About the lesson
I have over 15 years of experience in helping students attain a high level of proficiency in French and excel in Math. I work tirelessly to understand the individual needs of each student and evaluate their competencies in the initial classes. A methodology is then designed to focus on the areas of improvement while continuing to work on their strengths. In my experience, most students struggle with reading comprehension and grammar, hence are unable to effectively communicate in French. I focus on laying a foundation by working on reading skills and sentence formation, thereafter, I use 'dictée', along with multiple other methodologies as building blocks to instill confidence in the students and help them become functionally bilingual.
I also specialize in teaching students with special learning needs. Classes are designed to maximize the attention/engagement span of the student by the use of visual and audio content that is selected based on each student's learning requirements. Students benefit from this approach and excel in the language with a greater focus.

Bonjour! My name is Namita and I simply love teaching!
I truly love my profession as it lets me connect with wonderful students from all over the world. I am based out of a spectacular island in British Columbia, I love the ocean and the mountains.
I look forward to connecting with you to understand your child’s needs and how we can support their learning together!
Perfect! Perfect! Namita is an excellent Tutor. My 10 year old boy really enjoys working with her. I hear their experiences together and I can see first hand how Namita is assisting my son to improve his reading and writing in French. Also, he feels more confident in mathematics after studying with her.
Perfect! I'm so happy we found Namita. She has been a great French tutor for my daughter for the last few months. In only this short amount of time I have already noticed more confidence in my daughter when speaking the language. We look forward to her continuing help to improve her understanding and affection for the language throughout highschool. Can't speak highly enough about Namita in her passion and commitment to her students.

Namita connects with the children on a personal level, listening carefully and finds a way to draw them into the program each session. The love of the language is fun and contagious! Thank you Namita!

In just a few weeks, they are able to understand sounds and form words. Can't wait to see you in the next class :)
Perfect! The most important aspect of finding a tutor for me was that my daughter felt comfortable and trusted her tutor. That is exactly what’s happened. My daughter genuinely enjoys the time and additional effort she’s putting in, she finds Namita to be helpful and kind. My daughter has said that she learns more in two hours with her tutor than she learns with six hours at school.
I highly recommend Namita!

Had to admit, it is hard to find a good tutor for the French language, but when we chose Namita for our son's tutor, my wife and I felt that we did the right choice. Namita's method to learning the language is better compared to the normal school system in our opinion. Her approach, methodology and knowledge level have indeed encouraged our son to like the language and excel with the subject. We highly recommend her.
Namita is an engaging and insightful teacher, she is very patient, and able to adapt to different learning styles to assist my daughter according to her needs. The lessons are interesting and fun. My daughter has been looking forward to every French class. I would highly recommend Namita! She is amazing!
My 6 year old daughter recently started French lessons with Namita in preparation for entering French immersion in September. My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Namita. She looks forward to chatting with Namita and says that Namita is kind. Namita keeps her lessons interesting by including videos and songs. Namita sends me homework for my daughter to complete and keeps me up-to-date through emails, text messages and phone calls.

When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
I have always enjoyed being with kids. During my high school years, I got an opportunity to volunteer with Alliance Française to organize summer camps for elementary school students. That's where I developed a strong interest in teaching.
What makes you passionate about your subject?
It gives me immense pleasure to introduce my favourite language to kids of young age and being able to teach it to them so it stays with them all their lives.
I have observed students quit learning French majorly due to the complexity & richness of the language and due to the lack of adequate support. Over the years, I have developed techniques to make learning simplified, fun and sustainable.
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Having years of experience learning the intricacies of the language, also working with kids for many years, I can understand the needs of each child and provide need-specific tools to improve their language.
Also, I not only prepare my students to learn the language but also to learn good values they can use outside of the class!
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.
This definitely has to be my French-language teacher who suffered a big loss including one of their limbs due to a road accident. This unfortunate incident never stopped them from bringing a wave of energy each time they entered to teach a class. Studying under their guidance was certainly inspiring and they were a big reason why I pursued to teach the language. I always try to create the same energy levels every time I start a class.
What are your keys to success?
I believe my key to success is the 3 foundation pillars that I always stand by. These are my 3Cs:
Creativity, Connection, and Curiosity.
