Welcome to my web site. For many years, I have worked in close collaboration with teachers and conducted workshops and courses for the preparation of the TOPT, BTLPT, LOTE,and other certification tests. I also participated in the ACTFL OPI workshop, for the evaluation of oral proficiency.
With a Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Paris 8 (France), I gained a long and rich experience through my teaching in various countries and many universities in the USA--Penn State University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Harvard University. I have used this experience as well as my expertise in Linguistics and Language Acquisition to design effective strategies and techniques for the development of oral and written proficiency.
