I'm an anthropologist. I have a triple BA in International Relations, Political Science, and French. I lived in France and worked in Europe in the French language. I have an MA in European Studies (Belgium), and another MA in Anthropology. I worked professionally in Spanish in the field of archaeology in Guatemala for nearly a decade. My household is bilingual English-Spanish.
I tutored French while in college and graduate school, and Spanish while in graduate school. I worked as a teaching assistant at Brandeis University and Tufts University while in graduate school, and taught as adjunct faculty in anthropology at Wagner College for one year.
