Ask me about Jamaica! Are you curious to learn more about Jamaica- to go beyond Reggae and Jerk? Its history, people, politics and culture?

Ever wondered about life in Jamaica beyond the lights of Kingston’s allure? This class offers an ethnographic journey of practises and cultures in rural Jamaica, illustrated through photos, songs and videos. Let's explore life in rural Jamaica!

Born and raised in a remote rural district/village, I will take you on an authentic journey of first hand experiences- reliving fond childhood memories, the stories my grandmother told me and what a typical day is like. This will be grounded in the history and culture of Jamaica.

Coming from a background in diplomacy, sharing about Jamaica's culture and historical experiences has always been essential for opening the door to a deeper unerstanding. I have an avid interest in other cultures and always take the time to explore wherever I go. Having been to South and Central America, Asia, North America and Europe, I know the unique value of such rich experiences. Whenever I was home-sick while posted abroad, talking about my homeland was the only cure.

I will share with you all there is about living in rural Jamaica, from different perspectives of my childhood, teenage years and adult life. One unique bit is that the district's enduring small farms form the centrepiece around which everything revolves.

Come prepared with a curious mind, and if you want to make notes take your pen and paper or do so on your devices.

It is important for me that your are learning, so I encourage you to ask questions.

Let's go beyond Kington's enigma!

Clear material had been prepared but as this was our first session together the flexibility mentioned above was all important.

Diana
Italiaans alle niveaus - kinderen, tieners en volwassenen
Italiaans is mijn moedertaal. Met veel passie wil ik de prachtige Italiaanse taal aanleren volgens je behoeften. Heb je nodig van een ondersteuning voor je studie op school… voor je privé- en beroepsleven? Heeft je kind nodig van hulp bij het maken van het huiswerk? Dat kan allemaal aangeboden worden in een gemoedelijke sfeer bij mij of bij je huis, maar het kan ook online. Ik werk op een natuurlijke manier, en uit de eerste les bent je in staat eenvoudige zinnen te spreken. Als algemene regel geef ik mijn lessen in het Italiaans, zodat je vanaf het begin een effectieve ‘full immersion’ krijgt (ondersteuningstalen zoals Nederlands, Engels of Frans, worden gebruikt als het absoluut noodzakelijk is). Ik leer je hoe de Italiaanse grammatica werkt en hoe je het best een gesprek uitvoert met een native speaker. Ik leer je de taal die tegenwoordig in Italië wordt gesproken door leuke en interactieve lessen.

Learn Armenian language, grammar, literature and history in Western Armenian.
Western Armenian is a language that has been put in the endangered language's list, and I personally believe that such a rich language should never die. I believe that I am taking a huge initiative to be one of the individuals who'll try to save this important language from disappearing. I try to make my lessons as interacting as possible. The lessons and exercises will be provided through PowerPoint presentations. I try to listen to my student in order to prepare the lesson plan together, according to his needs and preferences. I've always been the smiling and friendly tutor who makes the student comfortable during the lessons. I believe that in order to reach the students you need to understand them also emotionally and psychologically.

Généalogie familiale et recherches ciblées - Construire son arbre généalogique
Vous désirez en connaitre un peu plus sur votre histoire familiale, toutefois, vous ne savez pas par ou commencer? Votre grande-tante (ou votre grand-pere peut-etre) vous a fourni des informations sur ce fameux ancetre noble dont la famille descendrait et vous aimeriez en savoir un peu plus sur cet illustre personnage dont on vous a parlé pour confirmer ces dires? Ou alors, vous n’avez simplement aucune information fiable sur vos ancetres au-delà de vos grands parents et cela vous intéresserait de pouvoir nommer vos arrières-grands-parents, découvrir où ils habitaient, quels métiers ils exercaient, ou encore peut etre connaitre leurs hobbys favoris (on peut en effet découvrir énormement d’informations sur nos ancetres grace à des recherches un peu plus poussées). Il se peut également, que vous vous trouviez face à une impasse dans vos recherches et que vous apprécieriez l’aide d’une personne extérieure: quand on est très impliqué dans sa généalogie, il est parfois utile d’avoir un intervenant neutre qui nous aide avec le recul nécessaire pour y voir plus clair et débloquer une situation compliquée. Dans ce cours, je vous propose une immersion dans votre histoire familiale qui vous permettra de mieux connaitre vos ancetres, mais aussi mieux vous connaitre vous-meme.“ Lorsque tu ne sais pas où tu vas, regarde d'où tu viens” (Proverbe Africain). Lors de nos rencontres, nous travaillerons sur les étapes necessaires et essentielles pour découvrir vos racines familiales et créer, petit à petit, un arbre généalogique passionnant et fascinant que vous serez fier/fière de prséenter à votre famille et entourage! Voilà plus de 25 ans que je me suis intéressé pour la premiere fois à l’histoire de ma famille, car j’avais entendu (comme c’est souvent le cas) une anecdote un peu “fantastique” autour d’un fameux ancetre! Mandaté par un proche, j’ai eu pour projet de vérifier cette information. Et c’est ainsi qu’est née ma passion pour cette discipline que j’exerce au quotidien personnellement, ou alors pour aider des clients à mieux organiser leurs recherches et aller de surprises en surprises! C'est lors du confinement de 2020 que j’ai entrepris une formation diplomante en généalogie. D'origines Irlande-USA-Canada et Suisse, mes deux langues principales de travail sont l'anglais et le francais. Je vous propose également mes services si vous désirez me confier la création et la présentation de votre arbre familial. N’hésitez pas à m’en faire part lors de notre premier contact!
