EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
I studied at the University of Toronto, double majoring in French and Psychology and minoring in English. I also have a Master's Degree in Theological Studies.
I worked in Montreal in full-time bilingual call center jobs in the past, and so I speak English and French fluently, with knowledge of the Quebec accent as well as the France accent.
When I was young, I studied in a French Immersion program, learning French intensively since I was in kindergarten.
I grew up with a Montreal-born French-speaking father as well.
I have trained French teacher candidates who were trying to pass their Ontario French Teacher's exam. I also teach Business French.
During Covid-19, I have taught English to students all across Canada. My English students range from elementary school age to older adults. I teach Business English and French, Conversational English and French, High school essay writing, spelling, and grammar.

Martina is a very good teacher!! I recommend her.
My son has been doing online learning since September 2020. He has been in french immersion since JK and his board does not offer french immersion for online learning. We were concerned that our son would loose his french over the 2020/2021 school year. Thankfully, with Martine's tutoring, our son is on track with his french learning. He looks forward to his twice weekly tutoring sessions with Martine. We are very grateful that we found Martine at the beginning of the 2020/2021 school season. We would highly recommend her tutoring services.
I learned my french at a faster pace, and was able to speak conversational french within a matter of 3 months. This helped me professionally, and I eventually transitioned from an english agent to a bilingual agent at my workplace.
I’ve been learning English from her. She is very friendly so I feel comfortable studying with her. I’m sure my English speaking skill has been improving since I met her She’s best of best teacher ever. I recommend her❤️❤️❤️
Martine is a professional and attentive teacher. taking lessons with Martine was beneficial for me. I will recommend to anyone who wants to learn English
My 8 years old daughter Grace is very happy to have Martine as her French tutor since the beginning of COVID-19 locked down. Martine is very knowledgeable and kind to kids. She also wrote class notes in detail to help parents understand how the learning goes. We are happy to keep working with Martine.
Martine is lovely and my kids really enjoy learning french from her. Our 3 boys aged 8, 10, and 11 have all said that they "hate French class at school", but Martine makes their lessons fun and the hour class flies by. They have already learned a lot from her. Thank you Martine for helping our kids learn French!
Martine has done a fantastic job working with my child to support his math, reading, and French skills. Martine is kind, patient, highly organized and knowledgable. I would highly recommend her skills.
