About Me

Hi, I teach English, French and Yoga. Before moving to Canada, I lived in France for two years and before that in India.

In 2019-2020, I taught Business English to over 200 students of Master’s 1st and 2nd year for a total of over 400 hours in-classroom. I also conducted over 45 conversation sessions in smaller groups.

In 2018-19, I worked as an English language assistant at a middle school and a high school in France where I worked with students between the ages of 14 and 20 and we focused on English conversations, and we also studied specific topics in more detail.

I encourage students to participate and get the most out of our time together.

I am a professionally qualified chartered accountant from India with over 11 years of experience in the finance and accounting domain in Mumbai, but I wanted to explore careers and do something more people centric. I like having a positive impact on someone’s life and sharing my passion for languages. I started teaching English in 2018 and I really enjoy it.

French tutoring and French legal vocabulary (all ages)
This class can be about anything that you would like to practice, whether you would like to improve your fluency, your vocabulary, etc., and whether you're at an advanced level or a beginner. I grew up in a family passionate about languages and am excited to teach other people :)

Cristina Cervelló
SPANISH LESSONS FOR KIDS. PLAY & LEARN. Spanish for children.
I work with various materials created to meet the needs of each child; videos, music, games and stories. I do not use textbooks or exercises in which students have to mechanically repeat a certain model. The materials that I use in the classes are colorful, cared for and promote the autonomous learning that they will need in their future use outside the classroom. I believe that each student has his own learning rhythm and must be respected. With a good teacher everyone can reach their goal.

Anthony
Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

French tutoring all levels - Guidance study method
I teach French to almost all ages, from 10 to 18 years old. Also guiding, reading and correcting more extensive final projects (Dutch and French). I use, among other things, the practice tasks that handbooks offer on their site, and any practice material that the teacher offers via smart school. If necessary, I study together with the student until he / she can do it alone.

Virtual courses for all levels, all needs, all ages, individual or in groups (group of friends, family group, work group ...). Learn English from the start or strengthen your skills: grammar, writing, conversation, reading lessons ...!

Marcel
For motivated students who want to learn French with a smile ;-)
I like to use different methods to teach French to students. It can be through songs, drama, role play or videos. I also very often use situations close to the student's experience, such as describing places they have been or talking about what they have experienced. At the same time, I teach the grammar rules to the student. I now live in regions where French has been spoken for over 30 years. Because I have learned French myself (and I am still learning other languages), I can easily put myself in a student's shoes. I can teach in French, Dutch, English, German and Russian.

For the past 9 years I have taught at International Schools, given private tuition to students of different ages.

Alejandro & Eléa
Private maths, physics and French lessons and homework help, Tutors 5 years of experience
We are two math and physics tutors and help with homework for all levels up to university. We give our private lessons online via zoom. We have decided to create a common profile in order to best meet the demands of our students and thus ensure the most adequate support according to their profile and expectations. Alejandro: I am a master's student in sustainable development. Before that I obtained my Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at EPFL. I offer math / physics courses for students who need help to follow their courses as well as those in search of improvement. Elea: I graduated from the school of speech therapy (speech therapy) at La Sorbonne University in Paris in July. Before my training, I obtained my scientific baccalaureate with honors, and completed a year of preparation for speech therapy competitions. I thus have a scientific and literary background allowing me to support your child in all the subjects of his school curriculum. I would like to point out that I am offering private lessons here in a school setting and not speech therapy sessions which are part of the care. Nevertheless, my training allows me to demonstrate a pedagogy taking into account the profile of your child. Comprehensive and methodical, we personalize our lessons to be able to provide solid support to our students. Our courses allow you to acquire methods of reflection and resolution of exercises to better tackle these subjects. Our goal is to help our students gain confidence and skills in the targeted subjects, so they can face the exams with confidence. Are you not convinced of the effectiveness of online courses? We invite you to ask us for more information on the course of the distance learning courses, guaranteeing you a safe learning.

English Tutoring with Holistic Approach for All Levels
English has become the Lingua Franca of our times. It's a valuable skill to possess, beneficial for everyone. It comes handy in the ever-developing world that we live in and opens doors to many places, also in the mind. Additionally, bilingualism enhances the cognitive skills. Whether you'd like to improve your speaking skills and break the language barrier or you wish to prepare better for an English exam, I come to an aid. I'm a 3-year Linguistic student, I've achieved the C1+ levels in English, on the CEFR scale. I have 2 years of experience living in London, where I acquired RP (received pronunciation) and 3 years of experience in the International Academia (Amsterdam). My linguistic background gives me the capacity to explain the sounds and various processes of the language, from a perspective many natives do not know. In teaching, I practice the holistic approach. It is my belief that language is for people of every age and education, but I'm aware that everyone deserves a personal approach. That's why I offer the first meeting unpaid, so we can get acquainted and discuss the expectations of both sides. In classes, I will try to raise your confidence and knowledge in English, on 4 levels of proficiency: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. I will focus on your strengths and teach you how to use those to your advantage in learning. We will elicit your potential and together achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 17 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travelers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u surveyor museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable, and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point,s and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!

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.
