Study Sessions with Sally : college student offering affordable French, Irish and Biology grinds to second level students.
About the lesson
I am a second year Bsc college student in UCD. I have always been passionate about learning languages, I studied French for six years in secondary school and I have always really enjoyed it and thrived at it. However, I believe that there should be more of a focus placed on oral learning, in secondary school. After all, the end of goal of learning a language is being able to speak it!
In my lessons, I aim to place particular emphasis on oral pronunciation and fluency. I will give instructions and ask questions in french during the lesson, to give students an ear for the language, and I encourage them to do their best to respond in french also. This will improve their aural and oral abilities and even their ability to recognise certain verbs or phrases (useful for comprehensions).
The structure of my lessons are as follows:
We will start with some informal oral conversation, (I will make note of any new words here and throughout the session compiling a list of vocabulary to give to the student at the end) I will ask the student if there is anything they are struggling with or would like to brush up on.
We will then move on to the main topic e.g the imperfect tense, I explain the rules and then we will look at applications of it and try a few excercises, involving applying the new verb tense in sentence structure.
Then I will run through any other sub topics the student is having difficulty with or any questions they might have. Finally I will summarise the lesson and give them the vocabulary list and a few short excercises to do for homework (don't worry I don't give much homework as I understand the students already have enough to do!).
I like to keep my lessons varied by incorporating a mixture of learning methods; reading and comprehension, listening to aural tapes, written and oral expression.

I am a second year Bsc college student in UCD. I have always been passionate about learning languages, I studied French for six years in secondary school and I have a strong linguistic ability. In my lessons I focus on oral proficiency through spoken french and regular revision of grammar and verbs.
I also offer lessons in biology and Irish, each of which I have a great interest and proficiency in also. I achieved H1 grades in each of these three subjects at leaving cert level.
I am a patient and encouraging teacher and will do my very best to explain things in a way that the student understands. "If a child can't learn the way we teach them maybe we should teach them the way they learn" Ignacio Estrada.
