You will see that distance learning can be fun and easy! I use virtual whiteboards along with Skype, Zoom or Whatsapp! You will be learning Math, Sciences or French from a former Engineer

Methodology

I put emphasis on making the learning meaningful and interesting through relatable real life problem solving with topics selected with the student’s interests in mind. I also make the student’s thinking visible by asking the student to create visual representation like drawings and writings. This both helps the student understand better and helps me in guiding the student more efficiently through open questions.

Background

I am a former Mechanical Engineer and am currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Education at UBCO. I have worked as a substitute teacher, educational assistant and online teacher as well as ski instructor and outdoor guide during the past two years.

Xavier has been my Via Ferrata guide on a few occasions and he told me that after a few years of being a ski instructor, guide, and substitute teacher he is heading in teaching. As he is an engineer, I am sure he will make an excellent science teacher. Throughout the activity he was guiding me, he made sure that the whole group followed the rules in a safe way, he explained the techniques to us with a lot of patience and humor, he made the activity most interesting by giving us all kinds of information on flora and nature. We felt confident with him and we always had a lot of fun.
