"Bonjour! My name is Emma and I recently graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Modern Languages and Literatures and International Studies. I have tutored French at the middle school and high school level and taught five semesters as an Apprentice Teacher for Intensive Introductory French classes in college, a job that consistently brightened my day as one of the most rewarding parts of my college career. I have spent a total of five months living in France, traveling independently on scholarship to stay with a host family while in high school and spending a semester studying in complete immersion in Parisian universities in my junior year of college. These experiences were invaluable to me in igniting my interest in French and providing me with a foundation of language and cultural knowledge that I am eager to pass on to my students. I like to encourage students to understand the material as thoroughly as possible and to become comfortable with the language, focusing on communication and connections to the real world, not simply what is found in the textbook. I have a passion for French language, culture, and Francophone literature and greatly enjoy sharing what I have learned with others and watching students progress and overcome challenges!

Additionally, I have been studying, performing, and choreographing classical and contemporary ballet for the past twenty years, starting at a small, highly disciplined ballet studio outside of Philadelphia. I currently perform with three small dance companies based in New York City and have trained with notable teachers in Philadelphia, Paris, and New York. I have performed leading roles in The Nutcracker, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Cinderella, and The Firebird, among others. I am deeply passionate about ballet and am eager to pass that passion on to ballet students of all ages and levels. I encourage my ballet students to enjoy dancing to the fullest while developing proper technique and healthy habits that will allow them to dance safely for the rest of their lives!" less...
