English and French Student offers structured language tutoring sessions in Downtown Toronto

Methodology

To be clear: I tutor both English and French and have years of experience with both languages.

My approach to tutoring differs between children. Ideally, I would have one meeting with the student to determine their needs and work on whatever assignment/material they are struggling with. From this, I could plan future sessions. Planning includes setting specific goals to achieve, finding relevant exercise sheets or activities, determining how frequently to meet (and for how long), and determining how often to take breaks during a session (depends on child). I have personal experience with overcoming difficulties in my classes, and I hope to help other children do the same.

I also have experience working with students not currently taking language lessons, in which case I can develop my own lesson plans.

Note: For Group lessons (I will take up to 3 students at a time), I charge $40/ hour for two students and $50 for three students. I will ensure that I help all students in a session excel individually and together.

Background

I am a university student in Ontario, Canada studying English and Business with a minor in French. I have more than six years experience working with children, and more than four years experience in tutoring and teaching. I have tutored a variety of subjects from elementary school to university level, and worked with students whose native language is English or French.

During my time as an assistant teacher and youth program leader, I developed lesson plans for students ages three to seventeen. I also have experience writing and editing essays and other academic assignments.

I am a graduate of an academic Toronto high school and am deeply passionate about school and the subjects I am studying.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $ 28/h

Details

I would like to charge $14 (50%) for cancellation under 12 hrs before. I would be willing to talk over the phone or webcam for free, however for a first lesson where I have to travel, I would like to do a full-length paid session. I am willing to provide references if need be.

For Group lessons (I will take up to 3 students at a time), I charge $40/ hour for two students and $50 for three students.
