Information About Yan
This is how 2 referees rated Yan:
I am a certified educator (in English and French) with a Bilingual BA degree in English and French Language & Literature (Double Major) as well as an MA degree in English Literature. I have won various awards, including Departmental Prizes for academic excellence in both of my areas of concentration. I have over 8 years of experience tutoring students of various grade levels.
In addition, I possess a combination of patience, tenacity, kindness and enthusiasm—qualities that a competent teacher needs in order to instill a love of learning in his/her students.
Please note: As of 2020, I am no longer able to travel for tutoring. All sessions will thus be held online via Skype. If you are still interested, please do not hesitate to drop me a line!
I have considerable experience in one-on-one and classroom teaching with students of various grade levels. I am currently a French Immersion teacher at the Primary level with the YRDSB.
When dealing with linguistic difficulties, I utilize the following methods:
-Enriching and expanding your vocabulary to heighten expressivity in written and oral communication
-Correcting your grammatical mistakes (written and oral) and strengthening your grammatical knowledge with drills and exercises
-Developing strategies for reading and comprehending texts with maximum efficiency
