Hello future students,
I'm Jade, a French Canadian teacher living in Québec. I graduated from UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal, Montréal, Canada) in 2015 with a Bachelor in Teaching French as a Second Language. Since then, I traveled a lot and I even lived in Australia for a year and New Zealand for almost two. Those years living in English speaking countries helped me understand better the process of using a second language in my day to day life. As a French native speaker, it is important for me to put myself through the learning process of a new language. At the moment, I am trying to learn Welsh since my husband is from Wales, United Kingdom. I am also helping him learn French. In my experience, learning a second (or third, or fourth!) language works better when you have a native speaker helping you. Communicative abilities are at the forefront of my teaching technique. One of the reason someone wants to learn a language is often (if not all the time) because they want to talk to someone in that language. This is why I focus more on this ability than the others at first. The speed a student learns depends always on the effort and work he/she will put in his/her learning.
Since graduating from University and travelling around the world, I had teaching experiences mostly in Elementary. I can also teach in High Schools, for adults and immigrant classes (called classes d'accueil in Québec). This diversity is one of the reasons why I love teaching a second language. It is so gratifying to know I can help expend the speech abilities of a lot of students.
If you have more questions about my professional background before choosing me as your tutor, don't hesitate to message me.
In the hopes of hearing from you soon!
I have been tutoring since I started my Teaching Degree in 2011. It was a good way for the shy teacher that I was to practice and develop my teaching abilities. In all my years as a tutor, I've been mostly teaching students from Elementary School but I had some High School students and adults too. I loved watching them all flourish and become better during my time with them.
The content of my classes will be based on the Ministère de l'Éducation du Québec which is the guidelines document all teachers use in Québec.
I will focus on communicative skills at first and then if asked we could go deeper in working on the grammar.
I will plan my lessons according each specific needs of each students.
