About Camille

My name is Camille and I have a deep-seated love and knowledge of literature and would be delighted if I could lend any amount of my linguistic enthusiasm to the aid of a student. I received my Bachelor's degree from The University of Maryland in 3 1/2 years, English Literature with a concentration in British Literature. While I haven't had any formal in-house tutoring, I am currently training to become a TOFEL certified teacher. I am incredibly patient, flexible, and thorough. I've had experience working with children ages 5-12, teaching French in past summers at The Washington International School in D.C.. I will not hesitate to use textbooks and grammar books but I will work to make them easier to digest and instill aspects popular culture to otherwise dry texts. For example, if a student were having issues with Shakespearean language, I might design a translation exercise, where a favorite song or movie dialogue from modern times could be re-written in Shakespearean language. I prefer to take a student-centered approach and teach with a top-down methodology, usually applied in foreign language, where students use background information to predict meaning in a text. I would structure lessons based on the individual likes and dislikes, formatting areas of improvement in an engaging and entertaining way.
