French and English for Foreign Speakers, conversation or test prep tutoring

I love the French language and pass this on to my students when I teach. Lots of speaking, listening to everyday conversations in various contexts, French songs, practising grammar and new vocabulary. Suitable for school children or adults.
English as a second language is another speciality of mine. I make my lessons interesting and fun. Speaking is the most important part but also writing notes as it is easier to remember afterwards. Listening to conversations and answering questions on them afterwards, while always checking grammar. I can guarantee fast progress.

English lessons (online) - English lessons (online)
Hello, my name is Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn English, either from scratch 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 your knowledge. I always structure my classes around real-life themes (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, how to shop, how to go to the doctor, talk at work, etc). We will see grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation together. If you are intermediate, we will also do courses on texts. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice. Please note that all my classes are online (Skype or Google Meet).

Hola !!! Hi everyone! Bonjour!My name is Natalie. I teach French, Spanish, Russian, and Portuguese! I am an enthusiastic tutor who can make learning fun and relevant. I aim to make ideas clear to the student, in order that they can use them fluidly and flexibly, and to encourage genuine understanding. I enjoy teaching and believe learning starts with the learner, adapting ideas and course content to meet their interests and needs. I have been teaching these languages for 11 years. I have a Master's degree in English language and literature, a Master's degree with honours in Tourism, Hotel and Restaurant Business and a Master's degree in International Law. I also earned diplomas from the Ministry of Education of France : DELF; Spanish diplomas DELE from Cervantes Institute (Madrid), German diploma from Goethe Institute and Japanese - Language Profiency diploma (Tokyo). I am experienced both with teaching children and adults for business, pleasure or exams. I prepare students for their GCSE/iGCSE, leading them to enter leading prep schools and universities We practise speaking, reading and writing with my students. I teach from scratch and to a desirable result! I am very friendly and the atmosphere is always nice during the lesson! If you have any questions , don’t hesitate to ask, I will be glad to answer!

Learn French with fun ! (kids, teens & adults - all levels accepted)
Hello :) You have difficulties to understand and/or speak French? You need to prepare for a DELF/DALF exam? You need to progress quickly? Good news ! I can help you :) My name is Nina & I've been teaching French for 8 years. I have a master's degree in teaching & a certification to correct and examine DELF/DALF exams with Alliance française. Most of my classes focus on speaking because it is often the most difficult skill to master and requires the most practice. However, I adapt each class according to your level, goals and interests so we can also focus on specific needs (DELF/DALF preparation, business French...) I love to teach through culture & authentic documents (songs, newspaper articles, movie clips...) because it makes the lessons more lively, interesting & FUN! I take notes during the lesson in order to offer you a corrective assessment and exercises to remedy your mistakes. Learning a language requires regularity so I would also give you homework & recommend you websites, movies, series, shows so that you can continue to learn outside the classroom ;) See you soon :)

(I)GCSE English Literature / IB English Literature
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. Ready to leave unsatisfactory essays in the past? Then contact me today!

Christophe
French: written/oral expression, grammar, conversation
Do you want to start learning French but have never learnt it before? Or maybe you want to perfect your understanding of French grammar, or your capacity to express yourself clearly, spontaneously and with confidence in French? Or work on pronunciation, perhaps improve your accent and learn more about French culture? I can help you with all of these, and not only because I was born and raised in France: after getting my Master's Degree in Lingustics and Anthropology from the School for Advanced Research in Paris - at the time I was also teaching private classes of French and English to high school and university students - I moved to the UK and studied theatre at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. There I worked on the skills any speaker needs to communicate clearly and convincingly: diction, voice projection, etc. These two approaches - linguistics, and theatre work - give me a strong foundation from which to help any student learn French. So jump on: we'll build a learning program tailored to your needs and make sure that the lessons are both dense and fun.

English lessons with a qualified ENGLISH SPEAKER from England, all levels, A-Levels IGCSEs IELTS...
Qualified English professor from England, I have a BA and MA in Linguistics (English). I am also qualified for the IELTS/TOEFL exams, IGCSEs A-Levels. I can also correct your written work (university thesis...). I adapt my lessons according to the level and needs of the student. We will work together on grammar, reading, speaking and listening. I will correct your pronunciation and I can give you some lessons based on phonetics. If you wish, we can also work on more specific subjects such as business, medicine, literature, interpreting etc. I travel a lot but that doesn't stop me from giving the lessons via webcam, very appreciated in general by the students (the notes written by the teacher are saved in the conversation, possibility to share the screen for interactive activities, no need to run to the teacher's house 😉 ). You can always try a course and judge for yourself (30 min or 1 hour). All the students who have had the lessons with me on Apprentus have repeatedly booked the lessons (as well as my former student Justine who had her lessons during the Covid and at that time, I was stuck abroad ;-) ). Recently, I had the pleasure to see my student improving from 20% to 90% on her English writing exam after only a few lessons. She has been taking lessons with me for almost a year and would like to continue her lessons. 😊 Still not sure whether the course is for you? Send me a message and I'll be glad to get back to you! See you soon ! 😊

Callista
GCSE/A Level/IB English Language and Literature tutoring
My classes will be based on exam and course preparation; which includes GCSE, A levels, and IB. Since my expertise is in English Literature, I will be teaching English Language and/or Literature. I can help guide students in understanding how to approach a literary text and most importantly, teaching them critical thinking. I have access to various academic sources such as JSTOR and Google Scholar. I also have subscriptions to various sites such as LitCharts, which is incredibly useful for English Literature courses. I also have copies of my previous essays from my high school days, which will be helpful in using it as an example of how to write an essay. I don't believe that there is one way of writing an essay - and I don't want students to just improve by copying - but having a sample essay can be useful to break down why it received good grades and analyse what made it work. Having completed various exams when I did my GCSEs and IB, I've also become accustomed to taking exams and I understand that doing well on exams is just a matter of practice. Through my classes, I can teach students how to approach various exams, including: how to break down questions, how to structure your time, and how to plan essays during an exam.

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.

Abolaji
A remote & onsite Arabic class where students can learn speaking, writing & reading. It's also a class where Quran and Islamic Studies are taught.
Hello! My name is Abolaji Abdrahman, from Nigeria. I have studied Arabic language (including reading, writing, listening and speaking skills). I also studied Quran & it's sciences, Tajweed, and other Islamic studies for more than fourteen years. I have studied Arabic from the International Open University and Arabic Institute. Currently, I'm also an Undergraduate student of Islamic Studies Education in the University of Lagos, Akoka. I also study under the tutelage of Sheikh Raslān from Egypt. I am a tutor of modern standard Arabic, classical Arabic (the language of Quran and Hadith) and colloquial Arabic ('āmiyyah). I love teaching Arabic because it is a very important language of Islam. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said we should love Arabic language because: he is an Arabic, the holy Quran is in Arabic language and the language of the paradise dwellers is Arabic. I also love teaching Arabic language because it is the fifth most spoken language in the world. It is the official language of 26 countries including 5 of the wealthiest countries in the world. And it's sixth most spoken language in the world. Learning such a language will avail you to the discovery of most interesting cultures in today's world. It will also look good in your resume. With Arabic language, you'll become a polyglot and you will be able to adapt to the environments of Arab. As a Muslim, with Arabic language, you'll have thorough understanding of Quran and Sunnah. I have been tutoring Arabic and Islamic Studies since 2014 both online and offline till date. I tutor the learners between the ages of 5 - 80. The focus of my instruction is on all the important skills of the language (reading, writing, listening and speaking), grammar and vocabulary development. With these, you'll be able to intermingle with Arabic speaking people in any Arab environment you find yourself and of course, you'll have yourself prepared and fit for any formal exam. I am also certified to instruct in the memorization of Quran, the sciences of Quran like different versions of Quranic recitation (riwāyāt), the exegesis of Quran (tafsīr), e.t.c I have syllabus and materials for tutoring Arabic efficiently within a period of six to twelve months. I'm well experienced in tutoring with these books: ➡️ I love Arabic ➡️ Lessons in Arabic language ➡️ Nūrul bayān ➡️ Iqrā' qirā'tī ➡️ Qā'idāh Nūrāniyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Makkiyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Baghdādiyyah ➡️ Arabic in your hands ➡️ Tuhfatul Atfāl ➡️ Exegesis of Ibn Kathīr e.t.c I also have experience in teaching English language and Philosophy. Learning English language helps in developing ideas and communicating them. I would be glad to be your tutor in this journey, choose me and you will not regret it. See you in my class! I have 7 years of teaching experience. I'm a certified Arabic and English teacher. I have TESL and simplified Arabic certification. My teaching method is philosophical, experimental and persuasive. My teaching approach is simple to complex.

My lessons are very interactive and focused on real life and cultural situations. I care about my students’ learning progress and achievements and I am keen to guide them in a friendly, dedicated and respectful manner.

Nida
Learn to confidently speak English - lessons can be in French, Urdu and Hindi
As someone who can speak 5 languages fluently, I have over the years grasped the best way to efficiently learn new languages. I have experience working in 2 primary schools, where I had the opportunity to observe other teachers and learn from good practice. Being a firm believer that everyone has a different way of learning, I will urge students to let me know in advance their desired way of learning so I can prepare curated lessons just for them to make the most of our lectures. As a future lawyer, I have experience in advocacy, mooting, public speak and will work towards making students feel comfortable in speaking English.
