History, Political Science, Essay writing, Test Prep Tutoring

Having worked in an alternative school, my approach is very much based on the understanding and ways of learning of each student. Rather than imposing a specific method on the student I try and understand how they work, how they understand the subject and what the university or school requires of them, and help them improve in the areas needed.

I specialize in tutoring History and Political Science for school (iGCSE, A-LEVEL, IB) and university (Bachelors). I teach both content and form (essay writing and exam prep skills).

About Me

I am an open, multicultural person who thrives on social encounters and intellectual discussion. I was trained in an alternative pedagogical method which focuses on cultivating autonomy in the student in an environment free of fear. As such, trust and respect between the student and the teacher is of vital importance if learning is to occur.

Pierre is a great professional teacher who understands exactly my students needs and how to help me.
I needed help in writing my statement of purpose, I didn't even know where to start. He was very good at asking the right questions allowing me to put my thoughts in order to plan out how to begin writing. I highly recommend him as he knows very well what he's doing and has experience.

I specialise in History A Level (Edexcel and AQA) and IB. I am an english native speaker with three years teaching experience in an alternative boarding school in Hampshire and work with a distinctive teaching style adapted to each student's needs and personality. Rather than trying to cram in a bunch of facts I approach history as a curiosity: what makes it interesting? why is it relevant to our lives today? Why, indeed, do they say that history always repeats itself - is it that we can never learn from the past? These are the kind of meta-questions that will run through our classes most of which will be discussion based and will include homework, short exercises, co-marking and assignment of additional readings to complement your syllabus.

English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students) + IELTS
I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

Louise

Take your English or German to the next level with me!
"One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way." I am an absolute language enthusiast, who is as well lucky to pursue her greatest hobby at the university - I study to become a teacher of both English and German. I specialize in teaching mostly through conversation, during which I as well explain the main principles of grammar. Why so? I do not want my students to be overwhelmed by grammar and only get a minor option to speak and use what they just learned. This way of teaching as well allows me (and my students) to get to know each other better, which I find important. I prefer eye to eye lessons to the ones through Skype, as I believe that it makes a great difference when you know your language partner in person, not only through a laptop screen. Do not hesitate to contact me, I am looking forward to meeting you!

Rory
Conversational and Written English, including Proofreading, Public Speaking and Interview Preparation
I am a TEFL-qualified native English speaker from Ireland, who specializes in Conversational and Business English. I also have a Ph.D. in History and spent years teaching at Trinity College Dublin before working for 3 years as a financial recruitment consultant training candidates to secure their perfect job. I use my professional experience to guide students through unique challenges, such as; making presentations in English, proofreading written work including theses, CV writing and preparing for an interview in English. Whatever your specific English requirements are, I can assist. I practice the "Dogme Teaching Method", which focuses classes on the students' specific needs and interests, rather than spending time on irrelevant grammar or language that the student will not use.

Miquel Matas
Comprehensive English: Conversation, grammar and reading comprehension
Normally the foreign language is learned in an unnatural way by focusing on grammar and writing, when in reality we know that a language is learned first by speaking and then by reading and writing. Just as young children do, remembering and associating. Learning to use and enjoy a language is the basis for learning to read and write later. With this inversion of the order of the factors, the learning of grammatical rules and spelling is not forgotten, but rather they can be learned more easily as soon as they begin to acquire oral skills.

Availability in all Barcelona areas, we can meet in a cafe, your workplace or at your house.

I normally work in a detail-oriented way, paying meticulous attention to details through a bottom-up approach when it comes to master a language. Teaching is my passion, and I deeply love sharing my linguistic knowledge with students and non-proficient users of English by means of continuous interaction, that is, a communicative approach, being able to adapt my methods depending on the learner's needs.
