If you or your student are working towards learning French, think about contacting Varsity Tutors to work with a Pittsburgh French tutor. There are many reasons why someone may want to learn French. French is a historic language, and learning French can help you understand French literature and texts. Additionally, learning French can help you communicate with French speakers across the globe. Having an understanding of French can even help students apply to study abroad programs, or help individuals grow their potential in the international job market. No matter your or your student's reasoning is for learning French, Pittsburgh French tutoring can help.

How can a Pittsburgh French tutor near me help me or my student learn?

Learning French isn't easy, especially if you are going it alone. If you are attempting to learn French on your own, think about Pittsburgh French tutors. When learning a language on your own, it is possible that you are teaching yourself incorrect spelling, grammar, or pronunciation. When pairing up with a professional instructor, you can be sure you are learning French correctly.

Every language has elements that may be confusing for students to learn. For example, French is a gendered language. Unlike English, French nouns are either masculine or feminine. This can be difficult for English-speaking students to learn, especially on their own. Rather than struggling with this understanding and memorization alone, pair up with a private instructor. Doing so can help you focus on gendered nouns at a pace that works best for you. Your private instructor can design lesson plans that focus on the topics of French that are most confusing to you. You can dive in depth and spend as much time as you need to learn these topics when you are paired up with a Pittsburgh French tutor.

A classroom setting is not an appropriate learning environment for everyone, especially when learning a new language. Some individuals struggle to learn French in a classroom environment because their teacher moves at a pace that doesn't work for the student. Another reason students may fall behind in a classroom learning environment is that they are unable to receive one-on-one attention from their teacher. This is not the case with Pittsburgh French tutoring. When working with a private educator, you or your student can move at a pace that is most comfortable. Additionally, a private teacher can pick up on your learning style. Maybe you are a visual learner. If this is the case, your private educator can design a lesson plan that uses flashcards and pictures. On the other hand, your student may be an audible learner. Their instructor can help with this as well. A private educator can design study sessions with recordings and verbal lessons to help them learn in a way that works best for them. Unlike a classroom setting, students can receive French lessons designed with their specific needs in mind. This custom-tailored approach to learning can help individuals tackle their French-related goals.

Can a Pittsburgh French tutor near me accommodate my busy schedule?

Varsity Tutors knows that students looking to learn French are busy. It is possible that you are a working professional with a full-time job who wants to learn French in their spare time. It is also possible that you are the parent of a full-time student who is balancing their coursework and their extracurricular activities. You don't have to let your or your student's busy schedule get in the way of working with Pittsburgh French tutors. Instead, get in touch with our friendly and professional staff and we can help you find a private teacher who is available on your watch.

Students can work with their Pittsburgh French tutor online or in person. For those seeking online instruction, we provide a state-of-the-art Live Learning Platform that helps educators and learners connect face-to-face over the internet. The platform utilizes video chat so you can hear, see, and speak to your instructor easily. Not only does the Live Learning Platform provide you with face-to-face communication, but it also offers learners a virtual whiteboard, a shared document editor, and even practice problems. You can use these tools to work with your tutor one-on-one in a way that is most effective and efficient for your learning style.

Online private tutoring sessions can save you from spending time making a daily commute. Additionally, this offers flexibility on the go. Maybe your student doesn't have time to drive or take the bus to a lesson location. If this is the case, they can learn from any location with internet access. All that is needed is either a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, and an internet connection. Because of this flexibility, your or your student can learn from the comfort of your own home, from Hillman Library, from the campus of the University of Pittsburgh, or even from your favorite coffee shop. You can select a location that is most convenient, comfortable, familiar, and distraction-free to get the most out of your lessons.

Another option available is the virtual classroom. You can sign up for an online French class to work with a professional instructor and your peers. If you are interested in this type of focused learning in addition to Pittsburgh French tutors, contact Varsity Tutors right away.

French Tutoring review by Chantal in Pittsburgh, PA
The student is in the process of reviewing for her French exam. We looked at all the chapters she has worked through this year and began studying. These first two sessions will be to go through them as an overview, and the last session will be more in depth. She did very well.

French Tutoring review by Carolyn in Pittsburgh, PA
Today we went over more basics to review his French. We went over main verbs again, and then we discussed the use of avoir or etre with passe compose. We reviewed thoroughly all the verbs that take etre in the passe compose. Then we reviewed adjectives, possessive pronouns, and reflexive verbs. I checked the student's short paragraph that he wrote about his daily life, and I gave him another writing assignment today along with note cards to study and a link to an expanded set of 72 French adjectives. I advised him to go through the set and review the pronunciation and spellings.

French Tutoring review by Liz in Pittsburgh, PA
We reviewed the last few exercises from the workbook on Lesson 1C and then she took a quiz on all of lesson 1. She did very well! We then moved on to Lesson 2A, reviewed all of the material and did the listening exercises in the workbook. She will be out of town for a couple of weeks, so I assigned her the writing exercises for Lesson 2A in the workbook and asked her to review Lessons 2B and 2C in the textbook before next time. She will also read the rest of Lesson 2 and do the related cultural exercises in the workbook on pages 25-28.

French Tutoring review by Aneta in Pittsburgh, PA
During this session, we first read and corrected the student's homework. I taught her French pronunciation rules and gave her examples of how to correctly pronounce vowels, consonants and words. In the third part of the session, we read French poems and songs to exercise correct pronunciation. I left her with homework which involved reading and vocabulary exercises.

French Tutoring review by Anna in Pittsburgh, PA
We continued with our summer review of what he has learned over the past two years. I think it's important for him to be able to put what he knows into context, so we found another extract of French writing to translate. As part of the translation exercise we identified in the abstract which tenses were used and thought about why. We also analyzed placement of pronouns, and discussed sentence structure analysis as a way to know the meaning of homophones and what part of speech they are playing in a particular sentence. We also just did some conjugation drills. He's really doing well on the drills.
