"I teach French and Spanish at a local High School (French 1 to AP and Spanish 1 and 2) and an Everyday French class for adults in Longmeadow. Previously, I taught ESL at Hampden Charter School of Science and ran an ESL class for adults through the East Longmeadow Library. I have worked with students of all ages from babies to adults and I enjoy all of them and the diversity.

I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree in French and Francophone Studies in 2013. As a graduate teaching assistant, I taught beginning and intermediate-level French language classes and a French film course conducted in English.

Before attending UMASS, I lived in Brittany, France for two years where I taught English to elementary school children aged 6 to 12 years old.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in French Language and Literature at the University of Vermont in 2009. Over those four years, I volunteered in multiple ESL classrooms in Burlington public schools and worked as a French tutor for university students at UVM.

I hold a Professional License to teach Foreign Languages (French and Spanish) Grades 5-12 in Massachusetts and have passed the MTEL in French, Spanish, and ESL. I also hold a 100-hour Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification.

Teaching and learning are my passion, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others and helping students succeed. I specialize in languages including French, English, Spanish, and Polish. As both a language learner and teacher, I understand the challenges students may face when learning a new language and can help them overcome these difficulties. I cater my lessons to the specific needs and wants of the student (i.e. grammar, vocabulary, speaking, reading, writing, etc.). I like to incorporate culture and technology (including websites, music, films, and more) into my lessons and to encourage students to use the target language as much as possible.

I am flexible with both time and travel, and I am willing to tutor around Western Massachusetts. Please note that I have an 8-hour cancellation policy, although I do allow for make-up sessions. I prefer to meet with prospective students and their parents for a free introductory meeting to ensure that we are all on the same page.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your academic or personal goals!" less...
