Bio

My name is Thalia B., and I graduated from Macalester College in May 2012. I have experience tutoring students of all ages and levels. I was a Theatre Major because I have always been truly passionate about the arts, performance especially. I always have a creative project in the works!

My name is Thalia B., and I graduated from Macalester College in May 2012. I have experience tutoring students of all ages and levels. I was a Theatre Major because I have always been truly passionate about the arts, performance especially. I always have a creative project in the works! I have written short novels, created solo performance pieces, and made fun masks. While I was abroad in Paris, I was trained in physical performance - this included mime, acrobatics, trapeze, and classic dance. My mother is French and my father is American, so we lived in France for the first seven years of my life before moving to the United States. I decided to be a French Minor at Macalester College in order to further my french fluency, both written and orally. My work acting, singing, and dancing in plays in the local Twin Cities Theatre scene has taught me values and important lessons in communication, presence, and fun. These are values I bring to my tutoring - I am as engaged in teaching as I am in learning. I love to pass on my passion for learning, the arts, and french culture to students who have passions of their own and are finding their place in the world. I adore working with students, and making the learning experience fun and engaging!

As a fluent french speaker since birth, French is my first language. I lived in Paris for six years, and studied abroad there for 6 months last year. I have completed a French and Francophone Studies minor at Macalester College. I am an expert in oral, conversational french, and equally trained in writing, grammar, spelling, pronunciation, history, and culture. Additionally, I specifically study the history of french theatre (from the Middle ages to Contemporary), and Parisian women's literature. I have done translation work, mostly translating french texts into English versions.

Prepared and patient tutor

Thalia worked with us for a couple of years. Each week, she did a great job building concepts and content (ensuring review before add new items). She did a great job meeting us where our skill levels were and using games to increase learning and retention. She always had a positive attitude, was patient, and is very reliable. A great tutor!

Fantastic tutor!

Thalia is very knowledgeable and an excellent tutor! She is very patient and thorough and I highly recommend her! She is teaching me the basics to help me prepare for an upcoming trip to Paris and I couldn't be happier!

Patient - easy to learn with Thalia

Thalia is very patient and knowledgeable. She always brings something to our tutoring session to help me see and understand what I am learning. I really appreciate her positive energy.

Nancy, 4 lessons with Thalia

Impressed after first lesson

My 16 yr old daughter needed to brush up on her French after learning from a couple of different methods. Thalia was able to assess her ability level/areas of improvement and immediately dug in. My daughter rally enjoyed the hour and is enthusiastic about continuing.

Heidi, 24 lessons with Thalia

An Outstanding Tutor

I cannot recommend Thalia high enough. She is a very talented and knowledgeable tutor. My ability and confidence in French have soared after less than one year of lessons with her. Look no further if you are in need of a great tutor in French. Thank you Thalia!

Assen, 81 lessons with Thalia

Excellent first lesson!

We are working to refresh my memory and also learn new things. We reviewed vocabulary and conjugation of present tense verbs, and started Passe' Compose'. It was extremely helpful!

Cristine, 6 lessons with Thalia

Great session!

I'm learning a lot. It is great to use the vocabulary in a conversation. This will get me ready for high school French.

Conner, 9 lessons with Thalia

Wonderful instruction.

Thalia was exceptionally patient and kind in guiding me to appropriate words and their pronunciations. Her non-judgmental and supportive teaching style has me wanting to fit as much as possible into each session. Just excellent.

Provided our Sophomore who with superb all-around help in English, French and History

Last August we were looking for just the right tutor/motivator for our girl, M, who was beginning sophomore year and had struggled to maintain a C- average in freshman year. While she tested average or above-average in most areas, she "hated school and homework" and also had trouble concentrating on areas she wasn't interested in. Thalia met with M. weekly on Mondays for the entire school year and occasionally extra days. For M, it was a great way to start out the week as it got her back in the groove. Thalia was able to help her tackle difficult readings from IB History, English and French by helping her "break down" the overwhelming whole into smaller pieces. M has a tendency to give up at the first obstacle and Thalia has a gift for keeping things moving so it was a good match. Thalia also sensed when it was time to take a short break from the lessons. Of course Thalia's being a native speaker of French and having lived in Paris was an added bonus which has motivated M to travel there after high school. In addition to her tutoring skills, Thalia is a very interesting and accomplished young woman and our girl felt at ease with her from day one. Finally, M fared much better in her sophomore year and we attribute a great deal of her success to her tutoring with Thalia. We're hoping to build on that in her Junior year.

Thalia makes learning French lots of fun!

Great at getting us to converse and makes learning lots of fun! Thalia keeps us on track with learning tenses, vocabulary, etc but plans in plenty of time for conversation also!
