Information About Priscila - Markham tutor
I am Brazilian and have recently graduated from Law School. My passion, however, has always been teaching and because of that, I will pursue a master and further on a PHD in order to become a law professor. In the meanwhile I enjoy my free time reading, learning new languages and offering private lessons to whoever is struggling at school or just wants to catch up on some Portuguese or English. I can also help kids with maths; despite not studying a subject related to it I have always loved mathematics during High School and even took calculus! I have only chosen to become a lawyer to be able to fight for a fairer system but maths is certainly a passion of mine.
I have tutored kids from 4-10 years of age in subjects such as English and Portuguese. During 3 years of high school, I tutored math after class to kids struggling to learn the subject as an extracurricular activity.
I think learning can't be boring and mostly for children you have to make it fun otherwise they won't take the class seriously. When teaching languages I seek to talk about movies, tv shows, music or any subject that is of interest to the student. I assign movies for them to watch and we discuss it later. While they are having a fun conversation about something they enjoy, they are also learning the language as a bonus! I also pay attention to the grammar and pronunciation mistakes they make while speaking and plan classes to fix them. For example: if a kid always struggles to speak about a past event, I will plan 2 or 3 classes explaining how the past tense works and how they should use it and then we will practice a lot! I believe learning a language can be easier if you enjoy it and that`s what I attempt to bring to my classes.
When tutoring math I focus on the child`s homework and always try to teach them what they will learn next in class so they already have an idea of what's coming up and can catch up whatever the teacher explains way easier.
