Bonjour!

My name is Megan, and I am currently earning my Master's of Foreign Language from the University of Memphis. Part of my work is tutoring and teaching French to university students. I have my Bachelor's degree in both French and Japanese language studies and have been learning about cultural aspects (dance, cuisine, festivals, religion, and customs) since 2007.

Learning a language should be fun and exciting! I don't believe in boring repetition and continuous memorization. I like games, practicing in conversation, and developing skills that help you in real life situations.

I use quizzes every session to assess where my student falls in their learning process. These are not to discourage you but to challenge you to learn more. I always practice conversation, and I always try to provide multiple explanations of how to use grammar.

I've worked with all ages, from 4-45 years old. I have helped middle school students move forward in their Japanese language, and they are now excelling in their classes. I work hard, but I do expect you to put in effort, too.

I have minored in photography and have had years of experience in and out of a portrait studio. If you want to learn, I want to teach!

Hope to meet you soon!
