Hello! My name is Hannah. I am married and have two children that I home schooled. They are now getting into college. I have a passion for learning and teaching foreign languages, and I am really looking forward to getting back into tutoring and teaching the French language. I believe I will bring a richness in tutoring because I originally come from a country where French and English are the official languages. As a result, I can speak, read, and write the language. I have also had the privilege of traveling to some of the French speaking countries like France, Switzerland and Cameroon to experience their rich cultures and languages. My love for the French language led me to pursue a degree program in French and English Literature at the University of Wisconsin in Stevens Point (UWSP). I have gained some experience teaching French in several of the grade and high schools in the western suburban area of Chicago, which I enjoyed immensely.

I believe I am a fun, kind and loving individual and will bring a lot of creativity in the student's learning experience. When I used to teach, I would rarely speak in English and the students loved that because it encouraged them to speak and become comfortable in expressing themselves in the language. I am also very flexible and patient, and I think this helps the students to have a more relaxed and fun atmosphere to learn.

I am committed to giving a hundred percent of my time and energy to ensure that students are satisfied with the instruction they are receiving. Looking forward to putting my skills back to work.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and know a little bit about me.

French

COURSE DESCRIPTION FOR BEGINNING FRENCH
Initially I would like to assess the level of the student to determine where to begin with the lesson.
This is a basic outline of what I would begin with for a beginner in French
1. INTRODUCTION
In this section, student will learn greetings, and how to introduce themselves, say their names where they are from and find out about the other person. They would learn to say if they understand and speak English and/or French and ask if the other person understands and speaks English and/or French.
Student will learn to say excuse me, please, thank you and goodbye, yes and no.
2. FAMILY
Student will learn the different names of family members and also how to introduce them to a second party.
3. ALPHABET A-Z
4. NUMBERS 1-100
5. VOCABULARY
6. GRAMMAR
In this segment, student will learn the different tenses and how to conjugate them. Example: regular present
-er and common irregular verbs like: avoir, être, aller, etc
Gender /Masculine and Feminine: un, une, le and la.
Pronouns/stress : mon, son, ta, /moi, toi, lui eux, etc.
Questions words like : est-ce que, qui, quoi, comment, etc.
The goal at the end of the course is to have the student able to have a basic conversation with a native speaker using sentences like:
Bonjour, je m’appelle Jeanne, comment vous appelez-vous?
Est-ce que vous et Français/Française ?
Est-ce que vous comprenez l’Anglais ?
Je suis Américain/Américaine.
Lessons will be tailored according to the level of each student.
