University of Waterloo Honours French Teaching Specialization Major looking for students K-12 who want to improve their knowledge and/or grades in French!

Methodology

My teaching methodology puts an emphasis on understanding the current knowledge of the student and working with them to find areas we are both interested in improving. When working with a student, I like to set a methodical pace that in-class instruction fails to provide. In a classroom, a teacher is tasked with ensuring a group of students develop the skills required of them as determined by the provincial curriculum. With only so much time on a teacher's hands, and so many students to divide it between, many students fall through the cracks and find themselves believing they just CAN'T understand a subject.

This is not true. Anyone can learn anything given enough time and practice. In my tutoring, I am able to devote my full attention to one student, and give them as much time as needed to help them understand a concept before moving to the next one. If ever you felt like the classroom didn't give you what you need, please consider contacting me. Working together, we WILL get your French to where you want it to be.

Background

I am studying Honours French at University of Waterloo with a specialization in teaching. I am French Immersion certified. I spent one semester in a grade 7/8 French Immersion classroom as a co-op experience. There, I taught lessons, marked work, and engaged with students regularly. After post-secondary, I plan to apply to teacher's college and become fully certified to teach French Immersion and Core French.

Palmerston Public School (2019)
Co-op Student

At Palmerston Public School, I spent four months learning about teaching grade 7 and 8 students in a professional setting. In this co-op, I instructed the students in the use of literary devices in creative writing, the proper use of cinematography in a public service announcement video, and a debate based on the comparative destruction of natural disasters. In addition to this, I worked with their teacher to plan lessons, mark papers, and help course correct when problems came up. This work was done in both French and English.
