Boston University (French Lang and Lit)
Stony Brook University (Other)
I'm a Boston University graduate with a degree in French Language and Literature and International Relations. I'm also a current Post-baccalaureate student at Stony Brook University, pursuing my pre-medical studies.
I have vast experience tutoring students of different ages in French, through both traditional and non-traditional means. I was President of the French Cultural Society at BU, and devoted my 3 years as a member to spread the love of French culture through tutoring and other means. I believe language is meant to be learned through fun methods and applied realistically, allowing your interest in and appreciation of the language and culture to grow.
As of this fall, I will also be extending my tutoring to introductory biology and general chemistry students! Rates for college students may be negotiable based on radius and personal situation.

I contacted Niely because of her impressive background and proximity to our home when my HS son's French III grades fell and were hovering just above an F. Her love of the language and of French culture was infectious. Within three weeks my son scored a 93 on his next French test and wound up pulling his average up to a solid B+ for the semester, which allowed him to remain on his school's "A" Honor Roll. We both looked forward to her weekly visit, which definitely made the difference in my son's focus on the subject matter, preparation for classes, quizzes and test results. We communicated easily by email, which Niely used to send me links to worksheets she set up for my son when she was away on vacation overseas. I recommend her highly to anyone seeking a French tutor at any level.
Thank you, Tim! I'm glad I was able to help!
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.
