Online Tutoring for French Students Abroad

En Français: Сours en-ligne pour élèves français habitant à l'étranger

For several years, Virtual Classrooms has provided online tutoring services to K-12 and college students in the U.S. using tutors in Russia. Most of instructors and students who have participated in our program have greatly appreciated it and found it helpful. Now, Virtual Classrooms is offering a new program, which we call "Online tutoring for French Children Abroad"

Program Summary:

Many French children live with their parents abroad either temporarily or permanently. Moving from France to other countries with other languages might cause some difficulties for the students of these parents. The purpose of this program is to provide an on-line tutoring service to French children who live abroad and who need help on math and science in either French or English. We are willing to follow the French curriculum and coordinate tutoring with the student's program at a French school or to provide online tutoring following the program of a school where student studies at present time. We are offering both individual and group tutoring (to groups of 2-4 students).

Who our tutors are:

Most are Russian students or graduates of Novosibirsk State University in Russia, from high schools specialized in French language training. They have a strong math/science background, tutoring experience and good English and French skills. Some of them have successfully passed the DALF (diplome approfondi de langue francaise) exam approved by the Education Department of France.

How it works:

We use special Internet meeting software which allows to students and tutors to work together online by typing text messages, drawing graphs, diagrams and formulae on a whiteboard using the mouse and speaking using a microphone or a headset. This software allows the students and tutor to communicate easily and efficiently in groups of 1-4 students. Usually the tutor and the student(s) get on-line at the appointed time and have a 2 hour tutoring session. During the session the tutor and the student(s) discuss math/science concepts, work together on course material and learn to solve problems that the student needs help with.

What the advantages are:

  1. Student can work from his/her own home;
  2. Flexible schedule: student can choose the time that would be convenient for him/her;
  3. Individual approach (individual tutoring or small group tutoring);
  4. Student gets help from knowledgeable tutors skilled in the subject mater;
  5. Student can get help on required subject either in English or French;
  6. Student Learns Internet and computer skills;
  7. Having fun.
