Personal Description:

Bonjour! Allô! My name is Melissa. I am a full-time teacher and a part-time tutor.

Born and raised an hour north of Toronto is where I grew up with English at home and French at school. I was expected to learn French on a first language basis through francophone schools. Because of my education and community I have a strong sense of franco-ontarian culture.

I completed my Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education bilingually. More than half of my courses were done with French as the language of instruction and the rest was in English. I studied psychology, sociology, philosophy, education, and French.

Currently I teach for the TDSB but I have been working in schools for the last 6 years for the public, catholic, Jewish, and private sectors. I have occupied different roles that supported and promoted student growth and success.

I have taught:
- French Immersion for G7 and G8 (French, History, Math, Science, Art, etc.)
- Extended French G7 (French, Geography, English, Drama)
- Core French G7, G8, and G9

For the last three years I have done in home tutoring for French as a second language but occasionally ESL and Mathematics. Beyond that I was an instructor for Kumon for 4 years for math and reading.

Tutoring Experience:

French as a Second Language Teacher
Toronto District School Board

English as a Second Language Teacher
Global Village Toronto

French, Math, English as a Second Language

Kumon Math and Reading Tutor Centre

Tutoring Approach:

In depth approach to writing (grammar, vocabulary, style, etc.) and reading (pronunciation, rhythm, understanding, etc.).

I provide worksheets and activities to do at home to help students build confidence and interest in the language.

Tutoring can be focused on homework and projects or a matter of general self-improvement.
