I am a former teacher of French and the co-head of the Foreign Language Department at an independent school, having worked primarily with grades 4-8. I am experienced in creating and implementing both French and Spanish curricula. Additionally, I have provided French tutoring services for the past three years. After working for a brief period of time in a residential setting, I have experience working in all subject areas for ages 12-18; however, I am most proficient and comfortable with the humanities. I am currently a full-time student in a Clinical PsyD Doctorate program. My approach to tutoring is to identify the area of desired improvement, whether it is homework completion, test prep, content comprehension or application, and to work with the student to identify techniques to help strengthen his or her understanding and application of the material. I see the tutor and the student as a team working together toward success and continuing growth. Throughout this process, I try to make practice exercises meaningful and fun; after all, learning is one of life's greatest adventures!
