Most of my teaching experience is for Oxford University’s undergraduate course in Medieval and Modern Languages. I have taught all these modules or topics at least once, and some of them several times. I also spent one year teaching English language at the Université Paris-Nanterre (2012–2013) and in primary schools in Chateauroux (2006–2007).
