About Jake


Bio

Language has always been my passion. I am an accredited French teacher, but I would also be capable of tutoring middle school students in Spanish.

I adapt my teaching approach to my student's needs which tend to fit into two categories. Students already in class such as middle school students who often need reinforcement lessons and extra practice of things they're already doing in class. This approach helps students succeed specifically in their classes at school, turning that C into a B or...

Language has always been my passion. I am an accredited French teacher, but I would also be capable of tutoring middle school students in Spanish.

I adapt my teaching approach to my student's needs which tend to fit into two categories. Students already in class such as middle school students who often need reinforcement lessons and extra practice of things they're already doing in class. This approach helps students succeed specifically in their classes at school, turning that C into a B or an A.
Secondly I can tutor Student learning autonomously. For these kinds of sessions, I can become the primary teacher by creating lessons and a curriculum based on what the student wants to learn. This could involve bringing in worksheets, reading material as well as just speaking in French (depending on the level).

My strengths as a tutor are my approachability, enthusiasm and creativity to help those students who are frustrated, who don't enjoy it (yet) or simply are struggling with the way they have been learning the language. My second set of strengths is my familiarity with and knowledge of French culture which corresponds especially to people who want to learn French for themselves in hopes of using it for real world use. I've also recently begun teaching middle school Spanish. My knowledge is not as deep but I would still be an effective tutor in this language.

French background:
I lived in three different French cities over the course of three years, most recently as an English teacher from 2010 to 2012 in Lyon and Paris. I completed a Master of Arts in Teaching in order to become a secondary Foreign Language teacher which is my current occupation at the high school leve. Language education is my profession and over the past 4 years I have accumulated a large repertoire of strategies, methods and activities to help others improve their foreign language ability. I've worked primarily with middle school and high school students but I have also tutored adults interested in brushing up on their French to prepare for a trip.

I look forward to getting in touch with you.

ESL/ESOL

I taught English for two years at the university level as well as private individual tutoring. My students ranged from non conversational to fluent. Most of my experience tutoring in English is for those who want to use it in oral communication. We practice, practice, PRACTICE speaking, with mini lessons in grammar and vocabulary. Depending on the student's level and how much preparation he or she would like from me, my fee can be modified.
French

After studying French in college, I spent three years in three different French cities with the sole purpose of improving my French and immersing myself in the culture. I've now spent two years teaching French in a middle school classroom. I also am a tour director for a youth travel company in which I accompany groups of high school students around France for an entire month as part of language immersion/ community service and adventure trip.
