Profile

I was educated in France, where I studied Philosophy and the History of Ideas at Paris IV (the Sorbonne), completing a PhD in Philosophy of Education in 2000, and teaching for several years in the French system.

Since I came to the UK, I have pursued my interest in the Philosophy of Education, particularly on topics related to language education and teaching, and have taught French and translation skills at a variety of levels and in various institutions, while also working as a freelance translator.
