I was born and raised in France where I obtained my BA of English studies (Orléans University). In 2006, I passed my CAPES (French equivalent of PGCE) of English and taught the language in France for four years before moving to Coventry. In 2015, I completed the first year of a Masters degree in French as a Foreign Language (correspondence, Grenoble University). My dissertation focused on how games can help memorise vocabulary. I have been teaching at the University of Warwick for four years now.

I have a passion for languages and I enjoy learning new ones. I also love cinema, music and literature and I like sharing my knowledge of the French culture with students, as well as discussing current affairs.
