"English tutor--reading and writing"
I hold a BA and an MA in English, I have taught English composition at both the high school and college levels, and in my career as an Administrative Law Judge with the state of Connecticut (25+ years) I have always been the "go to" person when colleagues needed their work edited or proofread. I am a stickler for good grammar, clarity and organization--this trait may sometimes be annoying to the student or my co-worker, but they certainly recognize the value of my input. My own ch... ...

For those looking for any level of French tutoring, I would highly recommend Carole. As Carole grew up in France, she brings a wonderful perspective on cultural nuances as well as the geographical differences in the French language. She has an excellent grasp on the technical aspects of the language as well as the colloquial aspects. Carole is very pleasant to work with; is patient with the learning process as well as with the explanations often needed; is flexible and is consistently supportive throughout your progress. Beyond simply teaching from an instructional guide, Carole also tries to identify other ways to increase exposure to the French language including a book club she runs, magazines, internet sites, radio links, and other such modalities. If you ever want to consider learning French, I would highly recommend you contact Carole.

Matt was extremely easy to get in touch with via email, with a quick response. Friendly, patient and very intelligent when it comes to Mac computers. I sat with him for two hours yesterday, and never once did he get frustrated or short with me. What I really appreciated is that he had me show him how to do certain tasks, rather then just doing everything himself. If he didn't know a particular question, he looked everything up and was able to navigate through the system and provide me with the accurate information I needed. I would definitely recommend Matt for a tutor. I was extremely happy with the service provided to me, and will utilize him again in the future if needed.
Thanks again Matt!!
