About Me

Interest topicReadingFoodMusic
My name is Sydney, and I’m an English teacher here on italki. I’m originally from San Francisco, California, and I recently lived in Paris, France for a year and half while earning my master's degree in French literature. My personal interests include music, food and wine, reading, television, and of course foreign languages. I like to think that I’m a pretty open-minded person, and I enjoy learning more about my students’ interests and diverse backgrounds and lifestyles. Should you want to book a lesson but you are not seeing a time slot that suits your needs, please feel free to contact me about finding a lesson time that works for both of us. I hope to hear from you soon!

Sydney is a very good teacher. She is positive person, knows how to keep up the conversation even if the topic is not in her circle of interests. She has excellent pronunciation, she prepares classes on topics of interest to the student.

I appreciate the exchange with Sydney. She gave me much to ponder with the questions she asked and the responses she provided. As a native speaker myself, I did not engage her to impart to me instruction in English, such as she might have done for someone for whom English was not the first language (as it was for me). Instead, I wanted to obtain her advice on a specialized literary project I had begun. That said, she is, in my assessment of the matter, an expert on the nuanced use of English; she is linguistically gifted (as you can tell from her introductory video, which shows her speaking fluently in French); and can adapt her lessons to meet the needs of beginners in English. She is compassionate, sensitive, and empathetic, and I highly recommend her.
