French in all its forms taught from educational neuroscience, in the Toronto core

I approach my students with an individualized mentorship approach. I believe that a significant part of grasping a difficult subject is developing the self-confidence to get creative and approach problems in new ways, secured in a fundamental understanding of concepts; life skills that will open up their future. My ultimate goal is to teach my students to teach themselves - much as I enjoy working with them, I'll have done my job if I've put myself out of work.

I'm in this because changing lives is an experience that brightens mine.

My passion is passion itself. I'm a very dynamic person, and I become enthralled watching others' eyes light up as they delve into something that inspires them.

Please note: tutoring occurs at local public library, rather than my personal home.

Please note: because I believe in the importance of a good fit, and accessibility of worthwhile education, the first session is offered for only $15. Further sessions are offered at $25/hr.

I teach french, oral expression - french, oral comprehension - french, writing comprehension - french, writing expression - french. For the levels: elementary school, junior high / middle school, secondary school, college, university, adult education, early childhood education, beginner, intermediate, advanced, proficient, for children
I give lessons in person at my home.
I give lessons by webcam.

Sara's Experience

I've been involved in education over seven years, working with students spanning from 7-17 years old, with topics including engineering, science, French, and ballet. Most recently, I've spent 10 weeks working at a 24/7 French immersion program teaching these latter three, as well as mentoring, and organizing new and creative educational events and forums that cater to students' interests and strengths. I've been doing private tutoring for about 6 months.

University:
6.0 full-year course equivalents (FCE) biology, 2.0 FCE chemistry, 1.0 FCE calculus, 0.5 FCE statistics, 0.5 FCE French. Consistent above-average performance and Dean's List Scholar, and recipient of admissions and in-course scholarships.

High School:
- AP Biology exam 2014: 5/5 (top 6.4%)
- SBI 4U, AP: 100%
- MDM 4U: 96%
- MHF 4U: 92%
- ENG 4U: 94%

Of course I have my own passions too, particularly language (currently learning Italian and Cantonese), classical dance, and theatre. I've been involved with university theatre (a drama and a comedic musical), but in my spare time at home I like to get creative with Photoshop or video games.

Please note: because I believe in the importance of a good fit, and accessibility of worthwhile education, the first session is offered for only $15. Further sessions are offered at $25/hr. persevere
