Universitry of Lome (Food Science and Tec)
Regent University (Master's)
Born in a French speaking country where French is the official language, I have learned to speak, write and use French for more than 40 years. My studies were done in French and I graduated by writing my dissertation in French. After my graduation I taught Physics and Chemistry for 4 years at a high school before joining the food industries. Teaching is fun and requires lot of patience. I had lectured to multiple classes and prepared students for final exams with success. During my teaching career I had tutored many students in groups as in one-on-one. My method consisted to establish self-confidence, create passion for the subject, help the students understand, love and master the subject. The tutoring has consisted to repeat what is taught to the student in class, help the student understand and do the homework and also go beyond what is taught in class and required by the program. As each student is different, I had the ability to set a special pace with a student to help master the subject. I currently teach French to my kids. It is a great opportunity to help others to write and speak French like a native.

I strongly recommend French lessons with Benoit. This summer I needed to learn how to read French in order to pass a graduate school French exam. I chose Benoit because of his quick responses to my emails, because he is a native speaker, and because he was enthusiastic about helping me. Benoit's teaching experience was evident from the beginning of the first lesson--he listened to what my goals were, figured out where to begin, and then dove right into teaching me the basics. Foreign languages have always been difficult for me, but I picked up on the basics of French quicker with Benoit than I had with either Latin, Spanish, or a previous attempt at French in the past. I appreciated his patience and and encouraging levity in every exercise we did, which made it feel less like a nerve-inducing class and more like having a coffee with a friendly French speaker. Benoit met me at a library that was convenient for me and always had a full lesson prepared in advance but was also willing to take a detour over the course of the lesson if I had something I had a question on or wanted more practice on. Great experience, highly recommended.
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.
Graduate in Food Science and Technology I taught Physics and Chemistry at High school for 4 years before join the food manufacturing world. I taught the subject to more than 200 students each year. I have the experience of group and one-on-one tutoring. I have the ability to help the student understand Chemistry, to solve problem and to love the subject.
I was born and grew up in a country where French is the official language. French is my primary language and I used it for more than 40 years. As an experienced teacher I have the ability to teach the language to anyone who needs help and would like to speak French like a native. My teaching or tutoring method consisted of helping the student to love, understand and master the subject. With passion and determination I helped many students achieve their goal.
With my teaching and tutoring experience in Physics and Chemistry, I can provide lot of support and help to students struggling with Analytical or Organic Chemistry. I am a current VCU student and my major is Chemistry.
