Frequently Asked Questions
With our french classes, Step Up Academy hires experienced tutors who have fluency in french. With these enthusiastic french teachers, we implement our program by Intentionally blocking off time to practice listening and speaking skills. Our online french tutoring model and in person french tutoring model will have at least 20 minutes of french oral communication time with the teacher and the student. This will ensure each student will be more and more confident with their listening and speaking skills in our classroom, and outside the classroom at school.
Our french program focuses on the four strands: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Teachers will be asking each student about the content they are learning in school. This way, students will be improving on their skills that they are learning in school and preparing for upcoming quizzes or tests. Students will do better in school because of our intentional work that is being given, that relates to their schoolwork.
Students receive homework each session. This allows students to practice their skills that they have learned in the classroom, while they are at home. Teachers collect and mark the homework at the beginning of every session.
In our french classes, teachers mark student work. There will be communication through the online portal whether or not students have completed the work. Furthermore, there will be anecdotal notes about their work on the online portal as well. This will tell parents what they must improve on and some great things that the teacher has seen in their work during that session.
No, students do not get the same work. In our french tutoring classes, we are very intentional with giving out work that is relevant to the child’s school work. Some students may have similar work because they are learning the same thing as another student. However, most times, each student has separate work that relates to their school work.
Our experienced french teachers help with the school work and homework. Students can bring in their work and teachers can give them strategies on how to complete the work. If students do not have any school work or homework, teachers will build upon the skills they are learning at school by providing them with work that relates to that topic. This will ensure that the student is improving their skills taught in school.
Monthly, there is an assessment for the students. Teachers will mark the work and update the online portal so the parents can see their results. This is to ensure the student’s progress and growth during their time at Step Up Academy.
