Any student can improve if they are willing to put in the effort and study time on a regular basis. With time, help and patience from teachers, parents, tutors, etc. they will succeed, but they have to be willing to contribute their part. Getting the child to willingly, not forcefully, participate is the real challenge; once that barrier is broken, there is nothing standing in the way.
I attended English school throughout out Elementary and Secondary school in Quebec, Canada. I then went on to Cegep and later to Concordia University, where I studied French-English Translation, with a Minor in Spanish, and obtained a BA in French Studies.
I have experience tutoring students in a one-on-one environment.
I enjoy gardening, bike riding, skating, and long walks.
