As a man of French-Canadian descent, I have always done two things, speak french, and play hockey. Whether growing up as a young boy in Maryland or as a teenager in California, my french-canadian mother always emphasized speaking french at home. That emphasis has been the basis for my academic career ever since. After graduating with a Bachelors in French from Sonoma, I felt it was time to take a step back and figure out a meaningful and gainful form of employment which could bring me the satisfaction I want at the end of the day. With Varsity Tutors, I believe I will find this satisfaction by fostering academic growth for your student/s. I have tutored before, whether privately or with a group of students, and I have found that through proper motivation and focus, students can achieve their desired goals. I believe that my abilities as a tutor not only foster such motivation and focus in my particular domain of interest, French, but also in other fields of academics as well and hopefully throughout their life. That is my goal as your tutor.
