French tutoring/lessons

20


20 per hour Virtual OK

I have studied and taught a number of languages so I understand what it's like to try to learn one. I'm very patient & consistently get good reviews for tutoring & teaching. I can answer questions, give you free internet resources that are fun to keep you in motion. I try to practice interactive teaching methods involving all the senses based on recent brain research. I can give you some suggestions of websites that have fun videos, book or cartoons to read as well as places to meet people in real life to practice your skills. My experience is, if we can find an activity that you enjoy (films, TV, books, conversation group), it greatly increases your motivation & fluency. I'm happy to work with you on a textbook that you have from a previous or current class, or we can use web based materials.

We can work on conversation, comprehension, reading, speaking, grammar, pronunciation, accent or whatever aspect you're having trouble with.

After the first session we can set up multiple lessons

My first French lesson with Marty went great. We went over strategies for picking up vocabulary and fluent speaking, pronunciation tips, some self-lea...rning resources, and even assigned "homework". I'm looking forward to continue learning with Marty - would recommend. show more
