I’m currently an MA student in French at Middlebury College, after graduating with my BA from Barnard College at Columbia University in 2014. Overseas, I spent a year at the Sorbonne-Paris. I’m a passionate, patient tutor of both English and French with four years of experience. In both languages, I focus on grammar skills, essay writing, and standardized test preparation, especially the SAT and SAT II. I most often tutor high school and college students, but have found that young children are also some of my favorite to teach! I have additional experience with ESL students and those with learning disabilities, including dyslexia, ADHD and cognitive impairments. Language arts are a true passion of mine, both academically and professionally. As a bilingual writer for the State Department and two publishing companies, I've learned effective writing skills I love to share with students. I believe that each individual learns differently, so I tailor my teaching strategies to every student’s needs. Seeing students overcome challenges and meet their goals is always the highlight of my day. When I’m not tutoring, I’m an avid film photographer and an enthusiastic yoga amateur.
