I am a career educator with 20 years of experience teaching French. While teaching, I also tutored other students in French, outside of my regular students. Both my classroom students and tutor students were consistently successful in French, and I was regularly commended on my teaching style, and how it helped the students really understand and internalize French. My teaching style is fairly traditional, as I believe that learning a language is a very basic part of an educational experience, and therefore should occur in a fundamental way. I am a grammarian primarily. I feel that once a student has French grammar down, he or she can handle the other parts of learning the language easily.
