About Linda


Bio

I am the daughter and granddaughter of French immigrants from Quebec, Canada. I grew up hearing spoken French but my own learning of French did not begin until I was in high school. That was followed by university classes, but even that was not enough for me. I moved to France in 1989 and enrolled in the Alliance Francaise to learn French the immersion way. I spent 3 years in France and was fluent in the language upon my return to the US.

I am the daughter and granddaughter of French immigrants from Quebec, Canada. I grew up hearing spoken French but my own learning of French did not begin until I was in high school. That was followed by university classes, but even that was not enough for me. I moved to France in 1989 and enrolled in the Alliance Francaise to learn French the immersion way. I spent 3 years in France and was fluent in the language upon my return to the US.

In the US, I worked for French-owned companies in New York, to wit: Wildenstein & Co, an art gallery considered the wealthiest in the world; FIMAT, the investment arm of Societe Generale, the 2nd largest bank in France; Gibney, Anthony, Flaherty, LLP, a law firm whose clients were exclusively French-owned companies (Cartier, L'Oréal). All this to say that my knowledge and use of French did not get left behind once I returned to the US.

I love the French language as it is a part of my heritage. I have spent my entire adult life either learning or using this language, even though it is neither my everyday-spoken language nor my native language. I taught French language at the Community College level, as well as through a language school, in Detroit, Michigan.

I am retired and therefore available to teach / tutor French on your schedule!
