Private tutor in Richmond, VA
Shepherd College - B.A., English , Florida State University - Ph.D., French
The combination of my academic background and my practical career experiences have given me a unique background and perspective on what's required to help students be successful learners. Academically, my foundation began with a bachelor's from Shepherd College in English. I then attended Florida State University, eventually graduating with a doctorate in Literature and French Language. Through my studies, I developed extensive knowledge of these subject areas, and I learned how to instruct others to become proficient. I have since combined my formal studies with my practical learnings as a teacher in Germany and Italy, where I worked at a private language school. I also studied in France during my travels in Europe. The first-hand experience exposed me to culture, sounds, and sights, and I soaked up as much as I could. The combination of all these experiences shaped me into who I am today. I love languages and piano. They share similarities of shared ideas, emotions, and human communication. They also share an amazing beauty. The sounds of languages like German, Spanish, Italian, and French emit a magic and mysteriousness that transcends the most basic transmission of meaning. I live in Richmond, Virginia, and I love to travel.
