About Caylena

I've worked both in small groups and one on one with students, helping them to improve test scores, language speaking ability and to better understand the concepts in their course material. I have taught French high school students individually and in groups, helping them to better understand and speak English. I taught American college students French 101 and worked individually with college students (as my peers) in elementary Spanish, French and Photography.

I speak French fluently after having spent time immersed in the language and culture in France. I spent over a year in France and have a Bachelors in French. Many of the French people I knew were surprised at my level, and I've even done business in French here in the States. I have a Bachelors in French and in Photography, and can help you achieve the levels you wish in these subject areas. I can also assist with English as a second language.

I am a professional photographer with a B.S. in photography. My work has been featured in regional and national publications. I teach the fundamentals of photography, such as manual exposure, the zone system, composition, lighting, posing, Photoshop and Lightroom, etc.

If you're interested in learning more about working together or how I can help you, please reach out and let's talk.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

French

After studying French as a foreign language for 10 years, obtaining a Bachelors in the language, living and working in France, I am a fluent speaker. (I've even done business in French, had to deal with cell phone contracts, immigration/visas (in French), renting, and daily life all in French. )

I've tutored students at various levels individually and in small groups in French and English (ESL to French students). First I start with a goal in mind - what is the reason you are learning the language or what do you want to get from it?

When it comes to languages, it's really about a tool for expression and understanding. When a student is able to express themselves - even in rudimentary ways - and understand something they've read or heard in another language, the feeling is unreal. I know because I've been there. It's so cool to be able to communicate in another language and I want to help others be able to do the same.

Photography

I am a professional photographer. I've worked in the industry for 5 years, have done several art shows (in groups and solo), and have a Bachelors in photography from Ithaca College.
