    History, French lessons and Test Prep/Essay writing tutoring, by a postgraduate student at ENS in Paris and at Cambridge University

    As a skilled researcher with competence over all periods of History, as well as a native speaker of French with academic writing proficiency, I am very keen to being able to help, support and accompany students towards their academic success. I specialize in teaching History and French at any level, as well as tutoring to strengthen the student's working methods and accompany him/her in his/her orientation towards higher education.

    My teaching and tutoring classes not only reinforce the student's general and subject-related knowledge, but above all help him/her to develop and express his/her critical mind. To achieve this, my pedagogy is based on dialogue and listening, constantly targeting possible blockages and difficulties, and striving to strengthen the student’s self-confidence. In this respect, even though applied to the subject of History, the skills acquired in my class prove to be very beneficial, as they lead to progression in other subjects such as philosophy, geography, etc..., and in the framework of written and oral exams, especially for the entrance to higher education.

    For this summer, my classes in History focus on reinforcing what has been learned and what was missed out during the coronavirus crisis; on introducing and preparing to the following year's program and also on exploring other time periods; and finally on the preparation for exams or long term projects such as dissertation writing.

    Sessions of at least 2 hours are most beneficial, and I also offer sessions of 3 hours.

    Furthermore, my French classes are tailored around the needs of the student: they can focus on essay-writing training, on conversation in total immersion, and more. I find 1,5 hour-long classes to be most beneficial, as more would tire the student.

    About Me

    Student in History, I have graduated from my master's degree at the École normale supérieure (ENS) with First Class Honours, ending six years of higher education in Paris, and will be continuing with a second master's at the University of Cambridge in the fall. As a skilled researcher with competence over all periods of History, as well as a native speaker of French with academic writing proficiency, I am very keen to being able to help, support and accompany students towards their academic success. I specialize in teaching History for all audiences, French for the Anglophone public, as well as tutoring to strengthen the student's working methods (essay writing, exam preparation) and accompany him/her in his/her orientation towards French and/or Anglophone higher education.

    Education

    B.A. in History at La Sorbonne (2017), with Upper Second Class Honours ; M.A. in Transnational History at Ecole normale supérieure (ENS), one of the most prestigious and selective higher education institutions in France (2020), with First Class Honours ; Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in World History at the University of Cambridge (2021, upcoming)

    Experience / Qualifications

    My experience of tutoring : a total of six hours of intensive preparation for a high-school student’s mock exams in History. Himself a good student, but with weaknesses in his writing and a lack of confidence in his abilities - his earlier marks were around 55-60%.
    In two sessions, I was first able to clarify certain points of the program, and I helped him to focus on and identify the most relevant information, through discussion and exchange. We then worked on a method of learning and understanding the concepts, rather than simply memorizing them. And, finally, we worked together on practice tests, focusing point by point on the intricacies of essay writing – he then worked on his own, on different parts of the exam, under the same time conditions, writing as many notes as possible. We then reviewed both the content and the form, making my suggestions accordingly : his homework was to produce the whole in writing, which we reviewed together during the following session.
    In addition, I was available on the phone for last-minute queries. As a result, he obtained a First (70%), and was able to reuse the same methods he acquired in other subjects through my tutoring.

    Preparation for DELF B1, B2 / DALF C1 / C2. French as a foreign language course by university.
    My course is intended for non-francophone adults of all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced). Using a recognized and effective learning method like the Alter Ego method as well as all the specialized works in French as a foreign language, my course has a complete and varied content. All the didactic materials adopted during the course such as press articles, literature texts, films, audio media and others bring to class an optimal dynamic. Therefore, they offer a more practical approach to the language and understand all aspects of French and Swiss culture. Each daily class includes progressive learning of grammar, spelling, conjugation and vocabulary. Conscious of the importance of fluency in spoken language, I also devote a large part to speaking and conversation.

    GERMAN LESSONS BEGINNERS CHILDREN/ TEENS (taught in English or French)
    Do you want your children/teens to immerse themselves in the German language? The German lessons are usually taught in English in small groups (but can also be taught in French if the student doesn't know the English language). Private lessons can also be organised both in German (beginners) and in English (all levels). Children are said to be fast learners; through the interactive activities, they will be eager to learn the language, remember what they learned and apply their language skills in real life context. Why learn German? German has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union. German is among the ten most commonly spoken languages in the world. It's always a huge advantage to know the German Language when working in Europe and even in non-European countries, most of the time, employers will look after employees who can speak many languages and in particular German. Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate your child/teenager in one of my classes. :-)

    French private lessons: Language and communication [ONLINE]
    I am a French teacher, an academician. I have been teaching French, language and communication since 2012. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English and a little Turkish. I explain my classes in French, in Arabic or in Spanish, according to your choice. During the session I explain the course that suits your needs. There is also the option to create an open discussion so that you can speak fluently over time and avoid grammatical gaps. And at the end of each session, I give "lessons" with "exercises" to do as homework to continue our accompaniment and increase your level.

    French lesson (ONLINE) - French course (ONLINE)
    EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn French, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn French, whether it's from zero or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to introduce myself, how to make an appointment, do the shopping, go to the doctor, French at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice.

    Olivier
    Primary and College French Courses (95,92,93,75)
    Hello everyone ! My name is Olivier, I have been providing tutoring professionally since 2014. No longer a student, I will therefore be available throughout the school year. I can help your child in Maths, French and English whether he is in primary or college. I work for myself but also for all the following organizations: Acadomia, Complétude, Laureate, Matelem, Keepschool, Anacours, Les Cours Legendre, Domicours, Addoceo and Meet In Class. I come to your home in 95, 92, 93 and 75 but I can also give lessons by Skype. My calm, my pedagogy and my natural authority allow me to be very efficient in my work. I took the recruitment competition for a school teacher which allowed me to get to know the school program well. I also have a bachelor's degree in psychology. Individual lessons: I try to discuss with the parents in order to know the school problems of their child to be able to better orient my lessons. I then ask the child to tell me his difficulties in order to see if the parents and the child have the same perception. When the balance sheet is established I question the student in order to know what he is studying in class so that I can follow the program while trying to review specific points not assimilated. I use his lessons and his textbooks but if I need them I use the material I have. For the next class I can bring back exercises that I have at home or that I find on the internet. Group lessons of 4 students max I question the students to find out what they have already studied in class in order to follow the program. If they all have difficulty on the same topic, we go over the lesson together. If despite everything a student has not understood I ask another to explain to him in his words. Interaction between students is very important. If the students are having difficulty with different themes I try to find common themes that I can review with some students while I review a different chapter with another. For lessons in small groups (4 students max) I do 2-hour sessions so that it is also profitable for each student. See you soon !

    Adrien
    Course in literary subjects (French - History-Geography- Philosophy)
    Graduated with a master's degree in modern letters, I offer methodological assistance in literary subjects (French, History-Geography, Philosophy). My main goal is to teach students how to get the right reflexes when faced with a question or a text: for that, I will come back to the "essentials" (essay, commentary, text explanation). My second goal is to develop the literary culture of the students: it is as much about discovering authors who can complete his lessons, as it is about making people understand how to make intelligent use of their culture and what they already know.
