My work has involved extensive French translation, and I have tutored many people learning English as a second language. I also used to be a French tutor at the high school level.

Angela I am a constant learner with a passion for not only helping students achieve their highest potential academically, but also acquire some level of comfort, if not pleasure, from reading and writing. I thoroughly enjoy working with young people and find that the learning is always a two-way process when I interact with students.... I am always researching strategies and methods to help students connect with the subject matter and work through challenging assignments. I think building a good rapport with students is crucial to effective learning, so I take the time to get to know students and their non-academic interests and try to incorporate their interests and hobbies into tutoring practices, games, and drills. I try to make my tutoring sessions as enjoyable as possible.

Rachel ...teacher or tutor should serve as a facilitator of a student's learning process, rather than as a commander. I believe that the more independently a student can obtain a set of skills or degree of knowledge, the more able they are to master it for life. That being said, seeking guidance, assistance, and possibly structure when struggling with particular concepts and assignments is every bit a part of the independent learning process. It's cliche, but...
