Penny's Bio & Tutoring Experience

I've been teaching since I was in high school, when I was a part of the Summerbridge program at Seven Hills. I taught French and English literature through Summerbridge.
I lived in Bordeaux, France for a year where I taught English to French elementary students.
I taught French 102 at the University of Arizona.
I like to bring popular culture in the classroom to make the language and the culture more accessible. My ESL elementary school students last year loved watching clips from Sesame Street. My ESL middle school tutoree watched episodes from "Boy Meets World" in order to improve his ear for American accents. We'd watch a few minutes and then he'd explain in English what he understood. His grades improved the equivalent of two letter grades during our time together.
