    English Tutoring through Conversations about Culture

    Hi my name is Jeanne!
    I'm French and study at the VU in Amsterdam.
    I lived in Australia growing up and have been studying English Literature, History, Economic, Politics, Philosophy and Language since the age of 4 (I am 21 now).
    The whole point of this tutoring session is for you to extend your English vocabulary through conversations in English about Culture (Art, Literature, Food, Politics....) from any country that interests you, as long as it is in English.
    I went to an international high-school in which I studied English Literature very intensively so I have good Literature analysis skills. I am also passionate about Culture and all forms of arts and have future plans that aim at professionalizing in this sector.

    So if you're looking to extend your English skills while having conversations about global Culture, these tutoring sessions are for you!

    About Me

    - I was born in France and grew up in French family. However I have lived in Australia during my childhood and have been in International Institutions since then. This multicultural environment has not only allowed me to become bilingual in French and English but has also developed a great sensitivity to multiculturalism.
    - I am passionate about Culture and all forms of art as I believe in the power of Culture in itself and am really convinced that politics and culture are intrinsically linked as art is a tool for social justice and a way to promote democratic values such as freedom, equality and tolerance. No matter your social status or cultural identity in front of an art piece we are all beings capable of emotions.
    - Tutoring sessions will allow me to associate these two parts of my identity: my passion for Culture and my multicultural past.

    Learn Italian the fun way, with a native speaker :)
    My name is Giustina, I am an Italian native speaker based in Amsterdam with a strong interest in psychology, culture and science. Over my career I had many students: my method is inspired to have fun while learning. I think this can be achieved by using power-point presentations, videos, conversation about topics you are more interested in. We can talk beforehand about what you expect and what are your goals and accordingly make your personal learning timeline. My education I studied Latin, Greek and Italian literature in high school. Afterwords I moved to science and I specialized in Medical Biotechnology and Oncology. I have a PhD in Biochemistry. I am now attending Psychology at VU University and improving my writing skills. Looking forward to meeting you!

    Private Italian language lessons for all levels
    Trained translator with five years of experience, particularly in international institutions in Europe and America, I offer tutoring courses for the Italian language for all levels, from primary to university. In addition to my Italian language diploma (Master 2), I have been immersed in this language from a young age, which means that I have mastered it perfectly. It is mainly a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the subject which poses a problem for him, but I also adapt to the specific requests of the pupils or the students. I can give grammar lessons as well as pronunciation lessons, oral comprehension, etc. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in Italian more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course can be done face-to-face at my home or by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

    De technologie om je Frans te verbeteren. Lessen met een gecertificeerde native docent.
    TECHNOLOGIEËN VOOR HET LEREN. Hallo, Mijn naam is Laurie en ik ben een onafhankelijke FLE-leraar, afgestudeerd in het Frans en Romaanse talen en literatuur sinds 2012. Ik heb vijf jaar ervaring onder mijn riem (in het buitenland en in België). Ik heb LangMethod gemaakt, een leermethode voor online cursussen. De cursus omvat: -Het materiaal (artikelen, video's, oefeningen van afbeeldingen en teksten, grammaticale theorie, links naar de oefeningen ...). Ik gebruik Google Doc, dus het beste is om een ​​Gmail-adres te hebben om er toegang toe te hebben. -De correctie van oefeningen buiten de les (de schriftelijke uitdrukkingen worden gecorrigeerd buiten de les, of met de student, volgens zijn behoeften). -Toegang tot een applicatie (gratis) om woordenschat op uw smartphone te bestuderen. -Een woordenschatblad - uitspraak - grammatica / vervoeging, verzonden na elke cursus. -Indien nodig, een vocabulaireopname (voor beginners). -De realisatie van online oefeningen en tests uit de verzonden vocabulairebladen. -Motivatie, gelach, goed humeur :-) Mijn methode: - Het is gebaseerd op spreken. -Voor grammatica gebruik ik een vraag / antwoord-methode (geleerd tijdens de training in het CERAN-centrum). -We werken aan de uitspraak met de verbotonale methode (oefeningen om je stem te zetten, voor ritme, enz.). Ik zou je misschien zelfs laten zingen! :-) -Alles gaat door het gesproken woord voordat het geschreven woord wordt doorlopen, maar ik pas me duidelijk aan aan de behoeften van de studenten. -De cursus is een beetje anders voor kinderen en adolescenten: ik gebruik interactieve games en kaarten via de webcam. Tot binnenkort! Laurie NB: Mogelijkheid om een ​​factuur te maken voor particulieren of bedrijven.

    Phillip
    Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
    I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you

    French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
    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 pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. 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.
