I am excited to tutor because I know what it feels like to get stuck and I'm happy to help people who encounter challenges in their studies. Though frustrating, there's something really valuable about these moments when you're not quite getting it. It means that by proceeding slowly and practicing a new concept or strategy you'll learn a new skill that will stick with you even more because it took some work to master. My focus in teaching is in French and, more broadly, language arts. I studied French Literature at New York University because of my passion for literature, creativity, and expression. Learning a new language opens up more than just a new literary world but also lets you tap into another set of human experiences, expression, emotion, history. I think the greatest reward in teaching French and language arts is helping a student connect with a text and gain access to someone else's experience, what someone else thought important enough to write down, and then how this connection can help reframe the reader's thinking - deepening, challenging, or shifting the ways our own thought. Apart from the study and appreciation of literature, learning a language at a linguistic level is invaluable. It promotes human connection, openness of thought, and pushes one's own capacity and diversity of self-expression.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I don't think teaching should be condescending or establish a hierarchy between teacher and student. It should be a collaborative effort in exploring a new concept together, unique to the pace and existing skill set of the learner.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

A typical first session is about getting acquainted with the student and identifying how they learn. This means testing out different teaching strategies to illustrate the concept they're having difficulty with.
