Jacqui

I'm from Charleston, South Carolina. I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2014 with a major in Psychology and a minor in Theater. I was fortunate enough to study abroad twice in college: in Rome, I honed my Italian, while in London, I studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. I'm passionate about literature and language in all its forms--anything from theatre to magazine journalism to foreign films. I write freelance for several publications, and love a well-written novel.I admit that I'm a bit of a nerd and love standardized tests--I'd love to show you how taking tests can be fun!

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in guiding students towards making discoveries of their own!

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

It's important to establish a rapport, so I'd get to know the student and his/her hobbies/interests. Academically, I'd ask their perceived weaknesses and strengths, as well as try to identify those that stand out to me.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I always try to explain things in innovative ways, depending on a student's learning style. Diagrams or pictures may be useful for a more visual learner, but physical manipulation of objects might be more beneficial to a tactile learner.
