High school degree from the Ecole Bilingue Jeanine Manuel in Paris. The school was recently rarted top school in the country and focused on making all the students fully bilingual with half our classes taught in English and the other in French. I graduated with a French Baccalaureate with International Option credits. I also studied Italian for 7 years and speak it fluently. I went on to get a Bachelor in Politics with an Italian minor from New York University.
I tutored in NYC for 6 years, working mainly with children, some of which were students at the Lycee Francais. My main focus was helping them with comprehension and pushing them to feel comfortable expressing themselves in French. I also helped with homework and academics in general. My approach is usually to speak only French around my clients, it forces them to try and makes identifying difficulties much easier. I also think that it is more important to be able to express oneself and be understood than have a perfect accent. That being said I also helped adults with perfecting their accent and finding how to say words to sound more natural. Having grown up around both languages I am quick at finding how to help with making the right sounds. Latin languages just have different mechanics and French has weird sounds for most English speakers but with a bit of work it's easy to figure out.
If a student would like to set up regular meetings and the travel is not far, I can renegotiate my rates.
Pascal is an excellent tutor- he grew up in France with a French father and an American mother, so he speaks perfect French and English. He also happens to be fluent in Italian! He has years of experience working with people of all age ranges and backgrounds- having been tutored by him in French for over 7 years, I am so thankful to have worked with such a good natured, patient, and caring teacher. Every class is fun and I’m always surprised at the end of a session to realize that what felt like an easy going conversation was in fact an incredibly informative and educational hour of tutoring. Thank you Pascal!!!
I've known Pascal for 9 years now and he's been teaching throughout. He's an awesome tutor that really considers each of his students individually and adjusts according to their needs. He's endlessly patient and truly kind. He's had a string of very VIP clients because his skill set and interpersonal skills are so strong. He's 100% reliable, the most reliable person I know :)
