"I tutored students in French for three years at Carthage College. I realized that there is a deeper structure to the French language that isn't clearly taught in French classes. The basic structure of the French language is taught later than it needs to be. I also learned that many of the trickier concepts are not always explained as clearly as they need to be for students, who often have to work on all of these concepts themselves. Since then, I've tried to find an easy and concise way of explaining patterns and rules in French that make sense." ...

"I can remember being a student in elementary school and having those moments of feeling completely and utterly lost. Some of the best academic memories I have are of teachers who really took the time to break down a subject until I really felt confident about it.
