Hello! I'm from Iowa, USA, and I live in Brittany, France.
My approach to language learning is to always keep lessons engaging and communicative, based on your real-life interests. I'm here to encourage and motivate you, and to help you reach your goals!
My lessons are conversational and relaxed, but I offer reading and exercises as homework. I take notes during lessons so that we can review and upgrade our language together, paying attention to patterns in grammar and pronunciation.
I received my degree in English in 2016, and my Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (Cambridge) in 2019. I spent one year in France as a self-employed English tutor while studying French. I teach children as young as 6 years old, and welcome students of any age and level.
Please take a trial lesson to start. This benefits both the student and tutor so we can develop lessons based on your level and needs. That way we can develop a learning plan tailored to you!
Je suis une Américaine de le Midwest et j'habite à Brest. J'ai reçu mon B.A. en anglais en 2016 et mon certificat en enseignement de l'anglais aux locuteurs d'autres langues (Cambridge) en octobre dernier. J'ai passé un an en France en tant que tuteur anglophone indépendant tout en étudiant le français.
Mon approche de l'apprentissage des langues est de toujours garder les leçons attrayantes et communicatives.
