Hello/Bonjour, potential student! I am a former high school teacher of 5 1/2 years that would like to help you with various subjects. I was a French teacher, but I also did official district homebound instruction (for students that cannot attend regular high school for health related reasons) for 2 years as well. I also tutored officially after school for students on campus, again in various subjects. I have been tutoring for WyzAnt for nearly 6 years now and very much enjoy it!

My philosophy of tutoring is to tailor the lessons to meet your needs. Every student learns in his or her own way and I do my best to present the topics in the way that works best for you.

I have both lived and taught (English as foreign language) in France, and enjoy helping students from all different backgrounds. I graduated from Missouri State University with a 3.62 overall (4 point scale), thus I feel that I am qualified to tutor in many areas. At the end of December (2014), I will have earned my Masters in Educational Technology as well.

I look forward to helping you achieve success in your subjects, so please contact me as soon as you are ready to learn!

Before I knew I was going to teach French, I was originally going to become a math teacher. I have had numerous students tell me that I should teach math, as they really enjoy my step-by-step, simple breakdown method. I have helped a lot of people conquer their fear of math.
