Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

First session: We covered pronunciation including not saying the last letters of words and how to do R's. We did the alphabet and greetings as well as other basics including I'm hungry, do you have, where is, and the interrogatives. We went over the pronouns, how cava works, and how you respond to it.

The student and I worked on direct and indirect objects after reviewing the imparfait/passé compose. I was happy to see that she had purchased her own copy of the book I lent her, "Ultimate French Review," and has been doing exercises and studying it. She grasped the concept of the direct and indirect object pronouns well, and just needs to keep practicing to get used to the different word order from English.

Went over the student's mid-term and discussed some of the past concepts such as definite or indefinite article usage and certain idioms. Then we looked over chapter 4 on which she'll have a quiz this week. Spent most of the session on oral comprehension and dictation by reading aloud from the book and translating or transcribing, rather than the concepts.

Student A--we finished French 6th chapter playing games to learn numbers better. the student was amazingly on task!
Student B and I watched Le petit Nicolas #10, and then went over the beginning of the transcript for #1 actually reading and looking at the words. Every week we are rereading what we had already read in the transcript and then going a bit further. After which we rewatch the first episode up to that point. After that, we finished French unit 6 as well. He's really getting a hang of listening to French and grasping the meaning.

We reviewed and learned the future tense, the conditional, and phrase that commonly use both tenses with specific French and English translations and meanings. We also did some oral activities to work on pronunciation and fluency.

To prepare for the written portion of her IB exam, the student and I focused on essay organization, sentence flow, and writing strategies. We reviewed one of her written assignments for class, and went in-depth into any vocabulary or questions that came up. Topics included connotations of words, how to stay organized through topic sentences, and adding evidence to support points. I encouraged the student to use a lot of idioms (such as "de nos temps" for "nowadays") to show evidence of her French skills to an essay grader.

Today was a great day! We started off with some conversational scripts about describing people's physical traits and personalities. Then we asked each other about different people we know and what they're like. The student was able to describe family members in French.

Completed lesson 3, reading through, focusing on pronunciation and comprehension. Afterwards, I asked questions related to the lesson for the student to hear fluid, native-sounding annunciation as well as answering in correct, grammatical French.

First student-- we covered many grammar topics to pass the "French 4" test including but not limited to prepositions after aller and venir/ future simple tense/ conditional mood/ si clauses, etc.
Second student- we reviewed verbs in the subjunctive present and briefly covered the subjunctive past to prepare for a test

Student A: We worked on a new vocabulary set and the new topics that will be covered in her upcoming chapter

Student B: We worked on a new vocabulary set and the new topics that will be covered in his upcoming chapter.

This session, I introduced the student to the French language. We practiced the alphabet, numbers, some basic grammar, and some descriptive adjectives. I've asked her to practice numbers as well as using sentences to describe new things for next session.

We spent some time talking about where she was in her French studies and came to the conclusion that her skills were beyond my ability to help her progress. We spent the rest of the session just talking about ourselves in French.

How can a tutor help you master French?

Parlez-vous Français? For many people, learning French opens the door to new relationships and to otherwise unavailable adventures. For others, learning it is a necessity for work or school—in fact, many high schools and colleges require students to study a foreign language, and many careers in today's interconnected global economy look favorably on candidates who are fluent in another language.

Whether you’re learning the basics of French, or simply needing help with conversation or advanced language, specialized French tutoring can be a big advantage. Learning French represents a significant undertaking, and for many people, a considerable challenge. To gain fluency, or even just pass a class, you’ll have to pick up the relevant vocabulary, understand and practice grammar, and be able to comprehensively listen to native speakers. Luckily, with the personalized assistance of a talented language tutor, you can learn French or improve your knowledge of the language quickly and easily. Your French tutor can be an excellent conversation partner, explaining complex grammatical rules and suggesting necessary vocabulary words to succeed in picking up the language. 

The one-on-one format of sessions with your tutor provides an advantage over other methods of instruction by simulating the rapid learning that takes place through immersion in an environment in which French is spoken. From vocabulary and proper pronunciation to syntax, regionalisms and idioms, a comprehensive language learning experience is possible with French tutoring. 

Your skilled tutor can evaluate your current ability to speak, write, and read French. He or she will also discuss your needs or the requirements of your class. A personalized learning plan will be useful to future sessions, ensuring the most important aspects of the language are covered. A capable tutor can conduct French tutoring sessions in immersive French, or explain concepts in English, depending on your experience level and learning preferences. Most importantly, having access to a native or fluent French speaker can increase your confidence in learning the language and practicing basic to advanced conversations.
