I graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 2011 where I received a Bachelor of Arts in French Studies with minors in English and Linguistics. I began my tutoring career during my time as an undergraduate student and worked at my university's Academic Enhancement Center where I tutored in French, English, Philosophy, and Sociology. After graduating, I spent time as an English teaching assistant in France. After returning to the US, I began working at the Alliance Franaise where I taught French for three years to adults and youth at various levels. I also spent time working in a French immersion school with children of many different ages. For the past two years I taught French to undergraduate students at Boston College where I was also working toward a Master's Degree in French Literature. Having obtained the Master's, I am now beginning a PhD at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. I am very passionate about French and about communicating my love for it to others in a way that would be contagious. This is certainly the area in which I have the most experience and the deepest affection, but I also enjoy tutoring in a wide variety of subjects. I have a particular love for literature, whether in French or English, and have a strong desire to see an increase in the number of students who find themselves enamored of it in the same way as I do. If I can help to produce that in some way, I will be satisfied. I think that education and rigorous, critical, analytical thinking are of the utmost importance in our day and age. I desire to encourage these things. In my spare time, I enjoy reading books on all kinds of subjects, playing and listening to music, and spending time with people from other cultures/countries.
