ExperienceI am fluent in English, French, and Spanish, and have had a good deal of success tutoring students in each of these subjects, along with math. I've also assisted students as they prepare for standardized tests such as the ACT or SAT, among others. When I work with a student on a new language, I help them take the overwhelming idea of learning a whole new language, and break it down into small, easily accomplished tasks. I do the same sort of thing when I tutor writing. I help the student focus on each point they are trying to make, and the arguments that go with it, developing a structure that practically writes the paper by itself. By doing so much work before actually writing, by the time it comes to actually write the paper, the student has overcome their fear, because they know exactly what they're going to say. I also enjoy working with students towards becoming successful in their critical thinking skills, who can study a subject from different sides, and develop well-informed decisions of their own that they can back up their opinions. In my spare time, I am interested in music, especially woodwinds and percussion, and in the circus.
