Personal tutor for literature, ESL or French, Middle School through University and adult learners. New to the language? I can make it easy. Advanced students? I can help you fine-tune your speaking, reading and writing skills.
I am an experienced tutor and classroom teacher (university, high school and middle school) who enjoys working one-on-one with students. My teaching style provides strategies for proficiency and accuracy as well as a framework for creative problem solving and effective communication. I call my approach "free spirit, tough mind" tutoring.
With over 15 years of university teaching experience, I have worked successfully with a wide variety of adult learners. I have extensive experience working with students of all ages and stages of academic development. My experience includes teaching across the curriculum for home school grades K-8, and classroom experience in both public and private middle schools and high schools. From inner-city high school in Birmingham, Alabama, to translating at the UN in New York, to teaching college in Paris, at Rutgers U, Princeton U, UNC, U of Alabama, Marist College, Birmingham-Southern College, and a variety of private tutoring, I have enjoyed working with diverse cultures, nationalities and personalities.
Responding to your learning style, interests, and priorities, I will work to collaborate with you using both right-brain 'intuitive' approaches and left-brain 'logical' approaches. Whatever your age, it delights me to help you reach your goals. Please contact me to discuss your needs.
