Native speaker makes French easy to practice for all levels from A1.1 up to C1

Methodology

Hi,
Nice to e-meet you. Bonjour! Ravie de te e-rencontrer! My name is Laura, I am a French native speaker who has been living in Sydney for 5 years now. Mon nom est Laura et je vis a Sydney depuis 5 ans maintenant. I am also an FLE (French as a Foreign Language) tutor. I teach to all levels A1 to C1, all ages from 5 years old kids up to retirees. My sessions content and methodology vary depending on the students' levels, their ages and interests.

However, en règle générale or usually, I like alternating:
one practical session with video/audio/text/games focusing on listening, understanding and speaking skills
One technical session focused on grammar and conjugation rules and exercises.

I like explaining grammar and conjugation rules.

For instance, do you know when to use the imperfect tense?
The imperfect is used for three main things.
to describe something in the past, for example, « Il y avait beaucoup de monde au magasin ce weekend. » There were lots of people in the shop this weekend.
to speak of habits in the past. For example: « Il allait toujours fair ses courses dans le même magasin. » He used to always go shopping at the same store.
to speak of a secondary action in the past. For example: il dormait quand soudain son téléphone s’est mis à sonner. So the main action here is: the phone started ringing, ‘S'est mis à sonner’ - perfect tense or passé composé, however, the secondary action that gives some context about the situation is : he was sleeping, "il dormait" - imperfect or imparfait.

I give homework (if you agree) and I translate articles with/or for some of my advanced students. Je donne des devoirs à la maison et je traduis des articles avec ou pour mes étudiants. I have Masters degrees in Marketing and Human Resources and I am preparing a DAEFLE certification to perfect my methodology and work as a French tutor/teacher full time!! (I started tutoring occasionally in 2018). I speak and write English and French only. I can also teach technical French in my fields. Once you'll book, I will be able to send you one or two tests to approximately assess your level and prepare the first intro lesson. Do not hesitate to guide me as it is your personal journey, let me know what you want to improve. N'hésitez pas à partager votre feedback et vos besoins à la fin de chaques séance, puisqu’il s’agit avant tout de votre parcours.

Cheers Laura
