A little about me:
I graduated from Wofford College in 2008 with a BA in French with a Pre-law concentration. I graduated magna cum laude and even received the George C. Adams award for maintaining the highest GPA in my major within my graduating class. I became a French tutor at Wofford College in 2006, and tutored in every French subject offered from basic grammar and syntax construction in French 101 to French literature and phonetics. In 2007, I studied abroad in Rennes, France (a virtually 100% francophone city in Brittany, France) at Villejean Université, Rennes II for an entire semester. While there, I received a certificate in French Linguistics & Grammar and received on-sight phonetics and speech training.
I tutored in a Math Academy Program at Cleveland Elementary School in Spartanburg, SC while at Wofford College. Our school started this program to help improve standardized test scores in that school. It was not only a delightfully inspiring experience but also a great learning experience for me.
In Fall of 2008, I matriculated at the University of South Carolina School of Law; I obtained my Juris Doctorate (JD) degree in May 2011. I worked for Hire Counsel, a legal & review management company, as a contractual legal professional that reviews legal documents, including, most pertinently, FRENCH legal documents. I currently work part-time as a Professor at Virginia College here in Columbia, where I teach Medical Law & Ethics. Though my part-time teaching career does not allow me to utilize my french studies background, it has exposed me to various learning styles and non-traditional pedagogical methods, as I deal consistently with broad range of students culturally and intellectually; my experience there has inadvertently enhanced my tutoring/teaching ability.
Please do not be alarmed by my workload as my schedule is VERY flexible!
I look forward to working with you! Contact me as soon as possible, and let's get started!
