I was born in Europe and have lived in Spain, the UK and France prior to moving to the US (San Francisco and NY). I grew up speaking several languages. Although I have an MBA and worked in business for a few years, I eventually changed careers to pursue teaching, my true passion.
As a certified teacher in several states, I have taught various subjects in the public, charter and private school arena to elementary through high school, so I am familiar with the curricula in all disciplines through 5th grade, teach languages including Engilsh/ESL and tutor for some standardized tests. I am currently finishing a PhD in languages/linguistics. I fully understand the needs of students and generally when I tutor, my students make significant progress. I have coached all age groups (as young as Pre-K to senior executives) with many different levels. I am looking forward to working with you.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taught elementary school and kindergarten for over 10 years in 3 different states, so I know the curriculum well. Over the past few years, I have also tutored kids ages 4-12 in many subjects and prepared them for standardized tests, such as the ERB or ELA, with considerable success.
I am a French native (educated and raised in France) who has lived in the States since adolescence. I am a certified and licensed NYS teacher with a master's in French Education. I have considerable experience with all levels and ages.
As a teacher and linguist,this is in an area of great interest to me. I have taught classes in public speaking and worked with both students who had to give oral presentations in class, and helped executives overcome their fear. Helping them work on eye contact with their audience, posture, communication skills in order to be most effective are all critical areas of public speaking.
I am fluent in Spanish, having lived in Spain and South America for many years and studied the language extensively in secondary school, college and grad school. I have also taught Spanish to all levels and age groups privately, in groups and in schools.
I am currently finishing my thesis in linguistics/speech. As a language instructor, I deal with all aspects of speech, including people with speech impediments or delays, pronunciation, public speaking and general communication.
As a teacher, I regular coach students on study skills so that they become aware of what type of learner they are (visual, auditory...). Different methods can be used, but there are some prerequisites, such as knowing how to prioritize and organize. Procrastinating and leaving things for the last minute is to be avoided.
