Certified Teacher of Classics from France; are you ready to learn?
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
Certified teacher of Classics from France, experienced in classrooms and tutoring, I'll be happy to help you learn French or get better at it! I can also tutor in Latin and Ancient Greek. I have a masters degree in French language and literature, and in Classics, with a training in Teaching secondary level. I have worked for 4 years with classrooms of 11yo to 18yo in France and have been tutoring pupils and adults since I was in college.
Every student works at different paces and responds differently to diverse material, so my tutoring method is really to adapt as I learn how the student reacts and feels. We will decide together of a lesson plan including personal objectives, needs relating to school work or contexts, and themes and content that the student will enjoy talking about. I will put focus on the students needs whether it is writing expression, audio comprehension, speaking, grammer, etc, or a bit of everything, but won't let one aspect of learning the language be forgotten to the profit of another.
I enjoy using educative games, photo-video support, and role-playing situations to help pupils remember the material better. I use YouTube extracts or trailers from French movies or series to practice audio comprehension with the help of a fun visual support ; I use books and articles to practice written comprehension and translation ; I use casual conversation and roleplaying scenes to practice speaking, producing sentences, remembering the vocabulary, and feeling at ease with the language ; I use colours and visual creativity to create lesson plans and lessons content that will feel appealing to use and go back into. I give exercices to practice grammar points and depending on time, investment and preferences of the students, I can give small homework. I use the same methods for Latin and Greek, which I teach like a modern language.
