I am a French/American who grew up in Thailand. I went from the French School, to the English system accredited by Oxford in the International Baccalaureate and graduated from the American International School. I have gone from being in ESL to graduating with a B.A. in English with a French Minor. I have traveled to over 43 countries and lived in 6. I have been exposed and absorbed to over 56 nationalities, multi-races and cultures. I grew up loving to learn and share it with others. I believe that you can learn something new every day and that an open-mind is the greatest gift to have. I have done a lot of community service and volunteered with orphanages. I also volunteered with the French Red Cross division during the Tsunami in Thailand to help French families identify the bodies of their loved ones and clear up the debris that affected Thailand's beautiful but tragic-stricken beaches.

French is a very hard language. As a French native and who went to a French school for 12 years I know how tedious and confusing the language can be. I believe in bringing liveliness to the learning process. Using movies, music and culture is so important. I worked for Rosetta Stone and saw how interaction and humor can help so much and having a student understand and retain is so rewarding. I have worked with children whom I gave projects to on their favorite subjects, hobbies, passions or sports and saw them come alive and I truly feel that it is the best way to teach a language that has so many rules, exceptions and grammar which anyone would find tedious.

Since I started in ESL, learning English went from being a necessity to a true passion of mine. I fell in love with the language. Literature was everything. I became an expert in Shakespeare, Chaucer, Canterbury Tales and all mythology. I adored it because breaking down poetry, historical references, sexism of the ages was thrilling as well as challenging. I also received nothing but A's during my Bachelor requirements. I also worked in the film industry proof reading scripts and adding notes for any novel sent our way.

If you enjoy these subjects as much as I do, I know that we will have fun while creating the best experience in helping you succeed. If these subjects have always seemed daunting or forced on you as an almost cruel punishment...please don't despair. Let's see if we can help you get through it and maybe even change your outlook. You might even find a new level of encouragement and love for the subjects themselves. But it would all be done with the hope that you look forward to your next lesson and keep you coming back!
