Ski Snowboard Instructor & Climbing Instructor

My experience with children

I have a particular sensitivity to work with children. Excellent adaptability, unalterable patience, optimism and an enthusiastic relation as a rule! Getting a grip of downhill sports at all ages is not a trivial task. With safety, support and progress as a starting point, my role as ski instructor for children is also to reveal this cold and sometimes inhospitable environment to the fraternal and inexhaustible playground that it is! My prior experiences has taught me to listen, understand and be able to meet the specific needs of each child: 5 years of summer camp supervision, with age groups from 4 to 17 years in various situation. To push the adventure a little further, I then carried out an internship in nursery, with children from 6 months to 3 years. I've learned the reinforced certainty: the child is not an adult in miniature, if he answers to specific emotional, physical and physiological needs, appropriate approach is needed. It can be learned and can’t be improvised.
