Paul-Antoine
Private French lessons (open to schoolchildren and those wishing to learn French)
Hello, My name is Paul-Antoine and I live in Amsterdam where I am a student. I am currently studying at the University of Amsterdam in the PPLE bachelor (Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics). From French parents, I followed all my education in the French system abroad and I speak French fluently. In these support courses which can be academic or simply an aid to the deepening of the language, I will bring my personal culture and my recent readings which will also allow the student to discover another facet of French literature. In addition, these courses are also open to those who simply want to learn French. If you would like more information on the learning methods that I will be offering, I invite you to contact me. Regards, Paul Anthony

Spanish classes. Basic, intermediate and advanced levels. Conversation and grammar, all ages
Me especializo en que el estudiantes logre mantener una conversacion fluida en español utilizando la hora de clase para mejorar pronunciacion y fluidez. A la vez se le brinda al estudiante una guia practica donde se le explicara la gramatica y podra hacer infinitos ejercicios practicos que le ayuden a mejorar su comprension y analisis de texto. Tambien trabajamos con imagenes, sonidos y videos para que el estudiante logre reconocer, interpretar por el mismo y mejorar su capacidad auditiva. En los niveles basicos e intermedios utilizo un sistema donde el estudiante pueda escuchar, copiar y repetir informacion similando el inicio de aprendizaje de su idioma natal. Asigno tareas despues de cada leccion e informo el progreso del estudiante mes a mes.I specialize in students being able to maintain a fluent conversation in Spanish using class time to improve pronunciation and fluency. At the same time, the student is given a practical guide where the grammar will be explained and they will be able to do infinite practical exercises that will help them improve their comprehension and text analysis. We also work with images, sounds and videos so that the student can recognize, interpret for himself and improve his hearing. In the basic and intermediate levels I use a system where the student can listen, copy and repeat information similar to the beginning of learning their native language. I assign homework after each lesson and report student progress month by month

Economics (Secondary to University levels) and English (Primary level) Tutoring
Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.
