Bonjour! :) I am a French teacher specialized with kids, my name is Ophélie and I am from France.
Are you looking for a French teacher to play and talk in French to your toddlers or children?
I will be happy to learn more about your children and to introduce my way of teaching!
I am a pedagogue and smiling teacher, usual to teach online with kids. I love teaching the French language to the children (to 10 years old), in 30 minutes classes !
I can't say I am a traditional teacher. Some of the parents love it, some other prefer another method more traditional, so on our first messages, we will talk about it to be sure you find the best teacher for your children!
WHO AM I ?
My name is Ophélie and I am 30 years old. I live in Toronto and I am from France, so I have the French accent.
HOW AM I TEACHING FRENCH ?
During my teaching experience, I understood that having fun (interesting topic, playing a game in french, singing in French, etc...) is the best way to learn, especially for kids!
I adapt my class, depending on the age and the personality of the children :
- games (I create a lot by myself to be really adapted to my students)
- visual help
- news for children
- online book
- a conversation about a topic the children like
Mainly for beginner in french and medium level, who wants to start or to improve French while having fun.
It is a non traditional learning : there is no homework, and we mainly focused on the understanding and talking part, as it is often the most complicated part in a language.
Some of my student are brother and/or sister who wants to take the class during the same time slot, usually the best is to split the hour, 30 minutes for each then we can really focus on their personality / what they like.
WHAT ARE MY EXPERIENCES TEACHING?
I started as a foreign language teacher in Sweden for a teenager class.
Then I was a teacher in Paris for immigrants adults.
Then in Montreal for school native french speaker.
Right now I am in Toronto, teaching french as a foreign language for kids.
I was french teacher assistant in internship for a teenager class during the french lessons. I prepared the class, the activities and lead the class under the control of the teacher who help me sometimes.
The course addresses changes and development within global education policies, and examines school systems from an international perspective. We have a 3 month intership to do teaching in a school, I was french assistant teacher for a whole teenager class.
