If your confidence has been lost when you are speaking English because of your pronunciation, I strongly recommend you meet Bren McElroy. She is a very experienced teacher: In her lessons, she coaches you how use tongue, lips,teeth, and air to pronounce correctly. It is very practical, so I could recognize my progress quickly; in just the first 15 minutes, she identified my pronunciation weak points and effectively guided me through an efficient process to overcome my pronunciation difficulties. Bren is enthusiastic and she encourages me which helps my confidence when speaking English. Every lesson is fun!

Since I've started working with Sybil, I have more time to practice my conversation skill. She addressed the issues right away during our lessons. Moreover, her delivery method is amazing. Noot so rigid, no rush, and always offering any suggestions necessary to improve my language. I do enjoy it.

Before UMB, I have never taken a class on a different language due to the fact that I went to a technical trade high school. As a Transfer Student entering UMASS Boston, it is a requirement that the student must take 2 semesters (101 and 201) of a language. I chose Spanish because I thought it was the second most spoken language next to English. After the first few weeks of trying to learn spanish with the course and a couple iphone apps, my professor recommended that I go to the UMB tutoring center to better understand this Spanish language. It was at this scheduling session where I was matched up with Arlete as my tutor. We would meet once a week to go over the weekly material and she would give me pointers on how to study and clarify the words that I was unfamiliar with along the way. After a few weeks into the semester, I knew that if I had any chance of passing the class that it would be with the tutoring assistance from Arlete that I could achieve my goal. I ended up passing SPAN101 in the Fall Semester. As the Spring Semester rolled around, I was put into the SPAN201 where I knew I was going back to the tutoring center to find further assistance to help me pass this course as well. While the process for establishing a tutor took longer due to the snow days, I had one session with a different tutor until I made it clear with Arlete that I would like her to tutor me for another semester of this Spanish. We went over the coursework as we did in the SPAN101 but this time it was a bit more advanced. After all was said and done, I passed the class and I couldn't have done it without 2 semesters of help from Arlete. She made it clear that we would meet one day a week at a time acceptable for both of us and we would go over my assignments. It wasn't until small talk that I begin to notice that she was taking time out of her own classes that she could've used extra help to help me instead. I was very appreciative and thankful because I don't think I could've passed the class without meeting with her. I believe she would be a great asset to anybody who needs help with Spanish. She has quite the knowledge on the subject and knows how to relay the information.

Diane Brown is an extraordinary human being and an outstanding Spanish teacher. Her primary concern is what works best for the individual student and she is prepared to use multiple modalities recognizing the students’ visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning strengths. Spanish is learned as a living spoken and written language influenced by rich cultures. As her colleague and team leader, I was impressed by her enthusiasm, commitment to her students and her work ethic. As the parent three students, I was delighted by the depth and breadth their Spanish knowledge after just two years of Middle School Spanish.

We have had Mr. Kaplan since February, 2015 to teach French to our 11 year old son from the beginning level. My intention is to cover all material that a 1st year middle school teaches. He teaches my son one hour per week . He is a fabulous teacher, who teaches not just French pronunciation, but grammar and French culture. He always adds extra content that goes beyond the book. Now after 4-5 lessons, my son can count to 100 and conduct a simple conversation.

Samantha is tutoring my daughter in high school honors French. I like that she tailors her lessons to her ability, learning style and current school lessons. She is also warm and engaging. This has made such a comfortable learning environment. Samantha has been the right choice for us, but I can see her working very well with any age person who wants to to learn or brush up on their French.

About

I work as a Regulatory Affairs professional, but I also do tutoring. I am a French native, and French is my primary language. I attended all my classes in French from kindergarten to high school. All subjects were taught by French teachers, and all study materials were in French. In addition to being fluent in speaking and understanding French, I am also very proficient in French grammar, French literature, and writing. As a Regulatory Affairs professional, some of my duties involve translating documents from French to English and vice versa. My tutoring experience started as far back as high school. I was just helping a friend who was failing physics. To my surprise, she learned it so well that she ended up passing the course with a B. I was happy for her and proud of myself. Needless to say, I became a peer tutor when I started college. I obtained a certification for tutoring from Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU) where I majored in Chemistry and Biology. I graduated with honors (3.5/4.0) with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. I also obtained a minor in French Language and Literature (4.0/4.0). 1990-1994 - I worked at ENMU as a Tutor for French, Biology, Chemistry, and Algebra. I was also a French Teacher’s Assistant and French Substitute Teacher. I tutored all level of French courses as well as grading homework and exams. As substitute teacher, I also taught all French courses as needed. 1994-1995 - I was a Night School Teacher at Wayne Community College for returning high school students. I taught science to students ranging from 18 to 50 years of age. 2001-2002 - I worked for StudySmart as a Tutor for the following subjects: SAT/PSAT Prep, Biology, Chemistry and French. I received great reviews from the students and their parents about my tutoring style and approach. My students found my teaching style "fun." I was also told that I was not "rigid" as the other tutors they worked with and that my personality (I am a people person, very lively and full of energy) made them feel comfortable working with me. In 2002, I went back to school and obtained a Master of Science degree from Mass College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences with a 3.7/4.0, and in 2009, I graduated from nursing school. In my spare time, I write French poetry. I plan to publish them in the very near future. I am a dynamic, enthusiastic individual who is also a people person. My years of experience, my teaching style and my personality the fact that French make me suitable to be a Tutor for any organization.

About

I currently work at a private Catholic high school as a Spanish language teacher for levels 2 and 3 students. I have worked with students at all levels of Spanish in the past. As a young professional, I am constantly seeking new and creative ways to engage students with the language that may not be offered or available to them through traditional methods.

About

As a bilingual teacher, I tutor in English and French. Students get individual attention and help so as to become more skillful in understanding and expressing themselves in English or French. Born in the U.S, I learned French as a child and lived for 14 years in French-speaking countries. I have also been teaching English for many years.
