Hi! I am a recent graduate of Pomona College, and I have been tutoring students for the past couple of years. I majored in English literature and minored in French, so humanities subjects (including reading and writing for test prep) are especially fun for me. (Though I am very comfortable teaching math as well).
I spent my junior year abroad: first in Montpellier, France, studying French literature and art history, then at the University of Cambridge, studying Shakespeare! I love to travel, and hope to do more of it in the future. I also enjoy helping students with their French language learning goals, so that they can get the most out of their travel experiences as well.
I don't know about you, but I am also an extremely nervous test taker. I have developed several test preparation techniques that I would be happy to work with you on, so that you are confident and ready on your test day!
I hope to hear from you soon! I am looking forward to working with you.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe teaching should be as personalized as possible. Each student has specific needs and a learning style that suits them best. Being responsive to these needs ensures the best quality teaching experience for both the student and the tutor.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
We will discuss your needs and goals for a given subject, come up with a few strategies to get there, and then dive right in. That might mean learning a basic conversation for language tutoring, brainstorming for an essay, or looking at sample questions for test prep.
