This is how 2 referees rated Alice:
I am a friendly, open and fair individual, that enjoys helping other people to reach their goals.
Currently 23, I have lived in Geneva, Switzerland, for one year, and undertaken university studies in the French language. As well as using French in day to day life, this has also involved writing university grade essays in the language and engaging in complex spoken discourse, articulating ideas and arguments. I consider myself fluent in this language.
I am passionate about the French language and feel there is much to be gained in learning to speak this widely used and rich language.
I have previously successfully tutored French to younger students, as well as having worked in a caring and learning capacity with disabled young adults.
I take a structured and clear approach that involves objectives for each lesson, catering to the age and individual learning needs of each student.
I incorporate all four essential language skills into my lessons: writing, reading, listening and speaking. Often there may be a particular skill that a student struggles with that may need more attention and I will prepare lessons accordingly.
Grammar and vocabulary must be developed, through exercises and tests, as these are the building blocks for independent expression, free from excessive use of pre-learned sentences without understanding the component parts of those sentences. As such learning the language is both logical and creative at the same time.
I feel I have a strong understanding of the problems that learning a language can open up for individuals, as I have encountered them myself in the past and am always open to new solutions to resolving these.
I expect the best from my students and am willing to put in hard work to help them to achieve their goals, but of course expect hard work and dedication in return.
Learning a language is both useful and fun!
