I have a passion for French as well as a passion for teaching. So why not combine the two things I love to do?! After studying French for 6 years in school, I went on to major in it at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. My junior year was spent at the Université de Nice in France. After graduating, I worked in Brussels, Belgium as a Trainee for the European Commission. And my subsequent 8 year employment at an international organization in D.C. allowed me to continue utilizing my French skills. Eventually, I decided to pursue a Master of Education at Marymount University in Virginia and then became a Teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools with certification to teach French.

My approach to teaching is interactive and personalized based on your needs. My priority will always be to get you to where you want to be with your French skills. I am willing to teach all ages in a one-on-one or small group setting, and my hours are flexible. I truly hope you'll allow me to work with you!

A True Professional — We have had many tutors, varying from music, languages, academics etc. But after two lessons, without a doubt Ms. Laurie is by far the best. She is highly professional, and our daughter responds to her style of teaching with enthusiasm. I would highly recommend her. ...
