Quality French lessons from a professional tutor with a lot of experience
I have an approach where the goal is to pass the test/ exam or another goal. We always look at what the student needs first, that way I know the best way to help. This way we make the best use of the time. We first discuss what the problem might be. Is the subject matter unclear, are you missing the basic knowledge needed to continue learning, do you not have enough exercises or do you not know how to go about it all? Depending on that, I determine the strategy needed to achieve results in the long run. I am someone who is patient and understanding. The most important thing for me is that the student feels comfortable, only then we can make progress together. This way I take away the fear of making mistakes, and the student achieves a better command of the language. Are you afraid that online tutoring is difficult for concentration? No worries, my job is to keep the student attentive and keep the tutoring fun and challenging at the same time. ps: are you from another country? During July and August I also teach French and other languages overseas. Contact me for more information.

Korean Intermediate Conversation Class to Improve Speaking Level
After finishing the basic Korean conversation, you might want to study more to travel to South Korea or meet native Korean speakers. This course is designed for students who can read Korean and can speak basic Korean expressions. Besides, it is for those who want to learn more practical and advanced expressions they can use with native speakers. Before taking this course, students will take a level test to see if they are suitable for this course. They will learn how to make sentences, advanced expressions, and idioms, etc. We will be doing many role-plays and activities using textbooks or the materials I prepare. Students will have a test after finishing every chapter and will be given homework every lesson. We will study the practical expressions that Korean people use in daily life. Start to make Korean friends and practice speaking the expressions you learned in this class! If you're interested. I look forward to hearing from you. :)
