Bonjour à tous ! My name is Alison, I am a French native speaker and I live Downtown

Methodology

Tout d'abord, j'evalue le niveau de l'élève en discutant avec lui et en lui faisant repondre à quelques tests.

Une fois le niveau défini et les lacunes identifiées, nous travaillons dessus.

Pour donner vie au cours, je fais egalement appel à des jeux, des musiques françaises, des séquences de films, des courtes publicités...

J'aime particulièrement utiliser des jeux de rôles, ce qui aide l'élève à travailler l'improvisation en utilisant son imagination.

Le vocabulaire s'enrichit donc au fur et à mesure des séances. La conjugaison, l'entraînement à la lecture, l'orthographe (...) sont egalement renforcés.

Habituellement je parle uniquement en français pendant les cours, mais je m'adapte bien évidemment à mon/mes élève(s).

Voici mes disponibilités restantes (si aucune de ces disponibilités ne vous convient, merci de NE PAS FORMULER DE DEMANDE) :

- Lundi soir à 7.15 pm
- Vendredi soir à 7.15 pm
- Samedi après midi après 3.30 pm
- Dimanche après midi après 3 pm

La PREMIÈRE RENCONTRE s'effectuera dans un lieu public (NON chez l'étudiant et NON à mon domicile)

Background

Je travaille actuellement dans une école française à Toronto. J'ai fait du bénévolat à Guangzhou, en Chine, où j'enseignais le français et je dirigeais une classe d'une dizaine d'élèves agés entre 10 et 12 ans.

Je donne egalement des cours de français individuels adaptés à tous, petits et grands.

Perfect! Alison is both enthusiastic and professional incorporating a proficient approach to learning. The lessons are fun and challenging; with an expectation to complete homework week to week to enable full potential of her students to be reached. I would recommend anyone seeking to learn French to reach out to Alison, you will not be disappointed.

Craig

Perfect! I have really enjoyed the lessons I have taken with Alison so far. We only meet for an hour, but we are able to cover a great deal of content, in part because she is well prepared. She let's me speak and gently corrects when I make a mistake, and her lessons are varied, practising reading, listening, writing and oral. Highly recommended!

James

Perfect! Allison is fantastic! She brings exciting materials, creativity, and passion to each lesson. I always enjoy my lessons with this outgoing and kind instructor. My French ability has improved markedly since I began learning from her. I wholeheartedly recommend Allison to any prospective learners who read this. Her approach is communicative, humorous, and engaging. You will laugh while you learn.

Alison's response

Parfait!
James est quelqu'un de sérieux, fiable et toujours ponctuel. C'est un réel plaisir de travailler avec lui. Cela fait plusieurs mois que nous travaillons ensemble et chaque leçon est un régal ! Merci James !

Perfect! Alison is a great tutor. Her lessons are always unique and diverse. She teaches a good mix of grammar, listening and speaking skills. She is very patient and encouraging. She allows you to learn at the pace that you are comfortable with, while encouraging you to dive right in and step out of your comfort zone a bit. I've been taking lessons with her for almost six month and feel very satisfied with my progress. I would highly recommend her.

Saeed

Perfect! I had the pleasure of taking french lessons from Alison for quite some months now. She helped me to polish my basic (almost forgotten) rusty french to the next level!
She is very friendly, punctual and uses different methods to make the session as lively as possible and even further engages the student based on their interests.

Je connais Alison depuis des années, nous venons de la même ville en France. C'est une personne entière et sérieuse. Elle enseigne de façon méthodique et elle garde toujours une attitude professionnelle. Elle est ponctuelle lorsqu'elle donne une heure et les enfants l'adorent car elle a beaucoup d'imagination pour leur inventer des histoires. En résumé, je dirais que je la recommande les yeux fermés !

I am very happy to have chosen Alison. After a month, I have already seen an evolution. My understanding had improved and I spoke French more easily. She also taught me a lot of very French expressions to speak like a true French!

We really enjoyed these few months with Alison before we left for France. Alison was punctual and she prepared each lesson carefully. She explains clearly and simply. My children were very sad to leave her

Alison is calm and very patient. She is also very pedagogue

Alison's interview

QUESTION 01 | 04
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Alison — It was in April this year, and at first I didn't really believe in this but I wanted to try, and after I really enjoyed to help people to understand and talk french
QUESTION 02 | 04
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Alison — French language is really rich but also very difficult that is why I feel useful to help people to learn this language
QUESTION 03 | 04
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Alison — I love be independent and work for myself.
I can use my imagination for giving life to the classes because if the classes are boring the students will run away, that's important to always try to think "what the student think about my class and about my way to teach, what can I improve .."
QUESTION 04 | 04
What are your keys to success?
Alison — Stay humble. Accept advice from anyone. Some students sometimes, because they are real teachers in their life, want to give you advice and change your way to teach, that's why we have to be very flexible and change immediately our way to teach to fit perfectly with what the student expect, because after all, he is the one who pay.
Also, the key is to prepare each lesson with creativity and passion.
