Private French Tutor from StudyPoint
Dear Parent -
I had my academic ups and downs, but no subject gave me more trouble than French. It was a constant low point on my report cards, and my persistent struggles in class took a toll on my confidence.
The challenge of learning a foreign language is two-fold. First, having spent all of our lives trying to master English, it can feel like a highly unnatural process to throw away all those grammatical rules and vocabulary words. Second, when a student begins to struggle in French, the problem is often compounded when classes are taught primarily in the language itself. My teachers were adamant that we speak in French, which led to a reluctance to raise my hand for fear of embarrassing myself in front of friends and classmates.
As in my case, these factors can snowball, making it extremely difficult to catch up. Yet for all the challenges of learning a foreign language, private tutoring is a remarkably simple solution. A private French tutor can give your child a safe environment in which to ask those embarrassing questions, and a tutor can also move through content at a pace that is appropriate to your child.
Most of our students work with their French tutors once a week for 90-minutes. Lessons focus on your child's specific class work, and the goal is to strengthen his or her understanding of the structures, diction, and vocabulary that are the foundation of the French language. In addition, your child's French tutor will assist with preparation and drilling for important quizzes and exams.
Fortunately, the positive effects of tutoring can also snowball. As your child becomes more confident with grammar and pronunciation, he or she will become more involved in class. As that happens, the need for French tutoring begins to fade.
Learning a new language can be one of the most fun and rewarding educational opportunities, but it doesn't always come naturally.
