Hi! I’m Jenn, and I want to be your tutor! I graduated in May of 2013 from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR with BA degrees in French Studies and Studio Art. In the Fall of 2014, I began my graduate coursework at the University of Colorado Boulder, working towards my Master's Degree in French. While in undergrad, I studied for six months in Strasbourg, France, where I lived in a home-stay, not only sharpening my language skills but absorbing the culture as well. In addition, I have just returned from living and working in France as a teachers' assistant. Because of this experience, not only did I gain experience working with a younger group of children (ages 6 through 11), but I was able to learn a new group of skills with regards to teaching a foreign language.

One of my passions in life is sports. I have played competitive volleyball since the age of thirteen, and I played on the varsity team at Lewis and Clark College. Because of my athletic history, I know what it means to have good sportsmanship and to collaborate in order to achieve goals. While I love playing, I also love coaching! I have experience coaching both boys and girls between ages 9 through 14, and I have worked as a co-head coach for a 16's Club volleyball team.

I love learning, and I want you to have a great learning experience as well! I want to work with you to help you become the best you can be!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

French

I first began studying the French language 7 years ago, as a freshman in high school. Currently, I am a French studies major expected to graduate in 2013. I have recently returned from a semester abroad in France, where I attended a university and lived in a home-stay. While abroad, not only did my language skills improve, but my understanding of the French culture did as well. I am more than willing to use my experiences to help you improve your French!!

Volleyball

Volleyball is a passion! I first learned the sport in 3rd grade, at age 9, and I continued to play competitive club volleyball from ages 13 through 18. I am currently approaching the final season of my collegiate career. Though my current position is outside hitter, I have extensive knowledge and practice in every position.

I also have experience coaching. I have coached and lead both camps and teams, using my experience to help younger athletes improve their knowledge of the game, their skills, and their sportsmanship. In my experience, I have had to organize drills and games which focus on specific skills for a range of levels, anywhere from beginner to advanced. I would love to share my passion with you!
