Bonjour and Hallo!

My name is Emily. I currently work as a high school French teacher. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a French major and a German minor. I have attended uni in Berlin, Germany and Lyon, France and taught in an elementary school in Metz, France.

My past professional experience includes:

-teaching students aged 3-6 in a French immersion Montessori preschool
-teaching English in France to elementary students aged 6-11
-working at the Boston Goethe Institut
-patent translation in both languages
-freelance French translation.

I can improve adults' fluency with phonetics or grammar lessons, or teach kids immersion-style through songs and games. Don't hesitate to contact me for more information! I am excited to meet you.

Corporate Training:


I have been studying French since 1999 and majored in French Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where I won the highest departmental award as a senior. Most recently, I spent the academic year of 2010-2011 teaching English in France-about an hour east of Paris. I also spent an academic semester in Lyon in 2008. I have traveled extensively around France and love speaking the language.


I began studying German independently after a month-long trip to Germany in 2005. I started coursework at the University of Pennsylvania in 2006, and subsequently won three departmental awards for excellence in Germanic studies. In 2007, I spent 6 weeks studying German intensively in a summer program in Berlin. I also lived and studied in Berlin for 5 months in 2009. I am passionate about the language and can also speak to Germany-a wonderful place to visit!
