I am a passionate student and teacher of languages, linguistics and their attached cultures. I bring the same degree of passion to the classroom (or tutoring session) as I would expect of my own teacher. Language learning is not easy, however the largest factor in struggling to learn a language (especially with respect to younger learners) is a lack of interest and/or interesting instructor. I am a Canadian who grew up in a bilingual region in the north of Ontario, bordering Québec, and I grew up with two languages and am well aware, through education and personal experience, of how languages are learnt and I aim to offer an engaging and interesting (and, of course, effective) approach that includes activities and culturally intriguing materials. Additionally, I have lived in Québec City and in Spain and look to bring real-life cultural materials to the lessons to maintain a high level of interest and integrity.
