Elise - Écublens, SwitzerlandC$89
Trusted teacher: French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Jaye - TurkeyC$43
Trusted teacher: I deeply enjoy Shakespeare and have been tutoring Shakespeare for eight years now. I did well in English in high school and have been tutoring English for several years, and Shakespeare has always been an integral part of that. I generally have two primary goals. Firstly, helping students to understand the language itself. If a student is new to Shakespeare or lacking confidence in English, the plays can seem intelligible. However, if you work through the text patiently with a student, and show them how it works with modern day English, their confidence generally grows and so does the accessibility of the text for them. This leads me to my second goal with the student, which is to help them understand the themes and value of the text, so they can see how it relates to their reality. Depending on the student’s engagement, objectives and learning style, this can be done a variety of ways such as using modern adaptations, videos or breaking it down line by line. I work to be flexibly and adapt my teaching to the student as much as possible, to ensure the most positive experience for them.

To find out more about the nature of seminars offered in this programme, please see the profile section at the bottom of this page. *** The written record of European literature begins with epic poetry in Greece. By portraying an objective world, these epics open a window into the past. In many cases, they even provide a key to deciphering it. And the reverse is true as well, for our recorded epics pose a host of challenges to understanding that require insight into the history of religion, military practices, economy, seafaring and politics among others. To truly understand our epics, we must, however, consider the texts themselves. “Iliad” and “Odyssey” date back to the 8th century BCE. They mark not only the beginning of Greek literature but are at the same time a pinnacle of it. Greek culture laid the bedrock for all the major poetic domains in Europe, creating exemplary masterpieces of epic, lyric and dramatic poetry. “Iliad” and “Odyssey”, the greatest representatives of an otherwise mostly lost epic tradition, have in turn been the models for the whole of Greek literature, most notably for Greek lyric and the immensely influential dramatic poetry of 5th-century Athens. Hence, the reputation of their author as the father of European poetry is well-deserved. But who was this man? Homer, the fabled poet gifted the songs about an epic world by the Gods themselves, has been shrouded in mystery all along; and although he would become the greatest teacher of the Greek world, modern science attempted to relegate him – more precisely: his authorship of “Iliad” and “Odyssey” – to the realm of fable for good. With the so-called ‘Homeric question’ occupying the minds of philologists for over 200 years now, tremendous scientific, learned and, not least, enthusiastic effort has been mustered to explain all sorts of inconsistencies, oddities and obscurities contained within the 24 books of either epic poem. Even so the strictly authorial question proved ultimately to be a Danaidean tub, the furtherance in the understanding of both epics afforded by these debates is still invaluable. Anyone wishing to become acquainted with Homer’s great epics of the heroic and the cunning is well-advised to draw on their knowledge for guiding his or her own careful, critical and aesthetically conscious reading. This seminar intends to provide exactly that. According to the different composition of “Iliad” and “Odyssey”, we will proceed one or more books at a time. The aim will be the thorough understanding of the text at hand, for which purpose we will familiarise ourselves also with historical circumstances of pre- and post-Homeric times. As always, the seminar is meant for anyone from first beginner – be that in Homer, in Greek/European literature or in literature in general – to advanced ‘Homeride’. Depending on your interests, we can also include sessions on Homer’s influence on later Greek or modern literature, on his treatment in ancient poetics or modern literary theory and suchlike. You need not have any knowledge of ancient Greek, but if you are interested in it, important notions and phrases will be explained to you. In any case, the translation we choose will be discussed in such a way as to make the original text transparent to you. You might be surprised as to how great differences between the two can be, and as to what different languages can or simply cannot express.
