Guillaume has over 15 years of experience teaching junior and senior French (from Year 7 to 13) at Wakatipu High School, Queenstown. His strength lies in having students engaged through teaching approaches that are student-centred while encouraging them to explore, take risks, collaborate and develop as inquirers. He strives to grow students’ independence and a higher level of thinking to help them make sense of their learning and the world around them.  

And here a few words from Guillaume in French:

Bonjour à tous profs Francophiles et/ou francophones,
En ce beau début d’année 2020, J’ai le grand plaisir de rejoindre l’équipe de Future Learning Solutions. Je suis ici pour VOUS en tant que Conseiller National de Français et avec ce rôle je me mets à VOTRE disposition pour :

  • Répondre (ou au moins chercher la/les réponses) à vos questions.
  • Conseiller et offrir des ateliers pédagogiques, sur la langue, la culture et qui répondent à vos besoins.
  • Partager du matériel, des ressources pédagogiques et sur l’enseignement du français.
  • Supporter, discuter et vous rencontrer dans vos écoles.
  • Créer des liens entre profs et entre écoles.
  • Revivifier la passion de cette belle langue qui est celle de Voltaire.

Bref, en 5 mots : je suis ici pour vous!
