...My patience, creativity, and my relational attitude help me to be an engaging tutor. My aim is to have students feel more comfortable tackling problems on their own, but when needed I am eager to reexplain ideas and concepts in different ways to deepen understanding. Spending time with students in and out of the classroom has taught me a lot about student needs and how to relate to them.
...And so the way I go about helping a student learn it is by speaking to them in french anytime I have to interact with them. I might make exceptions for times when it is needed to speak english, but once I realize the student is capable of understanding French, I start communicating with them in French only. This helps them learn new words and get used to speaking it too.
