"Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm a senior at Boston University majoring in French Language and Literature. I'm also a graduate of Boston Latin School, the #1 high school in Massachusetts. My experiences at both of these schools have impressed upon me the importance of a combination of rigorous study and a genuine love of learning; both are necessary for a rewarding educational experience.

I have studied French for a total of eleven years, including a year of AP French (scored a 5) and a semester in France at Institut d'├ętudes politiques de Paris, a top-ranked political science university. I have two years of experience tutoring college-level French as a Language Leader at Boston University, where I also led group and one-on-one discussions, events, and presentations entirely in French. My tutoring style is student-focused and conversational, as I feel the best way to gain fluency is by emphasizing communication and clarity. However, as a non-native French speaker, I'm intimately familiar with the intricacies of French grammar, and prepared to delve into its specifics according to my students' needs.

Boston Latin School requires four years of Latin study for graduation, but I fell in love with the language and continued my Latin studies for two more years in college. I specialize in grammar and translation, in particular poetic translation, as I have taken three year-long courses focusing on the works of Catullus, Propertius, and Ovid. I have also studied Livy, Cicero, Pliny the Younger, Virgil, Horace, and Caesar's Gallic Wars. My tutoring encompasses a continuous review of Latin word-formation, syntax, and vocabulary, as well as an emphasis on close reading and analytical skills.

My goal is to instill a love of language-learning in my students while maintaining focus on the academic rigor that is essential for success in college and beyond. I look forward to hearing from you!" less...
