About Brigitte

I lived in the United Kingdom for 30 years and gained my Teaching Assistant qualification from the City of Bristol College. I have experience of teaching across all ages, my oldest student was 81!!

As a native French speaker, I have taught French to small groups of "gifted and talented" students in high school and to adults wishing to improve their French for business and travel. My students enjoyed learning through playing games, reading stories, singing songs, cooking, developing artwork such as collages, etc. along with grammar, conjugation, spelling, etc.

I have been employed as a tutor in an after school club. This was extremely popular with parents who wanted their children to improve their understanding of simple concepts such as light, heat, color, etc. Sessions consisted of introducing theory through demonstration, then students participated in simple and fun experiments. I developed skills in controlling classrooms of up to 20 elementary school students.

I have taught in an information technology center for three years, our trainees included students from high school joining us for two weeks of work experience, post-high school teens on the Youth Training Scheme aimed at developing employable skills, and adults returning to work. My role was to design and implement training programs in preparation for exams to assist in gaining recognized qualifications, for example in word processing, databases and spreadsheets. I helped students to develop job searching skills, writing curricum vitaes, and interview techniques. During this time, I became an Associate Member of the Institute of Training and Development.

I passed Grade 5 of the music theory examination with Merit. I also took practical Spanish guitar exams up to Grade 5 which I passed with Distinction.

I home-schooled my 3 children for 2 years when they were in elementary school.

My approach to tutoring is to enjoy the subject, and to help students overcome their difficulties.
