ExperienceI'm an experienced tutor with a special interest in teaching test preparation and foreign languages. I have tutored several subjects at an after-school program on the high school level, including calculus, organic chemistry, English grammar, and Spanish literature. I have done private tutoring in Advanced Placement test prep, SAT prep, and French. I'm a native French speaker, and I enjoy teaching foreign languages because knowing a foreign language makes possible richer and deeper communication between people.I enjoy tutoring test preparation most of all because it's so gratifying to see the learning process' measurable results. When I can help a student to score a few points higher on a standardized test, that score may translate into improved chances for college admissions and/or enhanced scholarship offers. I find tutoring very rewarding because it's an opportunity to customize learning for an individual, making the educational process more personal. In the typical classroom of, say, one teacher and twenty students, instruction is much less individualized and often less successful. My tutoring approach involves using positive encouragement, practice problems, whiteboards, and repetition to develop problem-solving skills and mastery in my students.I am in my first year at Brown University, where I plan to major in cognitive neuroscience and philosophy. When not tutoring, I spend time traveling, reading, and performing music.
