Agnes eventually left nursing to return to French tutoring, a job she had loved as a college student. Tutoring and seeing students make progress gives her joy and satisfaction. For the past 10 years, she has been teaching French to adults and helping middle school and high school students gain knowledge and confidence with French. Her main goal is to help the learner become independent as early as possible. She achieves that goal by reinforcing the building blocks of the language and by implementing the material learned in the classroom.
