Education

Baccalaureat (BA) from Institut Notre Dame, Paris, France. Washington Business School, Washington, DC. Raised and educated in France. Fluent French, fluent English, no accent in either language. I return often to Paris to visit my family.

Experience

I teach because of my love to expand my students' minds when they learn either French, English or even creative writing. I am amazed at the progress of my students, especially in French. One of my students received the highest grade for her 2014 IB test in the entire Hillsborough County school system. Those are results I like to see. I lead the pilot program "Conversation Class" for ESOL for the Hillsborough County Literacy Council. This program was so successful that it is now being offered in different libraries in the county. I came to the United States from France when I was 13 years old and didn't speak English. My experience with different languages (French, Spanish and Italian and learning English) has made me appreciate the difficulties of learning a second language. My writing and knowledge of vocabulary/grammar impressed the White House so much that I served on Mrs. Hillary Clinton's personal correspondence staff for 5 years.

Hobbies

I am an avid gardener; I especially like to read books outside in my garden. I have two poodles, one named Charlotte and the other, a tea-cup, called Lacey. Lacey is a rescue. I love to teach and make teaching fun. I prepare each class for each student as I believe people learn differently. Each class if tailored for that specific client. I love to share my knowledge with others and watch as they fulfill their goals and dreams.
