...Experience does matter, as well as knowledge and reflection on your own language. I am constantly making research on my language, whether it is in phonetics, accent reduction techniques, etymology, grammar mysteries, linguistics, fun facts, its intertwined history with English, etc. French can be challenging at times.

...I gauge where the student is at in knowing the concepts by having him/her work out the problems. Every problem has two parts: the first is recognizing what kind of problem it is (e.g. quadratic equation) and the second is the mechanics of working it out (e.g. arithmetic skills, factoring, quadratic formula). I have been tutoring since I was in high school myself. I keep it simple and fun!
