University of Rhode Island (French)
Although I have always enjoyed helping others with their homework and (re)explaining material in ways that they can understand, I officially began my tutoring career during my time as a student at the University of Rhode Island. There I was employed by the Academic Enhancement Center (URI's free on-campus student tutoring service) to tutor students primarily in French and English, but also in other subjects such as Philosophy and Sociology. It was here that I honed my skills and was trained in the art of tutoring. I learned how to walk students through their difficulties in a way that allows them to discover, on their own as much as possible, the solutions to them. I learned to not simply show the students how to do something, but actually to empower them to do it themselves, to effectively communicate not only the "what", but also the "how" and the "why".
Additionally, I spent 2011-2012 as an English language assistant in the primary schools of France, an experience which also helped bolster my tutoring skills as I worked both individually and collectively with young pupils ready to learn English.
Since that time, I also worked for three years at the Alliance Française in Providence, RI from 2013 to 2016. There I gained experience teaching French to adults, young adults and teens in a classroom setting. I also did various tutoring on the side during this period of time. During the 2015-2016 academic year, I also was involved in a bilingual French/English school in Providence, RI as a classroom assistant, a setting in which I was required to speak only in French and occasionally had the responsibility of leading lessons with children at a Pre-K level.
Currently, I am a graduate student pursuing my Master's Degree in Romance Languages and Literature (with a French concentration) at Boston College (Boston, MA), where I am also a Teaching Fellow and teach Elementary level French to undergraduate students.
French and English are my areas of expertise as a tutor. However, I also offer my services in music tutoring, having been an aspiring musician for many years and having been extensively trained in Piano and General Music Theory. It would be my pleasure to offer tutoring as well in Philosophy and Logic, fields in which I take a considerable interest. Finally, I would also like to offer help in Religious and Bible Studies.
I look forward to working with anyone needing assistance in any of the aforementioned fields!

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Tutoring available for all aspects and forms of the French language: vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, etc., in both spoken and written French.
Tutoring in writing: happy to proofread papers, give advice, help with matters of grammar and style, explain difficult points, etc.
