In college, I had the opportunity to be an academic fellow. As an Academic Fellow, I meet one on one with the students to help them improve their writing. I found that I enjoy helping people improve their writing and become engaged with the material.
I am willing to help with college writing and creative writing.
I also went to a very competitive high school where I got an International Bacalaureate deploma. I found that the key to doing well in school was feeling engaged with the material. I found that I could do this by staying motivated and a few key study skills. I'm happy to help high school students to become better motived so to impove study skills.
Hi, my name is Cybele L., and I am a French and English Education Major at Hofstra University. As a native French and English speaker, I am employed as a tutor at Hofstra University and as an outside, private tutor as well.
For French, I can help in all aspects of studying, especially speaking, grammar, writing, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. Whether you are a beginner student or advanced learner, I can help you with what you are looking to improve!
In terms of English, I specialize in Literature and Creative Writing. For all ages, I am able to help with analyzing literature (and poetry), essay writing and revising, creative brainstorming, learning grammatical conventions, speech writing, and much more!
I am willing to drive to meet in whichever location would be easiest and most comfortable as a learning environment.
I am a trained tutor with a BA in Written Arts and Classical Studies, and 4+ years of experience tutoring students of all ages. I work particularly on supporting students as they develop writing, reading, and studying skills. In my work I meet students where they are in their academic process and collaborate with them to build achievable goals. I work to change student outcomes--not just the grade on one paper or test; this work is not simply editing, but rather engaging with the roots of students’ academic struggles and joys and building up from there. I believe in supporting students as they interrogate their own academic processes and their own ideas--and do this by leading them through rounds of Socratic questioning, free writing, and showing examples of model work. I have worked at the Bard College Learning Commons as a tutor for over four years, where I have been a peer tutor and Writing Fellow. I am also TESOL certified and have worked at Bard College as an ELL specific tutor. Through the Bard Prison Initiative, I have gained experience working with "non-traditionally aged" students. I am now employed by Bard College as the Tutor Coordinator, a job that allows me not only to tutor, but also to support, collaborative with, and hold training workshops for the undergraduate tutors at the college.
