About Richard

Salut! My name is Richard and I can't wait to help you learn French! Whether you're someone who is just starting off or would like to re-hash those skills you haven't used since high school, you've come to the right place. As someone who has been a French "enthusiast" for over 15 years, I look forward to sharing my appreciation of the French language with you! As a recent graduate from the Gettysburg College Department of French (Gettysburg, PA) and an alumnus of the Institute for European Studies (Nantes, France), I have gathered the skills to effectively teach at both the elementary and college level.

Tutoring is such a rewarding experience for both the tutor and the "tutee." Each of my students has taught me an important lesson in embracing differing learning strategies which has helped me to better personalize my lessons to create a learning environment that is dynamic as well as informative. It seems as though every single year our world becomes more and more interconnected and as a result, language skills are becoming increasingly more important. Learning a second language can give you an EXTREME advantage over other applicants when on the hunt for a new job.

In May 2016, I received a BA in French from Gettysburg College (Gettysburg, PA) and was awarded the Departmental Service Award for my pedagogic contribution to the department during my four year college career. I was a Departmental Peer Learning Associate of French (Gettysburg College - Gettysburg, PA) and am currently working as a Teaching Assistant with the Centre international d'études pédagogiques (CIEP) and the French Ministry of Education in the Orléans-Tours region of France.

Interested? Feel free to contact me to get things started! I am willing to travel up to 30 miles from my home town and have an extremely flexible schedule. Send me a message with any questions about scheduling or rates and I will reply as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you! à tout de suite!

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 about 5 years of experience tutoring enthusiastic language learners of all ages! I have lived in France for about 6 months and plan to return in 2016 to teach English with TAPIF (government-run language learning program). I have been tutoring elementary-level students at Gettysburg College and the Ocean Township Intermediate School for the past two years and look forward to continuing for years to come!

Very Patient — He is very patient. My daughter struggles with ADHD and mood issues and he is very understanding. Learning French is less important than the importance of her talking to a teacher and learning during the lesson without the pressure of homework. ...
