French-Speaking university graduate gives French lessons in and around Amherst NS

Methodology

My teaching methods are based on student's individual personality and communication styles, I adapt my approach to the needs of my students instead of the opposite. I have a transparent approach with my students and build my curriculum on their actual needs instead of having a universal curriculum for everyone. I involve my students in building the curriculum and actual training modules and see my role as trainer/teacher as a guide rather than just delivering information. This way, my students are more involved in the class and this encourages participation.

A typical class begins with a brief review of the previous lesson, followed by the day's agenda and curriculum so students know what to expect. We then do the theory associated with the module and most of the lesson is built around practical exercises such as mock conversations and role-playing. Job aids are provided for vocabulary and common terms, also included is listening to French programs on TV/radio along with newspapers articles, magazines and books. I believe that languages are best learned through immersion rather than just theory and grammar books.

Background

I am a fully bilingual university graduate that can help you improve your communication and understanding of the French language. I have a bachelor's and a master's degree in history and political science obtained in Montreal and Ottawa, where I was a teaching assistant during my master's degree. Furthermore, I also was a trainer in a financial institution for 2 1/2 years delivering extensive training to employees in both english and french and helped them improve their communication skills in French. I helped many people succeed in interviews and job applications by improving their communication in French and can do the same for you!
