I plan to become a teacher in this language. I've completed all high school levels, as well as college levels through the 4000's. I have taken French I, II, III, IV, as well as French Conversation I & II, Composition, and various French Literature courses. I've been learning and speaking French for over four years, and tutoring the language for two years. I am currently a senior at USF working on my BA in French language & literature, expecting to graduate in December 2017!
English is my native language. I have taken English Language and Literature courses through out my entire academic career (14 years).
I am a native English speaker, and I have studied Spelling for 14 years. I have never tutored Spelling more than helping my nine-year-old sister with her vocabulary and spelling homework, but she seems to think I'm very helpful!
I am currently minoring in Linguistics. For this minor, I have taken many phonetics courses throughout my studies. I have taken specialized courses in French phonetics as well as English phonetics. In these courses, I have learned phonics as well as the anatomy of speech.
My knowledge of phonics goes hand in hand with speech. I have studied speech from an analytical view. By taking Phonetics courses, I have studied Speech patterns as well as International Phonetic Alphabet. I have used IPA to further my knowledge of speech sounds and their applications.
