I am a native French speaker and I have tutored French for many years to professionals, college and high school students.
In addition, I enjoy tutoring mathematics, beyond arithmetic and up to calculus. The reason is that it is precisely during that phase of learning that some will develop a love for symbolic thinking in search of real-world solutions or, unfortunately, many get discouraged and turn the switch off indefinitely. Oftentimes, this has little to do with natural ability but with institutional teaching and the lack of personal encouragement. This is where a good tutor comes in, with the ability to work with the weakest and show them their potential to turn bad grades to good ones, not just for one exam or two but with applications for the rest of their lives.
While my academic background is rooted in Mathematics and my professional career in computer programming, I enjoy working with individuals and groups of all ages, be it in Algebra or in French. I believe that a well-rounded education is a desirable goal for all in our global community. To the extent that I can assist you or your student in pursuing that goal, I will be at your service.
