Sarah
Speak English with Confidence!~Canadian ESL Tutoring
The most common reason why learners have tutoring with me is to improve their speaking. Expressing yourself clearly in English can be quite challenging and requires regular practice and correction. I can help! This lesson type will help you improve everyday (colloquial) English. (However, there is some flexibility, so we can cover other topics also.) I do minimal preparation (no more than ten minutes) for each lesson. I specialize in helping learners find their “voice” in English so that they can express their true thoughts and feelings. They will learn about themselves, others, and the world—not just English. I usually use https://esldiscussions.com/ as the content, but you might want to talk about your day, your life, the news, or another topic that interests you. If you are not sure what topics you would like to choose, we can talk about this during our first lesson. There will be homework after every lesson: reviewing each lesson’s notes and bringing questions from school, work, or self-study. Also, you may write down ideas for the next lesson’s topic(s). but this is optional. During your speaking lessons, I will also target other aspects of your spoken English that you would like to improve, such as your listening, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and idiom and phrasal verb use. Please note that if you would like online lessons, I will create your own Google Doc for your lessons and usually use Skype. A Google Doc is cloud-based and will allow you to see the notes I’m typing. As a result, you can look at them during and after each lesson. I can record your lessons on Skype so that you can listen to them later.

Montreal - Computer Music Lessons on Ableton Live
If you are looking to get started with Computer Aided Production, you have come to the right place! A musician who has always been passionate about electronic music and also a guitar teacher, I have a pedagogue spirit and I like being able to pass on my knowledge. I like to provide a relaxed atmosphere and I can adapt to a lot of different kinds of electronic music. This course is aimed at musicians and those interested in learning to compose music entirely by computer, from scratch. I established a lesson plan allowing to start from the minimum and thus to go over all the important stages, from the composition to the arrangement, until the mixing and the publication of the pieces or of a final project. Beginner to advanced level, the training includes: -Ableton Live software basics (Workflows, configuration, interface & shortcuts) -Basics of musical production (Write a melody and a chord progression, structure a song according to the style chosen) -MIDI basics (Use of VSTs, insertion and configuration of external instruments) - Sound Design basics (ADSR basics, use of layering for virtual instruments, sample processing) -Using audio effects (Review of available effects and how to integrate and use them effectively) -Learn to mix a song and / or a complete project and prepare the mastering of the latter (Gain staging, spatialization, frequency sweep and use of compressors, mixing templates and use of a reference track) -Publication of projects (basic mastering, study on the different broadcasting and music streaming services) The goal is to acquire the right basic knowledge in a short time, in order to be able to be autonomous on the creation, the publication and the management of your own projects. I teach the lessons, either: -At my home directly, I have a small studio in my apartment, not far from downtown Montreal; -At your home, the costs are a little higher due to transport; -Remote by webcam with sound and screen sharing I give a first lesson of one hour at the start of the process so that I can take the time to discuss your project and determine the objectives together.

French as a second language courses for beginners, intermediate - students/professionals
After several years teaching French to foreigners, in particular to students and adults in the professional world who have chosen to come and settle in metropolitan France. In addition, my mastery of seven living languages allows me to understand the phonetic constructions of the student in order to allow him to hear how the French syllable system works. Former student of the Preparatory Class for entry to the École Normale Supérieure de Lettres et Sciences Humaines (Lyon LSH), the instruction I received in French language and literature, throughout my school career, was excellent. . Mastering all the principles of grammar and spelling, conjugation and agreements, I have with me the experience of more than ten years of tutoring and teaching French. From Chinese academics to foreigners from Latin America wishing to incorporate into French society, the panel of students with whom I had the opportunity to work allowed me to set up a structured teaching system, easy and effective. I go to the student's home, can go to the library, on campus or to a café, just as it is possible to work remotely via videoconference.
