Brigitte is a fantastic teacher! She came well prepared and brought source material for me to keep . She clearly knows sewing inside and out . In addition to learning the main subject of hand sewing she had lots of tips for other parts of construction as well. Highly recommend !
I absolutely adore my time spent with Brigitte. Not only is she an incredibly skilled sewing instructor, but she also goes above and beyond in imparting her wealth of knowledge about the fashion industry, fabrics, and materials. This aspect has been invaluable to me, considering my lack of formal education in fashion. Brigitte's expertise shines through as she generously shares extra insights from textbooks, which have proven particularly beneficial in my endeavors, such as creating corsets and stays. Moreover, her guidance extends beyond mere craftsmanship; she educates on the importance of accurately pricing garments to ensure profitability—a testament to her comprehensive approach. Thanks to her mentorship, I've experienced significant growth and am eagerly looking forward to advancing further under her tutelage.
She is amazing and kind! Look forward to a long journey of learning with her! Absolutely recommend her, she is spectacular with kids.
Hello, my class with Brigitte was great, we went through the basics and we shall thus continue once I am able to practice a little more. She was organized, kind, and took her time to teach me every detail of how to use the machine; and some basics in patters/ sewing patterns.
Brigitte was encouraging, inspiring and informative. I look forward to keep working with her.

I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.

homework help - private lessons in English, French and Spanish - childcare
Hello, I offer academic support in all subjects from primary to secondary school, as well as English and Spanish lessons. A doctoral student in geography at the Sorbonne, I am familiar with the educational and academic system. I would like to use my experience through personalized monitoring of a student. In particular, I am able to provide assistance in methods of learning and assimilation of knowledge. I myself benefited from homework help during my schooling, my father is a university professor. I have already provided homework help to primary and middle school students, and I have taught at university. It seems important to me to be able to put oneself in the student's place in order to understand what they do not understand and to adapt the help to measure. Through my research work abroad, I acquired a good command of English and Spanish. I therefore also offer private English lessons. I am also available punctually, or regularly in the evening, to babysit. I already have experience in babysitting.

Audrey
Learning English is easy! Trust yourself -lessons of writing, reading and oral expression for all levels
Hello my name is Audrey! I'm a student in international relations and Chinese foreign languages at INALCO. Because of my studies and having traveled a lot, I know how difficult it can be to learn a foreign language and how difficult it can be to overcome certain levels and to be confident in a language that is not our mother tongue. That's why I offer you my help! I am a French native from Poitou Charente. I traveled all around the world when i was a teenager and a young adult especially in Asia. Now i'm finishing my studies in Paris. For several years, I have been teaching English to children and adults of all levels. I have accompanied Koreans, Iranians, French etc. My goal is that you enjoy learning English and reach your goals. The course will be totally personalized and adapted to your needs and interests. I will also introduce you to the culture during our lessons (current events, highlights of the year, etc.) because in order to learn a language you need to understand the culture of the country. My classes will focus on the five skills: speaking, writing, listening, reading and grammar. Of course, if you wish to work on only one aspect in particular, this will be possible. We can use the material you have or we can also work with the resources I have. At your request and according to your needs I can give you homework to continue your efforts outside of our classes. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I will be happy to discuss with you your expectations, your goals and my work method. I look forward to helping you in your quest to master the English language.

Olivier
Homework help in French and Maths from CP to 3rd grade (-50% tax credit!)
- If you are tired of paying tutoring organizations that send you students who have the knowledge but not the pedagogy... - If you are tired of only finding highly qualified teachers while your daughter is only in 5th grade... You have come across the right ad! ★ I am versatile: I can help your children with French and Maths. I can also help them in English and Spanish but I should point out that I am not trilingual, I provide academic support. ★ I'm listening: A prior discussion with parents is essential in order to know precisely the academic problems of their children and to best guide my lessons. I also like to ask the children afterwards what their difficulties are to see if parents and children have the same perception. When the assessment is established, I question the students on what they are studying in class with a view to following the program while trying to review specific points that have not been assimilated. I mainly use their courses and their textbooks so that my students keep their bearings, but if necessary I use the material I have. ★ I am a translator of incomprehensible courses: Indeed, the lessons are completely incomprehensible for most students. They are formalized in a way that no teenager can understand them. All students have the potential to become good as long as the concepts are well explained. My mission is therefore to simplify them and transcribe them into clear language. ★ I am methodical: I have improved my working methods through my 8 years of teaching. They are based on understanding and not on rote learning. The students must be able to re-explain their lesson to me and thus demonstrate that it has been completely understood. I give exercises of increasing difficulty and which allow optimal progression. I can also give exercises to do for the next session. When there is time left, I even take the opportunity to move forward with the program so that they get the best possible grades! ★ I am a coach with a psychological approach: During my adolescence, I was school phobic and that's why I do everything to help my students feel better at school. I'm not just here to help them with their homework. All my lessons are personalized because each student is different. I like to know how they perceive the subject, if they appreciate their teachers in class, the job they want to do later... I make a point of letting my students find the solutions to the exercises on their own so that they are proud of themselves. In addition, I will encourage them to develop a taste for effort (pay attention to their spelling and write neatly) in order to systematically produce quality work and gain self-esteem. I restore confidence in my students because it is important that they are happy and motivated to be effective in their work. ★ I do my job with pleasure: I like to pass on knowledge and see my students progress. Teaching is for me a real pleasure and not a nutritional need. I therefore offer real supervision throughout the school year. Observation, listening, work and encouragement are the 4 pillars of my teaching. The goal is for them to be autonomous and independent at the end of the school year! My lessons boil down to this: good humor and efficiency! ★ Hours: - Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. - Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ★ Classes at your home in Paris: ★ Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions because I am very responsive on Apprentus (around 1 hour). We will therefore be able to organize a first course quickly. See you soon !

SCHOOL SUPPORT - for the student (Primary & Middle School)
I offer academic support from primary to secondary school (only in the general sector). I consider mutual trust to be an essential element during lessons. I am aware that struggling students are sometimes hesitant to ask questions for fear of feeling embarrassed. With me, it's different: no question or error is considered "stupid". Our goal is to learn, and it is by making mistakes that we progress! In addition, I am committed to following the student's pace and adapting to them and to your requests so that the lessons are the most effective for their learning.

Microeconomics and Macroeconomics with practical cases
Microeconomics: This course revolves around these notions: - CONSUMER CHOICE THEORY: marginal utility, indifference curve - THE CONSUMER'S BALANCE: budget constraint - THE THEORY OF DEMAND: substitution and income effect, elasticity My courses are aimed at students from business and management schools who have difficulty in the following subjects: - Microeconomics - Macroeconomics - Statistics - Probabilities - Financial analysis - Accounting - Taxation Macroeconomics: The objective of the course is to present the fundamental concepts of macroeconomics in order to lay the foundations for understanding economic phenomena on the one hand, and on the other hand helping to make a judgment in order to evaluate economic policy recommendations. In summary, the macroeconomist pursues four major objectives: 1. the determination of the aggregates making it possible to explain the behavior of the groups of agent: it is the object of the macroeconomic accounting; 2. the study of the relationships between these variables in order to determine the existence of stable relationships over time: this is the subject of macroeconomic laws; 3. analysis of the main imbalances that may appear between the aggregates: price increase, unemployment, deficit in public finances, deficit in the trade balance with foreign countries: this is the subject of macroeconomic modelling; 4. the study of the means to correct these imbalances and to achieve certain set goals (price stability, full employment, external balance, etc.): this is the object of economic policy.

Assia
Homework help - all levels, from CP to Terminale
Hello ! I am Assia, I am 25 years old and I am in Master 2 of Financial Law. I offer help with homework, whatever the age and level of the student. I did a high school diploma in Maths with T. Good. The homework help I offer consists of a reminder of the course, then support to help the student solve the exercise on his own so that I can identify the flaws and gaps that need to be filled. The idea is to be able to transmit the course and the method so that the student can become independent, without ever becoming psychologically dependent on the tutoring and homework assistance sessions, and that he can gain confidence. This is how I have been doing it for over 5 years and parents and children are delighted with this method. Feel free to contact me for more details. I live in Chatou but I can move everywhere.
