About Stephanie

I have studied French since high school, and finished my Bachelor`s and Master`s in French. I have also taken numerous trips to Europe for the purpose of improving my language ability as well as my knowledge of culture. I started tutoring French in college as an undergraduate, then I went on to give leisure courses, adult continuing education, during my graduate years. I got my first overseas teaching job at the JET Programme, teaching ESL as a Assistant Language Teacher in Japanese junior high schools in Yokohama. From my return to the US, I continued to teach, both private lessons and at the university level in New Orleans. I got my first formal French teaching job at a high school in New Orleans until Hurricane Katrina displaced me to Houston. In Houston I spent the following 6 years teaching ESL in a private institution. There, I prepared students for IELTS, TOEFL, GRE and academic writing, speech, reading comprehension, and so on. I taught English in Japan at a private language school in Tsuchiura for 2 years. Home finally in New Orleans, I am completely freelance. I can offer formal language lessons,or tutoring, English, ESL, basic conversation, formal writing, speech, test preparation and basic French lessons.
