I am a grant-winning Ph.D. student who works in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am studying English, Psychology, and Neuroscience. In addition, I am fluent in both English and French, and I have over 4 years of teaching and tutoring experience.
Moreover, I have a lot of experience tutoring non-native English speakers, and I find them exceptionally motivated. I enjoy tutoring any motivated student--and because of my ESL teaching and tutoring experience, I have learned to identify particular strengths and problems individual students might have. For example, native Mandarin students may not understand the concept of tense, and native Romance language students might not understand how to make English subjects and verbs agree. This experience is applicable to native English speakers as well--often, there may be one area in which the student has a problem which recurs. Identifying these problems and strengths--and getting the student to understand the underlying concepts--is crucial to helping students improve.
I love to help students enjoy learning without a lot of stress--and I don't want them to study because they are "supposed to". I would much rather that students enjoy themselves and the challenges of learning, and so I try to tailor each student's classes to the student's individual interests, as much as possible.
