I am passionate about the French language and want to share what I know. I recently graduated from Penn State University with a minor in French and Francophone studies. There, I took and tutored for classes in basic, intermediate and advanced French, as well as in literature, writing and translation.
I have been studying the French language since 8th grade. I have also studied abroad in Montreal, Canada with the Lingua Worldwide program and in Poitiers, France, with distant relatives.
My approach to tutoring is, after assessing a student's level of proficiency, to target the student's interests. If she likes to read, we read books written in dual languages. If he likes to talk about the outdoors, we spend time learning vocabulary about that subject.
I find tutoring students who are motivated to learn and curious about the subject matter a rewarding activity that enriches my own linguistic experience as well as the student's. I look forward to meeting students and helping them to learn the French language!
In addition to French, I am pleased to offer my students tutoring in additional subject matter that they may have questions with, such as biology and writing.
