I am a student currently studying at the University of Connecticut in Stamford, and will pursue a Bachelor's degree in English/Journalism.

I have strong English writing and literary skills and Math skills, and attended a bilingual French school for 11 years (K-10) and continue practicing it so I am proficient in French in addition to being a native Spanish speaker.

I have limited tutoring experience, however I know that I have mastery in the subjects which I am offering to tutor and have been certified in them by Wyzant. I am very excited to tutor and hopefully help someone else understand something they are struggling with. I have had experience tutoring in English/Writing, French, and ESL and am also capable of tutoring in English, Spanish, and Math. I look forward to sharing my skills to help you or someone you know more fully understand the material they are learning.

I have always had a passion for writing and English literature and always performed well in English courses throughout high school and college, excitedly perfecting my writing skills throughout the years. I have also recently received an English Department award granted by my college for "Excellence in Literary Analysis."

In addition, I have always considered myself to have a more than strong understanding of Math concepts, received high grades in math classes through high school, and am eager to transmit my math skills to any math student.

I am fluent in both French and Spanish (understanding, speaking, reading, and writing). I attended a bilingual French school, The French-American School of New York from K to 10 where I learned to read and write in French. I took the SAT II French in high school and received a score of 800 as well as the AP French exam and received a score of 5. I have also taught French to children in the past with the Alliance Française of Greenwich. In addition, my mother was a French teacher for many years and I observed her classes on occasion.

I am also a native Spanish speaker and took the SAT II Spanish in high school as well as the AP Spanish Language exam with a score of 5 and the AP Spanish Literature course and exam with a score of 4.

I am very eager to transmit my language skills to any language learner.

My tutoring approach is centered on sharing with the student a passion for learning. As sometimes certain subjects can seem dense, dull, or remotely applicable to the students' lives, it is my goal to make the material more connected to the students' lives by simplifying and sparking the student's interest in the subject (as an example- through present-day applications and fun activities.) I also strive to foster a deeper understanding of and confidence in the subject by going beyond simple memorization (or "yes"/"no" answers) and instead cultivating critical thinking skills through approaches like the Socratic method.
I also strongly encourage the student to express their questions or concerns as we learn the material, rather than simply going from concept to concept or lesson to lesson.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in an English/Writing, Language, or Math tutor for yourself or someone you know. I look forward to helping you reach your learning goals.

I am a university student with a major in English. I have always had a passion for language and writing as well as for learning in general and I hope to share that with as many people as possible.
