About Francis

As someone who comes from a family of educators, I can attest to the importance of fostering a love and appreciation for learning. I have extensive experience in teaching English language and literature in both a primary and secondary school setting, and have worked with students with broad and varying academic needs. I hold a B.A. and an M.A. in English, and have received top academic awards at both institutions. I specialize in American and British Literature, cultural and literary theory, reading comprehension, and oral/written communication.

My primary objective is to create an environment where students feel both supported and challenged. Whether it is working with a student's specific curricular requirements, test preparation, writing skills and techniques, or tailoring individualized study, my hope is to set clear, attainable goals and allow each student to take ownership of their successes.

Given the nature of my schedule, my availability is limited to weeknights and weekends. Because of this, I have a two hour cancellation policy, and am always willing to reschedule a lesson. I also offer a free consultation meeting and am open to working in a location convenient for the student.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success!

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.
