I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.

Hello there! Let me start by introducing myself first... My name is Zaha aka Fleur. I have graduated with a master degree in Contemporary Fashion Design from IFA Paris. Since then I have been giving lessons to fashion students in Paris. I teach pattern making, draping, sewing, hand embroidery, natural dyeing techniques, creative techniques to develop a collection, different techniques of research and development, color theory, motif development, flat sketches, illustrations, etc... Basically everything you need to know about fashion! I pay careful attention to each of my students and then plan the lessons effectively so that it is more easier for them to understand and remember it in the long term. I also give out useful tips to my students time to time which can be further helpful for them.

Yomna
Homework help and tutoring in Maths, English, French (up to second level)
Hello, Condorcet high school student in Paris, I want to transmit all my knowledge acquired over the years to different student profiles, whether it is simply to build the bases or on the contrary to solidify them to achieve excellence. I can therefore easily adapt to each type of personality in the following subjects: English (pronunciation, grammar, oral expression), French (grammar, spelling, conjugation) and mathematics (up to the second program). The purpose of these courses is to meet your expectations perfectly. I will not allow myself to botch my explanations but rather to take my time with the student to make him understand my methods and advice that I will propose to succeed. It might even be easier for her to learn with someone close to her age. For more information, do not hesitate to contact me.
