Through these programs, I've achieved fluency in French and Spanish, in addition to the languages in which I am already fluent (i.e. English and Romanian). In my first year, I was placed at immersion-level French after doing Core French in high school and in a third-year Spanish class, after completing high school Spanish.
Most recently, I completed a year-long practicum placement at Harbord Collegiate Institute where I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year Spanish. Prior to that, I spent a year as a student teacher at Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute teaching Grade 10 Immersion and Grade 11 Extended French classes. Everything having to do with these classes - including lesson planning, finding materials, and teaching - was done in French. I have also taught Grade 7-9 French at Highland Junior High School, where I volunteered as a classroom assistant two years in a row.
Aside from classroom experience, I was a French monitor at Glendon College where I provided tutoring to university students taking grammar and composition courses in French. I have been tutoring English, Spanish, and French for several years. I've also tutored math up to the grade 8 level, working with students from 3 to 26 years old. I genuinely enjoy helping others learn.
I have access to a variety of resources for language learning, such as textbooks written in French, English, and Spanish, books of verb conjugations, writing handbooks, as well as a variety of online resources.
HobbiesI enjoy reading, writing, and learning foreign languages. I have a passion for grammar and linguistics, as well as logic, and I am highly organized and punctual. I love helping people learn and watching them succeed. I'm able to explain the same concept in a variety of ways (visual, auditory, tactile, and combinations thereof), and I pride myself on being able to adapt my teaching to my students' interests and learning styles. If I can make a difference in just one person's educational experience, I will be happy.
