I've taught French & German for over 15 years as well as using my language skills in the business world.
I like hands-on activities and keeping students engaged through oral practice by circulating and speaking to a variety of partners while filling in a chart of replies, vocab & grammar games at the board or with a partner at desks, and doing in-class projects that allow learners of all types to shine. Whenever a competition is involved, I find that student interest skyrockets !

I worked in France & Germany for ten years to perfect my language skills. I've also had the opportunity to travel on four of the seven continents and found that it's true: "Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer."
