Lesson Details

French

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have been tutoring students and adults for almost twenty years, and I currently teach and tutor one-on-one or via skype during late afternoons, evenings and weekends. Whether you're looking for immediate French homework help or weekly tutoring, I can help you study everything from pronunciation to grammar.Typically use Bien Dit!: Holt French 1.2.3, students books, "grammar & vocabulary" Books, "Allez,Viens" Level 2,"Points de depart" for college students. I'am familiar with the French Curriculum used by the FCPS World Languages.
Tutoring Levels:

Level 1:

You only know the alphabet, and you can't write or speak a word yet. Not a problem, we can go through the basics to get you comfortable.After the first lesson, you'll already know how to have a simple conversation (introduce yourself, ask for directions or order a dish for instance.

Level 2:

You can speak the few sentences that you remember from school, but not enough to feel at ease across the pond. Key grammatical points will be covered, ensuring that both your vocabulary and linguistic skills are prepared for any debate you may encounter in French .

Level 3:

Your level is quite acceptable and you can speak without looking for words every other second, but you need to perfect it. You want to go deeper into the language, as it is very important in French to vary vocabulary for the same idea. Also, you'll need to learn how to avoid common grammar mistakes than even native French speakers do (a lot!).

If you are looking to learn or improve your vocabulary & grammar, I can also tutor you in a natural and enjoyable way without the need for memorization and tedious homework by using a step-by-step short repetitions method which parallels the way you learned your own language as a child. I will provide materials for you to practice in between our sessions. I encourage you to choose personal areas of interest though which we can get you to acquire a command of the French language
If you need immediate assistance for a test or homework : Quizzes, essay, vocabulary or grammar, I can work for short term as well and assist within a very short notice.. I hope you will find French easier, and more enjoyable with me.

Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.
