Help for writing final works and presentations (French-History-Human Sciences)
Passionate about history, I am at your disposal for any help you would need for the writing of your presentations, end of studies and dissertations in EDM / geography / human sciences and French. Favoring efficiency, I restructure and correct your texts (or your courses) to make your subjects as alive as possible. All seriously, but always in a good mood. I commit myself to correct you and to send the tests regularly after having fixed a schedule of work. But you remain responsible and master of your TFE / memory. In my opinion, teamwork remains the key to success. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me, I will answer in all circumstances!

Généalogie familiale et recherches ciblées - Construire son arbre généalogique
Vous désirez en connaitre un peu plus sur votre histoire familiale, toutefois, vous ne savez pas par ou commencer? Votre grande-tante (ou votre grand-pere peut-etre) vous a fourni des informations sur ce fameux ancetre noble dont la famille descendrait et vous aimeriez en savoir un peu plus sur cet illustre personnage dont on vous a parlé pour confirmer ces dires? Ou alors, vous n’avez simplement aucune information fiable sur vos ancetres au-delà de vos grands parents et cela vous intéresserait de pouvoir nommer vos arrières-grands-parents, découvrir où ils habitaient, quels métiers ils exercaient, ou encore peut etre connaitre leurs hobbys favoris (on peut en effet découvrir énormement d’informations sur nos ancetres grace à des recherches un peu plus poussées). Il se peut également, que vous vous trouviez face à une impasse dans vos recherches et que vous apprécieriez l’aide d’une personne extérieure: quand on est très impliqué dans sa généalogie, il est parfois utile d’avoir un intervenant neutre qui nous aide avec le recul nécessaire pour y voir plus clair et débloquer une situation compliquée. Dans ce cours, je vous propose une immersion dans votre histoire familiale qui vous permettra de mieux connaitre vos ancetres, mais aussi mieux vous connaitre vous-meme.“ Lorsque tu ne sais pas où tu vas, regarde d'où tu viens” (Proverbe Africain). Lors de nos rencontres, nous travaillerons sur les étapes necessaires et essentielles pour découvrir vos racines familiales et créer, petit à petit, un arbre généalogique passionnant et fascinant que vous serez fier/fière de prséenter à votre famille et entourage! Voilà plus de 25 ans que je me suis intéressé pour la premiere fois à l’histoire de ma famille, car j’avais entendu (comme c’est souvent le cas) une anecdote un peu “fantastique” autour d’un fameux ancetre! Mandaté par un proche, j’ai eu pour projet de vérifier cette information. Et c’est ainsi qu’est née ma passion pour cette discipline que j’exerce au quotidien personnellement, ou alors pour aider des clients à mieux organiser leurs recherches et aller de surprises en surprises! C'est lors du confinement de 2020 que j’ai entrepris une formation diplomante en généalogie. D'origines Irlande-USA-Canada et Suisse, mes deux langues principales de travail sont l'anglais et le francais. Je vous propose également mes services si vous désirez me confier la création et la présentation de votre arbre familial. N’hésitez pas à m’en faire part lors de notre premier contact!

German language, culture and history taught by a native
Learning a new language is both rewarding and extremely useful. German is spoken by tens of millions of people worldwide and can prove to be a valuable tool for the job market. Additionally, a plethora of immensely important works of philosophy, literature, psychology and many more fields were - and are - published in German, enabling a speaker to broaden their field of knowledge. This class is perfect for those who are wishing to learn a new language, improve upon existing knowledge of German or those wishing to explore German literature and history more closely.

I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge with a history degree. My goal is to help students learn English or prepare for Oxbridge Interviews.

English, French and geo-history tutoring for high school and college
Languages are sometimes scary looking and I have experienced that. With my more modern view of teaching, I will help you improve in these subjects with a method far removed from the traditional school method. I can help the youngest to better understand their lessons and prepare for exams. And I can allow adults to improve and teach them to become autonomous in their learning. My goal is to make learning more fun and enjoyable for everyone. Languages are sometimes scary and I have experienced that.

History of art history, art valuation and art market. For beginners, bachelors and masters
Art history is a hobby for some people, for others it is a working tool to analyse the social and cultural context. It helps you to orientate yourself in the world of rapid change and globalisation. The understanding of cultural discourse is a rich and unique background which may impress your interlocutor and gain you points in the eyes of your friends and colleagues. One of the main goals I try to achieve as a tutor is to encourage my students to explore the art world around them. In my lessons, I create a friendly environment to teach how to analyse paintings having factual information, and how to look at the art from the big scale perspective. The lessons are specifically tailored to my student's interests, weaknesses and concerns and from this nurture a solid learning style that they will be able to take with them to further education. I have a methodical approach to learning where every lesson is planned, and materials are distributed afterwards to the student. I am always ready to adapt the lessons quickly to the level of the student’s preparation and knowledge, receiving feedback from parents, students or teachers.

Learn Polish for everyday use, university, tourism with FUN and passion
I am a native speaker of Polish. I attended a Polish primary and secondary school and recently obtained a C2 exam. During our lessons, I'll help you develop your skills (oral/written, and not only). I'll also try to help you improve your pronunciation and understand those complex noun cases and verbs. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching Polish, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels and with a variety of needs, mainly individually. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I can prepare you for state certificates such as A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE).

Liv
Private lessons in History-Geography-Contemporary History- Ancient History
History is a subject often considered uninteresting. But I try to design my course according to your needs, your difficulties and even facilities in order to create a course in which you will flourish. Also, I am a student in History and therefore I can help you with the methodology and recommend several books to deepen your subjects. The course will be divided according to the periods: First, Ancient Rome, from Romulus to the death of Nero where we will study the different aspects of Roman life and its politics. Then, we will study the modern era with the plague epidemics, life under the old regime and the various kings as well as their life at court without forgetting the religious wars. The Middle Ages will be studied from the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476. We will go through Clovis, religion but also royalty. Finally, the contemporary era (where I am most comfortable), where we will study the Catholic Church, the working world but also the global aspects of this period. We will also focus on the two world wars with the civilian impacts they had. If you want a course on the HGGSP, we will follow the program according to the pace you study in class. I would also like to train you orally, by doing some courses, by teaching you to master a PowerPoint and finally by teaching you the methodology of the dissertation, the presentation, the text commentary and finally the bibliography.
