About KristinD

About my lessons: I can offer informal, conversational tutoring as well as intensive grammar practice and vocabulary building. I can cater to all levels of learners - beginner, intermediate and advanced. I provide homework sheets for students who are interested. If you send me an email, I will respond within 24 hours. If you send homework to be corrected, please allow up to 72 hours (3 days.) During the session, we can do either Skype with video or without video - this is dependent on the preference of the student. After our session, I will email you a record of our session; any corrections made to your speaking, the new words you learned and grammar revised. This is for you to keep for your personal study, as well as a record of your learning.

About me: I have years of experience teaching people as young as 3 years old up to adulthood; online as well as in a classroom setting. I have been involved with the italki community since 2012 as a teacher, student and community member. I have taught both English and French as second languages; in Canada and abroad. I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Education, and am currently a substitute teacher for the public school board. Although English is my first language, I am a speaker of several other languages: French, Spanish and Swedish at a fluent level, and German at the conversational level. I know first-hand the challenges experienced when learning a new language and I am here to help you overcome that and make the most of your online-study.

**Please note: I understand that sometimes things can come up in life, and prevent you from attending a booked Skype lesson. If you cancel your session at least 24 hours in advance, then I will make sure that the italki credits are returned to you. After this time however, I have already made arrangements to be there for you and have made myself unavailable to other students. For this reason, I expect to be paid for the session if you cancel less than 24 hours before.
