I base my classes on what the individual needs help with whether it be total beginner level (primary) or more advanced and make it as relaxed as possible as I know not every student thrives in a classroom environment and prefers something more calm.
I teach via Skype all levels and help with homework and exam preparations. I have also worked with professionals who needed to prepare to work with French colleagues in large international projects. I adapt my lessons to the needs of the individuals.
As I was saying before I'm not a teacher, but I've been a student for years, so I know that sometimes you just need a little push, someone native who can help you in a way a bit less formal. I can correct and help with homeworks, help with spoken French (conversation, pronunciation), teach you all you need to know if you want to travel to a French speaking country.
Usually, I work with beginner to intermediate, but also with advanced students. I try to be very systematic yet sensitive to your needs. For example, I employ the Socratic method of eliciting an oral and/or written reply from you is an effective way to develop a solid understanding of material.
If possible, I try to give lessons related with the field of study of my student (in my class, I asked a Irish student to translate science papers). I usually "mix" famous french books, songs and series/movies to teach as entertainingly as possible.
I completed my degree (BA Hons French and Spanish Studies with Italian) at Lancaster University in 2010. I lived in both Brussels and Bilbao during that time as part of my year abroad, where I studied Law, History and Philosophy. I have always loved travelling and teaching and I worked as a tutor whilst studying at university and decided to become a teacher in my final year.
I personalize lessons depending on the student's individual needs. I begin by assessing the student's capacities and building off of that knowledge to push the learning limits. I like to focus on people that are new to the French language. As learning a new language is challenging, I always stay positive as a teacher.
Language lover who loves to both understand the nuances in language and to teach them. I have been helping ones to learn French for about three years now. I offer lessons to students in middle school and above and of course to adults and to anyone having a keen interest in learning the language. Having learned French on my own I know the frustrations of learning the language.
My teaching method is based on the practical, the best and fastest way to learn, I like to adapt to the student but understanding the demands of the current world or the priorities that can be had. I prioritize trying to speak the language immediately and in this way generate good discipline and practice in learning.
I like working with the child in a fun and less academic way. Through games, activities or gestures so that the sensory memory is more developed and the child retains better. My classes are for younger people. I can also adapt for adults with more classic courses.
I strongly believe in inquiry-based learning in which you are the pilot of your own learning. You learn best through your own discoveries and your own mistakes. I will be there to guide you down the right path, more like a GPS, but it is up to you how much you want to learn.
I evaluate every students strengths and areas in which growth is needed. I concentrate on improving listening comprehension, writing, reading, and most importantly speaking skills. I make the language relevant to the student's life and interests. Knowledge of a second World Language is an essential 21st century skill.
My educational philosophy is to teach in a holistic setting, to understand the child as a whole entity. I teach beyond the classroom, that all aspects of life are interconnected. A positive classroom environment is based on strong classroom management. I trust, respect and learn from my students with clear communication and expectations.
I'm a teacher. beyond my experience, it is in the fibres of my being. I like to transmit, explain and learn: in any order and all the time. I have shaped my pedagogical methods with different audiences. I adapt, tailor my speech, popularise (without diluting the meaning) and I adjust the level of vocabulary.
My methodology is "Student-Centered" while I am the authority figure in this model, my students play an equally active role in the learning process. My main role is to coach and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of the French language.
Regarding the French language, I can teach any person who needs to improve. The method depends on the student him/herself.
My teaching method is adaptable to the student's needs and preferred ways of learning. I offer private tuition for intermediate for different purposes, for example, conversation, writing, grammar, improving confidence.
My method depends on the level of the student. I will rely on the knowledge of the person as well as the material accumulated during my year abroad. I also very much like creating custom material based on levels and ages.
MY TEACHING METHODS IS; MAKE MY STUDENT CONFIDENT SO, I WOULD MAKE UP SOME QUESTIONS FOR HIS LEVEL, TELL HIM HOW TO ANSWER IT. THEN HE WILL ASK ME THE SAME QUESTION AND I SHOULD ANSWER THE SAME WAY HE DID ANSWER ME.
I base my lessons on each client! I am try and make the complex nature of French grammar easy and fun. I try and be engaging as possible and not bore you too much during a lesson.
The way I approach teaching varies from student to student depending on their goals and their reasons for learning French. I try to help all my students understand the importance of learning foreign languages by showing them how they can use what they learn in real life situations rather than just in a classroom or exam environment.
Our classes will be as authentic as possible, relevant to reality, and to your specific needs. So, tell me what you want to learn or what you are looking for, and I adapt. In addition, as I use a pedagogy adapted to your learning style (visual, auditive, kinesthetic ..), accompanied by good atmosphere, we will put your brain at ease to learn;) So no stress, the laugh instead.
I like to use as many resources as possible when trying to learn something new, especially a language. For example, we could listen to podcasts in French, read French children's books, practice conjugation with games from sites like conjugemos, and read real French news articles instead of just doing boring worksheets.
I believe that learning is easier when students have fun, so I create material that involves playing games and doing activities. As a linguist, I have a structural approach, using what languages all have in common as a base for a smooth learning progression and an understanding beyond words, including non verbal communication.
As I would like to tutor an array of students, I will approach every student's lessons individually to suit their needs. After discussing with the student and/or his or her parents about the student's difficulties with the subject matter, I will come up with a lesson plan.
I really love French! It is my first language and it will forever stick with me always. Even though it is my first language, I have studied it from primary school and I'm still doing it as degree with law! I really want to share the love of the French language with students of a younger age, even though learning another language can be really difficult.
I offer lessons with the goal to help everyone who wishes to be more confident in their level of French, whether it be students preparing their exams, professionals dealing with French-speaking customers, or anyone who hopes to become fully fluent.
My approach is interactive and I work with movies clips, radio shows, texts, pictures... I think that a teacher must start with the basics (grammar, conjugation ...), then with meaning and vocabulary and in the end, fluency and pronounce.
I will start with the basic, the vocabulary, then you will learn the grammar. I tend to teach in a relaxed atmosphere. I will repeat as many times as needed for you understand :) You will be able to see your progress, i am a native french speaker, so what better way to learn the language.
Having achieved a French Baccalaureat, and having chosen to integrate French modules into my Degree - as well as assisting the University in developing their library collections of French primary and secondary source materials - I am well-placed to work with individuals approaching the French language from both the academic and more 'informal' angles.
