##### About Gretchen

I am interested in being there for your child and to be a friendly face they can trust and have fun working with! I have always most enjoyed my time working with children, though it was always part-time and on the side. I am new to the Matthews, NC area and am looking to help new students! I have been tutoring regularly for 5 years but tutored many times before that for students that were my mom's - she was an elementary school teacher. I grew up knowing all of my school's teachers because of that and stayed very involved with my elementary school years after I left. After college and working abroad, I was a substitute teacher for a few years for my school and others. I substitute taught for elementary school English classes as well as French classes for a French Immersion program, teaching grades K-6. I also substitute taught High School ESOL classes. My passion is with elementary school aged children, and helping them with homework to improve comprehension in all subjects. This includes helping with test-prep. I have had teachers that I substitute taught for or who have seen results in some of their students I tutored recommended me to students of theirs.

That being said I am also a French tutor. I studied French all my life and went through the French Immersion program in Elementary school, graduating to more advanced classes in Middle and High Schools. I majored in French in college and studied abroad in Lyon. I have a passion for France and the language! I co-taught several French camps through various summers that focused on kids maintaining their French language as well as doing French activities to make it fun!
