As every Child's needs are different, I believe in individual based planned lessons. Every student should be able to learn at their own rhythm in order to learn and succeed. I also believe by teaching with positive reinforcement ensures the child is more confident and will be more likely to succeed.
I have recently completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Ottawa in Canada and have pursued my dream of being a teacher. I am fluently bilingual in French and English and have an extensive amount of experience working with children. My most recent job descriptions include: supply teaching in a primary school, tutoring and working as a support worker for 2 students with special needs.
Through my experience working with children, I have learnt that every child’s needs are different.
If a lesson is cancelled I still charge. However, arrangements for rescheduling is possible
