Former English Major who Spoke French at Work Every Day for Five Years

Methodology

The questions should be: "What would be my teaching methodology?", because this will be totally new for me.

I think the ideal setting would be a virtual meeting where we would sit and chat as if we were in a coffee shop or sidewalk café. If you had certain things in mind beforehand, I could come prepared with ideas for our conversation. Or, if you wanted me to bring my ideas of what we could work on, I would be happy to do that as well.

Background

While I have never taught formally, I do have a lot of experience helping non-native French speakers learn key vocabulary and important expressions in French. In addition, I have been lucky enough to use French at one of my former jobs. So I have a good understanding of everyday language and some technical jargon.
