the students is vital, as each learner is different in processing information.

I am confident that my knowledge and experience in teaching French qualifies me to be an excellent tutor. I believe that instructors must always reflect on their teaching methods in order to be more attentive to the students input, and always be prepared to give feedback.
