Knox College, Galesburg, Il (Psychology, French)
I am a Knox college graduate with a passion for teaching and tutoring. I am fluent in French, and have had extensive experience tutoring French, English, as well as teaching English as a second language. I am able to meet students at their level and help them progress in ways that are often difficult in a classroom setting. I love working one-on-one with students, or in small groups helping out with areas of difficulty. If you are struggling with reading, writing, French, or a combination of these subjects, I would love to help you out by working slowly through these areas of difficulty. I spent my junior year of college in a small town in France called Besançon and during this time I not only became fluent in French, but I was able to experience French culture by living with a French family, learning about french traditions and daily life. Therefore, for students who are interested in french culture and travel in general, I am able to not only help achieve their goals of becoming fluent, but I am also able to help them learn more about the culture and the experience of being in another country.
In addition, I am a certified tutor of adult literacy, recognized by the international organization Proliteracy Worldwide. Through this high-level training, I learned many different techniques to teach both children and adults how to improve whatever area of english they are working on. I have tutored throughout all four year of my college career, working with a national organization, Reading Buddies, to help children learn how to improve their reading skills. I have also worked with adults who are struggling with reading and writing to help improve their overall comprehension and skill-set. I have seen huge improvements in all of my students and have greatly enjoyed helping them become more confident and comfortable with the material.

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.
