Evan

I view tutoring as an opportunity to share my passion for languages, literature, and the law with my students. Using a student-centered approach, I aim to meet students where they are, develop a clear plan for their progress, and ensure they meet their goals. I use a variety of instructional techniques to engage with students of all different learning styles. While holding students accountable to their personally tailored goals, I also try to make learning enjoyable by exciting the intellectual curiosity of my students.

In terms of my language qualifications, I have received extensive training in language teaching techniques for both French and English as a Second Language. I was a French literature major who graduated cum laude and received highest honors for my senior thesis. I have spent hundreds of hours teaching English and French in classroom settings, and I bring all this experience to bear in my one-on-one tutoring sessions. I am prepared to help students of all levels improve their French and/or English language skills, from the fundamentals of reading, writing, speaking, and listening, to advanced grammar, composition, and cultural fluency.

As for test preparation, I draw on my personal success on the SAT (perfect verbal score of 800) and the LSAT (167/180, 94th percentile nationally) to provide insight on test-taking strategies and knowledge of specific content areas. I recognize the inherent stress involved in taking standardized tests under timed conditions, but I strive to empower my students to do their best on test day through diligent preparation beforehand, and by breaking down the seemingly overwhelming task into more manageable parts. It's a marathon, not a sprint!
