As a French tutor, my approach to teaching is first understanding how the student learns best. From there, I can choose the best way to teach them whether it be through visual learning, repetition of words, making connections, writing out words, sounding out words for pronunciation, etc. I am patient with the tutee and make sure to get their output on my methods and ask what works best for him or her, if the methods were helpful or not for example, and how I can adjust my teaching style to meet his or her needs.
Note: I do not speak with a Quebecois accent, but speak a universal/continental French nor do I teach Quebec slang or Quebec French.
I graduated from High School with an Honour Certificate of Bilingual Studies in Extended French. This means half of my courses were completed in French throughout my secondary school career. French was also my first language before I moved to Canada and I continue to speak it at home with my family, as well as, I started the Extended French program since grade 4 up until grade 12 with excellent marks! My strengths in this area are especially grammar, writing, oral communication (i.e. pronunciation, reading aloud, correcting the accent).
