About Sydney

I am a French student and ESL tutor at the University of Southern Maine. In August 2013 I received my CELTA certificate in an intensive course at the International Language School of Montréal, in hopes of teaching ESL in various countries around the world. My goals include enhancing my French skills by living in a French speaking country for a short-term position of a year or less. In addition, I am an experienced nanny, musician, songwriter, and poet and I like to incorporate creativity into my work whenever possible.

I have a caring, empathetic approach to teaching and care-giving. I am especially looking forward to teaching ESL for adults and students. I am also interested in working with young people, age 4+.
