The first and most important point is to give the tutee the strongest possible interest in French and work to keep it as high as possible throughout the learning process. This means that the lessons have to be interesting and enjoyable and also absolutely fitted with the tutee`s skills.
For complete beginner I use the most basic vocabulary and repeat until complete appropriation. I try to avoid English as much as possible. When the tutee has enough knowledge to interact with me in French, I use this confidence and this proximity to progressively broaden the vocabulary and the subjects. Lessons are made of conversations and readings. Each new knowledge is explained and used until its complete assimilation.
It is not an academic course. The way I teach will provide a durable and efficient base for every future learning in French.
