Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
From 2016, I also share my passion for the French language and culture with Dutch speakers, English speakers and Spanish speakers
(Language lessons / Conversation groups from 2 to 5 people / Individual).
Due to my experience with the French and Dutch language, I can identify nice "linguistic bridges" between French and Dutch and focus on language structures that are difficult for Dutch people.

Catherine
French Grammar and French conversation, culture, exercices, questions, translations
I have a passion for French Grammar. I have been teaching French for more than 15 years and I enjoy explaining difficult things in a simple way with clear examples related to the students. I can answer any question about French Grammar or make you practice what you know in theory. I take into account the way of learning of each person and I adapt the class to the needs of the students. I offer classes that are various and interesting, we use articles, videos, exercises, conversation on the topics that are meaningful to you. Your progress, motivation and fun is of great importance to me !

Margot
French conversation course - focus on art and culture.
French native speaker -Do you like art? Do you want to share your feelings about your last exhibition and improve your French? Join me for a French conversation course about art! Talk about your favourite painting or works of art you love and express your thoughts about art and along the way you'll learn art related vocabulary. I focus on speaking, writing, reading and listening and on the French art and culture. We will speak French as much as possible, and of course grammar and conjugation.

French tutoring and French legal vocabulary (all ages)
This class can be about anything that you would like to practice, whether you would like to improve your fluency, your vocabulary, etc., and whether you're at an advanced level or a beginner. I grew up in a family passionate about languages and am excited to teach other people :)

Marcel
For motivated students who want to learn French with a smile ;-)
I like to use different methods to teach French to students. It can be through songs, drama, role play or videos. I also very often use situations close to the student's experience, such as describing places they have been or talking about what they have experienced. At the same time, I teach the grammar rules to the student. I now live in regions where French has been spoken for over 30 years. Because I have learned French myself (and I am still learning other languages), I can easily put myself in a student's shoes. I can teach in French, Dutch, English, German and Russian.

Goedele
French tutoring all levels - Guidance study method
I teach French to almost all ages, from 10 to 18 years old. Also guiding, reading and correcting more extensive final projects (Dutch and French). I use, among other things, the practice tasks that handbooks offer on their site, and any practice material that the teacher offers via smart school. If necessary, I study together with the student until he / she can do it alone.

Olivia
French Language for Business, learn to speak and act appropriately in business settings
Bonjour, my name is Olivia and I have a Master in teaching French language as well as the certification for the IB program (bilingual exam). I'm also experienced in teaching French to company professionals working in- or with French companies. After having lived for 20 years in Asia and taught different nationalities, I've developed an inspiring and interactive method to teach French language linked with the French culture; food, people, art, fashion. I guess language is the first step but the "Etiquette" is what makes you more French in being successful in business settings. With me, you will learn French at your pace, according to your needs, your motivation and the request from your company.

Vincent
French lessons given by a motivated and motivating teacher!
Teacher for more than seven years in Geneva, I am passionate about my work and, in general, by the French language. I can help you in language as in literature; together we will find the means for you to progress. My goal is to give meaning to knowledge and to show that we can study French while having fun! I also have a master's degree in modern French, general history and French didactics. I offer weekly monitoring through an online platform, so you can measure your progress and practice outside of lessons. I like to offer several means of learning, from the most basic (doing exercises, copying sentences) to the most modern (playing small games, watching videos ...). It all depends on the student and their expectations. No method is imposed; the important thing is that you feel good and that you can familiarize yourself with the tools adapted to your profile. It is quite possible for me to help with the writing / correction of work, to finish; I will not do them for you of course, but can provide you with the support and follow-up you need to make them happen. See you soon !

Alejandro & Eléa
Private maths, physics and French lessons and homework help, Tutors 5 years of experience
We are two math and physics tutors and help with homework for all levels up to university. We give our private lessons online via zoom. We have decided to create a common profile in order to best meet the demands of our students and thus ensure the most adequate support according to their profile and expectations. Alejandro: I am a master's student in sustainable development. Before that I obtained my Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at EPFL. I offer math / physics courses for students who need help to follow their courses as well as those in search of improvement. Elea: I graduated from the school of speech therapy (speech therapy) at La Sorbonne University in Paris in July. Before my training, I obtained my scientific baccalaureate with honors, and completed a year of preparation for speech therapy competitions. I thus have a scientific and literary background allowing me to support your child in all the subjects of his school curriculum. I would like to point out that I am offering private lessons here in a school setting and not speech therapy sessions which are part of the care. Nevertheless, my training allows me to demonstrate a pedagogy taking into account the profile of your child. Comprehensive and methodical, we personalize our lessons to be able to provide solid support to our students. Our courses allow you to acquire methods of reflection and resolution of exercises to better tackle these subjects. Our goal is to help our students gain confidence and skills in the targeted subjects, so they can face the exams with confidence. Are you not convinced of the effectiveness of online courses? We invite you to ask us for more information on the course of the distance learning courses, guaranteeing you a safe learning.

Phillip
Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you
