"Graduate Level Math and Science Tutor"
I have been passionate about tutoring and teaching since I was a little girl. When I went off to college, I knew I wanted to study biology, since it was challenging, but interesting at the same time.

"Thalia Tutors: French language, the arts, singing, and more"
As a fluent french speaker since birth, French is my first language. I lived in Paris for six years, and studied abroad there for 6 months last year.

I am an expert in oral, conversational french, and equally trained in writing, grammar, spelling, pronunciation, history, and culture. Additionally, I specifically study the history of french theatre (from the Middle ages to Contemporary), and Parisian women's literature. I have done translation work, mostly translating french texts into English versions. ... More
