Bilingual from birth and trilingual before the age of 10, I have always been interested in languages and the learning processes of new languages. While studying in the faculty of Humanities at the University of Toulouse I discovered linguistics, a discipline I became truly passionate about and extended my studies to language didactics and cognitive sciences, completing a degree in Teaching French as a Foreign Language. My career as a French teacher allowed me to work in contact with diverse groups of people, in multiple countries, and at a variety of teaching institutions.
My vision for teaching relies on a climate of trust in the classroom, with a focus on effective communication. I view the teacher’s role as being outside the focal point of the class, and instead see my role as a guide, a learning facilitator. My objectives are to help students develop into autonomous learners, capable of developing individual strategies so their learning is efficient, making them into independent and motivated French speakers.
