About Francis

Dear Student,

I have studied Spanish in Spain for six years, and I have taught languages in French-speaking Ivory Coast for three years. I have a Bachelors degree in both Spanish and French and I have taught them on three continents for more than ten years (Europe, Africa and the U.S.A.).
I have been tutoring for the Club.Z InHome Tutoring Service for the past two years while at the same time teaching Spanish and French in a High School in the Boise Independent School District. I also taught the same languages in the Memphis City Schools system in Tennessee for two years. In all of these places, I have taught and tutored student from grade 7 to 12 in both languages.

Additionally, I have tutored students (including adults), whose main aim was to improve their oral skills in the language. That was the most common tutoring goal when I tutored people in French in Spain, and in Spanish in the Ivory Coast.

My tutoring approach involves first finding out the objectives of the student in seeking the tutoring. Then I verify the current level of the student and then devise strategies to move the student toward their goal.

If you would like to improve your language skills, then I am ready to help you.
Thank you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

French

I have been teaching both French and Spanish in the High School in the Boise School District for the past two years. Prior to that, I taught French and Spanish in the the Memphis City Schools in Tennessee for two years.

During the last two years that I have been teaching in the Boise School District, I also did tutoring in both languages for the Club-Z group, which provides tutoring services. I still do tutoring in French and Spanish for that group.

In terms of methodology, I usually prefer to talk with the student to get an understanding of their goals. Then I verify their current level in the language, and finally, I design lesson plans for them.

TOEFL

I took the TOEFL myself some time back, when I wanted to come and study in the United States.
That experience gives me a perspective, not just about preparing to get the questions right, but also about how to confront a test that may be steeped in some foreign cultural expectations.
Preparing students to overcome their psychological and cultural barriers in taking the TOEFL is a task which is made a bit easier when one has gone through the process under similar circumstances. That gives me extra qualifications to tutor people for the TOEFL.
