Raleigh-Durham French Tutoring FAQ

If you're hoping to find assistance for you or your student when it comes to French comprehension or speaking skills, Varsity Tutors can connect you with a Raleigh-Durham French tutor. Perhaps your child is getting started with French at a local high school. Maybe you yourself are enrolled in a French class at a school such as North Carolina State University or Duke University. You might be aiming for a job at a company that does extensive business in Montreal or planning a vacation to Paris. Whatever your reasoning for wanting to improve your understanding of French, it can be helpful to seek out private instruction.

What are the benefits of securing the help of a Raleigh-Durham French tutor near me?

There are a number of advantages to working with a Raleigh-Durham French tutor, including benefiting from their expertise. Romance languages can be perplexing to those unfamiliar with their nuances. For instance, French nouns come with gendered articles, either "un" or "une" for "a" or "le" or "la" for "the". There are general rules related to the suffix of the noun that dictate whether it is considered masculine or feminine, but as is often the case with rules, they come with exceptions and require extensive study. Similarly, conjugation of verbs can be confusing. There are a number of tenses with their own rules, including present, passé composé, futur composé, imparfait, plus-que-parfait, and passé récent. For the most part, -er, -ir, and -re verbs follow predictable patterns in each of these categories, but that's still a lot of memorization. Once you get to irregular verbs, though, the real fun begins. And we haven't even begun to discuss adjectives, adverbs, or turns of phrase.

Does that sound overwhelming? This is where working with Raleigh-Durham French tutors can be useful. These are professionals who know the language like the back of their hand. They work with you to explain the grammatical rules governing the language, how they interact, and where there are exceptions. They can order these lessons in such a way that they build upon each other, minimizing confusion. Should the presentation of the information fail to provide clarity, they can try to present it in a different way until you do understand. They can answer your questions in real-time to make sure you get to full comprehension. This sort of one-on-one attention can be hard to come by in a conventional classroom.

Another benefit of Raleigh-Durham French tutoring is the verbal training you can receive. As any language student can tell you, it's hard to say you've learned a language if you can't carry a conversation in it. It's one thing to be able to string together a sentence on paper. It's another thing entirely to be able to understand it when it's spoken aloud and respond in kind. As is often the case in English and any other language, conversational French comes with its own quirks, including colloquialisms, slang, and regional dialects. It looks a lot different than what you might see in a textbook and is delivered at a much quicker pace than what a teacher might offer at the front of a classroom or asks for as they try to teach pronunciation of one word at a time. Raleigh-Durham French tutors can help with this. Your online tutor can use video chat on the Live Learning Platform to carry on conversations with you, helping you acclimate to the speed of dialogue and correcting you in real-time to prevent bad habits from setting in. Because you can record these sessions, you can go back to the sessions to revisit the lessons. This sort of instruction can be invaluable in helping a high school student prepare for oral exams or for higher-level courses where instruction takes place primarily in French. It can also help business people prepare for big presentations or world travelers get ready for interactions with locals in French-speaking countries.

A big advantage of Raleigh-Durham French tutoring is that the lesson plans can be tailored to your learning preferences. Research has shown that most people have a preferred instruction style. When those preferences are met, the student is more likely to stay engaged, ultimately absorbing more of the information. Raleigh-Durham French tutors can take the time to get to know their students and their preferences, building the lesson plans to cater to their needs. For example, some people are active learners. They like to take what they've learned and apply it. They prefer to process information by talking about it and seeing it in action. Other people are reflective learners. They like to think about things and understand how it works before moving on to application. In the context of private language instruction and adaptation, the active learner might be taught about -er verb conjugation and asked to conjugate a list of twenty -er verbs, directly applying the lesson. The reflective learner might be taught how to conjugate -er, -ir, and -re verbs, given one of each of those verbs to conjugate, and asked to explain the differences in conjugation processes. The customization of instruction approaches can help make Raleigh-Durham French tutoring more effective.

Recent Raleigh-Durham French Tutoring Session Notes

French Tutoring review by Eve in Raleigh-Durham, NC
We reviewed the verbs: etre, avoir, aller and the regular er-ending verbs. Then we covered a new page covering "Ou allons-nous?" Where are we going? This had vocabulary about a the center of a town. Then we reviewed the vocabulary of the earlier pages. She is retaining the words nicely and is able to create new sentences on her own. Her pronunciation is also improving. We agreed that she'd get in touch with me on Monday to schedule lessons for next week.

French Tutoring review by Roshan in Raleigh-Durham, NC
My first session with this student went great. We practiced basic phrases and she learned how to introduce herself, say where she lives, what her favorite hobby is and her favorite animal. We then did some role-play dialogue in French.

French Tutoring review by Molly in Raleigh-Durham, NC
During this class, we reviewed several topics such as colors and numbers and the alphabet in French. We then reviewed the days of the week and the song used to remember them. The girls did a great job remembering everything they've learned before. Since they learned the days of the week, they then learned how to say "today," "tomorrow," and "yesterday" in French. Following that activity, we reviewed the months of the year and practiced the winter months. Lastly, since last week was Thanksgiving, they were taught different food items, how to pronounce them and how to order in a French cafe.
