I have always loved learning, from when I was a child pretending to teach bears to my college studies. As a student who personally excelled as a Valedictorian in High School and who graduated with High Honors from my university studies, I know what it takes to do well in school. I naturally pass on my love of learning to those I teach. I have tutored both college and high school students with good success, and have also spent time teaching children as well as a French teacher at a Montessori school. I love it when I see a light bulb go on in a students' head!
I specialize in tutoring French and English. I quickly ascertain what goals a student wants to achieve, and then develop a plan to help them get there step by step. While I seek to challenge students to continue to learn, I am also quick to encourage and recognize success. I assign homework and assess learning as needed.
I want every student I work with to do well and succeed, and desire to always give the best help that I can. Therefore, I never charge a student if they do not feel the session was satisfactory. I have a three hour cancellation policy.
I majored in French in college, at UCSB and graduated as a Distinguished Senior in the French Major. I studied abroad in France for a year, so I have a good grasp of the language and am able to speak conversationally.
I was always an excellent student in school. I got straight A's in elementary school, middle school, high school, and college. I graduated as a Valedictorian from high school, and graduated from college with Highest Honors. I know what it takes to succeed in school, and the study skills it requires.
I am an excellent writer. I got A's on almost every paper I wrote in college, even papers written in a different language. I understand the mechanics needed to clearly construct and support good arguments in order to make persuasive papers. I have a very good grasp of grammar and sentence construction as well.
