Hello! I completed my undergraduate career at the top of my class with a degree in French and math. I then pursued graduate studies in French literature, here in the U.S., as well as in France and Switzerland. I also received training in teaching French as a Foreign Language. For the past eighteen years, I have taught Middle and Upper School in the Princeton and Boston areas. My courses have ranged from beginning French to advanced electives in French literature and history, and from Algebra I to offerings within the Honors track. What I have most enjoyed during my career is the opportunity to have small classes and to work one-on-one with students outside of class. I look to bring the same energy to my tutoring sessions. My interest in both the humanities and math / sciences allows me to present information to students from various angles, depending on their particular strengths.

I studied math as an undergraduate and have ten years' experience as a Middle School math teacher and Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth teaching assistant. I firmly believe that every student can succeed in math and am dedicated to helping make this happen. I focus on building on what students already know and link concepts to their interests and that which is relevant to them. I am methodical in my explanations and aim for comprehension rather than mere rote memorization. I am also patient and will work with students to find the angle and approach best suited for their learning style.

I have over twenty years' experience as a French teacher. With graduate degrees in French Literature as well as Teaching French as a Foreign Language, I can assist both students who are just starting out with the language and those wishing to perfect their French or to explore France's rich history and literature. I have lived in France and Switzerland and now spend a month each year in France, so as to stay up-to-date with today's France. As such, I can offer students the classical French of textbooks and the slang of today's youths.

I hold undergraduate and graduate degrees in literature and have taught High School literature over the past ten years. I am familiar with the major authors and literary movements of the 14th to 20th centuries, both in Europe and closer to home. This allows me to offer students a broader context for the particular works they may be reading and to help them relate to the works on an individual level. In my courses, I emphasize close reading and, as such, have much experience teaching students how to annotate, recognize important themes, develop an argument, and write clearly.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like to learn more about my training or pedagogical approach. I look forward to hearing from you and will respond promptly.

Wonderful tutor!!!

My 8th grader is so excited about math because of Nhu. After each lesson, she will review her work again and gets so excited that she is learning so much. She said Nhu makes her understand and she likes the way she teaches. Thank you Nhu for bringing her confidence back.

Bright, intuitive and kind!

We just met Nhu and already love her. She is everything a parent and student could want in a tutor. We feel luck to have found her!
