Student Testimonial

Thanks a lot for EC! I attended EC school for six months from March to September 2020. When I arrived in Montreal, my class was started immediately. When I entered my class, I was happy because there were fewer Japanese students than I excepted. It means this environment was good for studying. I was looking forward to enjoying a school life.
However, unfortunately EC school was closed due to COVID-19. In other words, I could take a class at the real school only one week. I could make only one friend who is from Korea and we entered EC school on the same day. I really wanted to make a lot of memories with her at school… I didn’t have any friends because I came in Montreal all by myself. In other words, I missed the chance to meet a lot of people. I thought about just going back to Japan after school was closed. I decided, instead, to take the online classes offered by EC Montreal. Honesty I wasn’t sure at first about the online classes, however, if I didn’t take the virtual classes, I wouldn’t have been placed in Ana’s class. She is such a good teacher and I really liked taking her class. She often gave me a lot of advice because I couldn’t have confidence in my English and in myself. In addition, my other English teacher, Mariella, gave me advice on how to make my resume and CV even outside of class. I noticed and learned that I could still connect with someone online because of them.
Finally, I overcame quarantine. EC school was reopened on August 31. Finally, I could go to the real school for my last two weeks. I was very impressed with that I could meet teachers for the first time in six months. I could meet great people because I chose EC school. If I didn’t choose EC, I couldn’t meet my best friend! I’m really looking forward meeting her again. If I didn’t choose EC, I couldn’t meet great teachers. And above all, I could get confidence in myself and I have started to like English! Thanks for EC Montreal!!

Teacher Testimonial

Greetings... My name is Souha Ayed and I love teaching. I was born and raised in the beautiful Tunisia. I am an ESL/EFL teacher and I hold a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics and a BA in English Language and Education. My experience includes delivering intensive English programmes to groups of both adolescents from different linguistic backgrounds and adults of different fields of the labour market, tutoring children and adolescents in need of reinforcement with their school work, and helping foreign students improve their writing for academic purposes.

For the past thirteen years, I have taught intermediate and advanced English courses, as well as creative writing and conversation workshops. In addition to class instruction, I have been responsible for searching and adapting material for pedagogical purposes. At present, I am working in EC, teaching English to small classes made up of mostly foreign students.

My philosophy for learning is that each student is unique, and each student learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help students discover their individuality and work alongside them to maximize their potential. I believe learning creatively, and learning though projects. It is my goal to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and having fun. I want students to leave my classroom feeling confident that they can apply what they’ve learned in school to real-life situations. I want my students to feel challenged and to have an enhanced passion for learning.
