I am pleased to announce that i can now offer some family tutoring.
We had an excellent first session with Philippe. He was very observant as to our language level, and offered helpful suggestions. We enjoyed the session.
Philippe takes a very flexible approach, tailoring his lessons carefully to the level and needs of the student. His latest exercise, which I am finding very helpful, has six steps:
1. I select a passage in English that interests me and translate it into French (homework).
2. I record my translation on a tape recorder (homework).
3. Philippe comments on and corrects the written translation (in class).
4. Philippe listens to my recording, comments and corrects my mistakes (in class).
5. Philippe records the passage for me (in class).
6. I listen to the recording and attempt to emulate it, accent etc. (homework).
A lot of mileage out of a simple little exercise.
There are several ways to help someone in demand of tutoring. I found after many tutoring experiences that one good one is to always stay focus on the interest of the student in learning; meaning that the student has to be looking forward for the next lesson with some excitement of new material and revision of the old one.
Keeping the learning experience a happy one seems to help a lot.
Philippe is an absolutely wonderful French tutor. He has been so good with my daughter that we now want him to start tutoring us as well! We couldn't be happier.
