A qualified instructor with an extensive background in French can help students at various skill levels enhance their understanding and use of the language.

No matter the academic goal, working with a French instructor can help students reach for success.

How can working with a Philadelphia French tutor near me help me become stronger in French?

Learning French can be a challenging yet rewarding prospect. Becoming a strong speaker could open up a variety of opportunities at the academic and professional levels. As a student, you could fulfill the educational requirements needed to graduate or have the opportunity to study abroad in a French-speaking country. If you are a professional, you could use your knowledge of the language to create job options with your current employer or even find new opportunities across the globe. Whatever the goals are for you or your student, working with Philadelphia French tutors can help them feel more attainable.

Whether you are interested in supplementing current French lessons or enhancing knowledge previously gained, Philadelphia French tutoring can help. During early sessions, your personal instructor can determine your academic goals then customize a lesson plan that aligns with those goals. Since sessions are conducted in a one-on-one setting, you can enjoy your private instructor's undivided attention. If you have a question, you can get an immediate answer. These personalized sessions also give your academic mentor the opportunity to pinpoint areas of strength as well as areas of opportunity for growth. As sessions progress, your private instructor can modify the lesson plan so that you can move past concepts you understand and spend more time on areas that need the most attention.

The French language features many unique elements that students must master to improve fluency. By working with a Philadelphia French tutor, you or your student can gain greater insight into these elements. For instance, French nouns are gendered so they will either be masculine or feminine. Articles in French are also gendered. So, if a word begins with "a/an," its masculine word would be "un" while its feminine word would be "une." In your sessions, your personal instructor can go over these instances to help you better understand when to use one or the other. You can also learn or get reacquainted with practical French phrases often used in conversation like "comment vous appelez-vous?" which means "what is your name?"

To help build you or your student's French knowledge based on skill level and academic needs, your educator can utilize different learning strategies. For instance, if you are an aural learner, your personal instructor could hold in-depth discussions or provide short lectures to help fill gaps in knowledge. If you are a better visual learner, your academic mentor could use items like flashcards to help you grasp vocabulary words and their meanings or remember which letters require accent marks. Your instructor can try different learning techniques until the ones that work best are discovered. The interactive sessions also allow your academic mentor to catch comprehension issues and correct them as they arise.

An amazing benefit of working with a personal instructor is the ability to move at a comfortable pace. If you need to slow down or want to speed up, your academic mentor can easily make adjustments to match that pace. If you need practice speaking the language, your educator can help you through simulated immersion, which allows you to strengthen your pronunciation and pick up nuances in French grammar. Your instructor can set small goals for you to meet one at a time to help improve your self-esteem and overall attitude as a French student.

Can Philadelphia French tutors work with my busy schedule?

A common concern of working with a tutor is the ability to find one that can accommodate a busy schedule. Varsity Tutors understands this concern and takes pride in offering access to flexible Philadelphia French tutoring options. We work hard to connect you with a personal instructor who has the time to meet you or your student when preferred. This way, you don't have to worry about scheduling conflicts negatively impacting the French learning journey.

Students can benefit from the opportunity to work with a Philadelphia French tutor online or in-person. If online tutoring is selected, the student utilizes the Live Learning Platform to interact with a personal instructor in real time. You can communicate about French history and culture through live video chat, enjoy visual instruction about the use of adjectives through a virtual whiteboard, and use a shared document editor with your academic mentor to learn the correct use of the five types of accent marks. If you want to revisit concepts covered during lessons, you can watch previous session recordings.

Learners who enjoy interacting with their instructor in-person can work with an academic mentor in a convenient local setting. We can find an academic mentor who is available and able to meet with you at your home, a local coffee shop, Parkway Central Library, or any other location you prefer.

If you'd like to learn French among other students, Varsity Tutors offers online French courses.

French Tutoring review by Carolyn in Philadelphia, PA
Today we went over the material that is going to be on the student's final exams for French and World History. We began with French, and we reviewed all the different verb forms that are listed on his study guide, as well as his worksheet with possible written questions. We went over vocabulary and culture, and then we also went over the correct use of the 'imparfait'. Then we labeled the world map that will be on his history final. He was very good at remembering even the smallest countries on the map! Then we reviewed the questions that were included on his study guide. There were three rounds of questions on colonialism, industrialization, and imperialism. He knew most of the answers before I even finished reading the question out loud! He said that he was going to study a little more after he got up in the morning before leaving for school. He seems very prepared to take his final exams!

French Tutoring review by Linda in Philadelphia, PA
Today, we translated a song chosen by the student. It allowed us to learn a lot of new vocabulary and work on pronunciation. Next week, we will do the same with a recipe. I already emailed her a link to learn body parts vocabulary as we began that today.

French Tutoring review by Cindy in Philadelphia, PA
Today's lesson centered around learning how to express daily routines; in the present tense and in the "passe compose". I gave the student a reference sheet with different things associated with a daily routine, then he used that to describe his own. We worked on an additional daily routine activity in the passe compose in which he had to match present tense verbs to their past tense counterparts. Then, based on a scenario written in English describing things that happened earlier that morning, he translated it in French, using the verbs he had matched earlier. As additional practice I gave him a worksheet and had him re-organize his daily routine sequence.
