I like to have a structured approach that also adapts to the uniqueness of each student. I believe the best way to teach is to first learn how a student learns. I bring joy and a positive energy to all my classes.
Julia is one of our best tutors. High-quality profile and excellent qualifications, organised and responsive to lesson requests, appreciated by their students!
I am a literary translator with tutoring experience working to get a BC Teaching Certificate. I am from Brazil originally, where I attended a 100% French school from the age of 3. I went to University in Paris (Sorbonne), where I got my Bachelor's and Master's degree in literature. I have since been working with a combination of translation and tutoring, and am now taking pedagogy classes at UVic to become a high school French teacher.
