About Rebecca

I am a French-American bilingual student at Harvard University, and have taken college courses in French literature since my junior year in high school. My students may range from beginners in French to college students in a French literature course.

Teaching style: students may choose to reach complete fluency in reading, writing or speaking French, or may choose to focus the classes on one particular aspect of the language. In that case, I will work with you to plan a long-term goal as well as specific milestones we are expected to reach after every 2-3 weeks.

I also teach test prep in any type of French exam.
Some of my qualifications:

AP French Examination Score: 5
SAT French Language Score: 800

College Courses:
"Moliere et son monde": A
"De l'amour courtois au desir postmoderne": A+

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring middle school algebra for 3 years; it is one of my favorite subjects to tutor!

French

I am fully bilingual in French and English. I have dual citizenship (France and USA), and have spent four years of elementary education in a French-American school. I have taken college courses in French literature since junior year of high school. I am currently enrolled in Harvard French Literature Graduate Course.

Proofreading

In addition to being an English concentrator (major), I am a writer for the Crimson (newspaper) and have extensive experience editing and proofreading grammar, word choice, sentence structure, as well as overall paper organization of ideas.

SAT Math

My SAT score was a 2280/2400.

SAT Reading

SAT Reading: 780

SAT's Critical Reading section is by far the most challenging section to master as it seems less systematic than the writing or math section. However, there are specific strategies I will be able to teach you that will allow you to systematically attack each reading passage type of the SAT and maximize your accuracy on the questions asked.

SAT Writing

SAT Writing: 800

I am able to teach highly systematic and specific strategies for both the sentence completions and essay portion of the SAT.

Spanish

AP Spanish: 5
AP Spanish Literature: 5
