I am fluent in French after having lived for a year in Aix-en-Provence. I am also highly talented in mathematics, enthusiastic about science, and very dedicated to English. During my senior year, I worked as the school's French Assistant at St. John's College. Any person who was having trouble in French class, or simply wanted to practice French or, in one case, translate a resumé, would come to me and I would work with them until they felt more confident about themselves. I did similar work over the summer, helping a high school student catch up with both his French and math classes. Informally, my tutoring experience is even wider. I have helped friends do chemistry, math, and even assisted with papers and have always been told that I was extremely useful and confident.

I like to try and develop a personal rapport with whoever I'm working with and find some method that works with them, mixing mnemonic devices, simple and complex problems and anything else that seems like it would be fun or interesting. I believe that it is extraordinarily difficult for a student to do well in any subject that they find frustrating or boring. I also believe that all of the subjects that I would be able to tutor are fascinating, wondrous to explore; if the student sees that, the subject will usually become far easier to them. Obviously it is no substitute for simple rigor and studying, but it makes that necessary rigor easier and more plausible. I love teaching, and I would love to work with you!
