Hello! I tutor in a multitude of subjects such as French, GRE test prep, Political Science & Government, and Film Studies. I currently teach French at a university and have tutored students in the other subjects. I received dual Bachelor's degrees in French and Political Science and I am currently working on my Master's degree in French.
When I'm not tutoring, I enjoy playing tennis, trying new restaurants, and watching new films.
