Gain confidence in French speaking by working with an Ontario teacher with a background in educational neuroscience

Methodology

I approach my students with an individualized mentorship approach, coupled with patience, genuine care, and empathy. 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, in part by securing a fundamental understanding of specific concepts. My ultimate goal is to teach my students to teach themselves - as much as I enjoy working with them, I'll have done my job if I've put myself out of work.

I'm a very dynamic person, and I become enthralled watching others' eyes light up as they delve into something that inspires them. I find getting to know students as people, and then harnessing their strengths and working through their weaknesses, to be one of the most enriching things we can do not only for each other, but for the good of our society.

Background

Currently, I am finishing my Bachelor of Education to become a fully-certified teacher in Ontario.

• 2 years tutoring students
• Expertise in Ontario science and math curricula
• Specializes in students aged 11–18
• Experience using videoconference and virtual whiteboard software to teach science and math
• Experience teaching science and math to English- and French-language learners

My students see increases in their scientific inquiry skills and in their self-awareness, which empower them to approach any subject with confidence and rigour. Having conducted research on the neuroscience of learning and memory in my previous degree, I bring cutting-edge, effective techniques to my teaching.
