Amélie
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

I am perfectly bilingual in english and french having attended the international school of Geneva and graduated with the international baccalaureate.

Linda
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.

Frances
Tutoring in German and English for all levels
I offer tutoring (help with homework, revision, oral practice ...) in German and English, for children, adolescents and adults of all levels. The approach that I propose is as serious as it is creative, and my learning methods are adapted to the needs and preferences of each one. Whether reading Goethe or discussing movies in English, I will be happy to motivate you or your child to study these languages. English is my mother tongue, and I speak German fluently (among other things thanks to a bilingual high school diploma and a one-year exchange that I did in Munich). I have been offering tutoring in these two languages since 2010.

Private lessons in Chemistry, Bio, English and Maths (general)
I quickly noticed that the problem often comes from understanding the exercises given rather than the course itself, so here's how I like to proceed: I always start by first making sure that the principle of the course is understood by focusing on the points that block, and then we can start looking at the exercises, given by the teacher, that pose a problem. The goal is that at the end of the rehearsal course, the student has in his hands cards with the different methods used to solve all the possible types of exercises, especially those requested in the exam. I myself take care of preparing these sheets during the rehearsal course in order to summarize all the methods acquired.

Fourat
I give math lessons for students in primary, cycles or college.
I have a good pedagogy and easy to pass on information in a pleasant atmosphere. My course illustrated with lots of examples and exercises to facilitate understanding and memorization. - Course of the sessions: The sessions begin with a reminder of the notions seen previously then an explanation of the course taught at school then a direct application of the new notions and finally assignment of the homework to be done for the session which will follow. The methods used are effective through experiments with other students.
