Marianne custmoizes the class to my needs and standard. On top of that she makes the learning fun and simple to understand.
I have had French lessons with Marianne for several months now. The lessons are always great. Marianne has very friendly teaching style that makes the lessons fun while still really productive. She has the flexibility and understanding to adjust to the needs and skill level of the student, and the patience to guide and motivate even the slowest learners (read: me). Strongly recommended!
Marianne has made me look forward to French lessons for the first time! She makes sure that the content and methods are suited to your needs and interests and always keeps the class interesting. I feel much more confident speaking French in informal and professional settings, and my French grammar has significantly improved. 10/10 recommend!
Very good session with Marianne.
Marianne is a great French tutor - friendly, approachable, passionate about teaching French, and eager to tailor the course to the student's needs. She makes the student feel comfortable enough to make mistakes and learn from failures. I'd recommend her to other English speakers trying to learn French!

Non-academic Latin lessons. Multilingual teacher with 9 years of experience. Pronunciation, historical linguistics, conceptual semantics.
Contrary to popular belief, learning Latin is not like learning the phone book by heart. I offer you Latin lessons that are unlike any other. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you take the train back and forth every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Learn the schedules by heart. 2) Note that the train arrives every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in study notebooks and in ordinary courses, it is the first approach which is adopted - in the courses that I offer you, it is the second because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both students and adults who want to learn the Latin language or deepen their knowledge without time-consuming detours through the insanities of school methods which do not produce results. Learning is easy but unlearning what has become a bad habit is extremely difficult. All the more important it is to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. With my tailor-made teaching you will accelerate your learning in a positive state of mind. I offer individual or group Latin lessons (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive sciences and in particular historical linguistics. What will not be the subject of the course: learn lists of verbs; learn lists of nouns with their gender; learn words with their translations; memory card game; doing school exercises; follow the program in a notebook; impose French grammar on the Latin language. What matters to me in particular: motivate my student and give him a learning rhythm; encourage creativity; make friends with language; letters and their sounds strengthen your memory by working on the phonological loop; teach construction plans instead of having people learn sentences by heart; explain how the language works to make my student independent as quickly as possible; breaking preconceived ideas such as the gammatical gender would have a link with the biological gender, the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, the verbs would be irregular, the declension would be random and therefore to be learned with each verb... ; place practice at the center and articulate grammar around practice. In the context of a first course, you can get a well-founded idea of my pedagogy. I look forward to meeting you.

Private lessons in History, French and Art History
Good morning ! I am currently a master's student in general history at the University of Geneva. My studies allowed me to acquire a solid base of knowledge and skills, both in writing and in research. My knowledge of historical facts as well as Latin and ancient Greek will allow me, I hope, to be able to push the explanations given by the teachers in class and perhaps lift the veil on possible misunderstandings on the part of the students. The objective is to support students in difficulty as well as those who would simply like to consolidate their knowledge. In both cases, I am keen to be able to make the disciplines that I teach a little more digestible and to arouse students' interest in history, literature and the arts, to show them that not everything is not just a matter of stupid and nasty cramming, and that understanding always takes precedence over rote. It also seems essential to me to acquire a good sense of organization, which is the source of all effective and useful work. Therefore, if some students seem to be having difficulty with their homework and the organization of their lessons, I would be very happy to be able to help in this regard. Looking forward to meeting you, by webcam or live!

French lessons given by a motivated and motivating teacher!
Teacher for more than seven years in Geneva, I am passionate about my work and, in general, by the French language. I can help you in language as in literature; together we will find the means for you to progress. My goal is to give meaning to knowledge and to show that we can study French while having fun! I also have a master's degree in modern French, general history and French didactics. I offer weekly monitoring through an online platform, so you can measure your progress and practice outside of lessons. I like to offer several means of learning, from the most basic (doing exercises, copying sentences) to the most modern (playing small games, watching videos ...). It all depends on the student and their expectations. No method is imposed; the important thing is that you feel good and that you can familiarize yourself with the tools adapted to your profile. It is quite possible for me to help with the writing / correction of work, to finish; I will not do them for you of course, but can provide you with the support and follow-up you need to make them happen. See you soon !
