Hello my name is Catherine. I'm an English major with a French minor and I play violin in GSO. I have been studying French on and off since I was 12 and last fall (2015) I spent a semester in Nantes, France. Studying abroad in Nantes was amazing and I would love to talk about my experiences with anyone who is interested in spending a semester abroad! 

Come see me Sunday or Monday evenings for tutoring!

Hey, my name is Hubert. I‘m from Burundi (just 24 hours of flying and you're there :)). I started speaking French since I was 3 years old. I’m a junior on a pre-med track. I’m involved in different orgs on campus and I like to add value to others. I like smiling, making eye contact, listening, remembering and calling people by their names . I would love to help you out with any aspect of French. It’s a really cool language that can connect you with millions of people, feel free to stop by on Sundays.

My name is Owen VanderBilt, and I am a junior majoring in Computer Science and French. I was born and raised in Rochester, NY but I'm loving my time here in Minnesota.

Bonjour! I'm Tatianna, a senior French & Psychological Science double major. I started learning french in 7th grade and have continued my studies into college. This past semester, I spent the semester in Nantes, France where I lived with a host family and took all of my courses in French. Living in France only made me more passionate about the language. I would definitely recommend studying abroad if you're thinking about it!

Apart from french, I love cooking gluten free recipes for my food blog, running, and spending time with my adorable nephew! 

Whether you need help with a homework assignment or would just like to speak in French, I would love for you to come visit me at the Culpepper Center. I'm available Tuesday 6-8pm, Wednesday 7-8pm, and Thursday 6-8pm.
