I am currently a student at the University of Oklahoma who has a minor in French and plans on obtaining my Bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and then my Master's degree in Speech Language Pathology. It is my passion to work with kids and to help them not only gain self-confidence, but to also improve their quality of life. My love for helping kids as well as my love for the French language are the main reasons I became a tutor. I am fluent in French and have have been learning the language since I was five years old. I attended an elementary school with an immersion program, where I learned everything in French. I am also able to speak the language at home with my mother who is a French teacher. The French language has provided me with so many opportunities that I want to be able to give back to other students.
When it comes to my experience I have been tutoring since I was in the 5th grade. I started off in a tutoring program where I helped 1st graders learn to read French. Since then I have tutored kids ranging from 5 years old to students in college. Whether it is helping someone with basic grammar or teaching them how to analyze French literature, I have helped students through it all. One thing that sets me apart from most tutors is that I have recently been in the shoes of the student. I understand the curriculum that is being taught because I recently had to learn it myself. I am also still taking French courses, so I get to use my knowledge on a regular basis.
As a tutor it is important to me that students enjoy learning French. It is a beautiful language and being tutored should not be something students dread. My goal is to make each session fun and interactive so that my students don't have to sit there and listen to me speak for the full session. If a child enjoys doing something, they will put in more work and retain more of the information. I will adjust my methods for each individual student because not everyone learns in the same way or at the same speed. I hope to provide insight and knowledge into the French language as well inspire students to pursue French in their futures by showing them all the amazing opportunities knowing another language can provide.
