About Alex

Coming from France, I have gone through all my education and social activities in French. I understand the various levels of "formality" or "familiarity" in the language and am able to efficiently guide students around those, which is one the most difficult aspect of a language to master. I also took 7 years of Latin, which give me a deeper understanding of the roots of the language and grammatical rules.

Having studied foreign languages (English and German) in college, I have been exposed to several years of professional teaching that inspired my tutoring approach. From a strictly educational point, I have 2 masters, including one from Georgia Tech, so I do understand the importance of learning support and tutoring!

I have tutoring experience in various subjects but have also been teaching English to students with various levels of knowledge. Additionally, I have professional training experience from the corporate world, which gives me a very well rounded tutoring profile.

As part of my tutoring style, I first like to understand where the student is in his/her learning and what our objectives are. Shooting for grades requires a different approach than trying to have conversational abilities.

Based on that, I will develop a simple curriculum for us to work on, for an agreed period of time.
Each lesson focuses on one or more specific points that we previously agreed on. For new grammar rules or topics, we will use a very straight-forward approach of "explain-apply-test".

At the end of the session, the student will be informed whether the new topic is mastered or still needs improvement. Our curriculum may be adjusted accordingly.

Although very structured, my approach is fairly informal, as I want every student to feel comfortable going through the tutoring process and having as much fun learning as we possibly can!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 immersed in French from the day I was born and have a thorough experience of learning languages from my college years. This gave me some robust tools and exercises on how to improve language knowledge in a student. I have tutored students on several topics and have also taught English as a Foreign Language while in France.
