"I also worked as an environmental science teacher in Benin, West Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer. In Benin I had my own daily class of 18-25-year-olds for whom I developed my own curriculum tailored to their needs. I also started a critical thinking club for elementary and early high school students that generated a lot of enthusiasm. Finally, I have been tutoring with Varsity Tutors for a while and have had many satisfied clients. I am currently working for an environmental nonprofit here in DC; I love to sing and play guitar, go to concerts, watch science fiction TV shows and read whatever I can." ...

" I enjoy working with students on French, writing skills, essay editing, American History, LSAT prep, middle school math, geography, government and organizational skills. I treat each student individually, and tailor our sessions to his or her learning styles, and aspirations (and of course, those of their parents). If as a team, we can achieve the goals we set, and enhance the student’s enjoyment and mastery of their unique learning process, I will have done my job. I look forward to working with you and your child. ."

" The underlying, essential goal in teaching the French language is to establish in my students an ongoing interest and desire to learn. There is never a reason to get embarrassed or ashamed. I am here to help and motivate you! If there is a desire, there is a way!."

"While I'm well versed in French, I'm also well versed in teaching as I'm finishing up my Masters in Secondary Education (M.Ed) in May 2013. I am patient, approachable and I work hard to break down difficult grammar concepts so that they make sense. I strive to make students feel comfortable to be able to speak the language as well (and be able to USE the grammar learned in class to create language!) Bon courage !."

"Because I love learning, I look for ways to transmit my passions to others by teaching them. Another reason I enjoy tutoring lies in my own experience as a student. I had to work very hard for the grades it took to get to college, so I understand the problems of the struggling student, and I try my best to relate the methods I personally used to overcome those obstacles. I've tutored high school-level Chemistry and Algebra as well as SAT prep, but I also have an extensive background in Spanish and French and am very familiar with Biology, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus, among other subjects. In my free time, I enjoy reading, yoga, and catching up with ...

Finally, for the past two summers I have worked at the extremely rigorous Breakthrough Collaborative Teaching Internship at their Miami, Florida location teaching 5th and 6th grade science, where I a was again responsible for my own lesson plans, classwork, homework and quizzes. I am very interested in working with Varsity Tutors as I absolutely love working with children, especially in a teaching capacity.

"I am currently serving as a private French and Spanish teacher for preschool children. Prior to that, I was living in France and working as an elementary school and high-school English teacher. I must admit that anything having to do with languages, reading and writing is my official strong suite. So, what makes me a great tutor? Patience, a lighthearted nature, and dedication to each and every student's individual success.."
