I teach by beginning the lesson with a light conversation in the language being studied, to ensure the student is gradually transitioning to a French/English mood. Then I'd typically give them a prepared passage to read, and from that, identify new grammar and vocabulary to learn in order to better understand the given text. Finally, I explain to the student how the knowledge could be applied on a regular conversational basis, then assign a writing task for homework!
I am a recent International Baccalaureate graduate who has obtained a 6 in French (equivalent to an A in Cambridge A Levels). I have my DELF qualifications (each with perfect or near perfect marks in the oral examinations) and am trained up to level B2, signifying that I am a near fluent French speaker. I started giving private lessons in Year 13, however I have gained experience prior to this as an assistant tutor at Kumon. I have previously taught English and with my assistance, my students have improved their Progressive Achievement Test (PAT) grades drastically in a matter of months.
