I have throughout my life been a high achieving student, particularly in languages. I grew up in Mexico with an Australian mother; I am, therefore, entirely bilingual in both English and Spanish. Throughout high school I studied French; having grown up bilingual, I already had a strong linguistic basis. I continued this study in university and studied on exchange in Paris at Sciences Po, one of the Grands Ecoles (the French equivalent to the Ivy League). Throughout my academic career I have learnt several tools and techniques that I have found extremely effective at both a high school and university level. I deeply enjoy the process of passing these skills on to younger students and inspiring a love of languages similar to mine. I have experience working with children in the 9-12 age group as an English tutor, and have greatly enjoyed the experience of helping young people meet their full potential. I furthermore have tutored students at SAT level: last year I tutored one student in English and helped her achieve top marks to gain entrance to biomedicine. Here is what some previous students have said:

"I really enjoyed how in our sessions you would look past the confines of the text and explore the context in which it was written. That was especially helpful." Lauren R.

"I really enjoyed the tutoring sessions, particularly your writing tasks. I have so much more confidence for my exams now!" Scott S.

"I went from a C to an A-. Thank you so much!" Liza B.
