I have been tutoring French, Spanish and English through an excellent Manhattan tutoring agency for over 5 years. I started tutoring over 10 years ago, in college, found I had a knack for it and loved doing it. In New York, I have tutored academic French and Spanish and also helped students prep for the SAT II and AP French exams. I recently started doing private tutoring for French conversation. (Fun not to have to teach to the test!) This past year, I did more English tutoring than usual, talking through themes and characters with a high school freshman and working with him on his writing. I'd love to do more English tutoring, specifically working through novels.
I have been a big reader my whole life and was an English major in college.
I learned French as an exchange student in France, through rather painful but very effective immersion. I took a few French courses in college and went back to France after college to live there for another 7 months. In New York City, I worked for a total of about 3 years for the French Government Tourist Office, spending the bulk of my day speaking with colleagues and clients in French.
I started learning Spanish when I was in secondary school in France. I continued taking courses in college, studied for a month in Costa Rica and learned a lot from Spanish roommates in... Ireland. A few years ago, I spent 5 months living/traveling in Argentina and Uruguay. I now live with Colombian roommates and work as a counselor at a hospital, where over half of my patients only speak Spanish.
