Bonjour, je m’appelle Andrea.

I’ve been teaching French for 12 years and I absolutely love it. I am a true francophile (lover of all things French). I have lived in France on two separate occasions. Learning a language has been a life-changing experience that has opened up opportunities I would not have had otherwise. I love sharing that passion and those opportunities with my students. Learning a language is more than just learning words and grammar, it is about learning about culture and world view of others, creating global citizenship.

I live in Tauranga with my husband and baby son. I love travelling, hiking, camping, biking, the outdoors, as well as good cafes and the cinema, especially foreign films. I also help run a French-speaking group.
