About Joseph

My ambition is to ease all frustrations of those who struggle with French. In general, learning a new language comes easily to some--true--but not always to some. I believe that in order to learn any language, one must exercise sufficient interest, effort, and commitment to practice, memorization, and immersion. It is my belief, furthermore, that oral proficiency can be attained through consistent conversation both inside and outside of instruction time.

My philosophy about teaching is principally oriented toward the practical application of the target languade. Ovid said, "Habits change into character." In this case, counter to traditional language pedagogy, students must be constantly engaged in using the language so as to create associations and make the language an integral part of their lives. This is the key to language acquisition and, ultimately, the goal of fluency. Second to this, I believe that increasing students' confidence

I can personally attest to the aforementioned in terms of my own experience with French. Over the course of approximately eleven years, from middle school through high school, and 6 years at Cabrini College, I have studied French language, including advanced composition, conversation, phonetics, and civilization. During this time, I was able to advance my fluency through cultural immersion which included two visits to France and Tunisia, as well as daily practice, including: reading, writing, and audio-video immersion (television and films).

During my second year at Cabrini College, I was afforded the opportunity to tutor French at my leisure to students of French 101 and 102. It was shortly thereafter when I discovered my ambition to teach French. It thrilled me greatly to see students have newfound confidence, not only in the material itself, but also in their own abilities to learn a new language. Now, as a tutor, and teacher in the future, I seek to inspire new students at all levels (secondary and post-secondary) and abilities to develop new talents and even discover a new passion in their lives.
