- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I am passionate about teaching.
I enjoy working with young people. Usually they come to me because they are failing and feeling very low.
My main concern is to build their confidence and their knowledge. I give them methods of learning, guidelines and lots of practice. With their confidence rebuilt, the students are much happier and it shows at school and in their family life. They believe in themselves and become an asset to the school. I always acknowledge their improvement and I keep working over and over again with a student, until I see a spark in his eyes proving to me that he has understood and I have done my job well.
I don't believe in failure. I only believe in â€œpractice makes perfectâ€. I keep working until the student has achieved his goal.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for the past 20 years.
At first I tutored students of the French LycÃ©e in Maths and French.
I've also prepared students for their A level in French.
