My name is Polly, and I recently received my Master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education. For my undergraduate studies, I attended Vassar College where I majored in French and Francophone Studies. I spent a semester living in Paris and was fortunate enough to travel to the south of France as well.
I tutored college-level students of elementary French throughout my senior year at Vassar, using a very hands-on, interactive approach.
I took an intensive course of Russian during my senior year at Vassar, which led me to do a summer intensive Russian program at Middlebury College this past summer. So, I technically have about 3-4 years of studying Russian as well.
After all of that time in school, I began tutoring in many subjects, but mainly French and English. I also traveled to Thailand where I received a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults from an intensive Cambridge University training program. I am now a part time ESL instructor at Rennert International in Manhattan.
I have a strong passion for languages; because of that, I like to think I make learning them fun and interesting. I can tutor any level of English and French, and at an elementary level in Russian.
If you're struggling with learning any of these languages and are looking for some help, look no further!
