After graduating in English & Literature Studies (Université Lyon 2, France), Géraldine came to live in the UK in 1988. Both her MA (Nottingham University) and MPhil (Loughborough University) - and subsequent publications - focus on the Algerian War (1954-1962) and the Harkis.

She is a qualified teacher of both French and English as a foreign language. She has taught French (and a few Spanish classes) since 1989, primarily at the University of Northampton (Joint Honours Programme). She is a very experienced and versatile French language tutor who has taught a variety of courses and a wide ability range of students - from complete beginners to advanced level (C2).
