I am a native-born American English speaker and received my B.A. in French Literature from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2009. After graduating, I lived and worked in Rouen, France for one year. I taught conversational English in two French public schools to students from ages 11 to 21. I am not only formally educated in the French language, but I also have valuable experience living and working in French culture for an extended period of time. After returning to the United States I continue to speak everyday in French with native speakers, as well as read and write, in order to always maintain as well as improve my French skills. I am a young but highly motivated translator and I can promise accuracy, organization, promptness, willingness to research, and to always be a pleasure to work with.
