I am a certified Canadian K-12 teacher, specializing in teaching English, Spanish and French as additional languages as well social sciences (history, geography, environmental studies and economics). I taught in from 2016-19 in BC schools and have since been an Education Program Manager for a reputable non-profit organization. I have taught English, French and Spanish to native speakers of dozens of other languages (namely Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin, Cantonese, French, Korean, Japanese, Farsi, and Tagalog). I love introducing French immersion students to Spanish and teaching them tricks to learn their 3rd language! Learn about my qualifications here.
I take on a limited number of students to ensure quality, personalized instruction. Students must be willing to dedicate regular practice to their studies. I currently have 13 students in 7 cities (3 Canadian provinces, 5 countries, spread over 4 continents!). The variety of life experiences and learning goals that each student brings to our lessons makes each lesson and learning path unique.
My fee for each hour of instruction also includes personalized lesson preparation and some homework for review/practice. Most students have one lesson per week. My high school students have successfully completed Rotary International Youth Exchanges, immersion programs and the IB Diploma Program (Spanish and French). My adult students (university students, government and other professionals) have successfully passed internationally-recognized exams (TOEFL, Cambridge, IELTS, CELPIP) in Canada, France, and Peru. Students of all ages have enjoyed many trips, equipped with useful language skills.
Due to COVID-19, I currently tutor using practical online platforms. In spring and summer, lessons for elementary and middle school students will take place in parks. Please fill out the form below if you would like lessons now or in the near future.
