History, Humanities, Essay-writing and exam prep

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
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 teaching History and Political Science for both school (iGCSE, A-Level, IB) and university (Bachelors). My teaching focuses on 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.

Reviews (2)

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.

Private lessons / preparation for Grandes Ecoles competitions: economics, political science, general culture, English, French
Doctor in political science and graduate in economics (Master), I have been teaching humanities in English and French in various grandes écoles (IEP) and business schools (EDHEC, SKEMA) for more than ten years. Always respectful of the pace and needs of my students, I help them achieve their goals (preparation of files or entrance exams to high school, validation of exams ...) serenely. For ten years, my goal has been the same: to help my students to surpass themselves by communicating to them a deep joy of learning. I suggest you help you refine your file, consolidate your knowledge (general culture, economics or political science) and sharpen your skills (reflection / writing / presentation) so that, rather than arid "tests", your exams become opportunities or occasions to demonstrate your progress.

Learn Polish for everyday use, university, tourism with FUN and passion
I am a native speaker of Polish. I attended a Polish primary and secondary school and recently obtained a C2 exam. 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 understand those complex noun cases and verbs. 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 Polish, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels and with a variety of needs, 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 can prepare you 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).

Economy - Political Sciences - International Relations
Studies in economics, political science, international relations, can often seem very theoretical and abstract. I myself taught Bachelor and Master students when I was a doctorate, so I am well aware of it ...... what I can offer you are concrete insights into my professional experience as an economist in international organizations and a diplomat to make the link between theory and real life so to speak! Not only will this help you achieve academic excellence, but it will give you the necessary tools to develop your critical thinking and capacity for analyzing economic and political developments; which will help you define a relevant professional project. In terms of methodology, I emphasize the structure of reasoning, mastery of the syllabus, and clarity of expression. I have written several books and given numerous public speeches. I will coach you until we are both confident in your success. In addition to academic support, I also offer mentoring and coaching for professional interviews and presentations. All levels are welcome, although master's students and above can benefit the most.

LBS EMBA | Tutoring for Dissertation and Thesis writing for Undergrad, Masters and Doctoral level candidates in business management, interna
Any dissertation, thesis or a similar longer piece of writing comprising several thousand words requires careful planning and expert supervision. University supervisors are usually busy and meet their students only rarely. I act as the student's personal supervisor ready to help with their thesis writing whenever they need me. From the Research Proposal stage to Literature Review, Research Methodology chapter to Data collection and analysis, and Results chapter to Referencing, I guide and assist my clients/students throughout the complicated process. My teaching material always includes a blend of Harvard case studies, textbook chapters, lecture slides, audiovisual material and hands-on software practice (wherever needed). All my tutoring is highly customized to suit each client's particular needs. I also tutor Doctoral candidates studying towards a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) qualification.
