Native Finnish speaker with past tutoring experience gives Finnish lessons to students of any age in Brisbane

Methodology

I grew up bilingual- speaking Finnish to my mum, and English to my dad. I will teach Finnish to anyone who wants to take on the enjoyable challenge of this Scandinavian language! Depending on the students' prior knowledge of Finnish, I will teach them grammar, pronunciation, written Finnish, and conversational Finnish, and any other help they may need. Most importantly, I will teach them to love the Finnish language like I do. I am a gentle teacher, and I will not push my students, but I will make sure that they make good progress each lesson.

Background

I was a volunteer tutor at The Exchange in Kelvin Grove for over 2 years (2015-2017) while I was at Brisbane Girls Grammar School. I had several students from challenging and diverse backgrounds who needed someone to motivate and support them while they were at school. I helped them to improve their grades, pass their exams, enjoy learning, and to become more self-motivated with their homework and other studies. I believe that everyone who has an education deserves to thrive, and I hope that by helping students with Finnish, I can contribute to their academic success and love of languages.
