As a tutor, I strive to teach a lasting understanding and knowledge that can be built upon so that my students can find the confidence and the tools that will be continually useful.
I believe that communication is key. I do my best to teach by using my student's viewpoint as the starting point then traveling to the point of understanding in a way that will facilitate future learning.
In addition to my tutoring experience, I have extensive experience helping friends and family with a variety of coursework, and so I feel that the tutoring experience should be fun, while still staying on task. I see learning as a journey that requires work but that is also very rewarding.

I have experience helping with English and Writing
courses. This includes using correct grammar

I grew up in a bilingual household (English and Spanish
), and I developed an ability to see beyond the actual words used to what a person is actually trying to say. I learned French
in college so, I know what it's like to learn an entirely new language
. I have also lived in France as a student taking coursework in French, and I understand that learning a language is also largely cultural.
