About Paul

I am a retired French teacher with more than thirty-five years experience, working with students of all ages and levels. I hold a B.A. degree and a M.A.T. degree in Education with concentration in French studies. In addition, I was chairman of two language departments, supervising and evaluating ten colleagues for fifteen years. My past studies included summer course work at the Alliance Fran├žaise in Paris. Since retirement, I have taught online French to over one thousand students from all around the world; Canada, Australia, Kuwait, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Florida, California. These individualized lessons were successfully delivered via Skype on a day and at a time that was convenient for the student.

Having taught French for many years, and experienced several shifts in methodology, from strict translation, audio-lingual method to total immersion. These varied experiences have allowed me to cater to the student's particular learning style. My approach is to foster communicative competence, i.e., being able to "get the message across", without fear of making mistakes. As the student progresses and gains self-confidence, corrections are made in pronunciation, vocabulary enrichment or grammar. I have also helped students who were preparing for discreet point standardized testing which favors precision in response, grammar or comprehension.
