My name is Cherif D. I had a Master's degree in English and a teaching certification at Cheikh Anta Diop Dakar University. I am currently doing a PhD in English Caribbean literature at Tulane University. As a native speaker of French from Senegal, and having studied French from elementary school to college, I have a solid background in French grammar, reading, speaking and writing. I have been trained as a teacher of English and ESL. I taught English and ESL at middle school, high school and university levels. I also tutored elementary, middle school and high school students, as well as professionals across nationalities in both ESL and French. I have tutored different nationalities (Korean, French-Brazilian) for the last six months.

I am a highly motivated, energetic, passionate, skilled, creative and fun teacher. My teacher training, teaching and tutoring experience have helped me to understand the ways in which different ages learn. As a teacher and tutor, I put the learner at the center of the learning process. Through the use of appropriate learning materials and technology, I guide, counsel and coach the learners, helping them to appropriate their own knowledge based on their learning styles. With my strong communicative and professional skills, as well my ability to work with people of different ages, I believe that I will be a successful tutor.

If you are looking for a qualified tutor in English, ESL, French, grammar, reading, vocabulary and writing, I will be glad to help.
