Private tutor in Silver Spring, MD
Hello! I'm Cameron McCary, a 24 year-old, French-speaking graduate of Penn State University. Currently, I'm attending the University of Maryland in order to receive an MA in French Studies where I'm aiming to teach professional courses. Since age 5, I've had exposure to French through at-home "tutorat" (tutorage!) and various local magnet schools. I've traveled to Quebec for some weeks and lived several months abroad in both Paris and Nice. This, and my personal studies of Francophone nations, has allowed me to get well-acclimated with the nuances of French vs American language and culture. Thank you for checking my page! I look forward to what we can do together, whether online or in person.
Culture and grammar are my favorite aspects of French to teach, and I find myself learning from the lessons I give in person and online everyday. I received French instruction since the age of 5, and I used my fluency to tutor students learning French all throughout my middle school, high school, and college years, where I received a BA in French Studies at Penn State University. I am now in College Park at the University of Maryland, working towards my MA in French so that I can instruct at the college level. Along with middle school-collegiate tutoring, I have also taken personal requests for website and document/composition French-English/English-French translations through various agencies including ALTA. I'm offering my services here simply because I desire to help as many people as possible with their French/English writing, reading and cultural experiences. Big payment is not an issue for me. Only that I accomplish my goals to help you with yours. French is a wonderful language that deserves to be promoted.

Studying the differences of French and English have helped me keep my English skills sharp. I write enormous texts in my spare time, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as in academia. And so, I would be glad to provide help in both languages, no matter the topic you'd want to focus on. More specifically, I am an accomplished fiction and non-fiction author in my free time, with many completed works written on Microsoft Word and Google Docs—as well as some titles on Microsoft PowerPoint, but those were largely experimental. I am also greatly interested and involved in politics. Most recently, I served as an aide to Montgomery County's Delegate Alfred Carr Jr during Maryland's Fall 2018 legislative session. Responsible for drafting bill analyses, revising and presenting live (recorded) bill testimonies, recruiting voter support on Delegate legislation, and issuing responses to various constituency emails and letters on behalf of Delegate Al Carr for Maryland’s 18th legislative district. Before this tenure, I was contacted to provide transcription/mail-drafting services for the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election year. Aside from writing and politics, I enjoy playing tennis and swimming in my spare time. I also enjoy spending time with my younger siblings and playing them and our friends in some good soccer matches. Last, I'm a videography buff, and I make tons of in-depth fictional analyses videos in my spare time--skills I gained from working live camera production since 2012. It's definitely easier editing from the PC than editing from the tripod.
