About Debbie


Bio

I am a retired certified French teacher and was chosen as Tennessee Foreign Language Teacher of the Year in 2000 by the Tennessee Foreign Language Teaching Association. I spent my entire career in public schools coaxing sometimes reluctant students to learn French. I can help you make sense out of the French language. I currently teach private lessons and am quite experienced with one-on-one interaction. Need quick results? I can help.

Patient and very intuitive

She took the time to understand exactly what I wanted to achieve and made me feel very comfortable with my skills level. She has experience in French culture as well as the language. In fact, I learned a lot more than just language. Very fun!
