Ruth W.

Brooklyn, NY

With a Master's degree in French, I've taught students of all levels for over ten years. In the first few lessons, you'll start to speak in short sentences, and as time goes on, you'll be able to speak in more detail about your life and the world. I use a combination of textbooks, handouts, and personal conversations to help my students progress.

Ruth is a terrific French teacher and I recommend her without hesitation. I am particularly impressed with her broad knowledge of the language and her clear pronunciation, which, without sacrificing authenticity, is music to the ears of intermediate and advanced students. She has an experienced teacher's ability to see any serious deficits her students may have without confusing them with plebian missteps that are, in the end, of little consequence. I can only lament that I didn't have a teacher as good as Ruth when I was learning the language as a teenager.

Baptiste A.

New York, NY

Teaching French has become second nature to Baptiste, because he is passionate about helping others to articulate their vision. It is rewarding to learn about the subject matters that move you, as zealous conversations generally ensue.

About Baptiste

I am a native French tutor who graduated as a French as a second language teacher in 2007. My services have been appreciated in European and American cities where I worked in schools, language centers and privately.

I meet all levels of proficiency with contemporary pedagogics that elicit a genuine eagerness to learn French. The desire to communicate is paramount to learning a language, therefore the methods I use are centered around building report. Unless you are looking for task-specific tutoring, you will most likely follow a standard curriculum and learn the skills to pass DELF exams
or other certifications of French-language abilities. However, your study will revolve around subject matters that you've shown interest for, and I always provide fresh and engaging material to work with.

Please check my website for an overview of who I am, my goals, who I hope to work with and how I go about it.

Thank you for your interest.

About Patrick

Levels Taught: Beginner, intermediate, advanced and corporate level executives, managers and directors
About Patrick
Patrick teaches: Ages 8 and up to the executive level in corporations

Teaching since: September 2002

Overview

My name is Patrick and I was born and educated in Paris, France. I have dual French and United State citizenship. My native language is French and English is my second language. I am proficient in Italian and Spanish as well and I have been teaching French since 2002.

My primary goal is to provide the highest quality language to my learners in a fun, nurt
uring, and culturally-rich environment.

My Students' ages vary. I have taught beginners(as young as age 8)as well as adults who work with corporations sending managers, directors, and senior executives to France, I have successfully taught adults in the business field to comfortably speak conversational French.

I design my lesson to varying students' goals . I can help with accent correction, pronunciation and fluidity. I also teach grammar, assist with readings, writings, translations and interpretations. I find this approach works for varying situations, and I utilize differentiated instruction. Everyone learns at different paces. My goal is to challenge you, and make you comfortable as I present the material in a way that you will find it interesting as you grasp the language. I hope you will understand French, feel comfortable in using it in the classroom, casual business interaction, or in general conversation if you are planning a pleasure or business trip to France.

I enjoy French literature and I incorporate it into my lessons. I find that students can relate to different things, such as artwork, history lessons, or even ordering in a restaurant. Incorporating literarure makes the experience enjoyable, and the rate of success in learning the language has a higher retention rate among my students.

In a tutoring session I will find out what you really need, and I wll help you to achieve your goals. We will work together to discover what areas on which you wish to concentrate;(literature, essay and writing help, pronunciation,reading fluency, grammar, etc.) I will create lesson plans to guide you through your learning process. I believe everyone has the potential to achieve success. I can give youmy word that I will help you make that Happen.
The international exposure to the corporate environment gave me an insight into the importance of cultural awareness and communication skill in various languages. This inside view of the corporate world also enables me to understand exactly what is needed by a corporate client.

I only teach what I know best: the French language and French culture. I have lived and worked in the United States for several years. I can help you compare both countries and establish linguistic and cultural bridges between them.

I emphasize providing professionals with the essential communication skills needed to handle a French corporate environment. The course specifically deals with areas such as telephone conversation in French, a letter, an e-mail, and presenting to a French audience. In addition, I teach communication for corporate meetings in French, French business etiquette, French diplomacy, legal French, travel logistics, and essentials of the French culture.

The course will provide you with the ability to interact more confidently when visiting a French-speaking country or dealing with French-speaking nationals. Taking my course will help build raport, and strengthen relationships with French-speaking colleagues and clients. Also, it will help you demonstrate goodwill and facilitate international communication at both the personal and organizational level.

I am very active with the French American Chamber of Commerce.

EXAM PREPARATION

I also offer guidance and assistance in preparation for examinations, including the TCF, DELF and DALF.
