    English and Spanish presentation coaching for professionals and personal development. Dynamic, provoking, self-challenging and practice.

    Effective speaking with an audience should not rely on boring PowerPoint slides. The ability to give a presentation is a much misused skill. Presenters regularly provide what interests themselves rather than their audience and couple this with the popular beliefe that we remember what we see in writing. A fact that is totally untrue.

    Through dynamic, thought-provoking and self-challenging courses, couples with extensive practice, I will teach you the golden rules needed to organise your presentations, identify, engage with your audience and importantly adapt to your audience.

    All speaking is a form of selling, whether it is a product, an idea, a project or even yourself to a company. Most people face nervousness and shyness when it comes to speaking in public. Although it could be learned by practice, it is a bad teacher unless it is not coupled with effective feedback.

    Ask yourself, what do I want my audience to take from my presentation, what should they do with this information? If your audience does not take anything away or cannot do anything with this information, then you might just as well have been storytelling, perhaps well, but you have not given a good presentation.

    This class is for academics, managers, business people and those interested in improving their presentation skills, body language, and structure of their talk in a simple and effective manner that everyone can remember.

    My course is also intended for those seeking to improve their spoken language skills in Spanish and English. I am native in Spanish and fluent in English having recently finished my PhD in Humanitarian studies from the University of Manchester, UK.

    I am a passionate coach with a strong academic background. I discovered my passion for teaching and mentoring others while travelling and working around the world with different NGOs and enterprises. I use an innovative methodology that put the students' strengths at the foreground to overcome shyness and fear when it comes to speaking in public. I welcome people from all genders and ages interested in providing professional and effective presentations either in English and \ or Spanish.

    Extra information

    During the first session, we will discuss what you aim to improve and why you aim to improve it. We will discuss the proposed methodology and I will carry out an initial assessment in order for me to create a class tailored to your specific needs and requirements.

    Intensive private latin dance courses (Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Chacha, Zouk antillais, Kuduru-african dance, Brazilian zouk)
    Private lessons / intensive Latin dance training (Cuban salsa, porto / LA salsa, bachata, merengue, chacha, zouk antillais, African kuduru-dance, Brazilian zouk *) (* = it's THE dance of the moment that paradoxically has nothing zouk or anything Brazilian - today it's pop music for two, mixing creativity, sensuality, air fluidity that plays a lot with the movements of bust, head and body undulations.) METHODOLOGY Learn dance and let talk about your body / emotions, make the difference in the evening ("social dancing") or prepare an event (wedding for example): Focused on pedagogy, technique and pleasure, the dance space offers personalized and individualized courses of Salsa (porto on 1, Cuban), Bachata, Merengue, Kuduru-African dance, Zouk Antillais, Zouk Brazilian (pop music) (...) according to your desires. Objective: to adapt to your request and your desire. In the eyes of many neophytes, a couple who dance well performs spectacular figures. To dance is to tell / live together a story, to produce beauty in movement and to make the steps, the attitudes and the connections between the various actions aesthetic / harmonious. This fluidity is born of emotion, felt and transmitted. Simplicity, communication, listening, sharing, emotion, valorization of the other: it is, in addition to technical knowledge (body expression, rhythmic, visual), what you will improve during this training at evolutive levels. In a friendly atmosphere, you will be taken in hand whatever your initial level. Objective: a combination between on the one hand, intuition / feeling / improvisation and on the other hand, technique. It is possible to take the course in couple or solo. According to your desire, it is possible to propose 70% of a 1st dance, 30% of another complementary dance, the bases of the one influencing the other. Whether you are preparing a "choreography" for a special event (wedding, birthday, work, etc.), a show or simply looking to improve your skills to impress on the dance floor, the final learning of these courses consists in : * perform a beautiful interpretation of the music with appropriate movements, in addition to performing a dynamic work that involves a footwork and body movements adapted * execute an appropriate technique that will allow you to shine quickly on the dance floor, relying on the strong point of private lessons * Set up style, movement, footwork, and adjusted body coordination, allowing for rapid dance progression, while taking advanced base steps and a variety of movements, allowing you to not only acquire a sensual style but also to improve his own improvisational abilities, focusing on the characteristics of modern dance. * work on your balance, your musicality, your body strength (...), while having fun, while you train and radically improve the coordination of your body. In summary, these courses are at the beginner level (basic steps with some general variations), intermediate (faster speed and more concentration on technique, body mechanics, control, footwork, posture, balance and more complex movements) or advanced (for slightly more experienced dancers). Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *. (* study 2020) To respond to requests received, it is indeed possible to offer this course (birthday, party, christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice. TEACHER / TRAINER In Europe, Latin America or North America, our teacher has specialized and worked for more than 17 years in the field of dance, in renowned international institutions, with for words the individualized pedagogy, and the careful methodology , all anchored in a pleasant and jovial moment. LOCATION, SCHEDULE - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (example: notes that can be re-read on the chat). In this context, the videoconference sessions for which you asked me to seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place very optimally and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

    Online or at-home English tutoring for Beginners or Advanced users
    Hello! My name is Stavie and I've been using English ever since I can remember! Because of this, I am interested in helping others discover, learn, or improve their English skills. Have you just started learning English and you need someone to help you with this journey? Do you already have a good level you just need someone to practice with? Would you like help with an interview or presentation in English? I can help you learn a language from scratch or help you practice so you can use the language at work or in a personal setting. In our first lesson we will have a casual talk, ideally in English so that I understand your level, and we will discuss your needs and objectives in order to set the goals of our course. As a Communications professional, I have spent the past six years studying and working primarily in English. Being a bilingual English-Greek speaker, I am attracted to teaching because it not only allows me to discover new abilities and develop them but also provides me with the opportunity to share my knowledge with people who are keen on learning something new. My experience allows me to offer courses for both teenagers and adults. I can also offer support with homework in English for Elementary, Secondary and High-School Students.

    Courses in language, culture and Italian literature
    I'm afraid my letter is a bit long, but it's worth reading. It's early 2012 that I hear about an Italian scholarship. So, after my baccalaureate, I decided to take the steps to continue my studies in Italy. For this you had to enroll in a private Italian language school in partnership with the Embassy of Italy in my country Gabon, take Italian lessons for 6 months after which you are subject to an examination that you must to validate for obtaining your visa was one of the conditions. On August 27, 2018 I flew to Italy aboard Lufthansa a German company, obviously equipped with a student visa that I would add to my file so that there is no doubt. I dream of becoming an accountant as one of my uncles, having a bac economy too, for me it sticks. But my mother who is a teacher, inviting me to study to teach Italian, I do not tell myself why not, tale of the shortage of Italian teacher in my country, so everything is easy for them: integration into the public service etc. In addition it is a language that I like since very small, so I decided to embark on this adventure After my License I decided to try my luck as exchange student (Erasmus) in Geneva. So I moved to Geneva in September 2017, but unfortunately Italy removes my scholarship, I unfortunately combined with money problems, but with the help of my parents I was able to finish 'year. I propose myself as a teacher of language, culture and Italian literature, share my modest journey with you.

    Courses in French, Dutch, English, Mathematics, History, International Relations, Law, Science and Geography.
    I am a Belgian (flamish) and French student who just completed a master in International Law, at the University of Amsterdam. I did my Bachelors in International Relations at the University of Geneva (magna cum laude) and a 6 months-exchange at UCSB (University California Santa Barbara). I also did my secondary education in an international high school in France, where I specialized in sciences (18/20 for the final scientific baccalaureate). The classes I had there were given out in French, English, Dutch and Spanish. My previous tutoring experience: 2021/2022: I was working at "bijlesthuis", a dutch tutoring institution. My students were mostly adults who were seeking to improve their levels in french, dutch and english. In parallel, I was also giving classes to other students through apprentices. 2021 Through Apprentus and other websites, I helped several younger students (5-15 years old) with improving their skills (notably in maths and french), this was in Bern and Geneva. 2017/2020: I worked for three years in a tutoring institution in Geneva ( called ARA), where I was mainly teaching French, mathematics and English. During this time I also worked for two years in a Private School (Florimont), where I was taking care of different classes of students (11-16 years old). I was responsible for helping out the students with their homework (in various subjects). I can teach in French, Dutch and English. I love teaching and helping students with progressing and learning new skills. I am a flexible, calm and positive person! Looking forward to meeting you! Amelie
