Jessinia Saunders

Profession: Tour Guide

Teaching Experience: Not only have I been tutoring school age children in French since I was in high school, I have also taught a semester of French at the International House Philadelphia.

Interests: I love writing, reading, and listening to all sorts of music from anywhere! My latest loves are French speaking musicians 'Stromae' and 'Indila'. I also enjoy Korean pop music, German rock music, and I dabble here and there in Spanish, Hindi and Japanese indie rock.

As a hobby, I am currently studying both Japanese and Thai.

Education: I am a high school graduate who moved around quite a few times during high school-- three to be exact!

One all-girls private school which I attended for five years, The Baldwin School for Girls, and two public schools, First Colonial High School and Phoenixville Area High School.

While that does mean I went to three different high schools, it also means I learned to adapt quickly into new situations and met all kinds of interesting people-- some of which I am still friends with today!

I am also certified in TESOL for both French and English as of October 2016.
