Quality English and French lessons from a TEFL certified language teacher!



Hi students! I'm an American language teacher living in France. In 2010, I moved from the US to France to learn about the beautiful culture and language. For several years, I lived in the region of Provence in the south of France. Today, I live in the peaceful countryside of my favorite French province: Brittany (Bretagne)!


I love learning languages! I'm completely fluent in French, as well as my native English, and enjoy learning other languages like Italian and Russian. I have a Bachelor's degree in psychology from Oklahoma State University and a degree (une licence) in modern French literature from the French university Université de Toulon-Sud. I also have a TEFL certification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) from the accredited TEFL academy TEFL Toulouse
I've been a French and English teacher through Cafetalk since 2013 and have a lot of experience teaching people from many different levels and age groups.


I love French culture! Ever since I moved to France, I have had many wonderful experiences that I would love to share with students interested in French culture.
I also sing jazz and folk music and study instruments like the guitar. Music is my passion! What's yours?



I have many hobbies! I love cooking, sewing, knitting, gardening, reading, and watching movies and TV series. I like to travel and learn about different cultures. I like animals, especially cats! And of course, I love drinking wine! I live in France, after all! I'm also interested in history, philosophy, and psychology.


In my French and English lessons, my goal is to help students...

  • feel more comfortable and confident when communicating with native speakers about a variety of subjects 
  • speak as much as possible in a relaxed environment
  • learn useful vocabulary, phrasal verbs, and expressions
  • train their ears to understand a variety of accents
  • practice listening to fun audio and video and reading interesting texts to understand the main idea while trying to catch as many details as possible
  • understand grammar rules for both English and French using clear explanations and specific examples
  • recognize and correct bad habits when speaking or writing
  • write and speak clearly with natural phrasing, sentence structure, and word choice.
  • use clear, correct pronunciation and intonation.

Thank you for visiting my profile! Hope to see you in class!
