Improving Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking in GCSE French and Spanish

I specialise in French and Spanish for GCSE students. My goal is to help students who are struggling with any part of either French or Spanish (listening, speaking, writing or reading) at this level.
My lesson structure is one where I and the student will go over the topic they find difficult and then do some exercises on the topic to enhance their understanding. Both parts will be done in the same lesson.
I intend to do as much as possible in one lesson without overwhelming the student (for example, we may do a brief listening exercise together then spend the rest of the class dealing with a grammatical feature that the student finds hard).
I am 22 years old so I did my GCSE exams not too long ago. This recent experience helps me to understand the difficulties of French/Spanish GCSE students very well.

About Me

I am a fair but strict teacher. I expect my students to have a willingness to learn and to be focused at all times. I have tutored once before at a GCSE level for French and my student made it very clear that he enjoyed my lessons.
At the beginning of the first lesson I will ask the student about his/her interests in order to incorporate some of those interests into the exercises that we do together (for example, my previous student was a Liverpool fan so I created several exercises that were football-related to improve his French). My main priority is to make sure that the student feels more confident with their French/Spanish at the end of the lesson whilst improving his skills in a fun, engaging way during the lesson.

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Classes are built around oral communication to enhance the interactivity of learners. I adapt my classes, be they of support or improvement or other, to the needs of the students, thus to reach their objectives in terms of comprehension of oral / oral production, and comprehension and written production. I have several years of experience in teaching, and a training in pedagogy, as well as a master's degree in translation and interpretation and in French literature (Lettres Modernes).
