Lena

I am a graduate of the University of Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature. I am passionate about language fluency and, after college, spent a year abroad in Besançon, France where I taught English in French middle and high schools, and privately tutored adults one-on-one. I tutor a range of subjects in the language arts including English literature, reading, and writing, and am most passionate about working with students to improve their French. As learning a language involves developing a host of different skills, I approach teaching French holistically, treating grammar, reading, writing, listening and speaking with equal importance. My goal is always to transform what is confusing and frustrating into something fun and rewarding for my students. Students especially love attempting French tongue-twisters -- the more difficult, the more fun they are to tackle! In my free time, I love cooking for friends, reading, running, skiing, drawing, and hanging out with my cat, Marlon.
