Lucie - Edinburgh29€
Trusted teacher: 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 doctor, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehension. 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. During the first lesson, we will talk about your goals as well as your level, so I can create a lesson for you. 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. Classes take place via Zoom or Google Meet. Before booking a class, please send me a message to confirm availability.

The course will be lead in the comfort of my studio. It is one to one class. The aim of the course will be to show, using practical demonstrations how a simple straight forward painting method can be an effective way of achieving fresh-looking painting. The participants will learn the main principles of watercolour technique, composition, and mixing colours. They will learn how to create a complete painting fitting up sketches, photographs and still life objects. They will learn how to improvise using additional materials as masking fluid, salt, sponge etc. At the end of the course participants will go home with many small experiments on paper and one or two completed paintings, depending on desire. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: I am going to combine talking, demonstration and working with participant on their projects. The sessions will be more practical with a lot of demonstrations and experiments. Use hands-on technique. During the course I am going to use photographs, still life and books as inspirational images (mainly botanical) for the main projects and experiments. Participants are welcome to bring their own photographs. First three weeks participants will improvise on many different pieces of paper. They will learn how to make a basic sketch on to the paper with 2B pencil. I will introduce some principles of watercolour technique. We going to learn and explore watercolour technique in combination with other materials for creating interesting effects. I am going to talk about the colours and light in painting. Participants will learn about primary, secondary colours, about the light and contrast. Colour temperature and how it helps with the perspective. There will be demonstration of some useful colour mixes. Simple rules of composition will be introduced as well. We going to explore brush strokes and how to make different marks on paper. Experiments with salt, beads, collage, and masking fluid will be part of the course. When the participants feel familiar and confident with the technique, we will start working on the main project after the third week. WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: Basic principles of watercolour technique, colour mixing, composition and perspective. How to use masking fluid. How to combine additional materials (salt, beads, leaves, sponge) for creating texture and other effects on painting. The techniques we going to explore are wet in wet, using masking fluid and lifting, using salt, adding texture, seeds, collage, using gesso, combing watercolours with ink. RESOURCES REQUIRED BY STUDENTS / ADDITIONAL COSTS: Watercolour paints, one small tube of acrylic-white; Brushes, large and medium rounded brushes.

Trusted teacher: I have been working in the Adult Learning and Career Development sectors for more than 12 years, supporting people to grow and develop both personally and professionally. I have also worked in counselling settings with young people, adults and couples, as well as managing a mentoring project and undertaking academic proof-reading, and all these experiences inform my methods now. I blend a person-centred focus with a practical and structured approach to good effect. I believe that professional development goes hand-in-hand with increased understanding of self and others, also known as emotional intelligence. Understanding and valuing your own strengths and vulnerabilities helps you communicate more strongly and create more honest, productive relationships, both at home and at work, and can impact on your ability to make a convincing argument in written form as well. I am happy to meet you at your home, at my home or at another location convenient to us both, or we can work via webcam. I normally prepare tasks or concepts to consider between meetings, and always tailor the sessions to what you most need or want to get out of them. If you want a simple listening ear, that is fine - if you want someone to create a schedule to help you stick to goals, I can do that. We can decide between us what might best help you get where you want to in your life or career. The availability in the calendar below is just a guide, I can work around your schedule, so please feel free to ask about specific days or times.

Private lessons of violin and viola, solfeggio, improvisation, and chamber music (Edinburgh)
Emma
I booked Emma to provide five half-hour lessons for my 9-year-old daughter as an introduction to improvising. She managed to quickly assess my daughter's initial abilities, and come up with some solid starting points that were all well-explained and which my daughter understood and enjoyed. Many thanks!

Lucie
I am super happy with the lessons Lucie provides. She is very kind and patient. Lucie comes very well prepared and gives homework that challenges me. She has a very nice way of explaining things and we can also have a good laugh in between exercises!
