Looking for a tutor to get you where you need to go? Look no further.
I am very friendly, very patient and relaxed, and very knowledgeable in my fields of expertise with over ten years experience as a full-time tutor at university level (Macquarie University and Saint Francis University).
My method is tailored to your learning style. As every person is different, I will evaluate your needs during the first session, or preferably in a pre-assessment questionnaire (in emails/telephone exchanges before meet-up) to pinpoint your style of learning and needs; that is to say, what kind of learner are you (visual, audio, rule-oriented), and what is your background/level and learning strengths and weaknesses and issues/concerns? Tutors have to know how their students will best learn; anything else is less than ideal and not worth the student's time or money.
I assure you that I will make explanations and answers as clear as clear can be during your session. No matter how abstract something is, I work with it until I can get as much gray area out as possible for you. And I never let my students walk away until they've mastered what needs to be mastered -- that's a promise!
As a linguist, I know the intricacies of both the English
(native speaker) and French
languages, making me ideal for tutoring those subjects as well as academic writing
and test preparation
guidance. I also am qualified to teach TESOL (certified).
In my non-linguistic areas of expertise, I am very qualified in tutoring algebra
(mastered during university studies) and geography
(reinforced by by being a world traveler).
Hope to hear from you soon!
