My name is Jill, and I am a PA certified high school french teacher with a master's degree in education. I recently started my 6th year of teaching and instruct french I-IV classes. I graduated summa cum laude from Slippery Rock University in 2007 with a bachelor of science in secondary education-french. Last year, I earned a master's of education in curriculum and instruction from Clarion University of Pennsylvania. I have also studied in France three separate times (2006, 2008, and 2010).
I enjoy teaching, and have a lot of experience when it comes to planning lessons, providing effective instruction, and assessing student learning. My overall goal is to make learning french easy and fun for learners of all ages. The majority of my teaching experience has been at the high school level, but I have worked with elementary school students through after school/summer courses, and college students through one on one tutoring.
I believe in differentiating lessons based on students' needs and would provide instruction that helps you meet your goals with the language! Whether you are looking to give your young child a head start with a second language, some extra help with a high school or college French course, or simply wish to brush up on your French for an upcoming trip, I would love to work with you.
