About Francesca

For nearly 5 years now I have tutored friends, family and classmates in English and in writing, and I am now looking to extend my skills to others who might be in need of help in these areas. I was fortunate enough to be raised in a writer's household. My mother is an editor, my father a screenwriter, and thanks to their encouragement and support, I felt compelled to begin refining my writing skills at a very young age. They helped me to understand how important it is to establishing a sense of confidence in academic and work places, as well as in more personal atmospheres. I've always had a knack for perceiving people's personal preferences as far as teaching methods are concerned, and I find that this flexibility helps to create a comfortable and effective learning environment. Last fall I enrolled as an English major at Brooklyn College. Prior to attending this program, I graduated from Bard High School Early College in Manhattan, which is where I achieved my Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts.

I am very patient, and I am a strong believer in time management; clear communication and an open dialogue are crucial here, and I have found that the two together result in a great deal of time saved. I am happy to provide support in any and all areas within my expertise, as well as guidance in stress-reduction and test-taking tactics. In my opinion, it is equally as important for one to feel confident at home with their material, as it is in the classroom. I take a special interest in helping my students to devise strong theses, from which they can structure strong papers--this is where I excel. I am extremely attentive to detail in grammar, punctuation, and word choice, though do what I can to encourage students to edit their work independently. I have experience in tutoring children between the ages of 5 and 19, grades k-12, and have mentored peers who are my own age through my former school's student-mentoring program. In addition to in-school reading and essay assignments, I am available for college essay review and guidance. As previously mentioned, time management is a must; designing a working schedule for independent studies, extra-curriculars, and school-related commitments is something I will require of my students--organization is vital!

I am available Wednesday evenings, Thursdays, Fridays, and some Saturdays in-person. I am contactable over the phone via text and email at all times, and will accept calls in the cases of academic/stress-related emergencies.
