Where are lessons held?
For the convenience of both student and teacher, I offer lessons online with Skype. Lessons may also be held in person from my home near Uptown in Victoria, BC.
How frequent are lessons?
Most of my clients have weekly or twice weekly lessons at a set time to ensure consistent results. However, if you cannot commit to a set time, you can also book in based on mutual availability. After the initial lesson, you will gain access to my online booking system to schedule yourself in as you wish.
What is your teaching methodology?
I function as a language trainer for my clients. I use my many years of experience both learning and teaching languages to create an environment in which you can succeed. I have a deep understanding of linguistics, grammar and history allowing me to answer almost any language question you may have! Above all, I keep my lessons conversation focused, engaging and fun.
What materials do you use?
For beginner Spanish and German students I have written my own combination workbook/textbook. At the intermediate and advanced levels I use other textbooks.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept e-transfer, Paypal and major credit cards.
What is your cancellation policy?
I offer a convenient 24-hour cancellation policy.
Do you offer lessons for children?
As my curriculum and training is more adult focused I currently offer lessons to those aged 14 and older, or grade 9 and up.
