Individual or Small Group Lessons to Learn French (all levels) + Conversation classes + Literary club

IMMERSIVE FRENCH COURSES / PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION

- I offer attentive and demanding teaching, but I am convinced that this is only really possible in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere - you learn better when you dare to make mistakes!
- I do not believe that there is a single method or textbook suitable for everyone. Hence the importance for me of always getting to know my students in order to build an effective progression.
- I systematically tailor my lessons to the particular needs of each student, depending of course on his or her abilities but also on his or her favorite subjects.
- I ask the students to do exercises (lexical or grammatical) at home after each lesson, in electronic (pdf) or paper format. We systematically correct them at the beginning of each class.
- The dialogue between the students and the teacher is very important. Not a lesson goes by without them talking about life and the events in the news...
- I prepare for examinations (DL, DELF/DALF, TEF, TCF, CCIP, TELC, CIEP, LPE...)

About Me

With a degree in history and a doctorate in information science, I started as a librarian at INA (Paris) where I worked for many information professionals (journalists, university researchers, etc.), then, in the framework of my research, combining on a daily basis fields of study as varied as the history of ideas, sociology (sociology, sociology of communication, sociology of journalism), information and communication sciences, political history and economics.

In the Netherlands, I worked on the theme of the surveillance society and new ways of being informed and — in particular, on the theme of the new forms of circulation of news content. Then I wrote a thesis on the frameworks of a critical analysis of the journalistic representation.

I started teaching French at the Alliance Française, and after a few more years of study, I opened La Parenthèse in 2014.

I am a person who is interested in a thousand things (as much in literature as in astronomy, geopolitics and history) and I therefore read a lot of newspapers, magazines and journals, which allows me to feed my lessons with varied and continuously updated material.

Education

- 1997 : Licence et maitrise d'Histoire (Paris 1 Sorbonne) / “Public opinion
as perceived through the petitions addressed to the Chamber of Deputies between May 1873 and May 1877” (archived in the French National Library, BNF).
- 1998 : Professional degree (BA) in Information and Archiving Science and Techniques (specialization in audiovisual archiving) (1998) (Licence professionnelle “Sciences et Techniques de l’Information et de la Documentation”, option: audiovisuel) delivered by the Institut national des techniques de la documentation (INTD) and the Institut national de l’audiovisuel (National Audiovisual Institute, INA).
- 2004 : DEA (post-graduate degree) / Title: “Towards a study of silence in televised news”.
- 2010 : PhD (doctorat) / Title: “Ideology and journalistic representation. Towards a social critique-based analysis of information. A case-study of international news coverage by the French radio station France Inter”.

Experience / Qualifications

I first worked at the Alliance française (group A1, groups B1 and B2, conversation classes), then, as a teacher at La Parenthèse, I taught at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the International Criminal Court (ICC), the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), the International School of The Hague and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). This has enabled me to build up a solid educational background over the years.

Elise
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.

Improve your level in French by SKYPE (students and adults)
Having obtained a bachelor's degree, I can help any student with difficulties in French, both grammar and literature in itself. For tutoring courses, it is mainly a question of learning a certain methodology. I can accompany the student in order to read works effectively, make files of them, learn the precise vocabulary of analysis and learn to make a clear and effective plan. In terms of grammar or spelling, I can support the student through fun dictations and learning the rules of French. I am flexible of course and we can adapt the courses according to the needs of the moment (like the preparation of a homework, for example). I have also been teaching French as a Foreign Language (FLE) for two years. Using lessons based on numerous exercises, I teach French grammar in a fun way. I encourage everyone to speak as much French as possible, even beginners by starting the course with 10 minutes of discussion. I organize my lessons in a structured way, working on grammar but also texts, videos to better understand French culture!

Elodie
Private lessons for German - English - French
The student informs me of the concepts he wishes to see or review in French, German and / or English; I adapt and agree to give him a course of the best possible quality, as well as to provide him with exercises and advice adapted to his needs. I have completed my Bachelor in Multilingual Communication (Faculty of Translation and Interpretation of the University of Geneva) and am available to help other students and to share my knowledge with them. I started learning German over 15 years ago and have also completed numerous language stays in Germany, including a semester as an au pair with daily language lessons and an Erasmus semester as part of of my Bachelor. Furthermore, I have been speaking German daily in my private life for over two years now. As for English, I started learning it over 10 years ago; I also did a semester in Liverpool with daily lessons in a language school and have continued to practice it ever since, both personally and at university. I have obtained an official certificate attesting to my level of German (telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule), as well as a certificate attesting to my level of English (Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English - C1). Regarding French, it is my mother tongue and I am improving it day by day, particularly as part of my training as a translator at the University of Geneva. Ps: During the lockdown linked to Covid-19, I continued to give online lessons (via Skype); these classes went very well and were just as effective as the in-person classes. Given the current circumstances and because I no longer live in Geneva, I offer online courses (via Skype and with the help of other IT tools). I look forward to helping you in your learning process and passing on my passion for languages to you through our meetings! We look forward to meeting you soon! Elodie
