« Madame Radtke is an amazing French teacher. I had the opportunity to travel to France with her and take her class for 4 years. What I love about her is how excited she gets about the French culture, history, music (oh the music!), and life in general. She spent many years in France and learning from her was always enjoyable. It was easily one of my favorite classes... learning a new language and having an amazing teacher. She will work with you one on one, as a group, as five different groups, it didn’t matter. She wanted you to love the class and the language as much as she did. She knows how to connect with students as well, which is extremely important. I would recommend Madame Laura Radtke to anyone looking to learn French, they would be extremely lucky to have her. »

"Retired" French teacher who has lived, studied and traveled throughout France and loves all things French! Now enjoying a "snowbird" lifestyle but hopeful to continue sharing my passion.

Methodology

I am an enthusiastic, caring, and patient teacher who uses a variety of teaching methods based on each learner's style. I believe in differentiated education, giving options to students and allowing them input even as standards and benchmarks are made clear. Students gain confidence through fun, varied listening, speaking, reading and writing activities in an atmosphere of nurturing that is not negatively critical. I like knowing student's interests to tailor lessons to these so they feel invested and motivated.

Background

I taught world languages to grades K-8: Spanish, Italian, and emphasis on French. For grades 9-12, I taught French levels I-IV, ITV and virtual classes, as well as world literature while also coaching volleyball and basketball, advising Student Council, and fundraising for French Club so students and their parents in our small community could go on trips to France and cultural events with French themes. I lived in Avignon for my sophomore year and traveled extensively by train through all of western Europe. I lived in Lorient, where I was an intern at a music organization while completing my masters program. I cherish opportunities to speak French, help others learn French, and stay fluent even as I enjoy an early retirement to enjoy Florida with my husband in the winter months.

Laura was my French teacher for 3 1/2 years and was by far the best foreign language teachers I know. Not only did she teach the language but taught about the culture as well. She made the classes fun and interactive.

I took French classes in high school for 4 years with her. She used so many different resources: memorization, music, reading, writing, etc to help us learn new words and actually understand what we were saying. Class was a blast, and she knows so much! If you have the opportunity, choose to learn from her! You will not regret it!

Laura was my high school French teacher. She was always so excited about our French lessons which made learning fun and easy. I was lucky to travel with her and my classmates to France in 2005. It was an amazing experience to have with such a knowledgeable teacher who is so passionate about teaching the language and culture.

To whom this may concern.
My name is Margaret and I am the mother of two of Mrs. Radtkes former students. To say I would recommend her for tutoring anyone would be an understatement. Her enthusiasm for the French language and the culture is bar none. Both of my kids still talk about Mrs. Radtke and her wonderful zest for life and teaching! They have been out of school for 3 and 4 years. She is the best, the most thoughtful, caring teacher my kids ever had. We just love her!

Laura is an amazing teacher and a beautiful human being. I’ve known Laura for years. I had the privilege of traveling to Paris as a chaperone for my daughter’s French class with Laura. Laura made this such a special trip. I highly recommend Laura for your French lessons!!

Laura was my high school French class teacher! She was absolutely wonderful. She was by far my favorite teacher and everyone always had so much fun in her class, as well as learned a lot! She listens to her students and when someone didn't understand she wouldn't hesitate to help you out in any way she could to better help you learn. I would recommend her any day.

It's been 15 years since I was in high school French class but I still remember so much of what I was taught thanks entirely to Madame Laura! She made learning sooo much fun and it was always enjoyable! She has a true passion for the French language and culture and for teaching. One of the most caring and invested teachers I have ever had! Anyone who crosses her path is truly blessed.
