About Elizabeth

Bonjour!

My name is Elizabeth, and I teach French at Parcells Middle School in Grosse Pointe Woods. I graduated from Michigan State University two years ago, spent a year in Normandy teaching English to French high schoolers, and I just completed my year-long internship at Troy High School. Though I thoroughly enjoy teaching large groups of high school students, tutoring allows me to share my passion for language and culture in a more intimate setting, and I love working with people who are as curious about the world as I am!

I spent several years volunteering as an English tutor at MSU, and have always enjoyed working with young adults as well as actual adults. In addition to tutoring French and English, I also love to read, play soccer, and travel. Of all the places I have visited, I most enjoyed my time in Budapest, Hungary.

I am an outstanding French teacher because of the experiences I have had abroad and here in the U.S. learning about French language and culture. Teaching French is a source of great enjoyment for me, and my passion enables me to make strong connections with my students.

My past experiences working with adults and high school students learning English as a foreign language have been incredibly rewarding, and I have learned so much from my TOEFL students! As someone who has lived abroad before, I understand what it means to be living in a new place with a new language and I do my best to not only be a great tutor but also a "cultural ambassador," or who helps people acclimate to life in the U.S.

Please don't hesitate to call or send me a message if you have any questions! Your first meeting with me will be free, as I would just want to meet with you to talk about your goals and experiences to see if we would be a good fit for one another. I look forward to hearing from you!
