Kia ora, bonjour! My name is Alana and I love learning and teaching languages.

I am an NZ registered teacher and for the last seventeen years I have taught intermediate, secondary and tertiary students French and Esol. I have enjoyed studying Italian, Spanish and currently, Te reo Māori.

I live with my husband, two young children, and two labradors in the Western Bay of Plenty. Life is busy but I enjoy working in my garden, cooking, reading and spending time with friends when I can. Learning and teaching languages has enriched my life beyond measure. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my love of language with you!
