"Dear students,

I am a full-time teacher and tutor, specializing in ESL and early-childhood education. I speak French and Spanish fluently and am an environmental engineer by training (B.A.Sc., M.Sc.) I started teaching as a volunteer in an English conversation group for immigrants at my local library: I loved it, and soon my groups were overflowing with interested students. I spent several years living abroad in Europe and Latin America, and continued to accept English-teaching opportunities wherever they arose, and students continued actively to seek me out. I have since focused my efforts in teaching for the TOEFL, SAT, GRE, and GMAT exams that are required for admission to many higher-education programs. I teach using official material and practice tests, though I have never sought certification in this as I usually have more interested students than I can make time for.

I am currently in the last module of my Montessori teacher certification. I attended a Montessori school as a child and I believe that, aside from a loving and supportive home environment, there is no better way to prepare children for a meaningful and productive life. My teaching is not limited to the Montessori method, but I apply what I have learned from Montessori in every way that I can.

I'm here to help. Whatever your goals are, I will dedicate our time together to helping you meet them. I will adapt my methods and the material that we use to your needs and interests. Particularly, I will help you to focus in on your weak points so that we can overcome them together.

That being said, it is the student who does the learning. My role as a tutor is to support you, to give you my full attention and every resource at my disposal, but at the end of the day you will get out whatever you put in. I strive to strike a balance between gentle and firm, playful and serious, structured and spontaneous. I have taught many students in a variety of languages and countries and I work to connect with what is universal in us. I would be honoured" less...
