About Betsy

Hi! I am a graduate from Aquinas College with a degree in French. I minored in English and Studio Art (Photography) as well. I have my teacher certification for French and English and I love to teach. I love the French language and culture and was able to study abroad in Angers, France in 2011 for four months. I am a Canadian native and spent my elementary years in French immersion. Because of French immersion, the French language has been a part of my life for about 18 years. I have tutored high school and college students in French in the past and it is a lot fun! I think games and activities are a lot of fun and I think it is important that I act as a guide to students so that they can discover the answers on their own.

I have also assistant taught at the high school level in photography and a drawing and painting class, and I have taught art history lessons. I also have experience tutoring in reading and writing and using a variety of methods in note-taking for comprehension. Each tutee has their own learning style and therefore I think it is important to teach them in a way that will help them succeed.

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.


I minored in photography at Aquinas College and took four courses in photography there. I used both film cameras and digital cameras in my courses. I did several photography projects during this time and developed in black and white and well as printing digitally. I spent 10 weeks assistant teaching in a photography class and gave lessons on how to compose photos and the history of photography.
