Outgoing, open-minded tutor with an enthusiastic personality! More than 300 hours tutoring experience.

Methodology

I believe that positive reinforcement is the best method for working with kids (showing them with enthusiasm that they’re doing well to build self-confidence, using stickers for those who like them, talking about their achievements and improvements, etc.). I also always adjust to the needs of the child. Since they are all different, they also learn with different methods. For that reason, I listen and observe and then try my best to help, modelling my methods to the child. Being an enthusiastic person in general, I also bring a bit of fun and humour at the appropriate time.

Experience

I am a full time tutor (and part-time psychology student), helping children with their development. My varied experience has included:
- homeschooling a 7 year old to help him progress with his reading (learning phonics, recognising letters and their sound, improving writing skills, etc.)
- teaching a 5 year old full-time, who needed to improve his French
- helping a 4 year old prepare for her first year at school (learning the alphabet and how to count, recognising numbers and letters, and improving her ability to sit down and focus on a task, etc.)
- teaching Maths to an 8 year old through zoom

And many more!

Furthermore, I have comprehensive experience as a lead teacher for Key Stages 1 & 2 at an academy that provided children with supplementary education. I was tutoring them on a variety of subjects including Maths and English, providing them resources corresponding to their needs and helping them with their school homework. When I lived in Québec, I was working as a tutor, helping children of Year 3 to progress in school through supplementary education and homework help (Predominantly covering French, Maths and Science). During my time in Québec, I also taught in a primary school, with classes in Reception and Year 5. In addition to my teaching, I have more than 5 years’ experience as a nanny, making me extremely comfortable caring for children.

I'm an outgoing, open-minded person, with a good sense of humour, an enthusiastic personality and a passion for working with children and helping their progression. I also pride myself on my hard work and dedication.

Education
I am currently studying psychology as part of my degree, after my first certificate in Social Sciences. This included two internships in elementary schools for a total of 6 months. After I graduated from high school, I also studied for 3 years for a college diploma in the humanities, specialising in education. Therefore, I am confident in my knowledge regarding child development and education.

I am originally from Québec in Canada and am fluent in both English and French. French is my mother tongue and I have completed all my years at school and university in the language. This, coupled with my teaching experience in English, gives me great confidence in my ability to provide excellent Key Stage 1 & 2 tuition as well as French tuition for all ages and abilities.

I strongly recommend Frédérique as she helped my daughter with her homework from school. She easily build a relationship based on trust and gave my daughter the knowledge and self confidence she needed to get trough the rest of the school year.

I have known Frédérique for many years now and throughout that time she has worked in the care and education of children of all ages and abilities. I know her to be engaging, enthusiastic, and patient; as well as having the ability to tailor her teaching style to best accommodate her students. I cannot recommend her enough!
