About Josepha

I am currently in the Master in Teaching secondary education at Western Washington University, planning to graduate and be certified by Winter 2018.

I graduated from WWU in 2015 with a double major in French and English with a Creative Writing emphasis, after which I went to Rouen, France to teach English to high school and post-secondary students for the 2015-2016 academic year. I worked in Elbeuf, a school within the Académie de Rouen, at the Lycée André Maurois.

I have tutoring experience in subjects ranging from elementary reading and writing in English, teaching a local adult to speak conversational French, and tutoring peers in high school in algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus.

I am most equipped currently to tutor in French or English. What I love about tutoring and teaching language is introducing and enriching perceptions of different cultures around the world. Reading, writing, listening, and speaking languages for me are fun and I want to share my enthusiasm with people who want to increase cognitive functioning through multilingualism, and explore other cultures with an open mind.

I have lived in Bellingham for five years now and embrace opportunities to get more involved in the community I love, meeting new people and sharing skills.

I have studied French since the age of 12, beginning with private lessons in junior high, taking French in high school for all 4 years, and then majoring in the language as an undergrad. I went on to experience an immersion setting when I lived in France for a year, teaching English to students, which improved my own fluency in the language immensely. I am now training to teach French to high schoolers.

English literature and creative writing were my first true love. I took AP English courses in high school, so I am keenly aware of the demands of preparing for these tests and would be able to help students. I majored in English with a creative writing emphasis during my undergraduate experience at Western, taking courses in literature, dramatic writing, poetry, and technical writing.
