I am a graduate from Baylor University, located in Waco, Texas. I received a Bachelor of Arts in French as well as in International Studies. I tutored many of my colleagues during my time at Baylor. I also volunteered my time as a tutor at the local middle school while I was in high school. I tutor in French, a subject I am incredibly passionate about. I initially studied French to get in touch with my French heritage and fell in love with francophone cultures, literature, and more recently, linguistics. I enjoy tutoring in French not only because of my personal enjoyment of the subject, but also because I understand all of the advantages of being proficient in a foreign language. Not only does learning a foreign language allow the ability to communicate with thousands of people in their native or socio-political tongue, but it also allows people to think and learn in an engaging way that is unique to language. There is a mix of patterns as well as abstract thought, working different areas of the brain. The idea of tutoring a subject that has so many complexities and benefits truly excites me. As a tutor, I generally have two goals. First and foremost, I provide individual attention to the pupil according to their individual learning style(s) and needs. I also tend to teach material in a way that will assist them in future lessons, primarily by revealing patterns rather than stressing memorization. Additionally, I recognize the reality of a student needing to improve their grades. My technique to improve grades involves a review of past tests and homework to develop an understanding of the teacher’s primary learning goals. This also helps me to get an idea of a pupil’s thought processes. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, baking, and traveling both around the world and around this amazing country, both for business and for pleasure.
