I've also been certified as an examiner for French language tests (DELF and DALF) in December 2015.
Here is what I view as the best recipe for a successful learning experience: mix a strong motivation with an efficient methodology, and add a good relationship between the student and the teacher.
1) Motivation: there are many motivations that push people to learn French, and understanding the goal(s) of each person is essential to me, as it represents the starting point of our collaboration.
2) Efficient methodology: I believe that each student has a strong potential and my role as a teacher is to find the best methodology for each individual, in order to develop this potential. For this reason, I don't give standard classes, but I rather adapt the content to each situation and person.
3) A good relationship: my attitude as a teacher reflects my own temper as a person - I believe in the power of encouragements, in the magic of positivism, in the necessity of resilience. I feel very involved in the learning of my students, which is why I prefer to work with motivated students.
So, are you ready to start learning ? :)
