About Connie

Bonjour and Hello,

End the struggle, and expect a miracle.

As a 5-star tutor with over 140 hours at WyzAnt and hundreds of hours with other sources, I can assure quality to fit your needs––whether you're young or young-at-heart. If it's help you need with FRENCH, ACT English, TOEFL, I can help!

I hold a B.A. in English Education with Minors in French and Library Science with an M.S.W. Master of Social Work. Thirteen years of experience teaching French, classroom English and ACT test preparation, I have fine-tuned my skills.

Contact me right away if you need help with classroom French or if you’re planning a trip to a French-speaking country. I taught French in the LSU Foreign Language Department and travelled extensively in France where I immersed myself in the language and culture. And finally, I lived with a French couple and received the highest rating in pronunciation, reading, and writing of European French.

As a retired teacher and social worker, I take pride in putting my students at ease and fostering self-confidence in a relaxed setting. Learning means goal-setting and follow-through, but it should be fun too.

As a native English speaker, I am also experienced helping students pass the TOEFL.

Your first lesson is 100% guaranteed by WyzAnt, if you are not satisfied you receive a full refund. I also offer a free half-hour introductory meeting face-to-face.

You can reach me at my WyzAnt Mail account. There's nothing to lose.

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. 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.

ACT English

As a former English teacher with years of experience and a retired licensed social worker, I believe developing a student's confidence goes a long way toward success.

Because the ACT carries so much weight, students are often intimidated by it. The English portion of the ACT––English, Reading Comprehension, and Composition––counts for more than any other subject tested.

Therefore, I use the Kaplan Test Prep method. Kaplan has been proven the world leaders in test preparation for more than 70 years. Success comes from two techniques:

* using the right strategies and tools to succeed
* using the most personalized approach to
meet individual student's needs

I make certain to create a supportive learning environment, so your child has the best chance of experience learning as fun and effective.

Elementary Science

Technically, science is a system of acquiring knowledge which uses observation and experimentation to describe and explain natural phenomena.

But that doesn't mean studying science has to be hard, scary, or uninteresting.

I use many fun and effective ways to help your child enjoy scientific learning and increase individual confidence.

English

When many of us think of English class, we fear that dreaded red pen and tedious grammar rules. No worries. I'm prepared with a bag of tricks to banish these concerns.

So, what is English as a subject? In short, the study of English includes four parts: literature, grammar, composition, and speech.

Literature is the study of reading/analyzing/enjoying stories, poem, and other written works. Grammar is the study of the mechanics and usage of the language. Composition is the study of writing stories, poems, reports, and other written forms. It also includes how to do research. Speech is the study of preparing announcements and presentations.

As a retired social worker and teacher, I believe developing a student's self-esteem and confidence, goes a long way toward success. I love to create a supportive learning environment, so your child has the best chance of experience learning as fun.

ESL/ESOL

Learning a foreign language can seem fun––not a chore. I do my best to make students comfortable, and I let students know that I'm hoping for their success.

I am an experienced and qualified tutor who likes people. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English Education and have taught over ten years. I also hold a Masters of Social Work with 18 years of experience, so I have good people skills and know how to help someone who is anxious about success.

I look forward to helping you help yourself in a relaxed, yet effective way.

French

Bonjour,

End the struggle. Expect a miracle. Or get ready for your trip to a French-speaking country.

I hold a B.A. in English Education with two minors in FRENCH and Library Science. As a graduate intern at Louisiana State University, I studied graduate level French classes and taught French in the university.

During my extensive travels in France, I immersed myself in French speech daily. Finally, living with a French couple for one year, sealed the deal for me. Now I consider myself a well-rounded French tutor.

I accept students who are seven years old and upward.

People say I am easy to talk with, patient, and effective. My passion for teaching is contagious.

Careful to create a supportive learning environment, I can assure the best chance of experiencing learning as fun as well.

I offer a free planning meeting, and your first class is 100% guaranteed.

Grammar

Grammar is the study of the way the sentences of a language are constructed.

Phonics

Phonics is a highly successful method of teaching reading. It involves understanding how letters and sounds go together.

It also teaches how to break down words into syllables (parts) and how to recognize which syllable is accented in speech.

Armed with these skills, your child can become an independent "word detective" by learning how to "sound out" a written word to know how to pronounce it.

As a retired social worker and teacher, I believe developing a child's self-esteem and confidence, goes a long way toward success. I create a supportive learning environment, so your child has the best chance of experience learning as fun.

Proofreading

Proofreading involves combing through a work looking for any glitches. These include spaces, punctuation, spelling. This can involve comparing the final marked copy with the final trail print.

Spelling

Spelling matters––no matter what subject or task is involved.

Did you know computer spell check programs often overlook misspelled words?

Without the correct formation of letters to form words, writing can be unclear leading to confusion about the topic involved.

Besides, good spelling skills are a great way to let others know you are well-educated and sincere.

But, learning spelling doesn't have to be boring. I use many fun ways to improve your spelling skills.

TOEFL

As a non-native speaker of English, studying in English at the college level can be very challenging. It's easy to feel lost and anxious.

I am an experienced and well-qualified tutor who understands these stresses. I do my best to put people at ease and encourage success. Learning can and should be fun––not a chore.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English Education and a Masters of Social Work.

Vocabulary

The set of words within a language that are familiar to a person. Ability to communicate clearly.

Writing

Writing includes building sentences, developing paragraphs, and composing essays.
