After growing up in an academic family and graduating from college with a major in Latin, I went to Paris, where for several years I taught English and translated articles for academics. Following shorter stays in Italy and Spain, I returned to the States, enrolling in graduate school and ultimately receiving a Ph.D. degree in comparative literature. During my graduate studies, I returned to Paris on several exchange programs.
Lessons with me can help you improve your speaking, writing and reading skills for work, school or personal reasons. I can be especially helpful to anyone having difficulty with writing papers or grasping a professor's approach towards any topic involving literature, history, or other topics in the liberal arts.
I tutored English for several years in Paris. I am a published author and I have also proofread and copy-edited scholarly books and articles. In addition to tutoring, I am available for editing, translating, and correcting letters and other texts.
During my seven years in Paris and in the course of earning my higher degree in comparative literature in the States, I have developed an in-depth knowledge of French and, more broadly, European literature and intellectual history.
I am generally available for tutoring every day from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. except Thursday, and I can travel to students. My base rate is $65/hour. Contact me for more details. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!
