Hi there :) welcome to my profile. I'm a recent university graduate looking to add to my resume in preparation for teacher's college applications. - - - I'm a semi-native and fully-fluent French speaker, having studied in French immersion until high school and also speaking it at home as a secondary language, and most recently studying how to teach it to new learners. - - - The most important trait that I have as a teacher is patience. I'm always prepared to match the pace of a learner, whether that means challenging them beyond their curriculum or revising the most basic concepts of a subject. - - - I love martial arts and train regularly. I was president of the U of T karate club during my time there, and I currently teach martial arts in an after-school elementary school programme with kids ages 4-8.
