Learn Key Ideas From Leading Figures in Philosophy

I have a BA and MA in philosophy and my goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. My class will give students a comprehensive, but manageable, introduction to key philosophy ideas from leading figures in western philosophy with a strong emphasis on idea-engagement, encouraging students to formulate their own perspectives.

-Single lesson package:
Students will receive a lesson in, and explore the ideas of, Plato, Kant, and Nietzsche.

- Five lesson package
Students will receive homework and will engage with the ideas of Aristotle and Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, Sartre, and Heidegger.

- Ten lesson package
Students will be given a comprehensive philosophy package. We will start by exploring the Pre-Socratics, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. We then will investigate the ideas of Descartes, Kant and Locke. We then proceed to explore more contemporary philosophy, exploring Nietzsche, Sartre, and Heidegger.

Ancient Greek lessons for all levels (beginners, intermediates, higher education students) - ADULTS

The course calls on basic French grammar knowledge, which can be reviewed as needed.

Learn (modern) Greek for everyday use, university, tourism with FUN and passion / (ancient) Greek for school and university
I am a native speaker of Greek. I graduated from a Greek high school and, later, the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. During our lessons, I'll help you develop your skills (oral/written, and not only). I'll also try to help you improve your pronunciation and spelling. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching Greek, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels, mainly individually. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I would love to help you prepare for state certificates such as A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE). Regarding Ancient Greek, I can help you with commentaries/translations/grammar/syntax: - Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, - Homer, Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, Sappho, - Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon.

Greek: language, literature, and culture tutoring (professional, academic, creative, slang, travelling)
The lessons are designed around your needs and learning plans. We can start from zero but also build together on what you already know and acquire native-level pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, with diverse material that revolves around your interests and lifestyle. The classes are meant to be a full experience of Greek-ness that keep you stimulated while learning naturally, easily, and confidently. Regarding more advanced skills, we can focus on: creative writing in Greek, academic skills, job applications and grant proposals, slang, travelling Greek, Greek culture and literature. Book your first lesson, so we can discuss about your goals and outline together your path to fluency.

Philosophie niveau lycée : préparation au baccalauréat de philosophie
La philosophie est une matière souvent mal vue ou perçue comme difficile, c'est pour cela que l'enseignement de la philosophie est délicat. Pour se faire, il faut aider un maximum l'étudiant dans ses révisions, dans la compréhension et dans l'abord de la matière. Le but de ce cours est de mettre l'étudiant ou l'élève en confiance avec la matière afin d'aborder plus sérieusement les notions et les exercices demandés pour les examens finaux : le baccalauréat de philosophie. Afin d'aider au mieux l'élève ou l'étudiant, nous reviendrons ensemble sur les difficultés et ou les incompréhensions pour les corriger et permettre à ce dernier de réussir au mieux sa scolarité en philosophie. Nous aborderons alors plus sereinement les exercices écrits tels que la dissertation ou l'explication de texte. Afin de préparer au mieux l'élève ou l'étudiant, je propose plusieurs exercices écrits voire des bacs blancs en fin d'année pour évaluer concrètement l'élève ou l'étudiant et lui permettre de se situer pour le jour de l'examen. Plus on s'entraine, plus c'est simple pour la suite. Je suis toujours à l'écoute et remets en question mes méthodes si cela ne fonctionne pas. Ce cours est un lieu de bienveillance, sans jugement. Ce cours sert à progresser à sa vitesse sans d'autres élèves autour. Le cours se propose comme un cours magistral ou comme une discussion constante entre l'élève et moi-même.

It's all Greek to me: Learning Ancient Greek in a modern way
Having the longest documented history of any Indo-European language, the Greek language holds a very important place in the history of the Western World. As a native speaker of Greek and holding a BA in History and Archaeology from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, as well as an MA and a PhD in Classical Archaeology from the same University, I am ready to help you learn Greek effectively and pleasantly. Either being a beginner or an advanced student, you can get acquainted with the Greek Language and Culture or penetrate its mysteries through intensive or specialized courses. Having a ---more than 20 years--- experience in Teaching Greek for children and adults, I would be glad to share my passion for the Greek language, Ancient and Modern alike, through courses built upon each student's level, motivation and learning needs. This course is addressed to those who: ---Wish to gain a basic knowledge in Ancient Greek. ---Wish to prepare especially for their exams in Ancient Greek (university entrance exams for senior high school students or university students of all levels). ---Wish to learn Ancient Greek in depth and gradually gain access to literature, culture, and ancient history.

Introduction to Philosophy - Beginner's guide to reading philosophy and introduction to basic philosophical dilemmas
During this course, I shall introduce some of the basic philosophical problems whose study can provide insight on how to approach the subject. I will assign a reading before each class which I will proceed to discuss. There are no right or wrong answers at this stage as the goal is to become familiar with these problems and learn how to formulate philosophical arguments for the same.

Reinforcement classes ESO and Baccalaureate in Humanities.
Reinforcement classes for ESO and Baccalaureate students in the humanities branch. I am studying Classical Philology at USAL and I combine it with private classes. I have several months of experience teaching reinforcement classes to ESO and Baccalaureate students. I like to dedicate some time before each class to prepare it and design a specific plan for each student taking into account their needs. I am an attentive, patient, professional and didactic teacher: I constantly try to make sure that my student has understood what I have explained.

Let's make philosophy great again ! I teach philosophy and you deserve to know philosophy and think philosophicaly
Philosophy is not only useful for classes, but also for your intellectual and critical abilities. I focuse on method, making people start a reflexion from zero to complex and deep conceptual problems. This tends to become a real game, that stimulates and satisfies people and me.

Théo
Develop your philosophical reflection for a personal purpose or train for philosophy exams
I would like in this course to deepen with you the reading of a text or a theme of your choice, by giving you the keys to understanding a specific author or a corpus of authors. The aim of this course would thus be to help you develop an autonomy in the exploration of philosophical texts, but also to broaden your thinking to new possibilities of analysis and understanding of reality. I can also bring a more academic knowledge relating to the method and the culture required in a cegep course. I graduated from a research master in philosophy at the Sorbonne. My main line of research is oriented towards phenomenology, feminism and gender theory, but I also have solid knowledge in the history of philosophy, in epistemology and history of science, in political philosophy as well as in the philosophy of art and aesthetics. Looking forward to being able to share my passion with you! Theo

Learn greek language and culture easily and efficiently.
Hi! My name is Maria and i lam a certified teacher of greek lamguage and culture. I also holda Master Degree in teaching greek as a second or foreign language. My 8-year experience in teaching greek language and civilization in native and foreign speakers made me understand how passionate i am with the Greek Language and greek civilization, the birthplace of the Western Culture. If you have the same passion with me, lets travel in this amazing and interesting world of greek way of thinking!!! I Have been teaching Greek since 2014. My teaching experience taught me that each studend has his own personal needs, learning style and level of knowledge. My first priority is to be a welcome environment, the students to feel comfortable and relaxed to take their time, to make mistakes and express their thoughts about the content of the lessons. Wether you want to start now learningthe language or get a certificate, i am more than excited and wiiling to hel you as much as i can. The most important thing that you should know and it will help me find the best and appropriate way of achieving your goal is to know why you what to learn this language. I focus on the communicative aspect of language through conversation, role games whatever it needs to develop your speaking, listening andwriting skills. I do my best for the lesson to be as interesting including not only books and vocabulary lists but also videos, films which can help you understand the cultural aspect of greek language. I provide students with homework and study for self-preparation.
