I have been tutoring privately since 1997 and have worked with all ages and levels. Prior to going to graduate school, I worked for Ivy West Educational Services, where I taught English/Language Arts (SAT/ACT Reading and Writing, ISEE/SSAT Reading)Spanish and, of course, French. I have a Ph.D. in French from UC Davis with an emphasis in Second Language Learning, and have taught French at all levels, from kindergarten to college. I remember how and why I used to struggle with a subject when I was in high school, and have used that knowledge to craft an understanding and patient approach to help the students not only learn the material, but to comprehend it and ultimately, enjoy it. My approaches vary based on the student's needs and progress, and I do not hesitate to adapt to an individual student's learning style. I can help you ace your next test, prepare for the AP/SAT Subject Test, or even for an upcoming trip.
