My son has had 3 sessions with Jon so far and has really enjoyed each one. Jon relates the subject to things my son is interested in and has opened his mind to the possibility that he can succeed in learning a second language. Jon answers inquiries and requests for appointments very quickly and is always on time. He is knowledgeable in a wide variety of subjects I would not hesitate a moment in recommending him to any friend whose child needs help in the areas in which Jon tutors.
Thank you Stacy. I am humbled by your kind words. Your feedback validates my belief that the Socratic method is best. Socrates did not teach; he simply asked questions that stimulated thought, response and discussion. Nothing teaches French as well as a repetitive conversation in French. Engaging a student and immersing his mind as much as possible into the new language goes a long way to encourage the student to begin to think in the new language. Furthermore, I have found throughout my own life that the very best way to learn anything - short of the baptism-by-fire method which would be to drop him somewhere in France with nothing more than his own devices - is by regular incremental units, repetition and review before moving on to the next lesson. Lastly I try to encourage students to regularly teach what they have learned to somebody else. This creates a sense of responsibility and a give-back effect that cement knowledge in the mind and firmly root principles in the subconscious.
Jon provides a proven method to learn French. I am getting along very well and am beginning to think in French. His confidence in my abilities and his own vision for me as a French speaker is owed to his passion for teaching. I am looking forward to speaking French fluently with his help.
