Hello, my class with Brigitte was great, we went through the basics and we shall thus continue once I am able to practice a little more. She was organized, kind, and took her time to teach me every detail of how to use the machine; and some basics in patters/ sewing patterns.
Brigitte was encouraging, inspiring and informative. I look forward to keep working with her.
Very helpful and knowledgeable! We enjoyed our conversation with her and look forward to her teaching our daughter and getting her on the right track.
Excellent teacher. Good to providing the necessary encouragement and feedback. Extremely knowledgable and supportive. Provides lots of ideas and pictures after lessons to build on session
It was a pleasure working with Brigitte. She knows a lot and has a great method of teaching. I feel I made good progress in just two hours.

I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

Fleur
Learn all you need to know about Fashion Design with a master graduate from Paris.
Hello there! Let me start by introducing myself first... My name is Zaha aka Fleur. I have graduated with a master degree in Contemporary Fashion Design from IFA Paris. Since then I have been giving lessons to fashion students in Paris. I teach pattern making, draping, sewing, hand embroidery, natural dyeing techniques, creative techniques to develop a collection, different techniques of research and development, color theory, motif development, flat sketches, illustrations, etc... Basically everything you need to know about fashion! I pay careful attention to each of my students and then plan the lessons effectively so that it is more easier for them to understand and remember it in the long term. I also give out useful tips to my students time to time which can be further helpful for them.

Gemma
Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.

Louise

Private English lessons for all levels (British accent)
I teach English lessons for all levels (school, university, adults). I graduated with an LLCER license (literature, languages, regional and foreign civilizations) in English and a research master's degree in English literature and translation professions. I have a perfect command of the English language and my gap year in the UK allowed me to perfect my British accent.

Sohail
Expert tutoring from Columbia University instructor
I have 21 years of in-person tutoring and 13 years of online tutoring experience in the world's most competitive markets: New York, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Istanbul and more. I’ve recently moved to Paris and want to do the same here. I am an expert in the following areas: all Math subjects up to Multi-variable Calculus, Physics, essay writing and literary composition, all areas of the SAT and ACT, the math sections/exams of the IB, AP, GMAT, GRE, GCSE and A-Levels tests/programs, film & video studies and production. I have prepared many students for Ivy League and Oxbridge admission, helped some achieve perfect SAT scores, created and taught a course at Columbia University, and tutored students at Eton and Harrow in the UK (where the Royal Family sends its children) and Brearley, Packer Collegiate, Saint Ann’s and other top schools in New York. Recently I was the main SAT course provider for the International School of Prague - the largest and most reputable international school in the Czech Republic - over a period of three years. I am also an industry expert in online tutoring: for the last 13 years I have taught well over a hundred students in five continents - completely online - for advanced subjects such as AP Calculus, A-Level Physics and IB Essay composition. I am a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and a native English speaker, born and raised in the US before moving to Europe more than 15 years ago. When I’m not tutoring or consulting education companies on their technological needs, I’m usually working on screenplays or films. Or traveling… at least I was before the pandemic :) We can work in-person in Paris or online. Even if you prefer to work in-person, I am happy to offer a 20-minute session online to answer your questions and provide a tutoring sample. Be sure to ask for this if interested. Speak to you soon.

Clémence
Tutoring and private lessons in English and French
I want to help students progress, especially through a personalized approach to each individual's needs. I can help with homework, revise lessons or explain concepts or chapters. All levels are welcome, as long as the student is willing and motivated. Having graduated last year, I know the programs well and I can put my knowledge at your disposal for more suitable courses. The lessons can be carried out remotely (by video) or at the student's home, according to your wishes. They can last between 30min and 1h30 (preferably at least 1 hour if I move). If you want me to move but you don't live exactly in the planned area, please feel free to send me a message.

Emma
Trilingual Tutor Offers English Classes (Online/in Paris)
Bonjour! My name is Emma, I'm 22 and both French & English (I have both passports!). While I'm originally from Toulouse, I moved to Hamburg aged 9 and stayed there until the end of high school. I speak French and English fluently along with German (C1-C2) and Spanish (B1-B2). I graduated from the University of Southampton last year with a First-Class Honours BA in Film and English literature and I'm about to start my masters in Film Production at la Sorbonne Nouvelle. I have been working as an English and French tutor since 2016, both at home and online (Zoom, Skype). I have experience with students aged 6-18. I structure my lessons according to my their needs, homework and the topics they are working on at school. I like to incorporate my passion for film and literature during my lessons by asking my students to watch specific films or read short stories and/or books we can then discuss and sometimes work on. With younger students, I like to read them stories and play games (Memory, Guess Who? etc.) that will allow them to use the content we covered beforehand. When online teaching, I also use British Council learning games to make the tutoring session more interactive and interesting.

Cours de soutien et approfondissement (français, maths, histoire-géo, anglais, espagnol, svt, aide aux devoirs...) niveau collège et lycée

Je propose aussi des exercices personnels pour travailler les connaissances et assimiler une méthode de travail qui sera utile tout au long de la scolarité. Toutes les matières niveau collège et lycée pourront être vues.

Romain
Private lessons in Mathematics (6th to Terminale)
Methodical and patient, I wish to bring my knowledge in Mathematics and my pedagogy to students having some difficulties or wishing to go further. I consider that any difficulty can be overcome, because it often results from a simple lack of method or motivation. I am committed to helping you or your child with all the tools at my disposal.

Enora
Homework help / Tutoring from 6th to Seconde
A 21-year-old student, I am currently in the third year of my dual architecture-engineer training program (ENSA Paris La Villette / École des Ingénieurs de la Ville de Paris). I offer homework help in all subjects for students from sixth to second, in order to deepen their work and / or reduce their difficulties. Patient and attentive, I will be able to adapt to the profile of the student to move forward at their own pace.

Mia
Academic support and homework help CP in Terminale classes
I offer tutoring for all subjects and help with homework while motivating the child's curiosity, because a curious child is a free child. I am also an English speaker, so I can also offer homework help in English (all subjects too).
