About Brittanye

I have a passion for the French language that has allowed me to travel and teach internationally. I believe language learning early provides a strong foundation from which I have personally benefited. My experience includes teaching Vacation Bible School for students ages two to five for four years and teaching swimming at the YMCA for the past six years to children ages two to 12. I was able to witness the growth of students through both opportunities which has been very fulfilling.

I tutored classmates while in college and have worked with English language learners for the past two years: first in southern Vietnam and then in western France. Through these experiences I have become more flexible and learned effective communication skills, particularly cross-cultural.

As a non-native speaker, fluent in French, I am well aware of difficulties one may have in learning French. Likewise, I have learned difficulties one may face in English language acquisition for any level. While my most recent experiences are in working with French and English, I am certified to tutor in other areas as well. I have exhibited strong academic performance both in graduating Cum Laude from a private high school and Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa from college.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.

I look forward to helping you in your learning process!

Helpful, patient, and resourceful

Brittanye asked relevant questions to tie learning French into my motivations, probed my language abilities and reviewed grammatical structures where they were weak, provided me with additional resources to utilize between tutoring sessions, and created a to-do list for me to complete prior to our next session. Everything I had hoped! Thank you Brittanye!
