As a graduate of Duke University with Magna Cum Laude honors and a double major in International Comparative Studies and French language, I have extensive experience with French, English, and writing. I have nine years of French study in my background and a six-month study abroad in Paris in 2012. My senior honors thesis was about France and included primary research in the form of 18 interviews I personally conducted in France that I then translated to English to be included in my writing.
Because of my capabilities in writing on a wide variety of topics, I have developed a strong command of the English language, including grammar, spelling, structure, and punctuation.
I was a successful French tutor at Duke during my undergraduate career and I also taught English to children in Cairo, Egypt during the summer of 2011. My tutoring methods include individualized lesson plans and exercises that fit each student's needs and learning style. I believe in a hands-on approach that allows students to not only study and learn new material but also to practice using their skills as often as possible with practice exercises and activities, which have proven to be effective methods for language-learning and developing writing in the past.
