Professional tutor of Russian, Mandarin Chinese and English

I am a native Russian speaker with a degree in Chinese and English linguistics. I have been teaching Russian, Chinese, and English students of different ages, nationalities, and learning backgrounds for more than 5 years.
I help them to overcome language barriers by speaking with them a foreign language from the very first lesson.
My lessons are never boring because I use different ways of teaching: songs, videos, flashcards, games, and quizzes.

If you start learning languages with me I will become not only your teacher but a mentor and a friend with whom you can talk about everything!

The age of students is not limited, it is never too late to start learning a foreign language!

Improve your CV/resume, cover letters, LinkedIn profile, thesis, and papers with a native English speaker
Are you applying for a job, study, or grant which requires a professional level of English? Then it's important that your application be error free and clearly communicate your strengths and motivations. Over the past five years I've helped dozens of colleagues, friends, and clients improve their job and study applications (CVs, cover letters, essays), prepare for interviews, and practice presentations. By working together to edit your documents, we'll identify common mistakes and opportunities for improvement. I can also help you customize your CV and cover letter to meet specific position requirements, which can greatly improve your chance of being selected or invited for an interview. As a working professional (I'm an engineer), I have plenty of experience applying to and interviewing with various types of companies. I also have experience on the other side of the table, scanning CVs, reading cover letters, and interviewing applicants. I look forward to working with you!

Voulez-vous parler la langue de Molière avec fluidité ? N'hésitez pas à me contacter !
Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne). En effet, j'enseigne mes cours de français aux étudiants qui ont une volonté de réussir et qui s'intéressent à apprendre petit à petit les bases de la langue, pour pouvoir par la suite les utiliser au cours d'une très vive conversation.

Laurie
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.
