If you are looking for an authentic and committed French tutor that has profound love for the French language and a strong commitment in creating an engaging and dynamic classroom environment, you knocked on the right classroom door. One where students feel comfortable to explore, question, and express themselves in French.
Let me introduce myself as a dedicated and passionate French tutor specializing in teaching children and teenagers. I am a native French teacher from France. I have graduated with a Bachelor of Foreign and French Language at Charles de Gaulle Lille III. Also I have a diploma in teaching French as a foreign language (DAEFLE). Furthermore I have been working as a French teacher for 6 years now in several schools and countries (Colombia, Mexico and Canada) including 4 years at the French Alliance of Vancouver teaching to French Immersion students. That's why I master the French Immersion Curriculum thanks to my BC teaching experience.
I understand that language acquisition is not just about grammar rules and vocabulary lists, but also about incorporating interactive activities, games, songs, and stories. By using a variety of teaching methods, I ensure that your children actively participate in the learning process, making each lesson an adventure.
I strongly believe in the power of collaboration between educators and parents. As partners in your children's education, I am committed to maintaining open lines of communication. Indeed I will provide regular progress updates, offer suggestions for at-home practice, and be available to address any questions or concerns you may have.
Classes can be online via Meet or in person as well. Choose the option that suits you best.
Thank you for considering me as your French tutor for your children.

Here's an opportunity to interact and exchange culture/language with Korean students this Summer. From July 31 to August 10, there will be a summer camp for students from Korea aged 6 to 14 years old. The event will be held at the SFU main campus in Burnaby.
We are looking for buddies and volunteers to participate in the program, which consists of various activities, games, trips, and more!
There will be fun K-pop dance contests, language exchanges, Korean food challenges, etc. to mutually explore the cultures of Canada and Korea.
This opportunity is open to both students and adults (parents) of all ages and can choose to participate as little or as much as possible. We can accept a limited number of students into our full 2-week program (Monday-Friday) as participants where they can spend the whole day with us at no cost, For the avid outdoors type, we are also looking for volunteers that would like to go on a camp trip (July 22-July 28) together.
Please email Stu Hong (parent of Sarah and Shin Hong) at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I would like to offer my tutoring services for this upcoming summer. I am a French Immersion teacher. I am very familiar with the new BC curriculum. I have taught grades 1 to 8. I am looking to tutor children privately for a few hours a week via Google Meet. I am available to teach all subjects from the elementary curriculum, specializing in French lessons for younger students. I have a Masters in Education in Second language learning from SFU and a French Immersion specialization from UBC (B.Ed. in French Immersion).
I have graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree at McGill University in Montreal, where I specialized in Linguistics and Education. Furthermore, I have completed my Masters' degree in Education, specializing in Second Language Acquisition at Simon Fraser University. I have a Bachelor of Education from UBC specializing in French Immersion. I have also lived in France for a few months and in Quebec for five years.
Please send me an email, if you are interested and wanted to discuss further.
Tennyson playground was the place to be seen on Thursday, May 11, when we partied until dusk at the Spring Fling. Thank you to the school administration for allowing us to host the party and for being so flexible and supportive of our plan changes.
At the last minute, we decided to take advantage of the perfect weather, and moved the disco to the courtyard so the kids, parents, and teachers could dance in the open air. DJ BFAD played one crowd-pleaser after another, and had the audience jumping and singing the entire night.
There was rock painting and decoration making in the pod for the creative crew and those who wanted to take a break from the dancing, and there were some sports day games in the playground for the more competitive kids. "It was lovely to be outside in the sun, listening to the music and chatting with friends while the kids danced and played," said one happy parent.
Another big hit at the Spring Fling were the face-painters who didn't stop decorating children's faces all night. And I should let you know that the face painters said they had a super time and that "all the children were so nice," so kudos parents for raising such lovely kids.
It was fantastic to see Mme Kerri and members of the SOGI club hosting a table at the Spring Fling where they sold crafts by donation to raise funds for Rainbow Refugees, a Vancouver based not-for-profit that promotes safe, equitable migration and communities of belonging for people fleeing persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or HIV status. Thank you for giving your time to attend our event and raise money for such a great cause.
Thanks to the delicious baked goods that were generously donated by families and the two food trucks, Meet2Eat and Tin Lizzy Concessions (who sold the grilled cheese sandwiches and poutine), no-one went hungry.
Of course none of this could have happened without the wonderful volunteers who helped out on the night. A big shout out to the parents who worked the concession and bake sale, to those who help kids with the arts and crafts and those who volunteered to work security and the door and were re-deployed to run games and other activities. Thank you; you're wonderful!
And, last but not least, thank you to Margaux, Sarah, Jenny, Janice, Carmen, Trish, Darren and Orla who planned and organized the night and made it so special for the kids.
