As a Teaching Fellow in French Studies, my role involves planning and teaching French grammar, mentoring students’ learning, and working alongside language departments (both internal and external) to promote Warwick’s internationalisation programs.
I am passionate about driving diversity of both culture and thought, so am always looking at new ways to enhance our assessment and teaching methods for students.
