Literature Student at UW - Help Improve English Skills, Reading, and Essay Writing for Elementary, High School, and College

Methodology

I teach using notes as an aid. With those notes, I will break down the various structures of English from grammar, formal sentence structure and essay structure. I have a unique educational background through the Quebec CEGEP system so I am familiar with high school, college, and university English courses. I also help the students design their own visual aids so they can progress beyond just the tutoring sessions.

Background

I am a 3rd Year English Literature and Rhetoric Student at the University of Waterloo and I am a level 1 certified tutor for English. I have tutored those whose first language is English as well as those who are fluent in French wishing to study in English.
