Growing up, I was always fascinated by different languages around the world. This continued into my post-secondary years where I decided to major in Linguistics and take a wide range of language courses, including German, French, and Spanish. I was even fortunate enough to participate in three exchange programs, to Austria, Germany, and Quebec, in order to improve my language skills. Having studied languages all my life, I can sympathize with the frustration and difficulty that comes with learning a foreign language. One of the best tips I have is to draw connections between the student’s native language and the one they are trying to learn - it becomes a bit more bearable when you can view things from a familiar perspective. When I’m not practicing a language or learning a new one, I like to draw and read. The greatest benefit of tutoring as I see it is not simply the mastery of new knowledge, but the confidence and comfort that comes with having a tutor. Tutoring is a great way to get help on a specific subject, but what facilitates that is the one-on-one interaction between a student and a tutor. In such an environment, students have a much easier time asking questions and asking for clarifications, and they can take comfort in knowing that they have someone other than their teacher that they can ask for help.
