I am committed to serving others and guaranteeing the success of my students. My passion is helping those in need and alleviating struggle, especially with academics! I especially love working with the French language.
I have just completed a Bachelor of Arts in French from Belmont University and am pursuing teaching opportunities related to this degree. I also spent a semester in Angers, France, completing classes at the University located there. I primarily focused on translation, which is one of my favorite things to do with French. I have been lucky enough to get to travel extensively around Europe, which has greatly enriched my language abilities. I have tutored French for two years and have even instructed an adult French course. I love sharing this language with others and helping others understand its many complexities!
I am a great test taker and have scored very highly on the ACT, SAT, and AP French exams. I also have completed several upper level English Literature and Writing courses, which qualifies me to aid with literature analysis, essay construction, and other writing struggles. Having studied a foreign language for more than ten years, I am very attuned to the English language as well.
My teaching style primarily includes a lot of visual presentation, and putting knowledge into practice through questions and activities. I am constantly striving to adapt my teaching methods for all students.
My availability is very flexible, so please contact me even if your schedule doesn't appear to work with mine.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy of teaching is not only that every student can learn, but that every student can find interest in what they are learning. Even though a particular subject may not seem related to your life, learning enriches your experiences in magnificent ways. I strive to find those things that interest students hidden in subjects that they may struggle with or not find interest in. This practice enables better, more fun learning!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session with a student, I would immediately find out what a student does and does not understand. Finding what the student DOES understand brings an immediate sense of success to our tutoring session. Also, isolating specifically what the student does NOT understand fine tunes the lesson. Through these practices, I find the best way to structure and organize my tutoring sessions so my students always find success and understanding.
