I tutor to help my students succeed, and through my experiences as a language learner and teacher, I understand the methods, practices, and commitments needed for success.

My interest in language opened up opportunities abroad, and for the past two years, I've taught ESL in Martinique and France, working in four different elementary schools with over 500 students.

I tutor to help my students succeed, and through my experiences as a language learner and teacher, I understand the methods, practices, and commitments needed for success. At the University of Kansas, I studied English, French, and Wolof. My interest in language opened up opportunities abroad, and for the past two years, I've taught ESL in Martinique and France, working in four different elementary schools with over 500 students. While teaching in France, I also tutored mostly middle school students in English, and I trained my French. I currently have a B2 in French.

I've specialised in working with school-aged students, but I also enjoy working with adults. In my courses, both French and English, I lesson plan and provide materials to ensure a stimulating and productive tutoring session. With my students, I work on grammar, conversation skills, phonetics, reading, writing, and listening. I'm also equipped to help with test preparation. I enjoy working hard, learning, and sharing my knowledge with others. I look forward to working together!

I majored in English Literature and Rhetoric at the University of Kansas, where I received departmental honors and an Outstanding Senior award. Studying English, I learned the structure and flow of the language as well as required an acute attention to detail, a trait necessary when learning and teaching language. I have two years of ESL teaching experience and training having worked for France Education International as an elementary level English teacher. A language learner and lover myself, I understand the process of learning a language, and I love to share my enthusiasm for my mother tongue with others.

I have studied French for 10 years and lived in a French speaking spaces, Senegal, Martinique, and France, for 3 years. During these years, I've loved and hated French, struggled with its vowel sounds, enjoyed its poetic prose, mumbled through conversations, and presented my opinion loud and clear. I did what it took to learn the language by heart. Through my exp
