About Francoise

Cultural awareness has launched me into foreign arenas throughout my life. As such, I have become a passionate linguist. First, as a teacher, I mastered two languages simultaneously. I reveled in transmitting to my students the expertise I acquired in achieving total fluidity in their chosen language. I derived great satisfaction in helping them overcome the fear of the ridicule, in serving as artistic model for them to draw on their own life histories, in teaching them to articulate them in the targeted language, in showing them how language is changing, in highlighting local colors in literature and regional writers, in creating a climate that fosters the freedom needed to give free reign to their creativity, while impressing upon them the value of auto discipline.

I bring to teaching languages, not only the methodologies; but also, a world of experiences that enables me to discover the potential in my students for materializing their dreams. It is this subtle awareness that elevates my teaching experience to being a mentor.

Depending on my students' talent and level of difficulty, I apply the appropriate methodologies and strategies to ensure fluidity and enjoyment in the process of achieving desired results. This could entail the application of the Berlitz method with tourists; or, business executives who may be deployed into a French cultural environment and need to assimilate the lingo through clear instructions, concrete vocabulary, mime, objects, pictures and a careful grammar approach.

I can follow the Home Schooling guidelines when tutoring a young student who is home schooled.

I assess the needs and purposes of my High School students. I am very experienced and well versed into a wide range of problem solving while deciphering the ways my students learn. From the 9th to the 12th to AP classes, all my students are encouraged to discover grammatical rules so that the focus may be placed on listening, speaking, reading and ultimately writing within the limits of my students' active vocabulary.

Finally, my desire is that my students become so inspired that they will be utterly overwhelmed by the feeling and the awareness that they are capable of speaking only in their target language.
