As a college French language instructor, I enjoy stimulating my students' creativity and engagement with the French language. But what I find even more exciting is sharing this passion on the Internet with thousands of learners from around the world -- with full access, and no barriers!

My CV :(I promise I will keep it short :-))

University of Minnesota French instructor (for 7+ years)

I teach French courses on a daily basis to young college students, from beginner to advanced levels.

Alliance Fran├žaise (2 years)

I taught advanced French conversation classes to adults, created workshops on subjects such as the Francophonie for dozens of young high school students, and more.

French language Instructor for younger kids (for 2+ years)

You can say that my teaching skills are very broad and multifaceted. Taught children as young a six-month old. Never felt so enthused in that role and to have played such a big role in their development.

Legal Assistant (Less 1 year)

Obtained an Associate in Paralegal Studies and went on to work briefly for a NY law office (owned by my Criminal Law professor) - Left to pursue my doctorate in French Medieval studies.


Co-wrote a collection of short stories in French when I was 19 or 20. ISBN 2863943499
