My experience and education with and in the French language has allowed me to develop a near native command of continental French language.
I was born in US, learned French through the US school systems since the 7th grade, therefore I can readily understand the challenges of the American learner confronted with mastering pronunciations, acceptable standard usage, grammar, and idiomatic contemporary French, spoken and written.
I am known to have nearly undetectable accent when speaking French.
I have spent extensive vacation time in France and French-speaking Canada; I lived for 3 months with a non-English speaking family outside of Paris.
I have extensive experience teaching in noncredit as well adult education language programs in French in Norwich, CT and Mansfield, CT over the years.
I earned a BS in French language and literature and Secondary Education from Boston University, Boston, MA.
I accomplished my very successful student teaching practicum experience at the inner city Cambridge High and Latin/Ringe Tech High School in Cambridge, MA
I was formerly certified for secondary education teaching in MA, my career path veered into technology areas.
While I was searching for teaching opportunities at the secondary level I was awarded a three year lectureship in Beginning French at Boston University.
