I love the look of satisfaction that spreads across a student's face when they master a new skill. Teaching is a creative challenge in which the most important part is to inspire a love of learning. I always make my lesson plans personal, with the needs and interests of the individual in mind. My areas of expertise are in French, Russian, Reading, College Essay Writing, History and Literature.
I started learning French when I was seven years old, and continued it through high school. I have done a six-month intensive French exchange in Switzerland, where no English was spoken. I have also volunteered in France on several organic farms. I love to travel and learn new languages and cultures so I tackled Russian in college. I spent a month in Siberia and a semester in St. Petersburg. My degree is in Art History, and so I also have extensive experience in writing papers. I remember the challenges of writing college essays, book reports, and term papers, and feel confident I can help any student in this area.
