I am a qualified and experienced French Teacher (B.A. Joint Honours in French and English from Leeds University, plus a Post Graduate Certificate in Education for teaching French at high School Level for the same university). I have taught High School French from Beginners to Exam level. I have taught French 1 for 2 years for an online school via Outschool. 
I have lived and worked in France during my studies and now spend part of each year at our little house in the Charente, France.
Homework Offered
Homework tasks/Assignments will be set each week. Students will also complete Projects on topics of their own choice. The homework, including work on Projects, will take about 60-75 minutes each week.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I will give verbal feedback in class and brief written feedback after each class. I will give an informal competence-based assessment at the end of each Cycle.
Grades Offered
Worksheets will be provided for most classes. Students will require a pen and paper or device to make their own notes.
A French-English dictionary will also be helpful.
The Free version of the Duolingo app will be sufficient for this Cycle. 
A drink of water available on hand will be useful, as the students are encouraged to speak frequently in class and some of the sounds in the French language are a workout for the vocal cords.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
