I am a licensed teacher seeking tutoring opportunities to encourage others through their learning journey while broadening my own skills. Originally from France, I have been groomed by a variety of teachers, experiences, and cultures, molding me into an easily adaptable instructor.
During my undergraduate education from Liberty University, I majored in International Relations and minored in history, providing me with the perfect background to then get my Masters of Arts in Teaching: Secondary Education (Social Studies track) from Liberty University as well. I have considered getting my doctorate, but I think I may stop here educationally. I have been able to start tutoring locally for homework help at the middle school level and French classes at the college level. Since I grew up in France, I am fluent both in French and English.
I am able to tutor most subjects from the middle school level down; social studies at most levels; and French at most levels. I can also provide essay writing help because of my extensive writing training in college. My favorite subjects to tutor are any social studies and writing. I love both extensively and was able to place this love into action during my college education by conducting historical research, writing about it, and presenting my topics at regional and national conferences.
My teaching philosophy is mainly based on my long-term goal for my students: to become an independent learners, secure in their own knowledge because of the investment placed in their education. Ownership of one's education is so crucial to both being successful and feeling confident about one's knowledge.
In my free time, I love riding and taking care of horses and animals in general. I also love photography, crafts, and writing.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I encourage students to seek the answers and understand the reasoning behind the correct answer.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
First session should be the most fun! It's a time to get to know each other, establish learning goals, and determine any background knowledge.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Helping a student become an independent learner is one of my foremost goals and fits right in with my teaching philosophy: the best learners are those who are motivated enough to seek the answers and who come to understand the reasoning behind the correct answers.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
A major key to staying motivated is always remembering the target goals.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Practice, practice, practice! I would also attempt to help them find new, different ways to look at the skill or concept.
