Noémie - Dudelange$42
Trusted teacher: Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

Elise - Écublens$67
Trusted teacher: 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 student will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, argue coherently (and convincingly) and enrich his vocabulary. It is essential for me to have written work from the student between each lesson. 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.

Peishan - Geneva$51
Trusted teacher: Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

Ziying - Shanghai$18
Trusted teacher: Here's what I can do for you: - Develop a reading habit (a book a week is not an unreasonable goal); - Teach you how to speed-read so you can read twice, or thrice, as fast without loss in comprehension (speed-reading is really just a fancy name for college-level reading skills, a phenomenon which can be taught and practised without recourse to magical beliefs); - Take you through a tour through the body of Western Classics that Wikipedia defines as a "body of high culture literature, music, philosophy, and works of art ... from Socrates to Wittgenstein in philosophy, and from Homer to James Joyce in literature"; - And finally, be an English conversational partner and personal tutor who does all the usual things to help you enjoy speaking and reading in English (about how English is formally taught, most "dreaded" English tests and exams are really variants of IQ tests that have little to no relations to how a language is learned and acquired).

Trusted teacher: Dear All, Whether you are new to learning the French language, whether you wish to enrich your knowledge or whether you are aiming for its oral, written and literary mastery, I will be happy to share my passion for the French language with you. I offer private lessons adapted to your current level and your ambitions, in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. We will cover these four key chapters together through a continuous, methodical and participatory learning process: - Grammar; - Vocabulary; - Punctuation; and - Oral pronunciation. It should be noted that the course dedicated to beginners includes a detailed and complete introduction of one hour preparing for the development of the four chapters mentioned above. In a more personalized approach and at your request, we can also address and deepen more specific topics, such as: - the syntax ; - the analysis of text(s); - literary genres; - the history of the language and its roots (Greco-Latin); - the linguistic and communicational specificities within the Francophonie; - reading a book of your choice or my recommendation (from "The Little Prince" by Saint-Exupéry to "Un Amour de Swann" by Marcel Proust). The private lessons that I offer you can, of course, be part of the continuity or the reinforcement of academic courses that you would already follow at school, at the University or elsewhere. As such, your personal media will be welcome (books, notebooks, sheets, etc.). Hoping to be able to contribute to your learning, I remain at your disposal for any further information and wish you much success in your efforts. Yours sincerely, Stephane
