Trusted teacher: Having difficulties analysing poems and prose in your (I) GCSE / IB English Literature course? Looking to amp your essays up a notch and finally get that A/A* or 6/7 that you have been dreaming of? I am here to help. The first thing to remember: though analysing works of literature isn't always fun, everybody can master the techniques of how to do it. But learning takes time, which the school teacher may often lack. Indeed, it has been my own experience that English teachers often choose width over depth, and so discussions are cut short for the sake of covering all elements of the teaching programme, leaving many interesting aspects of a particular work unexplored. Or sometimes it's just the attention that wanders off as the teacher is explaining these pesky concepts of "writer's voice", "writer's tone", "meter", "rhymescheme" and so on. Let me assure you: that, too, happens even to the best of us. What I can offer you is exactly what a teacher normally does not time for: exploring a work of literature in as much detail (both analytical and technical) as it takes to push the quality of your essays up to the desired level. My approach is informed by IB / (I)GSCE Eng Lit course guidelines to make sure that the quality of your answer would be developed in accordance with what examiners want to see. Armed with a deep passion for literature on the one hand (reading and writing poems and short stories are one of my favorite things to do) and knowledge of ways of critical analysis (obtained in IB English Lit and reinforced by philosophy courses on university level) which are of tremendous importance in literary analysis as well, I will show you how to deconstruct any piece, how to place it in its cultural context, and make educated guesses about the links between cultural context and the author's choice of stylistical devices. And best of all - unlike in the classroom, the learning experience is tailored to you (based on your way of learning / remembering) and delivered in a highly interactive way! The skills described above, coupled with general essay writing tips will lend authority and style to your summative essays and exam answers, boosting your academic confidence.

Noémie - Dudelange, Luxembourg35€
Trusted teacher: Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017.

Elise - Écublens, Switzerland70€
Trusted teacher: French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The student will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, argue coherently (and convincingly) and enrich his vocabulary. It is essential for me to have written work from the student between each lesson. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Trusted teacher: Hello everyone, My name is May, I am Franco-English and I offer online courses in French and methodology. I have been giving private lessons for 8 years. I always try to adapt myself as well as possible to each of my students, and to pass on to them the enthusiasm I have for French and literature. My classes are always caring, and demanding without being strict - I believe you learn best when you are relaxed and having fun. Especially when studying French, which is above all the exploration of different stories, different modes of expression, and a means of discovering other ways of thinking about the world, the things around us, human relationships. I remain attentive to my students and seek the best ways to move forward with them, to develop their analytical skills, and to consolidate their methodology while exploring fascinating subject matter. I live in London where I am a writer, actress and director. I did a baccalaureate L (with honors TB), studied in the hypokhâgne/khâgne literary preparatory class at the Lycée Henri IV, then at HEC Paris (Msc in Business) and at the Sorbonne (bachelor's degree in philosophy, honors TB). Do not hesitate to contact me for more information and to discuss your expectations. See you soon !
