Bonjour and hello!

I would like to offer my tutoring services to French learners of all levels! I have a degree in French with first class honours and an oral distinction from the University of Bristol, and have studied and lived in France. I also have experience tutoring in a middle school.

A pianist for over 10 years and former English tutor to middle school ESL students, I would also like to offer my tutoring services to English language learners and beginning pianists.

English

I have always been passionate about languages, beginning with my native English. I studied English up to the highest AP level in high school and considered pursuing a BA in English. Studying foreign languages at the university level instead provided me with a greater understanding of language acquisition and of the mechanics of English. I put my skills into practice professionally when I worked as an English tutor in a middle school for one year.

ESL/ESOL

I have always been passionate about languages, and my native English is no exception. I studied English up to the highest AP level in high school and considered pursuing a BA in English. Studying foreign languages at the university level instead has provided me with a greater understanding of language acquisition, a skill I put into practice professionally when I tutored middle school ESL students in English for one year. I believe that an interactive, direct method of language pedagogy is the most effective; I employ my mastery of English in engaging conversation and instruction to the highest benefit of the student.

French

The language and the culture of France have been two of my greatest passions since I first began to study French over 13 years ago. I went on to complete a BA in French at the University of Bristol in the UK, graduating with first class honors and an oral distinction. I also immersed myself in the language and culture by working and studying in both Paris and the south of France. I believe that an interactive, direct method of language pedagogy is the most effective; I can employ my mastery of French in engaging conversation and instruction to the highest benefit of the student. I have experience tutoring learners of both English and French, and am eager to share my love of language and culture with students of all levels!

Piano

I studied piano formally under a teacher and performed as an accompanist for several years, and have continued to learn and play the instrument on my own for over thirteen years. I approach teaching the piano with a balance of patient investigation of technique and an enthusiasm for the performance of great musical pieces.
