I learned French from my father, between birth and 4 years of age and Spanish from my aunt, between three and 11. I took French and Spanish all through school, with a double major in French and Spanish in College (Hunter). I received my M.A. in French from Stanford University, my M.A. in Spanish from Stanford University, and my M.A. and Ph.D. in French from Princeton University.
I approach tutoring as a custom-made session. I listen to my students, learn about their learning styles, and tailor lessons to meet their needs and wants. My goal is to instill the love of learning a foreign language, and to help them achieve what they want.
My method depends on the level of each student. I like to know the person in front so I can adapt my lessons to his tastes and needs. For beginners I first approach the sounds of French to quickly begin to learn the different times of the language.
Every lesson plan is adapted to your needs and wishes. On our first lesson, we will determine together which method is the most efficient for you, according to your level, your objective and your personality. My lessons are : - based on authentic documents (press articles, short films, advertisements, radio programs...
I am a French native speaker from Switzerland and I am fluent in English. I have always enjoyed learning new languages such as English, Italian and German. I would like to teach others my language (hearing, speaking, reading and writing). Don't hesitate to contact me to discuss what kind of help you need.
I offer online French lessons on Skype to all ages and all levels. The first tutoring session consists of understanding my student’s strengths and weaknesses and setting up a plan based on the student’s needs. I am patient and understanding, and I want my student to become skilled and successful. I have successfully helped students get high scores on TEFaQ, TEF and DELF.
Lots of talking and learning based on examples acquisition. In order to produce, you need to induce. Also I tend to let my learners walk by themselves, make mistakes but always watching their backs. I never let anyone down. However the key is the interest and motivation of the student. Everything else should come naturally.
My greatest strength as a French tutor is that I did not begin to learn French until I was 14 years old. Unlike a native speaker who knows French grammar intuitively, I understand what it's like to learn French from scratch. I had an excellent high school French teacher who emphasized grammar.
I am very creative in my teaching methods including cultural immersion to help comprehend all aspects of the language. My classes are tailored to the student’s level, learning style and goals. I firmly in structure and pace to insure results; combined with my dedication and your commitment.
I believe that a tutor is not a teacher, but a guide. I do not try to (re)teach my students the material as that is the responsibility of their teacher/professor. Instead, I clarify any questions they have or try to fill any gaps in their understanding by providing alternative examples and explanations.
I like to first review the basics of French, such as spelling or grammar. I also focus on typical errors that students make like using correctly the feminine or masculine form, or verbs. I like to answer to any questions my students have even if it is not part of their assignments.
My teaching includes using target vocabulary in the area you would like to develop. I apply culture when possible and use simple grammar steps in order to build proficiency over time. I also target listening skills in order to improve in take, prior to targeting out take.
I begin by focusing on the basics of grammar and pronunciation, giving the information in short bites packaged to show their practical value. I teach practical basic expressions. I show how to find, understand, and use cognates. Thus I teach French both for immediate practical value and for deep understanding.
Depending on the student needs, I can offer different styles of teaching to each student. There is nothing like proven methods of starting from the basics; building vocabulary; learning grammar; and a stress on pronunciation and real-life conversational situations.
Trabajo con jóvenes y adultos. Me especializo en la conversación. Hace algunos años creé una metodología para darle clases a personas de habla hispana. Soy una persona muy jovial, muy afable y me gusta que mis alumnos aprendan. La docencia es mi pasión.
my methodology is as follows: determination of the level of student preparation of course content student evaluation the lessons taught are vocabulary, conjugation, spelling and grammar. the didactic means used are: books, slideshows, videos, applications. Free discussions and lectures are organized during class.
I teach students how to teach themselves. My lessons focus on each student's personal interests, emphasizing conversation-building from the first day. Typically, students tell me about their interests, and I supply the vocabulary and grammar to help them express whatever they wish to say.
I use visuals and easy-to-memorize concepts to help students remember words and their meanings. I have taught students from third grade, to college levels. Whether you are looking to learn French conversations or write a paper in French, I can give you the tools, and the knowledge you need to do so.
I am willing to teach anyone at any age and fluency level. I base my lessons on what YOU are struggling with and what YOU want to learn so that we both can see the progress that you desire and deserve.
My teaching methods are very simple, we start with a test to valuate the student’s level, than we start with the basics, grammar and vocabulary...
My teaching technique is based on exchanges and free reflection on different subjects. For me, the most important thing is not to add knowledge to each other, but to learn about it and know how and when to use it.
With French, I prefer immersive learning and try to avoid using English as much as possible. I believe that repetitive exercises are effective for foreign language acquisition. For this reason, I believe it is incredibly important that each student use a workbook of some sort--and I can certainly recommend some great options.
I like to use task based teaching in the classroom which is an approach to second language acquisition that allows students to complete meaningful tasks in the language being taught. Examples of these activities include writing dialogues to read in front of the class and discussion based activities such as how rags to riches is perceived in different cultures.
New on this platform, but Professor since 2016, I teach online and in the Alliance française of Salvador de Bahia. I am native from Reims, in France but I am living as an expatriate in Brazil. The advantage of having a private professor is to have exactly what you need and how you need it. I build my lessons to give you exactly that.
I am an experienced French teacher with a professional clear single subject teaching credential to teach French in California. I live in Murrieta, California. I have studied in Belgium, and have earned my Bachelor's degree in Education from a French speaking University: The Catholic University of Louvain/ Belgium.
I teach based off of the students needs if I see they are a visual learner I will incorporate more visuals or if their kinetic learner I will incorporate movement or touch. I take a very one on one approach with every student.
My teaching method is focused on the students memorizing the material and fully understanding its uses. Foreign languages are hard, but with lots of practice, speaking, and memorization they become more fluent. I also like to implement some of my own activities to help the student grasp the language better.
I like to base my methodology of my students' individual learning styles, and on what they want to learn. I have a fun approach to learning how to master a Parisian accent (tongue twisters, for example!), great mnemonics for remembering vocabulary and verb conjugations, and a wide range of cultural material to pull from for real world learning.
My teaching method is based on a blend of communicative approach and real-life interaction. It uses drama techniques that help with pronunciation and accent reduction and explains grammar and idioms in context so as to fix major notions like a native.
I have tutored at the high school level during my college years while majoring in French and Communications. I have also taught English to two French children in Toulouse, France during months abroad in 2015. My method is half immersion, and analyzing the immersion experience through half engaging and fun grammar study in order to build sentence structure and fluency.

Perfect! Chase is a gifted polyglot. He works hard to tailor the session to the particular needs of the individual. He is also a great source of motivation so I feel very inspired to begin our work together.
Our teachers write articles on their subject to help you better understand it.
