Andrea Laughmiller To All Instructors
Andrea Laughmiller received her Bachelors of Arts in French and English from James Madison University. She spent a semester studying French in Paris, France. She also studied French at Laval University in Quebec, Canada. She taught French 1-4 in Virginia Beach high schools and currently tutors students privately in French and Latin. She has worked with children of all ages as a piano teacher, Sunday School teacher, Youth Group leader, and Vacation Bible school teacher, and as a tutor with Classical Conversations.
Andrea has homeschooled her children (ages 14, 16, and 20) for the past 15 years. She is passionate about speaking French and enjoys sharing her love of the French language with others. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, developing relationships with people of other cultures, gardening, reading, writing, and cooking.
"Andrea has been teaching my daughter French, and I am continually amazed at not only what she’s learning but the fact that she’s retaining it. Perhaps most importantly, she LOVES it. Andrea imparts not only her knowledge of the language, but a desire in a child’s heart to learn. I catch my daughter teaching her dolls French, singing French songs, and even reviewing her note cards with no outside prompting.”
