關於我

Thank you for showing interest in my profile!

My name is Gia (pronounced g-yah) and I am a native English Speaker from Canada. I was born in Quebec and raised in Ontario. Apart from English, I am well-versed in conversational Hindi. By profession, I am an elementary school teacher who specializes in equitable education. To complement my teaching experience, I also served as an international English teacher in India, teaching within the Dalai Lama’s monastery. I am also a certified yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda teacher – and following this path is perhaps my most notable passion in life. Apart from this, I am an avid foodie, dancer, traveler, and bookworm!

I truly believe that we are all lifelong students and serve as teachers for one another. As someone who struggled considerably with learning difficulties growing up, I know the trials and tribulations that one faces when acquiring new knowledge. Given my own experiences of learning French as an adult, I also am able to deeply identify with the journey of learning a new language - both the frustrations and the excitement. A supportive and engaging teacher can make a world of difference! My teaching style is rooted in compassion and patience. I differentiate my teaching based on the needs of the student, in which I provide multiple opportunities for learning using various sensory techniques (i.e., auditory, visual, kinesthetic, etc.). Teaching should never be presented as a one-size fits all model because just as we are all unique, so are our learning styles.

As a professional teacher, I am a strong advocate for informal learning environments. The power of a simple conversation is immeasurable. Informal learning environments promote feelings of security and confidence. What this means is that the higher thinking level regions of your brain are activated. You are more engaged, focused, and receptive to learning new information. So let’s sit back, relax, chat… and learn!

Believe in your ability to learn a new language and you’re already half-way there. Through exposure and practice, I will do my utmost to help facilitate you in the areas that you would like to explore (i.e., pronunciation, vocabulary, proper word usage, listening, common phrases, etc.). Most of all, I will work with you to help build your confidence, all the while having fun!

If I sound like someone you may want to connect with, just hit the button and give me a shout!

Wishing you the very best on this exciting journey of learning and growing.
