My favourite method of teaching was the Berlitz way, it's the oldest and most effective method for teaching a language from scratch! Unfortunately, I can only speak and write British English fluently, my GSCE French isn't great but I am more than willing to teach Francophones!
I can also offer saxophone lessons as well as language lessons! Unfortunately you'll have to provide your own saxophone or other equivalent instrument like a Clarinet.
I have a TESL certificate from Sol Schools International (Toronto, ON), a Masters' in Audio Production and a Bachelors' in Music. Both of those degrees were from my time in England, whose education system I am very familiar with, as that's where I grew up.
There's a 24 hour cancellation policy, if less than 24 hours notice given on a 5 or 10 hour lesson and the student is unable to reschedule then a $50 surcharge will be paid to me and the rest will be refunded.
A one hour lesson will be charged the cost of my travel expenses unless it can be rescheduled. This is only relevant for my last week in the GVRD area! In Smithers BC, other rates will apply.
