" Born in Brussels, I am a native French speaker, fluent in written and spoken English, and a certified, experienced teacher with solid track record in teaching Life, Earth & Environmental Sciences and French to students in international (IBDP, IBMYP, IGCSE) and/or national (Brevet, Baccalaureate, GCE O-Level, ESL, FSL) programs.

My teaching/tutoring work has been ...

"My first tutoring position was with a 7th grade student who had trouble keeping up in class due to a mild learning difficulty. This experience developed in me a great deal of patience and an ability to creatively try to explain concepts when it seemed that mere repetition wasn't working. With that student, I gained experience tutoring up to junior high level math, high school science, english, history, as well as SAT verbal reasoning prep. My experience with another young teen student showed me the importance of developing a quick alliance with the student, enough to at least help them see me as more than someone their parents had hired to ...

" It's hard to say which I enjoy more-- literature or science. I enjoy exploring methods of learning that work best with the student and really value their feedback on my tutoring style. I like to be approachable during tutoring sessions so that the student can feel comfortable enough to bring up any questions he/she might have or interject if I am unclear. I don't like to lecture during tutoring sessions- I prefer sessions that are interactive and allow me to glean the student's understanding, preferences, and progress. I enjoy tutoring because I love growing with the students and helping them find what they need to succeed in their ...

"Sciences are my strong point but I have always been involved with athletics playing varsity ice hockey throughout university. Helping students be successful in school along with being a student athlete is something I feel is very important. I know sciences can seem dry but through the many classes I have taken I am able to be creative in finding the right way to make it interesting for each student.."

"When I tutor, I try my best to place myself in my student’s shoes so that I can see where the problems lie and how we can tackle them together. In most cases, I realize that students have difficulties not because they can’t do the work but because they need to approach it differently, from another perspective. I try to integrate concepts that make learning more enjoyable and relatable for each individual student. No two students are alike and teaching all students in the same way, I feel, is a counterproductive endeavor. ."

"As an artist and techie I frequently call on both my creative and analytical sides when teaching and developing curriculum, especially in the areas of science-arts. Some of my fondest moments have been when a student mastered a complicated skill or concept with ease because they were so highly focused on the “fun” project or experiment. I bring this same creativity and passion to all disciplines from literature and history to science and scholarly research.."
