You're a non-native French speaker. Why should I work with you as a tutor?
It's true. A skilled, native speaker is the best teacher. I can provide you with empathy for the frustration that comes from studying this language. I began when I was seven years old but wasn't comfortable communicating until I was 21. Even after more than a decade living in French, I make mistakes every day. But my pronunciation is strong enough that native speakers compliment me on it. And I can help students by comparing English and French and making the vocabulary and pronunciation connections that accelerate progress toward fluency.
Why is it so difficult to get my message across? Academically or professionally?
Transferring our ideas to the page is a challenge for everyone. Particularly in any stressful situation. We lose our sense of register, and if we're tired, we may lose the sense of what must be said. After a few drafts, it's difficult to be sure if what we have in mind is actually on the page. That's why it helps to have another set of eyes take a look and make sure that the message you want to share is the one you've written.
Why is English such a difficult language to master?
Many students struggle with a desire to communicate in English as well as they do in their native language. While this is a laudable goal, it is very difficult to reach. While still grounded in its Germanic roots, the language has been influenced by Latin and French, has removed its accents, and developed strong regional differences as the result of colonization. In spite of, or perhaps due to, the history of this language, the threshold for communication among non-native speakers is relatively low. Communication should be the primary goal.
