Bonjour / Aloha!
As a native Hawaiian with French-Polynesian origins, I have spoken and studied French since childhood. After living and studying in France during high school, I continued my language studies in college... graduating with a 3.98 GPA, a German minor, and nearly enough credits for a second Bachelor's degree - in Music!
After obtaining my TEFL (Teacher of English as a Foreign Language) certification in 2005 in Rome, Italy, I taught advanced-level French and ESL at a Seattle-area high school. I have worked in French-speaking positions at local companies such Amazon and Big Fish Games, and even worked at a French-immersion preschool, so I am great with the little ones!
Besides language, my greatest passion in life is music. I perform jazz, cabaret and classical music throughout the Seattle area - in a variety of languages! - and run a successful voice studio from my Magnolia home. As much as I love my work as a vocal coach, I am also interested in tutoring other subjects in my spare time, to kids and adults of all ages.
Hope to hear from you soon ... à très bientôt ...
