I am French, American and Vietnamese. Besides English and French, I can also speak German and Spanish, and am currently learning Italian.
I enjoy learning languages, because it is a way to learn about different languages and understand different cultures. As someone who has grown up in three distinct cultures, understanding different people is particularly important to me.
I think that my interest in languages has also been kindled by my interest in music. I started playing the violin at the age of 3, and am still playing today.
My experience in tutoring encompasses both academic and non-academic subject matters. At university, I have been selected by the Law Faculty to work with law students as an academic mentor. I coached a small group of students in law methodology, essay and problem question technique, as well as guiding them through model answers for their examinations. I have also tutored students in languages and music since my first year at university. In addition, throughout my high school years, I have punctually worked with middle school and high school students with academic difficulties, helping them to acquire methodology and encouraging them to attain their academic potential. My summers for four years had been dedicated to volunteering at math and art camps near Washington, DC. I have also spent two years working as a volunteer violin teacher at the Suzuki Music School in Lyon, France.
These experiences have developed my patience, but have also enabled me to acquire certain skills such as designing and conducting classes and organizing interactive materials for students to help them learn and be interested in learning.
My approach to education and learning has radically changed since I read Dr. Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences. Gardner demonstrates that intelligence comes in a variety of shapes and forms. There are many different ways to learn, and not everyone learns the same way.
Today, as an LPC student at the University of Law, I find myself experimenting with many different types of learning techniques and hope to become a better learner. I am convinced that we can all become better learners, but it takes practice, perseverance and motivation. That is my goal as a tutor – not just to share my knowledge with others, but to help them become more efficient learners… because the better you know how to learn, the better you can teach yourself practically anything.
My lessons are generally structured in 2 parts. The first half of the lesson is devoted to a summary of the key points and cases on the topic. The second half of the lesson is exam-focused and is devoted to answering typical essay and/or problem questions which could arise on the particular topic.
