About Jennifer

Hi! I'm Jenn, and I want to be your tutor! I graduated in May of 2013 from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR with BA degrees in French Studies and Studio Art. As an undergrad, I studied for six months in Strasbourg, France, where I lived in a home-stay, not only sharpening my language skills but absorbing the culture as well. Upon completing my studies at Lewis and Clark, I moved to France Where I worked as a teachers' assistant. Because of this experience, not only did I gain experience working with a younger group of children (ages 6 through 11), but I was able to learn a new group of skills with regards to teaching a foreign language. In The fall of 2014, I began my graduate coursework at the University of Colorado at Boulder where I took literature classes and taught introductory French classes. I graduated in May of 2013 with my Master's degree in French Literature and knew that I wanted to find a way to give other students the opportunity to travel, learn and grow internationally (which is what I do now!)

One of my passions in life is sports. I have played competitive volleyball since the age of thirteen, and I played on the varsity team at Lewis and Clark College. Because of my athletic history, I know what it means to have good sportsmanship and to collaborate in order to achieve goals. While I love playing, I also love coaching! I have experience coaching both boys and girls between ages 9 through 14, and I have worked as a co-head coach for a 16's Club volleyball team. In addition, I have completed two seasons as the solo head coach for a 16s and 14s team at a volleyball club here in Colorado!

I love learning, and I want you to have a great learning experience as well! I want to work with you to help you become the best you can be!

Approved subjects

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.

French

I first began studying the French language 10 years ago, as a freshman in high school. I majored in French Studies at Lewis and Clark College and graduated in 2013. Currently, I am completing my master's degree in French literature at the University of Colorado in Boulder, expecting to graduate in 2016. In 2012, I studied abroad in StrasbOurg, France, where I attended a university and lived in a home-stay. While abroad, not only did my language skills improve, but my understanding of the French culture did as well. In addition, I lived in France for a year before beginning my studies in Colorado. I am more than willing to use my experiences to help you improve your French!!

Volleyball

Volleyball is a passion! I first learned the sport in 3rd grade, at age 9, and I continued to play competitive club volleyball from ages 13 through 18. I am currently approaching the final season of my collegiate career. Though my current position is outside hitter, I have extensive knowledge and practice in every position.

I also have experience coaching. I have coached and lead both camps and teams, using my experience to help younger athletes improve their knowledge of the game, their skills, and their sportsmanship. In my experience, I have had to organize drills and games which focus on specific skills for a range of levels, anywhere from beginner to advanced. I would love to share my passion with you!
