More about our French Instructor, Danielle:
Bonjour! My name is Danielle, and I am a French professor with a B.A. in French from Georgetown University and a Master’s in French language and civilization from New York University in Paris. I’ve also studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and at the Université Lumiere Lyon II in Lyon. I have recently returned to the States after living in Lyon, France, and I am so excited to share what I have learned in my France experience with my students! I have fifteen years of experience tutoring French to children, high school and college students, and to adults, and I’ve had amazing results with all of my students. I have been a French professor at several colleges in San Diego, CA and in the Washington, DC area, and I also have experience working with diplomats to prepare them for the Foreign Service Exam in French. I absolutely love teaching and tutoring French and would love to share this beautiful language with you! I am also a bestselling author of six Paris-based novels, five short stories, the screenplay adaptation of my first novel, a book of poetry, and a memoir. I have over twelve years of experience editing and critiquing both fiction and non-fiction for other writers, and I love helping students with their creative writing assignments and college essays. I was also an English professor at a university in France as well as an ESL teacher at the Berlitz Language Centers in San Diego and New York City. I currently coach new and experienced writers on both fiction and non-fiction projects. Whether you need help with your next writing project or help learning the English language, I would love to work with you!
