I provide a dynamic working environment, engaging students at all times. This involves breaking down concepts into smaller, more comprehensible components and building from the basics. The students love positive feedback and the excitement when they understand a new concept.
I have more than 20 years of tutoring experience in all levels of French Immersion and Core French and teaching adults of all ages as well. In addition, I have a very extensive professional business background in the Québecois marketplace.
