Hello, Hola, Bonjour!
I recently graduated from Harvard University with a B.A. in Romance Languages and Literatures (French and Spanish). I'm a friendly and enthusiastic person who is an experienced tutor and very interested in education. I would love to help you or your son or daughter with Spanish, French, English, writing, the SAT, or the SSAT. Having studied abroad in France and Argentina, I am fluent in French and Spanish, and also comfortable reading and writing in both languages.
As a tutor, I look for ways to make effective learning as enjoyable as possible. Once a student feels confident in his or her ability to progress in a subject, I find that frustration tends to disappear. Therefore I try to instill some of that confidence while focusing on moving forward. My teaching experience includes tutoring English as a second language with the Literacy Network of South Berkshire. Whether the subject is test preparation or academic tutoring, I like to tackle the area from a couple of angles, both working on the skills and knowledge involved and also preparing strategies for success when evaluated (i.e., techniques for test-taking). Retention is very important for languages and other subjects, so I use mnemonics to help.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I look forward to hearing from you!
